Life is More Than ___________

Balance

Sometimes we get so wrapped up in one aspect of life it becomes our entire life.  We may stay stuck in that way of living until we get a wake up call that tells us the delicate balance of life has been disrupted.  That wake up call may come as a gentle nudge or a big kick in the pants.  For me it still too often comes as a big kick after gentle nudges have been ignored.

Think about things that take over your life and fill in the blank.  Repeat the statement until you believe it.  Then take it a step beyond and think of one thing that is the “more” you might be missing.

What is your life more than…?

Drumroll please…

Organize your own at home spiritual retreat.

*  Turn off your phone and take off your watch.

*  Choose books, CD’s and videos to study during your retreat or study the sacred texts of your tradition.

*  Allow plenty of time for rest, reflection, meditation and journaling.

*  Spending time outside in a park or on a nature trail is also a good while on retreat.

You don’t really need all the trappings of an expensive spiritual retreat or conference.  Spirit speaks when and where we listen.
