Can I lose weight?
Can I find more time to spend with my family?
Can I make a difference?
Can I learn to play the piano?
Can I be more fair and honest at work?
Can I ? ? ?
Be honest for a moment. The answers to the above and many more similar questions are really within your control. You control your destiny. You make it happen. There is much Truth in the following.
If you think you can,
Or you think you can’t.
It is often said: “a picture is worth a thousand words”.
That being the case; what words does this photo say to you? About you? About how you live? About how you spend your time? About your past hopes & dreams? About your plans for the future?
About the beauty you have experienced, and the beauty you want to experience – in your life?
What are you doing to make all of that happen?
Be Still – – – and Know
So very often one can stay super busy – avoiding the real interior life. There is this, that, and the other thing that “must” be done, we so often tell ourselves. Most “busy” people would never admit that “keeping busy” is their way to avoid the deeper levels of Life. They may even think they know all the answers. I doubt that they even have discovered the questions.
May people no doubt don’t even know they are running right by what is most important — the moment. If people do know, they then know they are afraid to go within. At times, we have all been “they” – haven’t we! What a shame. What a waste of a life when it is never lived from within its core. One can so easily come to the other end of living, and never have lived. It is often so very difficult to – – – be still and know.
Reflect: What is this photo saying? What question, questions does it evoke, stir up within? What does it tell you about YOU; about YOUR relationship to the universe; about time and the quality of how you are using it; about this very moment – only here once, never to return; about ultimate meaning; about why are YOU here now, this moment?
