I forgot how amazing it feels to stay up all night and watch the sun rise.
It's really those simple little things in life that can totally give you the refreshment you need. Not necessarily physical refreshment, because I am pretty freaking tired right now.. But more along the lines of a mental and emotional refreshment.
I've found that it's really the simple things in life that do that for me, whether it be coloring or taking a walk by myself. I find that these little things allow me to focus on what's really important; me.
These things are liberating in a sense that they are complex enough to forget or mask the excess in your life, yet effortless enough to get carried away.
This, my friends, is called meditation. It restores balance and peace upon the meditator and allows them to regain balance within their mind, body, and soul. I believe this is absolutely crucial to being human. The universe is a working entity, and we are just going with the ebb and flow of its waves. The current can be incredibly stressful, and like with all things that reside within it, we become weathered.
Like a mineral or stone. We become weathered from the flow, so eventually our true, beautiful selves shine through from the experience, and we become crystals. Meditation eases the tumble, and polishes our shine.
Whoah. I certainly didn't think I was capable of such a beautiful metaphor..
Regardless, I hope this means something you. Go meditate. Live in the moment, and refresh your mind.
