sometimes in dreams

p1000360

To achieve a quiet heart, so that we can live in greater harmony with the world around us, takes an effort.  In life, when we are balanced, grounded, we are capable of better decisions, and more effective results to our actions.

If we are active, when we should be at rest, then when it is time to act, we are often ill prepared.  We can miss opportunities that had we been rested and ready, would have been easy to deal with.

For the last many days I have been living with a sinus infection.  Ok it is not the end of the world, however, when the symptoms gang up on me, I really do find myself leaning towards,a complaining mind. (that is not the right way/direction to go)

Like a hamster in a cage, running, running on my wheel, running and getting nowhere.  After chasing around looking for a clinic that was open today, I finally gave up and came home.  I will take the time to reflect on just why this physical annoyance is giving me grief.

It is said, that the “superior” person, first achieves quiet heart, and then acts.   Hmmmmp I have some serious winding down to do, 1st step, when my body says rest, I need to listen.

    Great picture. Meaningful words. Well done.

  2. Hope you’re feeling better soon.

  3. This is a lesson I am learning ~ to listen to my body and to rest when it asks me to, otherwise I become ineffectual and frustrated. I like these PL Precepts and the photo is so calming. I hope you feel better soon! 🙂

  4. I hope you feel better – yes, you need to listen to your body when it gets sick…very wise for you to get that. Most people, including myself, often don’t and it just gets worse until you do listen. Prayers of healing to you!

  5. Nice picture. Feel better soon!
