“When I look at a sunset I don’t find myself saying ‘soften the orange a little more, put a bit more purple on the base’, I don’t try and control a sunset. I watch in awe as it unfolds”~ Carl Rogers.
A beautiful reminder to fully appreciate the uniqueness of each other as we do the sunsets .... ❤️ #reflections#nature#ourbestteacher#beautyunfolding#eveningskies
Mindfulness for yr Monday ~ You do not have to always understand, in fact “Striving” to understand can get in the way of us living the miracle of life
I woke up this morning taking a little walk with my cup of tea.
Amazed as this spiders web glistened in the rising sun.
So many strands of intricacy
As each little strand so carefully spun
Yoga is like this as it is a process that cannot be rushed
Inviting us to look deeper at the Pillars of Mindfulness of Non Striving & Trust
Trust that ‘we do not know’
Stop striving to always understand
Stop look at nature, seeds of wisdom she sews
Open your eyes and see beauty in every strand
The need to know why can get in the way
Of enjoying the mystery that can be lived today
Charlottes web can teach us a great lesson indeed
Who knew a book my Mum gave me as a kid, was planting Mindful seeds
Maybe she was right we don’t always need to know “why” or to understand
As she read to me from the book of Charlottes Web held in her hand...... “Do you understand how there could be any writing in a spider's web?"
"Oh, no," said Dr. Dorian. "I don't understand it. But for that matter I don't understand how a spider learned to spin a web in the first place. When the words appeared, everyone said they were a miracle. But nobody pointed out that the web itself is a miracle." Today’s Mindfulness was inspired by Charlottes web and some words of wisdom from a great teacher @bryan_kest that popped inside my head (have shared them over on our Yoga NRG FB page) . Bryan is only making one stop this year in @Qld@brisbane so make sure you get your tickets early to Bryans Master Classes & Unique delivery of how we put Mindfulness into Action.
