I’m hunkered down in my meditation room tonight….the wind gave me a chill today that I’m still trying to shake. So, my feet are resting near the quiet heater, the candles are burning, and my frankincense and myrrh incense works diligently to carry my worries into the heavens.
As I sit in the quiet, I realize that I’m expending too much energy wanting for the people that I love. Wanting peace, happiness, wellness, success….for them. Too much wanting for others drains my strength. Once again I find myself searching for balance. Perhaps its like a tightrope walker on a high wire, who finds perfect balance….and with each step, must regain that balance before moving forward. It’s a natural part of his process, just as it is a natural part of our journey.
The page I read in Guidebook for the Saints and Angels helps me find balance, and peace, and to remember that all is well. “Some of the valuable qualities that you’re acquiring include strength, patience, forgiveness, and perseverance……..Once you extract the blessing within the pattern, it won’t need to repeat itself anymore.” I guess with each lesson learned, we stand a bit more steady on that high wire.
All is well, and now my feet are warm. I think I’ll have a cup of hot tea and a good night’s sleep.
