Beloved ones; with life being so hectic, it is so very rare that you take time to enter into stillness. Many of you view making time for meditation, rumination, and even time for the self, as a hindrance.
If you continue to push on, and not take time to enter into stillness, you actually hinder your ability to process information and take action. This in turn, creates even further frustration and stress.
If you experience frustration, or you feel there is no light at the end of the tunnel, then please see this as the universe telling you to STOP. There is a place, a beautiful tranquil place, where you can receive healing; and this beautiful place offers you the opportunity to integrate information, in a simple way, so clarity is gained. What is this place? It is your inner garden.
The outside garden in the physical world contains weeds, dead leaves; and these need to be cleared, so that a resemblance of order can be seen and appreciated. Your mind contains weeds, dead leaves; and if you don’t take time to tend your inner garden, then your ability to process information and emotions becomes very tangled and overgrown. Make a point of not over-loading your brain. Remember to continually return to tend and care for your inner garden.
There is a time for activity and a time for stillness. Activity that is prolonged creates frustration and forced energies. Stillness creates time for planning, preparation, and gives you the opportunity to create a reserve of energy for the tasks ahead.
Today, take time to prune you inner garden. Allow yourself time to release the stress and strain of human living conditions. Be it prayer, meditation or simply taking time to breathe, if you make time for you, you will be in a much better position to serve the world.
