Are you thinking about the questions we post yesterday? Yes? Very nice : )) We are doing the same. Don’t expect that THE answer will come in these days while thinking about who you are. You were asleep for sooo many years, so how can you awake so quickly? With this mental practice we are just starting to let go. Each of us has a stressful life, fighting his way through the city jungle. Mostly we forget to just enjoy simple things. Today we would like to share some very very simple ‘methods’ to spoil your soul. They are so simple that you might think ‘Ok, why are they sharing this stuff with us? We already know…’.
But … do you really know? And even if you know, do you practice?
So choose some of the below listed actions and do them in the following days. You will see that your soul will relax and your thoughts will just be in a flow. Why is this so important?
_’ Tis the gift to be simple,
’tis the gift to be free
’tis the gift to come down where we ought to be.
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
’twill be in the valley of love and delight. […]
(“Simple Gifts” by Elder Joseph Brackett, 1848)
And here we go… just think about how your inner world relates to the outer and which sense is dominating in your mental processing…
If it is the visual sense visit an exhibition in your town and be just surprised about the imagination and the rich colour palette the painter is using; watch an auspicious movie and try to imagine yourself in it, be one of the characters; go for a walk in sacred places(forest, mountains,beach) and focus on the beautiful landscape…
If it is the auditory sense prepare yourself a nice cup of tea, light a candle, calm down on your couch and listen to various music, focus on the sound and try also to use your visual sense, imagining pictures on your mental screen; also listen to the sound of nature, the wind blowing, the birds singing, the rain falling; than focus on silence and listen to your inner-self…
If it is the kinesthetic sense paint a picture without thinking about the result – you don’t have to be Picasso; start to have a diary and write down even ordinary incidents – sometimes they look ordinary, but they are not : ) ; do handicraft work – why are we buying gifts for our beloved ones instead of making them, isn’t it more expressive?…
Why don’t you prepare a nice dinner for your friends/family today? Just imagine a rich table with all colours of the rainbow. Do you hear the laughter and the soft music in the background? Do you see children playing around?
By the way, observing children is fantastic…they are really focusing on simple gifts!
Soon we will be ready to continue with the next part in the book Reality of Being, “The life force”.
Enjoy your day!
