Dear Crew and friends,
In the past year I have been listening to my heart more than I ever have since I can remember. The message it has given me so far is this: Rhythm and Pace. Slow Down. The Moon was just Full yesterday, the seasons are changing towards Spring in the North, Nature constantly teaches us that there is rhythm and pace to the day, week, month, years and cycles of life and eras of the planet. If we gaze at a star visible to our naked eye how can we not sense the eternal. It is reaching us so many lightyears after its own existence. The stars we cannot see without stellar equipment are so much further back in light year time, a time beyond our knowing.
Time is only useful if it gives us a sense of freedom. My old idea of the day and week and how I lived it was starting to feel unaligned with myself, and by slowing down my rhythms and paces, I actually discovered a greater sense of freedom of time. Trusting intuition is a living ever-inspiring art. Certainly I am not finding it easy to accept that I have today a change of rhythm and pace in my life calling me to a deeper trust and faith in the ancient wisdoms that I study, teach and live by. Certainly it is an exciting adventure and it has already proven to me that by slowing down I am doing more. Such a funny paradox.
It got me reflecting on the rhythm and pace in which many of our work lives run. Many of us live with a time constriction that we either imposed upon ourselves or was imposed on us by our circumstances. What if we did not retire at 65? What if we ''retired'' at 30? What if we study at any age, work or not work at any age? I wonder what would happen if I saw each day as the first of eternity? If life is not limited by an idea of time then perhaps the pace and rhythm we are maintaining towards a defined timeline can change and we can look upon what rhythm and pace and activities best serves us and others RIGHT NOW where we are in life. Just this morning I read in a script: the only place where time is eternal is in the now. How relaxing that is to me.
What rhythm and pace relaxes you? What rhythm and pace makes you creative, joyful, excited? What rhythm and pace expands your sense of being alive? There are so many ways to live!
My own change of pace has inspired me to share with you many of the tools I use often to keep myself in harmony with the rhythm and pace that suits me. The Day of Wonder is a day retreat where we dive into some useful tools but most of all a useful approach on how to create change in any area of your life in a way that suits your rhythm and pace. Welcome to sign up, it is held soon on April 14th. Below also a link to a selection of my small but growing art work - a big part of creativity that is helping me set a new pace and rhythm in life. I look forward to hearing from you.
