Imagine something even money can’t buy
Imagine not wanting for anything
Imagine having what you need as well as desire
Without ever having to ask
This is life. We just don’t realize it yet.
The false masks aren’t needed
The money can’t buy friends or happiness… no matter how cliché that sounds
The empty smiles can’t fill the emptiness
So then you ask… where is it? How do I get it?
You get glimpses of it in every true moment
Every genuine smile
Every wholehearted laugh
Everytime the word “love” graces your ears
These are tiny everyday treasures
That should be cherished
It’s amazing how things seemingly insignificant
Can be the determining factor
Between a lie we have believed as reality
And a truth that can make life a dream.
So what was that piece from my journal about hey? I am a believer of manifestation. That we are the creators of our own heavens and hells. That we have trained our minds, or have had our minds trained, to think that this seemingly tangible world is our reality and the energies we exchange and the power behind thought and intention are the dreams. That money buys us stuff that make us happy and that love can’t fill our wallets. Depends on our perception I guess. What eyes we’re looking at the world through.
I’d invite you to take a second to stop. Right now…. Just stop whatever you’re doing. Feel the body you are in. Be conscious of what that body is doing. Are you playing with your hands as you read this? Are you tapping your foot or moving your mind elsewhere? Are you splitting your attention between multiple things?
Now… Inhale. Deep breath in. Feel the air as it enters your nostrils, travels into you head and down your throat feeling that rise in the belly.
Quiet down all that chatter in there. Listen to that silence. We’re so busy filling ourselves with thoughts and goals and “next steps” and we feel as though that is what is fueling us… keeping us going… but in this moment as you just take a breath and embody the stillness… experience how the silence actually fills you. Allows you to feel whole… even if just for that one breath.
I asked you to do that simply because experience is the best teacher. We can hear something, read something, talk about something and we can comprehend it intellectually but only through actual experience do we start to fully understand it. There are countless moments in our day that we can stop and bring our awareness to the stillness. Embody the bliss that comes in those moments. In time, those moments become minutes, those minutes become hours, those hours become days and those days then become a life. A lifetime of bliss through awareness and gratitude emitted through silence.
Take time today to breathe. To be still. To be grateful.
Until further inspiration hits….
