There are times in my life where I believe I need to have more of certain things to feel happy or to be just simply myself. I find myself rushing towards a certain idea or outcome and simply get caught in the belief of myself as time bound, rather than just allowing restfulness and being complete as I am in this moment.
This is central to my interest in the mandala. The center point is a reminder that being home within is not achieved through striving or being a certain way, it is just simply having seen through many ideas of not being complete by allowing simplicity of this very moment. And finding restfulness. I find contentment in not leaving myself and allowing myself to be open and in a less definable way. This formless is the happiness in the moment. I can be open to anything that arises, as a potential that unfolds.
And here we are in this moment, isn’t it wonderful that there is so much wonderful possibility. How many times we disregard how much we are receiving in this moment. And in the end what we are has such infinite possibility that every moment is really a way to say hello to everything we are being offered. And such grace and opportunity to have not resistance but a full and open embrace that fully says yes to the here and now.
