SIMPLY BE

“Only if we are still enough inside and the noise of thinking subsides can we become aware that there is a hidden harmony here, a sacredness, a higher order in which everything has its perfect place and could not be other than what it is and the way it is.”  Elkhart Tolle

We try so hard to order the world, to control, manipulate and scrub and push and prod things into what we perceive as orderly and organized.  It gives us a sense of harmony and balance when we look about our surroundings and see everything in its place.  The house is clean, the garage is organized, the lawn is mowed, the garbage is taken away.  And then we breathe a sigh of relief, but only for a short time because, as is the way of this world, it never stays orderly and organized and clean. And before long, like mice in a maze, we are running around doing the same things all over again.  Our ego minds are never orderly, forever thinking thoughts of this and that, most of which, if we took the time to stop and listen, we would discover are pretty much nonsense.  Repetitious nonsense. Over and over the same mindless thoughts flow through our brains.  We’re like a puppet without a master.  Have you ever wondered, “Where did that thought come from?” 

It’s often difficult to listen in this noisy world, but listening and quietly looking is the only way to ever find order and peace.  Only in the stillness within us can we find what we are searching for so frantically. And as we go within to find order, only then do we have stress-free control over every aspect of our lives.     

Envision yourself resting against a tree and let that tree be God, strong, trustworthy and able to take your full weight as though it were nothing.  Look up and see the branches of the tree above you and the deep green of its foliage protecting you and keeping you safe from the baking sun and the drenching rain.  And as you rest against Him think no thoughts, but simply let silence enfold you like a comforting white blanket.  Feel the relief, the peace, and the joy of knowing that you have no responsibility but to simply allow your life to unfold without worry or concern.  And as it unfolds, simply look at it quietly without attachment or emotion or judgment of any kind. Watch as your Angels busy themselves around you taking care of everything, now and then giving you gentle direction so you know what to do and say in each instance of your experience here.  Hear only laughter today.  See only miracles today.  Bask in the wonder of your own beauty today.  Be amazed at the beauty in everyone you encounter.  And know this is your real life.  This is the true you.  And it requires nothing from you, but to simply be.  Herein will you find true, unchanging, ceaseless and eternal order.

 May you walk in peace today knowing you are blessed and a blessing in the world.
