The Secret of Stopping by Karin Taylor
You and I, we are formed from the same matter as the stars above, perhaps that is why, when we look at the stars, in that mysterious night sky, we feel some connection and a sense of wonder. All too often, we deny ourselves wonderment, pleasure and experience because we are so busy with nuts and bolts, we cannot entertain the ideas we did when we were children. Our worries and cares weight us down endlessly, we are drowning in the Sea of Anxiety, drifting without direction in The Desert of Must Do’s. Until something shocks us out of our fog, we continue along in this way. To live, is to notice each breath. To feel alive, is to notice life around you. We are buried in the Debri of Don’t Know and the Song of Seduction that has forgotten that riches abound all around us each and every day, and we have lost touch with the Notion of Knowing that we already have the gifts we need to See Beyond Strife into the Advantage of Hindsight, having lived more than half my life now, in The Serious Dredge and Drudgery of Delirious Worry and Strife, I have changed direction and now am pursuing the Delights and Delicacies of Today is the Day and Tomorrow can Worry about Itself. There is Something Here and Now, that is of great value, but will go unseen, untouched, unknown, without the Secret. The Secret of Stopping.
