It’s quiet this morning. Alone with only the sound of trickling water accompanying the soft music of Enya as they both melt into my still heart. I am feeling gratitude. I take this time to view the following video “The Life of Flowers.” My mind remembers reading a portion of Eckhart Tolle’s “The Power of Now” wherein he interprets the perfect example of God/Spirit as witnessing the stillness surrounding a … single flower.
Each week I treat my Self to fresh flowers; my way of saying “Thank you Spirit of Sharon for your willingness to show up in Life…to grow.” As each flower is, with great intention of giving gratitude, lovingly placed in its very own space within the collective vase, I remember Eckhart’s words and truly feel the esoteric message of each flower as it invites me to also rest within this space of stillness…of now.
Recently I read a posting on Facebook: “If you are feeling pain, you are living in the past. If you are feeling anxiety, you are living in the future. If you are feeling Peace…you are living in the Now.”
We are living in difficult times; yet, there is a beautiful invitation to learn, to grow, to become…to come in to Be-ing. They are there … the flowers … setting the example.
Leave quiet beauty where you travel.
