Imagine a glass of muddy water and what happens if you continue to shake it up. Then what happens if you allow it to be in stillness. This muddy glass of water is like our mind agitation. Always filled with millions of thoughts continually crashing on the shores of our everyday life and distracting us from our purpose.
Like all of you I sometimes find my mind constantly reaching for something to figure out, worry about, future what ifs…and it goes on. Though when relaxing into simply inhabiting the place of being in the moment, and letting go of anything that has to “be done”, the mind rests into a stillness and the glass of water becomes clear.
What if we could rest in this clear place in our everyday life? What if all it took was a deep trust that we would be taken care of if we simply let go and “rested in natural great peace”? How ease filled life would be. Yet this often feels so far from our reach in the midst of a busy day with the demands and stimulation that comes at us from what seems like every direction.
I wonder if it is possible to take each of these demands or responsibilities into the understanding and embodiment that each request of our time whether in relationship, business, child rearing, or profession comes from an opportunity “for” us versus doing something “to” us. How might this change the way in which we live our lives?
It is from this place of “natural great peace” that the water clears and we are able to rest in the source of who we are. What greater place to inhabit for a richness of life that has us sitting down to the banquet of life.
Take a few minutes and rest within the images and words of the poem “Rest In Natural Great Peace”. Though there are Buddhist images and powerful chanting that accompany this video it is really non-secular in nature. It invites all of us to come home to the core of our being….Natural Wealth indeed!
