“Rather than be your thoughts and emotions, be the awareness behind them.”
~ Eckhart Tolle
Spring is a time for reorganizing, cleaning, pitching things out, and rethinking many directions in our lives. It can also be a time of emotional cleaning and balance. As Oprah very eloquently said recently on one of her recordings with Deepak Chopra:
“Emotional balance – often we become attached to the habit of negative feelings – I know I did and still do. The same negative tapes played over and over. Feelings can take hold of us if we allow them to. We bury them, they get rooted deep within us, and then they begin to control us – and, it’s really easy to get stuck. I’ve been there. I know. It’s easy to lose your emotional balance by playing the same negative tapes. But you have the power to turn the message around. In reality, feelings come and go – feelings change, that’s what they’re supposed to do. By being STILL, you can create space for the natural flow of emotions both positive and negative and release yourself from the Burden of heaviness. Find your STILL SPACE. Let yourself BE STILL. And, from that center place all feelings can flow to the surface. They move through you rather than hold you and weigh you down. Our truest present moment is always filled with a sense of love and hopefulness. As your feelings flow, you become lighter. Heaviness – the weight – disappears and anything seems possible.”
So, this month let’s work on creating that STILL SPACE. Meditate. Walk outside. Practice gratitude and quiet contemplation. Be Still for just a moment in your daily life.
