“When you’re in tune in with life you will find yourself doing everything at the right time. All you have to do to get into tune is take time to go into the silence to find your direct contact with Me. This is why those times of peace and stillness are so vitally important for you, far more important than you realize. A musical instrument, when it is out of tune, creates discord; you, when you are out of tune, do the same. A musical instrument has to be kept in tune; you, too, have to keep yourself in tune, and you cannot do it unless you take time to be still. It cannot be done when you are rushing around anymore than a musical instrument can be tuned while it is being played. It is in the silence that the notes can be heard and be readjusted. It is in the silence that you can hear My voice, and I can tell you what to do.” ~ Eileen Caddy
One of the things I enjoy most about my home is the abundance of wildlife in my yard, especially the cardinals. We have several sets that hang out in our yard. Yes, they usually travel in pairs, probably because they mate for life. Anyway, they tended to hang out in the Rose of Sharon tree in our back yard.
We had to remove the tree last year as it had become diseased. I feared my lovely red bird friends would stop visiting. They took up on other tree branches, and began to visit the front yard more often. This got me thinking about life, disease, focus, and change. It requires being in tune to be “whole healthy”. Are you physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually well balanced? Are there particular areas you tend to neglect? Do you focus on one area more than the others? How do you know when one has slipped?
I am as guilty as anyone else in allowing areas of my life to slip out of balance. Fortunately, I usually notice something is awry and follow my intuition in restoring equilibrium. Last night I felt more tired than usual. My food had not been digesting well which led to a bit of discomfort. In response I took a probiotic which in the past has resulted in this same scenario. In general I have to keep small amounts of food on my stomach throughout the day to curtail that off feeling. Everything I ate resulted in nausea followed by dizziness. My intention here is not to whine as I’m actually going somewhere with this. I ended up going to bed early. Very early, like seven thirty. I woke up this morning feeling great, well rested and stomach mostly back to normal. Apparently, the first thing my body needed was rest. However, the indigestion issues signal a few changes in diet for me…
It all comes down to awareness of components of self. I need and desire balance. I am willing to step out of my comfort zone to focus on my areas of need. Now, what does this have to do with the cardinals in my yard? They stretched their wings…so can I. How about you? Are you will to work on any diseased areas of your life?
