Humans can be very goal-oriented beings. Even when we recreate there tends to be a go-go-go attitude. We jet-ski, we bike, we move and do. We are ever onward, ever out there exercising, constructing, making things happen.
I have plenty of those moments though as my waistline expands and my age advances my goals are less physical. I write and relp. I "produce something." But even before retirement my well-being required veg time, time when I seemed to be doing absolutely nothing. It makes me feel me feel lazy and guilty no longer.
Those times have an important purpose. They are recharging moments. Minutes when the soul breathes a sigh and slows to recognize its own pulse. Mine are also times devoted to... devotion. My eyes look on this world and such love and gratitude happens.
There is no way to describe it. I believe Creation appreciates the energy boost and I offer Her my admiration and my thanks. Take a minute or more from your day, every day, and notice the miracle that surrounds us. Even when our lives are in pain, stressed, full of sadness or in anger, we have them and that is amazing stuff. Even in the garbage the sky holds air, clouds fill with water, the planets spins and renews. How improbable is that? If you think God did it all then thank your deity. If you don't believe in a god just recognize the wonder that this place happened.
