A very warm welcome to the August edition of One Day at a Time.
It is summer, so go outside and take a look. At the sky, the trees. Listen to the whisper of the wind, the song of the birds, the distant traffic. Notice the play of light. Effortlessly, be with all this, directly, without paying attention to your thoughts and verbal descriptions of it. For a moment, let go of all you think you know. Just be.
From the freshness of here and now, you will see that you belong to it all, and it all belongs to you. Everything is interconnected and one. Experiencing this, we find safety and peace. We come home to the truth of ourselves, and we love it because our natural essence is love. From this simple, state of being, is it possible to do harm? This is what we learn from the natural world, which does not judge itself or try to become something. It simply is.
We want to encourage you to take a moment to be quiet and see whether this resonates with you. We would love to share your responses, thoughts and experiences through these pages, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
We also hope you find something in this month's offerings that will nourish and inspire you.
With love to everyone out there,
