In the midst of the craziness, we lose ourselves. We get caught up in the urban life and the shine of everything new that we forget who we are, we forget what we are. We forget our origins: where we started and what we’re doing in this life and once we forget our origins we no longer know where we’re going.
Seriously, who cares what designer bag you hold and what jewels you wear.
Everything builds up on top of ourselves, hiding our true soul away from the mirror. When you look in the mirror, is it you who looks back? Is that the same person you remember? Is this who you wanted to become?
Remove the layers hiding your true identity and focus on your core. understand that the craziness is entering from every sense in you and take it away. Remove the excess baggage that hunches your back and release your tension. Savor your life and utilize your senses the way they were meant to be used.
Taste. Go back to basics and taste the givings from mother earth. Look at the colors, reach a point where you can differentiate the shades of the sky and the subtle greenness of the trees. Listen to “white noise” you so readily purchase off stores and find its source from around you. Listen to the drops of the water, the laughter of children, and the buzzing of the bees. Touch everything with the tips of your fingers, sense the difference in texture and imaging yourself blind. Speak no more, reduce your speech to utter silence and balance your words on your tongue before addressing anyone. And finally, be here. Focus your mind into being where you are and breathe. Breathe out the clutter, breathe the mess, and breathe out the numerous ridiculous choices you have to make and just be.
Reset your senses back to basics, let your soul dominate your body.
