Awaken To Life

Purlple coneflower on one of my favourite walks.

Each day, we have the opportunity to awaken to the beauty of the larger world, nature, those around us, and our own goals. 

We don't need much in the way of possessions, or wealth, to experience such moments of awakening and awareness. 

Travel to exotic locations is not necessary. 

But we do need time. This is not something that can be rushed.

Other than that, the requirements are simple.

All you need to awaken to life is to sit alone with yourself, calm, quiet, and free of distraction. Repeat. 

I am grateful that I do not have too many things taking up space, making it hard to simply exist and appreciate my natural surroundings. I do not take my health, or the time I have remaining, for granted.

Today I am open to whatever comes my way.
