* Inspiration – Roots and Rivers

Being rooted

“To stay present in everyday life, it helps to be deeply rooted within yourself; otherwise, the mind, which has incredible momentum, will drag you along like a wild river.”

Eckhart Tolle

I really appreciated this gentle reminder to root into our being in order to calm the mind…. and so I’m paying it forward today 🙂

  1. Wow, that’s a powerful quote Val – thank you for sharing it! That’s a great metaphor for what it feels like when anxious thoughts run through my mind. ❤

  2. Whenever I am grounding myself, I often imagine I am sinking deeply into the roots of the tree, solid and unmoving. Eckhart describes this beautifully! Thanks Val 🙂 Have a grounding day!

    • Thanks Colleen! Yes, when we are rooted we express ourselves more fully and are able to grow. It takes a lot more to topple us over as well 😉 Thanks for this insight!
