Today I spent some time at the beach. My brain was full from a busy few days of travel and meetings. It was time to not think, not do, not try, not create…to simply be present.
The beach is made for day dreaming. Our thoughts seem to flow like the waves, there..then gone…there..then gone. Drifting from one wave to the next. No effort.
To wander the landscape of our interior with no set agenda, no purpose…is a gift of healing. Some may say that day dreaming and not doing are wasted time.
Most know that this is sacred time. The frazzled nerve endings are restored, synapses allowed to rest..and in that place of calm, the connections we have been seeking are made.
The answer to a question…there. Just like that. No effort.
Effort is overrated. Our brilliance always arrives with ease.
