The stillness after meditation.
When I am alone
When I am at home in my own skin. Being.
Creating with my hands, specifically working with wood and leather. Carving, shaping, creating.
I have been struggling greatly lately and I am still learning where to find joy in between the moments of sadness. Today I had a call with a wonderful, upbeat, joyful person and it reminded me that there are still rays of light in the world and I need to make the time to go out into the world and FIND THEM. So that I can relight my own joyful heart and spread happiness into the world.
I hope you can find some moments of joy today, Jennifer. 🌸
I can only reply to it from the perspective of this moment being, which even is a special one today. Last night, my dear friend with whom I currently stay suffered an acute life threatening condition and there must have been a many of protecting angels flying around her so that she is still with us now, recovering. It is in such moments that I humbly thank God for his Grace of alowing the right place, people and right time to come together, catalyzing the good interactions without delay. No space left today.. May be the word content does not really mirror the state, but to know I have contributed and have done what was needed to the best of my ability, too, makes me feel content, which is a part of the inner peace when blessings have been granted, like today. Deeply and humbly grateful. Hope that tonight, inner peace and a relaxed, open mind may return after today´s intense need for focussing. Blessings be with you all, my dear friends.
I feel most content when I know that I am growing in wisdom and making progressive in becoming a kinder, wiser human being.
When i am surrounded by children i feel content, their truthfulness and innocence warms my heart
I feel most content when I am walking outside surrounded by Redwood Trees. These “giants” bless me with pure joy. I am honored & blessed by their magnificence.
I also feel content after I meditate & have my quiet prayer time with Source. 🙏🎄🙏
Being in my home, at my art table, creating beautiful pieces of art.
When I’m hiking or camping in nature. When I’m cooking food.
Hanging with my family – when everyone is sharing and no one is fighting.
Hanging in my office at the end of the day
When one of the grandkids spontaneously comes up for a hug or backs up to sit in my lap to read a book. When I can eat dinner with my husband or ride in the car and just sit comfortably in the silence of being together.
The spaces between moments come to mind – like when I read the question and the underlying peace rose up – moments when I let go of whatever is on top of the contentment, blanketing it, as it were.
After intense outdoor cardio no wonder I have been how I have without any
Also daily meditation and prayer which I fell from lately any wonder I fall to pieces that’s alright I have the puzzle instructions now
