It is challenging to try to be reflective when other priorities are taking up your head space. But in order to see through the right now, it is important to stop the noise so that you can see options and your path to inspired living. Focus on the learning and love that YOU need. Leave the head space to hear your heart. Take some time to be gentle with yourself so you can tap into the self-love that you need to navigate through the right now. I found the words regarding Learning and Love from the book Spirit @Work, by Lance Secretan impactful and right on time. I hope they are meaningful to you too:
Let me learn from the Mastery of others. Let me transcend my own experience and find new pathways to knowledge. Let me accept different perspectives, try new methods and contemplate new visions. May I always walk on the path towards Mastery, approaching each pebble, each obstacle, each crevice as an opportunity to increase my own capacity and to deepen my wisdom. May I take what I learn from mastering each challenge and strengthen my approach to the next. May I always guide others whom I meet on the learning path lovingly and gently, sharing wisdom. Learning is our shared journey in love.
Love is the life force that is everywhere - all powerful, all knowing. It is the divine wisdom of our center connecting us to all that is. In the difficult moments, help me gently bathe in the love within me. Let me love through my thoughts, my actions, my speech, my ears, acknowledging the love in me. I see the love all around me. My heart is peaceful.
The right now, is only right now. It is the valley you are going through for the time being. It will not be forever. Be kind to yourself and take the time you need to reacquaint you, to wonderful you.
