Inspiration: To stay the course no matter what obstacles I may encounter.
Distractions. It is easy to be swayed by the mundane, yet sometimes overwhelming occurrences in our daily life. When we need to focus our energies in one direction, and something arises, it is easy to give in. This way, we no longer feel compelled to move forward towards our destination since this "distraction" is so ENERGIZING. Not so much in a positive manner. In a way that sets our emotions ablaze with fire. :)
Most recently, this has happened in my life. There is a trajectory I am on where all my energy has to go. Without going into story, I had something small,but monumental, fire my cylinders on all levels. This immediately took the forefront in my body and soul. Thank heaven, for the assistance of one of my teachers. I was able to get a handle on this within a short time. If I allowed this to get the best of me, I would be "distracted" from what I need to do right now.
How many of you allow "external" annoyances to overwhelm and take over?
It is our natural response to chaos and finding order. However, we can spiral into an endless pit of mind chatter. So the next time, something "blows your socks off", take a breathe, have a calming cup of chamomile tea and breathe. Ask the situation,"What is being asked of me now?" There is always a message in the discomfort.
Lastly, remember the famous words; "This too shall pass".
Have a very "peaceful" day.
