I believe deeply that life can be easier, a lot of the time. I believe that on most days, we "just" need to get rid of the weeds, the rocks - especially if they have been there a long time - and make some room. Room to breathe, room to hear our own thoughts, room to reconnect and just room to be. Away from the swirl of information, thoughts, questions, doubts and complications.
I believe it - and I am not immune to the temptation, the addiction.
When I began my September Retreat, I knew that I would want to make some changes, when I came home. On my last day there, I silently asked for some teachers to come my way.
And they have.
I had the great joy of listening to Matt Kahn speak, a few nights ago, and while most of what he said went somewhere else than my "remembering brain," a word stuck with me: uncomplication. Uncomplicating our lives, our minds, our ways of being.
I have been allowing this to settle into me in a deeper way, lately. I have been looking at some of the quiet agreements I have made with myself, over the years, and have become faithful to. Agreements such as "I check my email first thing in the morning. Every morning." That kind of thing. And reviewing that. Becoming much more intentional about what I do, and when. And how. So far, I am really liking the shift (it's not easy, as I get to see a whole lot of ways of being that I am not crazy about - which is perfect)
Today, I invite you to check in with you, and look at where you may have some lovely, peace giving uncomplicating to do.
And if that resonates with you, I invite you to make yourself a cup of tea, and sit with Jon Jandai for a few minutes. He is a good teacher.
I wish you a lovely rest of the day.
