we tend to inundate ourselves with shoulds, have-tos, need-tos – amongst all the other worries and concerns of living. we attach a lot of our creative energy to tasks, and lists, and anxieties about future things, piled on top of whatever may still linger from what has passed.

heavy.

clear the mechanism, from time to time… lift the stylus off the spinning record, as it were. empty the mind and heart of all the noise, and relax the well-travelled axons to give the neurons a chance at something… different. solutions and inspirations are fostered in the malleable, intangible spaces of difference.

we settle into routines, some of which can be quite damaging, unhealthy and stagnating. be it mental, physical, or spiritual, we get accustomed to them regardless, and life will continue unabated with, or without, our conscious involvement. our lives and experiences matter, and our presence is integral to a deeper fulfilment.

thus, our task would be to glean and soak up everything we can from wherever, whenever, however and whoever we are, presently. we are where we are. whether it’s a struggle, or it’s easy, or joyous and blissful, or boring, or stressful, or utterly futile and hopeless, we are there.

there is magic in awareness. be you, truly, in every moment.
