Now…

1I7A2647a-1-1Sometimes like many people, I feel that there is something missing. A void exists, and I am not sure how to fill it. That is how I have felt up until now.  It is said that everything that we have ever done in life, gets us to this exact point where we are at right now. Many self help books adhere to the premise that the point of power is now.  They are right, we never really have any other moment than that which is now, this moment, this precise moment; the present.

Today I have realised that I have this body that has carried me through life, this mind that is always curious and wanting to learn more in the quest for knowledge, and my spirit which is sometimes low but often elated because of one thing or another that has brightened my day. Whether that be the sound of a loved ones laughter, the Robin Redbreast alighting on the plant pot outside the door, the elderflower tree which just now is in flower, not to mention the mighty Lime Flower Tree which stands higher than the house in our minuscule back garden (which in truth is actually a small plot of dirt because of two boisterous, though loveable dogs). In these simple things there is beauty and peace. There is the wonder of life.

It is up to me how I choose to fill my vessel. I can choose to nourish or to damage that which carries me on my voyage. I get to choose how I ‘feed’ myself.

Let the journey recommence. Bon voyage!

Today is the day…

Butterflies symbolise change and transformation!  Time to come out of the darkness of the  cocoon and emerge free as a Butterfly

Time for change…

1I7A7113a-1-1

One day in time, just when the time seems right to do so, the stubby little Caterpillar decides that he/she will stop eating, for that is what Caterpillars do for most of the time. A Caterpillar is, after all just a Caterpillar, and Caterpillars will repeatedly do what Caterpillars do. Said Caterpillar then finds some branch, some twig maybe or just somewhere where it can hang out, hopefully undisturbed by too much trauma, and hang upside down for a bit. In this upside down world it spins itself a cocoon and remains in the dark place for however long it takes. A wonderful, beautiful thing begins to happen in the darkness. A beautiful transformation is taking place. The old body parts of the Caterpillar are undergoing the miracle of metamorphosis to change into the beautiful parts that become the Butterfly that will at just the right time emerge and soar upwards.

We can learn so much from nature! Trust the process!
