My theme is about time..
Are you ready to relax, to let tedious thoughts go, to release worry into the ground, to simply focus on you and what it feels like to breathe? Are you ready to appreciate the minutes you've been given?
It's about time.
Today's theme focused around a story by Ursula Wills-Jones called The Time- Sweepers. It is a fictional short story about time sweepers whose job it is to sweep up everyone's wasted time. Here's a link to the full story (http://www.eastoftheweb.com/short-stories/UBooks/Time898.shtml) but I loved the last bit of it: "There isn't a moral to this story. It's just that if you are planning on throwing away your time, please remember - somebody has to pick it up. "
And why would be so careless as to throw away time? Do what you enjoy, laugh and love and take time for yourself.
Other quotes/poems from today's class:
"TODAY IS A GIFT -
I thought I was taking it away from someone else but
the halls were empty so I gifted the time to me.
a snuffed inner light began to burn, embers of orange became flickers
flickers patiently growing to flame
a resurgence of spirit and life consumed me
my breath faltered for a moment until I remembered I breathe for me
an inhale found an exhale found an inhale again
release embraced me"
"Watch for the judgmental mind that discounts small movements as insignificant or unimportant or the ambitious mind that jumps in to tell you to make your breath bigger or deeper,or labels your perceptions as good or bad in order to arrive at a conclusion."- Donna Farhi
"There is a force within that gives you life--- Seek That.
In your body there lies a priceless jewel--- Seek That.
If you want to find the greatest treasure,
Don't look outside,Look within, and seek That". — Rumi
