This is a time to be grateful for the little things, and to allow the space for those things which nurture and nourish the Soul.
to start recognizing how our own programming and patterns may be working against us.)
The guidance on this is…
Be generous with yourself in your thoughts towards yourself and your actions,
especially those around the “accomplishments” of the moment.
Right now, much healing and momentum will come from acknowledging that the “little things” which happen throughout the day are just as important as the big accomplishments – and often more “powerful”.
With that, we are also guided to pay attention to how we rate each moment, and how we may be valuing “quantity over quality.”
What we are NOT being asked to do
(What we are being steered away from)
is to count how many “little things” we complete in comparison to a bigger picture,
or, for instance, if we complete a list of things for the day…
or, I hear “more work than play.”
As this tends to put us in a place of judging each moment, our accomplishments and the day itself.
(Was this a good day or a wasted day? What are the deciding factors?)
A task is not more or less worthy of feeling good about based on its positioning in a list,
whether or not the entire list was completed.
Just as the days of our lives should not be deemed as “worthy” based on tasks accomplished
(or whether we only allowed ourselves to engage only with “the Light”. As being present with the very real “darkness” within our self is important for soul growth and understanding, while aiding with balance and gratitude.)
In the greater perspective, a task on a list is no more important that those things which fall in between.
“Work” is not necessarily more important than “leisure”.
For instance, mowing the lawn does not have more value than taking a walk or daydreaming.
Working through lunch or eating while you work does not have more value than giving the time and space to sit and eat and relax into mealtimes.
Each moment of each day is valuable.
If we feel “bad” about how past moments have unfolded, we need only to become present within this moment.
as THIS MOMENT holds the gift of starting over.
We have each been given this day, and all its moments. Along with limitless ways to fill that space.
Yes balance is what we strive for – knowing that some days we do more work and some days we do more play.
(Some days we stand more in our Light and some we confront our own darkness.)
Fulfill your “tasks”
Do your “work”
but remember that to eat, to rest, to play, to daydream…
these too are of great value, and in fact, of greatest value to the Soul.
Becoming more consciously connected to this idea of valuing time spent and what it means to be accomplished
Will be beneficial as we move towards the VERY POWERFUL New Moon with Solar Eclipse on 8/23 and through to Jan 2018.
(Which I see impacting the US and the UK in big ways, as well as, parts of South America. Venezuela? Peru? Brasil? …bits still coming in)
