Find Your Middle Ground

Find Your Middle Ground is about finding your center of being and living life in loving balance.

“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” ~ Buddha

When we take time to pause and concentrate on the present moment, we open a door to our natural state of being – accepting, loving, peaceful, kind and happy. Most of us are so busy, distracted and moving so fast that we get caught up in the world of “doing” and loose touch with a sense of “being” and who we are. Many are also afraid to explore their inner world for fear of monsters and dragons. Yet, this is the gateway to the calm and loving center that is there for every one of us.

In this place, we are able to let go of judgments and how things should be, or comparing ourselves to others. We recognize that our thoughts are not the truth. We trust our intuition and have more clarity about ourselves and what is important. We become more focused and creative.

We allow ourselves to open up to what is in this moment. We connect with our authentic being and life energy. We begin to find contentment no matter what occurs in the highs and lows of life. We are in the flow of life!

  10. Like Janet Givens, I’ve come to your blog via Joan Rough’s blog, both mutual friends I’ve met face to face. We book lovers have strong bonds. Today my blog features a review of Louisa Adams’ biography, an English-American First Lady. I see you were born in Scotland. How wonderful to have the perspective of two cultures.
