Every once and a while we need to be heard and given an invitation to rest … This poem by Kaveri Patel provides just this.
You who always have so many things to do so many places to be your mind spinning like fan blades at high speed each moment always a blur because you’re never still.
I know you’re tired. I also know it’s not your fault. The constant brain-buzz is like a swarm of bees threatening to sting if you close your eyes. You’ve forgotten something again. You need to prepare for that or else. You should have done that differently.
What if you closed your eyes? Would the world fall apart without you? Or would your mind become the open sky flock of thoughts flying across the sunrise as you just watched and smiled.
Giving yourself permission to pause and bring peacefulness to your mind is important right now.
To bring an extra pause to help allow your mind to focus and bring greater calm, consider this...
1) Get a piece of paper and a pen 2) Draw a square on your page, big enough that you can doodle inside 3) Inside this square doodle a sunrise. You can use shapes, colours anything that comes to mind 4) When your doodle is complete, take a deep breath in... and exhale slowly, gently easing back to the next part of your day
