One of the basic tenets of Buddhism is the idea of walking the middle path in our life. Life is not entirely this or that, all action and no rest, total elation without sadness. Wholehearted living calls us to find the sweet spot of harmony; the ebb and flow of the middle path.
The same is true as we think about allowing our life to unfold and take shape. A life without intention dilutes our impact; our days a whim or hope. A life without dreaming and space is an over-engineered structure too heavy and complex for freedom and flexibility to survive.
Can we find the sweet spot; both allowing and willing, creating and surrendering, leading and following, architecting & dreaming?
When you find your mind planning, strategizing, and structuring the future, remind yourself to embrace flow and grace & to be totally present in this moment. That’s where the magic lives, yes? It is right now that we create, cultivate, and celebrate. In this moment, take a deep breath and let that breath go. As we slow our breath, we slow our experience of time.
Take a moment and consider where you are living at the outer edge of your continuum; creating an imbalance. Shift towards the middle path, & sink into the sweet spot of both creating and being created.
