Take it to the Mat: Our Time

This week our blog is going to be short and sweet, honoring the life of a young mother who left our world too soon. Her passing is one that shook up my world a bit. A realization of how short this life may be. I am thankful that I do not take this life for granted. I feel very much aware of the interconnectedness of it all. But, being human, we all lapse from time to time. Stuck in the mind, we over-rationalize, over-think, and “try” to justify everything.

So today, let’s put it all – everything and life which is everything – into perspective. There is no such thing as “me” time, “play” time, “baby” time, “spouse” time… there is no such thing as “quality” time. There is only time. There are many shades of gray in time; there are overlaps of what is needed and what we need. If we can take just a few seconds each day to embrace the gray, and to see the paradoxical unity of all – the unlabelled and unlabellable, how our lives will change. Universally, our world would change. Change is the only thing that we know will happen. We can depend upon change. It is without need to compartmentalize such a profound process, as time is a process, a journey. Embrace time – and consider all time as OUR time.

Our time is short, but full of opportunity. Share your love, share your light, and find beauty in the gray. For those of you who have a mother, earthly and above, or who are presently and forever a mother… let us part with words from the beautiful Celine Dion…

A Mother’s Prayer

(Dear Mother Earth)

I pray you’ll be my eyes
And watch her where she goes
And help her to be wise
Help me to let go

Every mother’s prayer
Every child knows
Lead her to a place
Guide her with your grace
To a place where she’ll be safe

I pray she finds your light
And holds it in her heart
As darkness falls each night
Remind her where you are

Every mother’s prayer
Every child knows
Need to find a place
Guide her with your grace
Give her faith so she’ll be safe

Lead her to a place
Guide her with your grace
To a place where she’ll be safe

I imagine that my sweet friend in heaven has had a hand in this post. So thank you, Jamie for the love and light you shared during your short time on earth.

My you be balanced and open, may you be peaceful and present, may you be full of life-joy, and may you be unconditionally loved.

Namaste.

Abundant Peace,

Jennifer
