Our culture does not encourage relaxation, though it pushes and forces it on us with aggressive solutions and suggestions. Relax! It becomes almost a demand, like standing in a field and calling loudly for wild animals to come to us. We must create within ourselves the environment and spaciousness for relaxation. We must encourage it gently. Like the Field of Dreams, if we build it, relaxation will come. It's a letting go and surrender of controlling how it will happen. It's trusting the process of life and the journey we are on, taking in the sites with all of our curiosity and wonder. And remembering and appreciating what a beautiful adventure this is.
I am willing to let go today and invite the energy of relaxation into my interior space. I trust the journey and appreciate the sites along the way.
