[I am currently in Italy with my husband and his family for the Christmas holidays. This is a re-share and small update of a poem that I wrote a few years ago.
To create change in your life, you have to do things differently.
Open up space for nothingness so new inspiration can come through.
Step off your current path so you can experience something new.
Be willing to become lost. You will see new things. See the world differently. Strengthen your intuition and connection to your soul.
Be willing to let go of the life that you currently have. Be willing to wander and experiment.]
Let go of your schedule, your timetables, your calendar, your planning, your busyness and your need to make your waking moments productive.
Go outside, exactly as you are. Go to a park or a forest, a beach, your backyard or any space you have longed to explore.
Let your feet follow your eyes re-opened as if born anew and seeing for the first time.
Go to what calls your attention, to what flirts with your senses with its bright pretty colours or intriguing patterns and shapes.
Let your mind rest and your life force move you.
Wander without aim, without rules or constraints.
Wander with curiosity.
Wander with faith in its aimlessness.
Wandering produces nothing yet yields everything.
Wandering reclaims the instinct of your soul cut off the moment your life became ruled by your calendar and time, your to do lists and busyness, and the idea that you have to make something of your life for your life to matter instead of living fluidly as an expression of joy.
With love and courage,
