INTERMISSION™: Wednesday Wisdom - Fun & Stoic Games

INTERMISSION™: Wednesday Wisdom - Fun & Stoic Games

Today's #WednesdayWisdom nugget is fun and games which seems to be a theme this week.
(Check out my oracle card theme reading post from Monday) 😁

I talked a bit about Joe Rogan who I wouldn't equate with Stoicism but apparently he's all about it. Who knew? 🤷‍♂️
And he is quoted as saying, "If you ever start taking things too seriously, just remember that we are talking monkeys on an organic spaceship flying through the universe." Something about that struck me as funny yet profound. And reminded me that we often take life so seriously when it's meant to be fun. 💃 Perhaps if we thought of life as a game or a dance and approached each person and situation as a partner with whom we might learn a new step or refine one we already know, it would feel easier, lighter and more fun.

I mentioned quite a few quotes in the video and won't bore you with all of them here but do want to leave you with the gist and overarching theme... Dont wait to demand the best for yourself.
A bit of struggle is part of the process but it's how you perceive it that makes the biggest difference on how it impacts you overall.

And one final thought from Voltaire...
"Uncertainty is an uncomfortable position. But certainty is an absurd one." So freaking true.

Remember we learn from one another so please share this wisdom with those who may need it today. Xo

INTERMISSION™: The Beauty & Magic of a Single Flower

INTERMISSION™: The Beauty & Magic of a Single Flower

 I posted a picture this morning of a single flower.
A flower that sits on a table in my home.
It was a gift from someone special so it holds even more meaning.

This single flower holds the magic and majesty of nature.🏵️ If you think about it, what did it take for that flower to grow?
Who planted the seed?
Who fed and watered it?
How many hours of sunlight were required for it to sprout, to grow, to bloom? 🌱
How many hands touched it before it made its way to me?

It's pretty profound to think of all the flowers that grow and do their thing without worry or anxiety or fear they're doing something wrong.

They know to grow and bloom.

We have the same ability. To surrender into who we're meant to be.
As Eckhart Tolle says in his book The Power of Now, "to relinquish inner resistance to what is."
And in The New Earth, to "appreciate something simple - a sight, a sound, a touch - when you see beauty, when you feel loving kindness toward another, sense the inner spaciousness that is the source and the background to that experience." then being is bliss.

Doesn't that feel easier?
Isn't that simpler?
We make it harder than it needs to be.

Look at a flower and take in its beauty, complexity and magic while feeling how easy it is to be exactly what you're meant to be when you surrender to what it, to who you are and allow life to unfold as it's meant to be.
(if even for a few minutes a day 😊)! Let me know what you think about the nature of flowers... We learn from one another. Xo
