Today I came home.
I stopped running – from my life, from my emotions, from my fears.
I resisted the urge to do something – ANYTHING – but sit. I resisted the urge to find a reason or an excuse to keep running. To keep myself busy. To keep myself occupied.
Instead I sat down on my cushion.
And I came home.
I came back home into my mind, and into my body.
And I smiled.
I felt peace, and comfort. And I found the home I had been looking for. And it was within myself.
Isn’t it empowering to do that, which is a paradox but true. To choose to do nothing and to have the awesome feeling of total control as you do it (or in reality to not do anything) 🙂
That is so true!!! :-). And it’s just such an awesome feeling to sit. To stop running, and just sit.
Beautiful, dear Megan–simply beautiful.
Thank you so much lovely!! :-). It was amazing the amount of comfort I found in sitting yesterday. After my partner ended our relationship 3 weeks ago, I have been constantly running. Running from myself, from the pain, from the hurt, from life. Yesterday I stopped, and I just sat and came back to myself. It’s a work in progress – I need to continue to give myself the opportunity to heal.
This is lovely and touching post. Wise too. Just tweeted it forward.
Thank you so much Tom!!! Love & blessings to you dear friend.
I so much need to do that. And I am not there yet.
Son – I am only just starting to get myself into that place… it’s a work in progress. My partner ended our relationship unexpectedly 3 weeks ago, and I’ve been hurting so much since. And I’ve been constantly running – from myself, from the pain, from the fear. Which is my usual habit when I am stressed. I try to keep myself as busy as I possibly can. But I’ve come to realise that in order to address how I am feeling, and get past it, I need to just stop and sit with that suffering. And allow myself to feel it fully.
…the beauty of spirituality is that once we know that all is One ‘running’ becomes futile, because running away from the totality means running away from ourselves…
Oh exactly!!!! That is so true – and something I am starting to really understand. Thank you for your comment _/\_
