In my personal cosmology, the essence of the universe is love. We are enfolded in its energy. We bathe in light and bask in love – always.
During challenging times of late, when plate is full and shoulders sag, stories of unease and unworthiness infiltrate my inner landscape. Disengaged from the present moment and disconnected from the wisdom of body and heart, I get lost in my head.
One route back to reality in the now involves returning to the body through sensory awareness.
Another route, one I've been following lately, involves taking my cosmology to heart – consciously opening to what I believe is happening right now and remembering that, in this moment, I am bathed in light and basking in love.
Taking time to bathe and bask in the nurture of now – what a merciful respite from old habits of rumination, review and rehearsal.
