Into the looking glass..
I stare blankly into space, a small diary lies in front of me, empty and embroidered in lace. The dimly lit room is enchanted by music and the rich aroma of coffee seduces the air. Outside all is calm, a sky of black ink stretches far and a mosaic of stars give birth to light.
Life is long yet goes so fast and, at times, one finds themselves wishing away the hours as they creep by. I would love to write to you about how to truly appreciate life, yet to be honest I am not yet a master of that art and I like you, simply a student learning and growing from the teacher that is the universe.
Inevitably life will change, change is the only constant. We mourn the loss of time, nostalgically yearning for times that have been, regrettably dreaming of things that we should have seen. Through this process forgetting the now and forgetting how at that point way back then we probably dreamed for ‘other’ times. With memories flooding our emotions, it’s important to remember, you cannot bring these times back and the clock will continue ticking, if you didn’t do something there is a reason as to why and leave it at that.
To truly appreciate life is I feel one of the first steps to a fulfilling, balanced and creative life. As blossoms fall and streams flow, inspiration is everywhere. To see it, feel it and appreciate it though is the (at times) difficult part.
The room around me is a mess, and I do feel the want to clean and sort out the clutter which is slowly (but surely) engulfing my living space. I myself have been practicing more and more to appreciate everyday as it comes, I feel I had strayed from a path I set out on, though have found myself back on course and this fills me with inspiration.
“The beauty and charm of selfless love and service should not die away from the face of the earth. The world should know that a life of dedication is possible, that a life inspired by love and service to humanity is possible. Our compassion and acts of selflessness take us to the deeper truths. Detached,selfless action leads to liberation. Such action is not just work; it is karma yoga. ” — Mata Amritanandamayi
Until next time my darling..
