Back on the Path
Remember way back in January, when we were all setting intentions for the New Year? Mine was simply a word - MINDFUL. Over the past several weeks, I have veered off the path a bit, forgetting to be mindful in my daily life.
This is easy to do, with all the challenges and stresses that creep into our lives, growing wild like weeds over and into what should be a clear path.
And then clarity returns, in a beam of sunshine, or the sweet grasp of a child's hand, and guides us back to our center. Reminding us to take the path of least resistance, to practice detachment and to honor our Buddha Nature within.
Showing us that right there, among all the weeds are the beautiful flowers of our lives. And this, my friends, is where we should set our sights.
Do you remember your New Year's resolution? Are you still on your path?
