And after 14 months, I’m finally back.
The past year has been a bit of a rollercoaster at Casa de Rant. I’m not going to go into details at this time, but I will in future posts.
There are 2 things that have kept me sane during this ride:
- The undeniable knowledge that we are not in control, and that’s okay, and it’s really a good thing.
Meditation – This can also be prayer, or whatever system you use to calm your mind. We all need to take some time each day to quiet our minds. Get re-centered.
Our minds get so easily caught up in the detractions of everyday life.
I think we can all agree, it’s a little crazy out there right now.
We need a moment to get our heads straight. To prioritize what is truly important. To focus on love and compassion. For ourselves and everyone around us.
Control (or lack thereof) – There is something so much larger that us and our egos. We cannot even began to imagine the enormity of this presence. Some call this God, Allah, Krishna, and so many other titles. I prefer “The Universe.”
Something that big obviously has a whole lot of power and insight, way beyond our limited scope of knowledge.
And I have learned to trust that.
When I look back on my life, all of the twist and turns, I can see how true that is.
I often say “Man plans, God laughs.”
I realize the truth in that adage more and more as time passes.
So as I begin to get my writing chops back up to speed, my focus, for now, has changed to spiritual growth.
I have no desire to tell others how to live their lives (which is very difficult for me and my well developed ego). I only want to share what I have been learning.
Take what works for you. That’s why I’m putting it our there.
More posts to follow… I just wanted to take a moment to say hi, and send out some much needed love.
