Cocooning

Happy March! It looks like Spring may actually show up one of these days.

After my big cleaning frenzy in February I spent a few days cocooning. I gave in to my fatigue and snoozed the days away.

All my readings have various exercises to get in touch with your inner self and that’s an emotional process. When you take time to figure out what it is you want to do with your life, the answer can be overwhelming. In the past I would wish for certain circumstances to arise, but now that they are here, acting on them takes a whole new form of courage.

Am I an artist, a writer, a business woman? What does my future of blissful living look like? How will that ‘contribute to society’? Does it have to? Or will following my heart naturally provide some cosmic ‘contribution’?

I’m learning that my sense of ‘productivity’ in the corporate world is not applicable to this new life I lead. Even on my ‘lazy’ days, there was an evolution of thought processes and a shift in perception, and that too, can be regarded as ‘productive’.

So for now no grand plans have unveiled themselves, but each moment has an intensity, and purpose, of its own.

“Each moment of our lives, each moment that is given to us to live, we have to live very deeply. …

Each moment is a chance for us to make peace with the world, to make peace possible for the world.

The world needs our happiness.”

~ Thích Nhất Hạnh (as quoted in Expect a Miracle)

May your day be filled with blissful moments.
