Just to be is a blessing

Just to be is a blessing

“Just to be is a blessing. Just to live is holy.” ~Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel

It’s so easy to spend our days doing and accomplishing and rushing from one task to the next in this busy world we living thinking that makes a full life, but there is holiness and so much blessing in stopping the busyness and just BEING.

Find a few moments in your day today to just BE.

Return to yourself

“If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now and when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.” ~Masaru Emoto

A good reminder that we can always come back to the present moment here and now to find our way back to our strength when we’ve gotten lost.

Have you lost sight of how beautiful you are? Come back to yourself and re-discover it!

Open your eyes

“It isn’t always a change of scenery needed to make life better. Sometimes it simply requires opening your eyes.” ~Richelle E. Goodrich

It’s so easy to believe that the grass is greener somewhere else (or some other time or under some other conditions), but our focus on wishing we were elsewhere causes us to miss out on the beauty and happiness available to us right here in this moment in this place.

Take a moment right now to be fully present here and now to truly see and appreciate how much good is already present.

“The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.” ~John Milton

The mind is a powerful thing, and too often allow its running programs to take over and create our reality unchecked. How much better it is to learn to work with our minds to create a reality that works well for us.
