The center of life is not the circle of life, but instead, the ingredient that keeps us balanced. Being centered requires a sense of tranquility and a presence of peace. It is a knowing that where you are is exactly where you are supposed to be. It is a reminder of where you have been and what you have experienced along the way. Being centered is at the top tier, it is a higher order of learning, it is a destination within your journey. As you move, even though your steps are slow, you know in fact that each day is a success because you are one step closer. The center of life is like a stream of still water. The silence within the beauty is louder than any noise, brighter than any color and deeper than any sea. The uncertainty of life is safe.
There are steps to take in finding your center. For starters, the responsibility on creating that environment is in our control. We must create a space that is safe and serene. Whether there is silence or the sound of singing birds, the presence and our awareness is something we must demand. Once your environment is still and you are aware, connecting with self is key. Are you able to think out loud? Can you hear your inner voice? Are you able to see the beauty in everything around you? If the answer is yes to all of these questions…congratulations…you have arrived.
Connecting with self and finding your center takes time and a bit of boldness. You must be selfish in creating this environment. If being centered is a priority for you…just do it. Everyday we must find a moment to connect with our center…our life depends on it. The quality of life entails that we have healthy relationships, achieve a fulfilling career and experience love. The small things in life are enjoyable. Exploring new avenues of interest are intriguing. Learning new things and gaining knowledge is important. Practicing our faith or tapping into our spirituality makes us feel whole or even human. In life, we are constantly finding ways to create new moments and be inspired. We look forward to joyous times and reasons for good cheer. Being with those that we love and dwelling in seconds of stillness is vital to our well-being. Time flies when we’re having fun and life is too short are reminders to us that life moves when we do.
There are reasons why life is what it is. There is a time for valleys and a time for peaks. There is a time for moments of majic. Unless we are centered, the rotation of time will be ignored. Life will pass us by and in the blink of an eye, poof…it will be over. That quick, that moment will be forever lost. Life is for the living and living is for the life. Finding our center is possible as long as we seek it first. You will find anything if you look for it long enough. Timing is everything and everything is about time. Time will only fly when we choose to use wings and not legs.
