SIT AND STAY IN THE MOMENT

In our present mindset, there will never be enough time or the right moment for the right thing.  We are forever pulled away from ourselves.  There is always something else, somewhere else and something else.  Here and now are never good enough.  We yearn for better and other times.  At least, that is how I was am. I am trying for better.  Well, here I go again – for better instead of accepting what is.

Be careful of seducers, vying for your attention.  Can you be still and quiet long enough to hear what pulls your heart?  The morning sun will come through these trees just so in this moment.  It will make the tabletop shine like golden custard in this moment.  Shadows will fall in the next.

Photo on 2015-08-12 at 2.54 PMI am sitting here in nature’s backdrop.  Bees and flies are buzzing around.  Sheba is ever watchful, trying to catch them with a snap of her jaws.  The sun is before and behind me.  I feel the soft movement of air on my neck.  A spruce branch stir in the breeze.  I have nothing to do and nowhere to go.  For this moment I sit and stay.

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.

    Hi, Lily, I like the part very much. “The sun is before and behind me. I feel the soft movement of air on my neck. A spruce branch stir in the breeze. I have nothing to do and nowhere to go. For this moment I sit and stay.” Nice lifestyle!

  2. Hi lily, glad you and sheba are doing well. The post is awesome. That quiet moment of reflection is missing in this world, when we need it so much. Cheers
