Looking for space in our life, fills up the space in our life. It exhausts us and makes us feel more and more frantic, and takes us further from help. Let the spaciousness of life find us. It is always here, which is precisely where we are.
~~~From The Shimmering World by Steven Harrison
These words give me pause for reflection each time I read them. They are an inspiring guide to living life. When we are confused or feel lost, then sit down and relax. Find your Middle Ground. Knowing that help is here in the space we are already in…..
Today session, we are working on a mental exercise – Looking For Space Within
This mental exercise is to helps train the mind to become aware of the space we are already in rather than the object that fill it or making us look outside of us.
When you look in any direction, try to make yourself aware of the spaces between the objects, rather than the objects themselves, as though what you were seeing was a picture on paper and you were able to use scissors to cut out the objects themselves, leaving only spaces between them. This exercise can expand the perceptions and help you to escape from preoccupations with the material world.
As you slowly open your eyes, imagine the sunrise coming out of your eyes and shining light on to a new day.
See all of you in our next session.
With Love & Light,
