After several weeks of travel, I slept for the entire weekend to recover. Exciting, right? :) As I found some secret store of energy this morning, I woke up early and went for a long bike ride. Listening to meditative tunes, I started getting back to Zen ;)
A quote from Rumi kept repeating itself in my mind, “Be like melting snow. Wash yourself of yourself.”
This is such a lovely notion. It renews. So often we get stuck in our concerns and worries. If we are not careful, these build and we are left carrying a heavy weight.
Each moment is a new beginning. But the present moment is fleeting. When is now? As soon as try to capture it, it is already gone.
If we are able to move past our stories about ourselves…and who we think we are…we get closer to the truth. We drop the heavy weight. We become Light. If we strip away our past, our possessions, and our attachments, who are we?
