Whenever I sit myself to Breathe and disconnect from everything, my minds starts to wonder and remind me of the big to do list that she put in order.
Sometimes I indulge her a few rounds of chatter, because I know – for myself, and for now – that it’s nice to give the mind ‘her time’ as well. Right, well, after a few rounds of chatter, I take another deep and gentle breath…take a small step to the side… and allow myself to sync deeper into my belly.
The mind continues to point out what we have, yet, to do and tick off the list, and at that moment I tell her (and myself) :
hmm… indeed, there’s so much to do, but… wouldn’t I want to accomplish all these things from a place of fullness? From a place of being centered, pulling All of myself in the body, in the right now moment, and breathing All of myself, deep, deep, deep into my belly, into my toes, into my being… allowing me to really be present, and not scattered and all over the place, impatient and not, actually, loving myself?
And at that point, even the sweet mind takes a break, and allows All of me to be Here, in the body and in the chair that I happen to be in. She takes a break and actually enjoys the sweet breath of coming together, within myself.
I, then, loose myself in the ever flowing breath of me, syncing in the sweet right now moment, and even open up and feel myself beyond the dear mind, the tired body and beyond just this physical reality. And then, even a tear falls down my cheek, as I find myself in the acceptance of all that is, of all that I Am. A tear of joy and simplicity.
As I breathe myself and into myself, and as I feel deeply centered within, I, then, ask the mind: 𝑤ℎ𝑎𝑡 𝑤𝑎𝑠 𝑖𝑡 𝑡ℎ𝑎𝑡 𝑦𝑜𝑢 𝑤𝑎𝑛𝑡𝑒𝑑 𝑡𝑜 𝑑𝑜?
