You Can Always Take One Step

March 19, 2020


Listen to the sound of the raindrops landing
on the skylight windows.
Let those raindrops
pass through your mind
and fill you up with life energy.
There is no food
more nourishing or tasty
then the present.

You can always take one step to increase your vitality. When I see I am being drained by what I am reading, I close my computer, or turn over the newspaper. This does not mean I am being inattentive to the world around me, but taking time to connect to myself helps me to be more fully available.
You can experience your body inhaling, and exhaling, and know that the body has weight on the ground. In this moment, connected to the body, you discover an inner quiet that can weather the storm. If you cultivate this quiet, it can become stronger than the fear. This isn’t difficult; in fact it is the most natural way of being. You first find your desire to practice this art of coming to yourself. Then you can do what is needed for your life with a clear mind.
