It’s Tuesday. April 14, 2020.
I’ve discovered that one of the voices inside my head, from time to time, tends to ask: now, what was that thing we were worrying about ?
Then the rest of Me tries to answer/used to answer and inevitably go back to those feelings of worry, stress, anxiety.
What if that voice inside my head, the one that requests to make prominent the worries, stressors, and anxieties in this life, is NOT the voice that I should be constantly listening to?
What if that voice is just an un-evolved part of me?
What if that voice had a name…
If I could name that Voice, could I consistently ask it, calmly, to relax and just enjoy the ride?
If I could name that Voice would it listen to Me overall?
That Voice wants to consistently remind me of all that I’ve done wrong, of all of the things that I could be doing better, of all of the bad things that are going on in my life, of everything that is not going “right”?
Isn’t just BEING ALIVE being right?
If there was no purpose to my existence I wouldn’t be here. At the same time, if that Voice was purposeless it wouldn’t exist…so how do we balance it?
There is no need for that Voice to be the dominant Voice in anyone’s head.
There is no need to focus on Destruction when Creation is underway.
Yes, the leaves fall every Fall, but there’s no need to dwell, for Spring is just on the horizon. So, through the Winter, we can focus on something else.
We can focus on time to rest, time to heal, time to appreciate Winter things; no need to mourn the loss of Summer and Fall.
The new growth is on the way.
So what are you focusing on growing in your mental garden, all the weeds, or all the beautiful things?
Take the time to tend to your Nature, nurture what you want to see thrive, and cultivate all of your best efforts.
Now is the time to try.
Let’s nurture a thriving world. Share this message with your community.
