June 22 Insights
I have been working toward discovering, or rediscovering as it were, my state of natural wakefulness. Wakefulness is our natural state: enlightened, complete, perfect in wisdom and compassion. It’s not something outside ourselves that we need to attain or become, it’s fully within us but as I’m learning requires effort and focus to find it.
I am on a journey to rediscover and uncover my true core, which has been heaped over, calloused, and consumed by things that so often send me from a place of peace to that of tension, anxiety and anger. I want to escape the prison of those things that often unbalance my otherwise happy and blessed existence – from the pettiness and petulance of others to the pains of my own insecurities.
So today I am thankful for those things along the journey that remind me where I’m going and encourage me to keep walking.
- A unselfishly warm smile from a hurting heart.
- A flower, unwavering in the sweltering heat.
- The touch of a furry paw on my cheek in the morning, gentle but insistent with love.
For what are you thankful?
