Today I am out in the forest with my dog to see if we can find some mushroom and to explore and enjoy Mother Nature’s simple pleasures.
We brought som coffee and sandwiches and I also took my journal with me. Going through the forest through a new part of it we found fresh tracks from the wild animals living there.
We found some new places, one with very light energies, fairies all over the place and finally ended up at the top of a hill with a beautiful view over the forest on the other side and below us. I love this with all my being. The air, the animals, the rocks, the view and the colours. And sitting down, having a cup of coffee ( de-caff these days 😉 ) and a sandwich is a simple and yet beautiful pleasure. Being one with Mother Nature and all who lives here.
I feel so blessed and grateful for being able to do this. <3
Have a beautiful day! 🙂
In Love and Light
Does being spiritual mean that you need to be serious all the time?
I love the happy Buddha and have a few happy Buddhas in my home. Every time I see them I feel happy and I feel lighter. Since I’ve been quite a “serious” person these Buddhas help me in remembering to have fun and en-joy life. I used to think that others wouldn’t take me seriously if I didn’t act seriously all the time. Now I feel rather the opposite. Being happy is a human right and allowing my Self to laugh and have fun is essential and having enough distance to myself to be able to laugh at myself is a strength rather than a weakness. 🙂 I can still be taken for a serious person.
Being spiritual doesn’t mean that we cannot be human. On the contrary I’d say that being human is part of being here. Spiritual people who are denying their “human-ness” are often in the clouds, not walking their talk. I’ve been there and was fortunate to have a very good friend who dared to confront me on this, which resulted in me deciding to walk my talk and also talk my walk. 😉
En-joying life in my human body and taking care of my human body is just as important as praying, affirmation, meditation and other spiritual practices. It’s all different pieces of the puzzle to me that makes the whole me function and feel good.
Being aware is a key of course and having the courage to see parts of myself that are dark or ugly, acknowledge and accept them and bring them into the Light, thus transforming them. I do not always feel happy, but I believe I am positive and use a positive attitude even when facing my dark sides and I’ve noticed that the more darkness I face and transform, the happier I feel. And within
that happiness lies an immense power. 🙂
So I choose to be as happy as possible, finding and seeing things that makes me laugh and smile. Simple as that! 🙂
I wish you a really happy, awesome day! 🙂
