Pause in this moment
Touch the ebb and flow of life
Find your Middle Ground

Find your Middle Ground is about stepping away from stressful days and anxious minds, and taking time to pause.

When we are mindful of the present moment and simply allow it to be, we open a door to our natural state of being – accepting, loving, peaceful, kind and content. Most of us are so distracted and moving so fast that we get caught up in the world of “doing” or worrying about what we should be doing next.
Too much doing and thinking disconnects us from our sense of “being”and who we really are.

I write about finding this place of connection, contentment and peace in the highs and lows of life. I call it our Middle Ground.

* Back from Travels

Firth of Forth

Thrill of adventure
Joy and anticipation
Going with the flow.

Accept the ego’s
controlling reassurance
Bowing to the new.

Growing horizons
Loving moments filled with joy.
Travel from the soul.

All behind me now
The old world out of balance
To be born anew

In the Middle Ground.

It was a great trip, with some wonderful times with family. I’m looking forward to catching my breath and catching up over the next few days. xo

* Nature’s Rhythm

ebb and flow

ebb and flow by mike dawson

In nature there is a natural rhythm where everything pulses with energy.

We forget that we are a part of nature, not apart from it.

Take time to notice the ever present ebb and flow of the heart, breath, digestion, sleep and waking, wounding and healing, birth and death.

Everything comes and goes in the never-ending flow within all of us.

This reminds me of a favorite quote from Rumi:

letting go

“Your hand opens and closes, opens and closes. If it were always a fist or always stretched open, you would be paralysed. Your deepest presence is in every small contracting and expanding, the two as beautifully balanced and coordinated as birds’ wings.”

Let go of holding and go with nature’s flow.

* All Things Change

 everything changes

All things arise

Suffer change

And pass away.

This is their nature.

When you know this …

…you become still.

It is easy.

The Ashtavakra Gita

We spend so much time and energy avoiding the way life actually unfolds, and most of the time we are unaware that we are doing this.

We have created these habits over time to avoid facing the uncomfortable feelings that are a part of life.

When we pause and create spaciousness, the resistance begins to dissipate and our inner consciousness grows.

Each time we make space, trust grows.

The more we trust, the more we grow beyond our conditioning and habits and create more space.

With space, life flows freely.

Taking time to connect inwards will not save your life, but may save you from a life of struggle and discontent.
