This is an invitation to disconnect from all external distractions and reconnect with your most powerful source: YOU. As I said in last month’s blog, every month throughout 2020 I’m going to post a piece of writing without weaving it into a bigger theme or placing context around it. Read the selection and pay attention to what thought or feeling first comes to mind and then spend a few moments with that awareness (no excuses! A minute will suffice if that’s what’s available). Let whatever it is that wants to rise up, rise up – no judgements, no expectations. Feel free to write, draw, or share your experience in whatever way feels right for you…remember, though, the goal isn’t to do something this instant. Just notice and be curious (aka being mindful).
Month 8 of the 12 month invitation to insight:
“In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love. In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile. In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm. I realized, through it all, that in the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer. And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back”
