In a world of uncertainty and nebulousness, one thing is abundantly clear: we are all living in tumultuous and turbulent times. Energetically, physically, emotionally, spiritually, politically and morally, the ground is shifting from beneath our feet and it’s bewildering, confusing and exhausting...
How many of us are conscious and fully ‘present’ in this moment? So many of us try to be but it is often the case that we find ourselves in the present moment by default as we are anchored to the past and locked onto chasing the horizons of the future; we are in the present moment as we are trapped between what went before and what may or may not lie ahead.
We can become tied up in knots trying to work out how to find bliss in life, but this kind of misses the point, for the more we look, the farther away from bliss we get, for bliss is not something to seek out and ‘get’; it is a state of being.
As we continue to excavate and dig deeply within, it seems that many of us have found ourselves in unfamiliar territory as we have opened up our minds, bodies and souls to the Truth of the closets, the nooks and the crannies within.
There can be no denying the intensity and vigour of the wave upon wave of shift lapping the shores of our souls at the present time. Whilst there are times when we can feel lost in the currents, there are other times of crystal clear clarity and vision which inspire us to have faith and to keep on, keeping on.
Truth, yes, that old chestnut again! We seem to be on a mission at the current time, a mission towards Truth, meaning, purpose, mindfulness and conscious living. There is a power behind this, driving us forwards to make changes to our lives on every level of our Being. This is hard work, it is frightening and it is exciting but it feels necessary.
Twenty-first century life is frenetic, chaotic and full of hustle and bustle. It can be so hard to find truly ‘quiet moments’ without the mobile (cell) phone buzzing, an email pinging into the inbox, things to buy, people to meet, work to do, life to live and jobs to complete!
