Yesterday, I walked a crowded beach, digging my toes into the soft white sand as I made my way past the clusters of sun-worshippers. I hadn’t been on this particularly beautiful beach for (I’m embarrassed to admit) years. I live only 20 minutes away, but have allowed my thoughts come between me and my true nature. The ocean, the sand, the sun, are all me, and I them. They have remained ever-present, a constant stream of the energy of the universe, while I distanced myself, preoccupied with thoughts about other things that separated me from this beauty right in my backyard.
I relinquished those thoughts and chose, instead, to connect with my self through the beauty of divine nature. It revived and realigned me with who I am. Today, on this Sunday morning, I am feeling connected and peaceful. Approaching my world from this place allows me to be of better service to those around me, because I have first nurtured my self.
I wish all of you a peaceful Sunday morning.
