Connecting with our current location

November 25, 2018

Shop location

Connecting with our current location is easier when we feel comfortable with wherever we happen to be.

That said, it is the case that occasionally we find ourselves in places in which, on the surface at least, it is extremely difficult to even consider connecting with our current location. Perhaps it is exactly here we need to practice going beyond our initial reaction to embrace life by connecting with our current location.

Waiting for the ‘perfect’ time, situation or set of circumstances in general before attempting anything, including connecting with our current location, is a risky strategy. As we all know, it inevitably slips into worries about later as excuses bubble up to keep us from doing whatever we want or need to be doing.

It should be pointed out, however, that even if we are connecting with our current location or at least advocating such a move, there is no reason to think this implies we passively accept everything life throws at us, including where we are.

Making the most of the moment is a proactive approach and one likely to impact positively on how we go about experiencing now and future moments.

But then again maybe it is better to sit on the proverbial seat in the corner and wait for things to change, knowing everything passes. To share your input on the issue of connecting with our current location, please leave a comment below.

Kindest regards.

Passing through

October 23, 2016

Passing through a tunnel


To a certain extent life is all about connecting with various experiences as we embrace our existence and live our potential. Yet taking ownership of all the thoughts passing through our mind can be a tiring exercise and one we do not need to engage in.

The time to shine as we are passing through the day is always or never right, depending on our perspective of the moment. How we view each situation invariably determines how we cope or indeed thrive with it.

In terms of moving physically from one point or location to another, in many respects the same notions apply. We might be consciously linked to one place, but with forward-carrying momentum we reach another destination by passing through invisible barriers between ‘here’ and ‘there’.

On a personal level, accepting we are just passing through this life allows us the freedom to enjoy what is before us, together with what we create with our efforts. The transient nature of everything should itself be enough of a reason for us to appreciate everything, while grasping onto nothing.

With the minutes passing through the hour and accepting time is of a premium, I will stop now.

Kindest regards.
