365 Pause Practices – Day 65
Shake The Dust From Your Feet
Dust and Trust
There comes a time to let go of wanting situations and people to be
something other than they are. There comes a time for me to open
to a renewing of my mind.
I find peace when I “Step Aside” and receive the LOVE that is ready
when I am willing to receive it. For this to happen I need to be
willing to deepen my focus on inner peace, to stop directing the
scene, watching, and performing the same unhelpful behaviors –
mine and others. I can’t change another, but I can Pause, Step
Aside, Shake the Dust from My Feet, and Trust LOVE, loves me; in
this practice, I can begin to experience a renewing of my mind.
Have I hired myself as the Director of the scenes?
Sometimes I observe myself auditioning LOVE
but casting the ego. LOVE may get a callback!
Easier Said Than Done
I am not saying this is easy, yet it’s easier than repeating
the same old, same old that only steals my PEACE and
robs me of my JOY. I’ll share a Pause Practice:
Let Breath Come Into My Awareness
Notice my feelings
Is this scene a repetitive scenario?
Is it helpful or unhelpful?
Am I expecting a different outcome while clinging to my same
ways of thinking, saying, and doing?
Shake the dust from my feet. Loosen my grip to cease clinging.
Let LOVE show me
Let the Breath of Wisdom breathe in me, with me, and
LOVE will lead the way.
I Trust LOVE to direct my path into Peace
for only Peace will renew my mind.
