So I am at the water for the first time in a very long time!!! I am purposefully attempting to improve my ability to empty my mind of all thoughts and simply be!!! I impress myself because I am beginning to feel one with the earth as I sit in my best yoga position-straight back, legs crossed hands on my knees, thumbs to index fingers – it’s all working so well as I feel the sand on my bottom and place each thought onto an imaginary cloud and visualize it floating away!!! List of things to do – place it on the cloud “that was a thought” how can I improve my work situation “that was a thought” place it on a cloud and watch it float on “to be more productive” that was a thought …the thoughts continue to pour as I place them on clouds and see them gently float away…. It’s starting to work – I feel the breeze touch my face, I smell the fresh air, I barely hear the boats and the birds chirping – Oh my goodness it’s working – So I lay my body and attempt my absolute best relaxation pose!!! I feel myself becoming more and more present – I begin to get into that space where emptiness takes over – wow this is a first – I feel completely one with the earth and as quickly as I notice it – it vanishes away!!!
I sit up quickly and notice a boat coming straight at me!!! The minute I pop up it’s engine stops roaring and changes direction!!! As it speeds away two gentleman in the back are waving while one yells out “We thought you were dead!!!”
Wow!!! The feeling of complete joy – that I not only felt one with the earth – I appeared to have left myself to others around me!!! And the kindness in their hearts to come to see that I was ok was so wonderful to experience!!! Life is so incredibly sweet!!! All we need to do is look around us and more and more evidence that we do belong!!! That the world is here to support us if we only allow it!!! Bless the two kind people on the boat for reminding me what it’s like to be in my Grace On You space!!!
