Until today, I did always write about sports, my races or my training sessions. On Sunday while running 17 km, I thought a lot. As much I as I am bad about meditate in my daily life, I mean when not feeling well, sitting in a corner, closing my eyes and focus on myself and my thoughts are difficult for me, as soon as I start training my mind enters into a meditative state.
The weather is now getting a bit warmer. But in the last weeks, it was constantly raining and the weather was very cold. We were all waiting for the sun to come back. For warmer days. Perhaps for some good news. Some answers. Waiting is not easy. For me it is fearful. Perhaps for this reason, I tend to be late. Waiting is like some lost time.
Nowadays, everything is reachable immediately. Thanks our phones, the social media, internet. We forget what waiting is. We are constantly impatient. We forget the value of the patience. How it adds a small extra to the things we have been waiting for. Yes, when we get, live or receive what we have been hoping for, we will then appreciate it more. Feel it better. Love it in a more precious way.
So the watchword is “don’t stress it”. Let’s learn again to appreciate these empty times. Live with the flow.
Actually as the kilometers went by this morning, I understand that further being constantly hoping for a better future, for a more exciting tomorrow, we are constantly behaving in a strategic way.
Let’s live with the flow and you will see how things will change in life
The wind was running over my face. Then it started to rain. The elements around me were crying for me. I wasn’t especially sad. I was only feeling that I was close to touch a very tiny element. I kept continuing running. And suddenly I understood. Live with the flow. Trust life. Listen to your inner voice. Things that I have been trying to do for months. And I am not the only one. Most of the people I talked with mention energy, kismet, same wave of lengths, positive thinking. But on the same time, more than ever we behave in a strategic way. In the way we interact with other human beings. I am sure that it will be for all of us good to stop behaving like that and live with the flow.
So what does push us to keep accounts about our words and actions? Let’s turn to the facts. Why is it so difficult in 2017 to express what we feel? To tell with words what our heart says. Why holding two different speeches, “yes, I live with the flow and I believe in kismet” but on the same time “I won’t send him/her a message first, why didn’t he/she write to me?” That’s the way we show our interest. We fix rules and play.
I know. You start to have a smile on your face. But it is like that. I am not pretending to give here any solution nor answer. Nor to make anybody feel guilty. I just aim us to realize that we should stop playing with our own feelings and as a continuation with the ones of the others.
Life is really about sharing. Living in the present moment. Sending good energy. Making surprises. Sometimes taking some risks. But life is not about calculating how many days later you can again call someone that you feel that you could perhaps fall in love with but that you are not actually sure because your friend’s friend told you that he or she shouldn’t have talked about this subject during the second time you had coffee together. Do you get what I mean? Stop. Stop. Close your eyes. Listen to your inner voice. Take a deep breathe and stop playing a strategy which is nowhere written. Start living.
