Be

A Little Blue and Slightly Off Center

For the last few years I have noticed words showing up in my life to give me direction.  Last year it was the word “rest.”  The need for rest kept showing up over and over as I struggled to heed them rather than push through to the point of complete exhaustion.

This year the word that keeps showing up over and over is “be” — as opposed to “do.”  Brought up to believe we change the world by doing I am now learning that we really change the world by being.

So join me this month as we explore this little word, so packed full of meaning —

BE.

Be Still

Have you noticed how busy everyone seems to be?  So caught up in striving for success and perfection many “just don’t have time” to prepare or eat a healthy meal, talk to their children or sometimes even sleep.

This can even extend to our spiritual lives.  We get so caught up looking for God we forget the divine is within us — as close as the air we breathe.  All we have to do is connect.

I believe all this striving and running after success, perfection and even God is the reason for the spiritual sickness we see in this world.  When was the last time you took a minute to take a deep breath, sit in stillness, and just be?  This is important.  This is when we hear from Spirit.  It is also why our dreams are so important.  Sometimes our sleep is the only time Spirit can reach us.

I know we live in a world where taking time to be still is considered a weakness.  People who do this may even be called “lazy.”  But taking time to rest our body, mind, and spirit and listen for guidance from Spirit is actually where we find our true strength.

I will leave you with this reminder from the Jewish/Christian Holy Bible.
