01 Nov Effortless Beauty
I have an idea that I want to start creating a weekly video about whatever pops up that day, on our path to creating a beautiful life, one minute at a time. Friday morning, I was at a favorite stop on our hike when I looked around and thought, “this is so beautiful!
Each and every tree is doing its own thing, having its own experience, changing in its own way with no regard for anyone else! Such effortless beauty!” Then I thought, “this would be a great video for this week! I wish I had some make-up on and didn’t have hat hair”. Really?! LOL! So clearly I still have some work to do on my own thinking!
What I want you and I to do is to really appreciate ourselves in all of our versions, with no regard for the approval of anyone else and perfectly in tune with the infinite. I want us to understand that, while our bodies are beautiful and unique, we are SO much more than just our physical presence.
We are spiritual beings, having a human experience, not the other way around. I turned on the phone and made the video anyway, but when I ran it by my adviser, he said it was totally fake! That it make him think I was making a commercial! When I watched it again, I realized he was right and I have no idea how to be my authentic self when a camera is on. I’ll be working on that. In the meantime, don’t try so hard to live up to some external standard, but appreciate all of the beautiful things about you, right in this very moment. Have a lovely Sunday! Namaste’.
