In the midst of reflecting on the year that has gone by and anxious, curious planning for the year turning anew, here’s a wish.
A wish for a gift.
A gift of stillness.
Stillness of mind.
So it is no longer a burning fire of desires but a steady inward glow, of a pure spiritual flame, protected well by the universe which lit itself in the first place.
Just for you.
As you discover this steady inward glow
The usual conflicts of life,
all the trials and tribulations,
successes or failures,
cravings or aversions,
pleasures or pains,
nothing affect you much,
you either witness with indifference or participate fullest, as a choice.
A strong realisation: This too shall pass.
The steady inward glow suddenly makes visible the space you have within yourself: clean and clear.
And you find yourself bestowed with enormous strength.
To explore, learn and love. To fulfil your true potential; with compassion, towards yourself and all others.
A chance to truly become an instrument of God as you were meant to be.
God as your faith be or simply universe. Who knows.
Possibilities are infinite but the journey is unique,
for each one of us.
Paths are many but they all begin with a single act,
first with some effort and then without,
stillness of mind.
So my friends, in the midst of reflecting on the year that has gone by
and anxious, curious planning for the year turning anew, here’s a wish.
A wish for a gift. A gift of stillness. Stillness of mind.
To discover your steady flame, your true potential.
And hey, it’s only a wish for a gift, no wrapping paper.
Keep it if you like or ignore if you don’t.
Happy New Year!
