I’m not a great one for sitting about; relaxing for me is usually some kind of activity like running or martial arts. However this year I have been working on adjusting the balance between ‘doing’ and ‘being’, and I’ve found that giving myself more time and space to watch the world has opened up my levels of appreciation enormously, and with it my sense of wellbeing. Rubin Battino once gave a very special seminar for the members of Quest. He has worked with many terminally people and he made the comment that, at the end of life, all that’s left that matters is people and nature. I’ve found that, when I do less, these are the two things my appreciation turns to. And they’re the first things that drop out of my awareness when I get busy. maybe there’s something important in that.
This was posted in one of the Quest forum, and I thought it fitted beautifully with this general theme. Have a good journey today, and appreciate the people in your life, and the nature that surrounds you. Whatever your troubles, the birds are still singing.
