Do you ever feel like your mind is a Circus?
Sometimes, it feels as though my mind has become a circus. Random tunes occasionally play in my head all day long, as though the Universe wants to get a message to me with fun lyrics. "Then I saw her face! Now I'm a Believer! Not a trace! Of doubt in my mind!" "Whisper words of wisdom -- Let It Be...." "I'm pickin' up good vibrations. She's givin' me excitations. Good ... bop em bop...mmmm... good vibrations..."
Rather than ignoring the tunes, I find that when I stop and listen, I can meditate on the meaning behind the lyrics. Sometimes it is just nonsense. (That is why I call it "circus mind.") Other times, the lyrics speak to something specific I am going through at the moment and offer me wisdom I had been pointedly avoiding.
Do you ever do that? Do you ignore that still small voice that encourages you to let go of an old resentment that continually pops up to bug you or that asks you to look at some deep-seated anger?
We all do it, no doubt about it. So this is our challenge, mine and yours: Start listening. Breathe. Take steps in the direction of your dreams. We are all on this path together.
Life often seems like a circus. When things are crazy, be sure to make time for yourself. Meditate. Pray. Go within and love yourself.
