Loyal soil

“Sameyh to Earth”, keep your feet on the ground it will always be there for you. Being grounded means being one with the earth. A dear friend once taught me how to do walking meditation and since then I consider the soil as part of my soul, my being. I suppose we’re all one in some way or the other, all interconnected. The beauty of this is that we all walk on the same soil treading our own path with our own individual intentions, yet the soil is one. Most of us are on autopilot quickly walking from one step to the next, but what about the one step that can change it all? The one step where you’re actually aware that you’re walking, for me this is new and it feels good. But I often get caught up with running about on autopilot zipping through each step of the day. I intend and demand to fully live my life and be present for each moment possible. I suppose the beginning of that is each step in soil and how I sacrifice the the thought of next moment for the present one. Soil is something to use and muse on.

How vision can be a gift?

Isn’t great when you attempt to become aware or mindful even for a moment? Today my heart was delighted as I saw the reflection of my eyelashes sparkle against a recessed light as my eyes slowly opened. My eyelids gently uncovered the two gems I was blessed with. Just a simple moment of awareness made me grateful, realizing what I had been given. The gifts of time, awareness and eyesight. I rubbed my bare feet together creating a plushy patch of energy that gave comfort not only to my body but to my heart and soul. I strive to make more moments like this so that the divine heart, mind and body can be assuaged daily, as if I were re-cleansing myself over and over with each new breath, movement, reaction or thought.
