In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you. – Deepak Chopra
I saw this posted on a friends Linkedin Profile and it reached me deeply. The only thing I have ever known to do, is to move forward. But can we move forward while being still? I think so. You put one foot in front of the other and take Baby steps while keeping a still frame of mind. And you listen, deep, to what that voice is telling you, what God and your conscience are telling you. And you move forward in that stillness.
I hope to stop jumping, I hope to be still. One thing that I am proud of is even when life has been upsetting, it has not disturbed my Peace. And when you have that Peace, no matter how much pain of confusion is around, you are always grounded and will not loose your way. For this I am thankful. This has not always been the case and I have worked very hard to be in this place. That which brings you Peace, will bring you happiness.
You Pray, you focus, you enjoy the moments before you…and you take baby steps. And before you know it, those baby steps have taken you across miles of road, and you look up and see how far you have come.
Already life moves forward. I have my company arriving tomorrow and am happy for it. I am also looking forward to having someone to help with some house projects. There is a toilet which is running and I am told it is easy to fix…but I have no idea how to do it. I have a huge dart board that I need help hanging in my office. The big flat screen TV needs to have the wall mount installed, and I can’t do that by myself either. Then there is the surround sound system I have no idea how to install. Company, help with house projects, even sharing with cooking and the timing is perfect.
Yes, this is a time of Peace, it is Spring, the garden will have flowers blooming soon, my parents are healthy after a scare, I have the best friends in the world and I am blessed. And I wrap these blessing around me like a warm blanket, and I am still.
