It is so peaceful at this time of day. Time to read, reflect, pray, meditate and write. All the things that feed my soul. It the past several months, I've been looking for balance in my life and all I had to do was surrender and let it emerge.
I've never been a sleeper. Even as a teenager, I felt like sleep was a waste of time. I don't believe that today, but I do believe that I am happier when I wake up early. My doctor gave me sleeping pills which work wonders and I thought (ego) the extra sleep would do me good. What I found was my life became out of balance.
If you've ever driven a car with a wheel out of balance, you'll know what a rough and scary ride that is. In fact, if it's too much out of balance, the car will bounce down the road. A very precarious state of affairs indeed.
That is precisely how my gut has been feeling. This morning I am at peace, my mind is clear and I still have time to workout and get to work on time.
If you're life feels out of control, take a step back, sit in the quiet and listen for direction. It will come. As soon as you let go of the steering wheel, you'll realize someone much better at directions will drive your life. Fantasizing freedom from expectation and manipulation.
