I was opening the curtains in the bedroom this morning, and caught a glimpse of the rim of sunlight just washing the tips of the mountain range to the east. I stopped. I stood there, relishing in the change of colours on the horizon; inky blue, to deep cobalt blue, to purple,; while the sky rimming the mountains was deep coral, the peach, then the warm butter rich colour of the sun just over the horizon. I knew it was coming —- in just a moment —– THERE ! The rays of the sun, flooding over the top of the mountains, growing by the second, but so quietly, – like a cat stalking a mouse. You never see the actual movement, but when you blink, or look away, the cat is in a different place, – a different position.
I stood there, watching the effect of the sun on the valley below. Magic.
I spent, maybe 10 minutes doing this mindfully. My mind empty of the tasks ahead today, I stayed focussed on the beauty of nature opening to the day around me. It’s important to my state of being in this world to take 10 minutes when they are handed to me, – because it is an unseen force giving me the moment’s gift. You’ve heard it before. “Stop and smell the roses”. Listen to that inner voice, whether you call it God, or the universe, or the angels, put whatever title on it that speaks to you.
I know the universe has great plans for me, just as I knew the sun was going to appear. I may not know the exact moment, but I know abundance is mine, waiting for me to be ready for it.
