It’s been a while since I said Hi. I’m sure you all understand. Work, home, commitments all conspire against us to do all the other things in life we do when we aren’t paying bills and keeping our families fed. It’s been a good time though because it’s given me the chance to look back and look forward and understand some things that I didn’t before. Things I may have sensed but not really had the time to contemplate or appreciate. It’s funny how things are revealed to us. Sometimes we sit in a quiet room for days trying to fathom some mystery of the universe and the answer comes to us in the midst of the busiest day we can imagine.
It just goes to show that one of the greatest skills in life we should try to cultivate is simply being open to what life presents us. You never know when that still, small voice is going to whisper the answer or a truth in your ear. We can prepare ourselves as much as we can through prayer, meditation, and introspection but the word will come when it comes; not before and not after. We simply need the patience, perseverance, and preparedness to wait for it to happen.
Take a moment before you start the day and stop. Ask yourself, “Am I open to the possibilities the universe has to offer me today?” If you are, you will be surprised what is out there, waiting to enlighten your day.
