Time. It can crawl so slowly you feel helpless, waiting for a certain number to pop up on the clock; setting you free from whatever prison you feel like you’re in for the moment. Lately, the beauty in time (for me) is that it keeps ticking regardless of how the world is falling apart around me. I am watching the minutes tick into hours until I will begin my next adventure. “Be where you are as long as you’re there” echos in my mind – a truth I try to live by… and the only way I am able to be where I am now is because of the never-failing assurance that time will continue on, regardless of me; I don’t need to push it. It’s the one thing I don’t have to DO anything to make happen. Even meditating somewhat requires doing the not-doing. There is so much peace and beauty in this knowledge. Thank you, Love of the Universe, for time, and for giving me something that is always faithful.
Energy. Although having removed myself from the relationship I was in and having my living situation pulled out from under me, I am experiencing a calming peace. I attribute this peace to the prayers/positive energy being directed toward me by the many loving people around me, but I also feel the calm that remains due to the absence of the disrupted (and disruptive) spirit of the person I used to be with. This post is a reminder to myself to be cautious when choosing to entangle my life with another. The spiritual realm is so strong and affects one’s life in ways I don’t completely understand. The positive energy from a healthy soul is such a beautiful thing to be valued and cherished.
Only you can truly guard your heart.
