When the Sun shines
We all feel happier and brighter when the sun shines, if things are going well in that moment of course! Often, even when the sun is shining and the great outdoors is calling, for most of us, life is good but for those who are suffering with illness or debility, mental health problems or loss the sunshine makes but a marginal difference!
Does this mean that we should not enjoy our happiness while it lasts? Of course we should and make the most of EVERY moment for life is made up of just that – moments – and we should make the most of each and every moment and memory, just a squirrel stores food for the winter, we should do the same with happy memories which can help to sustain us in times of difficulty!
“Look at a tree, a flower, a plant. Let your awareness rest upon it. How still they are, how deeply rooted in Being. Allow nature to teach you stillness” Eckhart Tolle
Living in the moment doesn’t come easily most of the time as we are drawn in all directions being overwhelmed often with the demands of daily life, but, the more we practice Present Moment Awareness the more we can store those awareness memories and sustain ourselves when the sun is not shining in our daily life!
It takes practice for sure and everyday practice, but it is a practice worth maintaining – preparation for when clouds arise and as surely as the night follows day there will be clouds in our life from time to time!
“How to be at peace now? By making peace with the present moment. The present moment is the field on which the game of life happens. It cannot happen anywhere else! Eckhart Tolle
Breathe, be still, allow awareness to rest and stay in any present moment, because the present moment is THE only moment that exists!
Last Night the Rain Spoke To Me
By Mary Oliver
The sky cleared.
I was standing
under a tree.
The tree was a tree
with happy leaves,
and I was myself,
and there were stars in the sky
that were also themselves
at the moment,
at which moment
my right hand
was holding my left hand
which was holding the tree
which was filled with stars
and the soft rain—
the wild and wondrous journeys
still to be ours.
