Date Night With Your Inner Wisdom

Inside of me there is a great space
Full of wisdom and joy,
Love and happiness…
I am just too busy to visit
For more than a few moments…

You see I have a life
Things to do
Things that take my time
For more than a few moments

Don’t get me wrong
Some of the taking of time is good
It fuels my heart and spirit
Feeds me and my family
And gives me a sense of purpose
For more than a few moments

But some of the time
That is taken and spent
On the to do’s, must do’s and should do’s
I would like to take back
For myself
For more than a few moments

Does that make me selfish?
Does that make me greedy?
How will it all get done if I don’t do it myself?
These are the thoughts that fill my head
When I think about taking my time back, creating space for me
For more than a few moments

But today I think I will change the channel
And tune my mind into a new thought stream
One that broadcasts messages like
Yes, take time, create space for yourself
For more than a few moments

For the act of creating space, slowing down, pausing
Is not one of slacking, selfishness or greed
But a daring choice of self-love
Your body, mind and body were built to pause
For more than a few moments

But in a world so un-pause friendly, the pause can seem impossible.
Until you change your channel
And tune into to the natural pauses of the earth
And match your body, spirit and mind to hers
For more than a few moments

On this day, Winter Solstice as the day goes black for long
I invite you to dance with the earth to the slowest of waltzes
Slow down your internal rhythm, move with stillness,
Find silence, reflect on your year past, and celebrate yourself
For more than a few moments

In fact take the whole night.
To love the woman or man you have become
Through the passing of this 12 months time
After all, don’t you deserve to soak in all you have done and become
For more than a few moments

Find gratitude for the surprises the year has brought.
Celebrate your successes.
Embrace your failures.
And on this night, find, gather and benefit from the Wisdom you earned over the year
Because you chose to pause on Winter Solstice, for more than a few moments.
