So, what did Einstein mean by moving?
No, I don’t think so. If we don’t stop working every once in a while, we’ll burn out.
Did he mean exercising?
No, I don’t think Einstein was particularly interested in working out, but even if he was, I don’t think that’s what he meant.
I think what he meant was to keep our minds clear and our hearts open to guidance from our Captain. To stay alert of our environment and aware of where we’re going. That way we can make necessary adjustments as we ride along the path of life.
Sometimes we’ll get a chance to coast, but even then, we need to keep our balance and be ready to pedal when the next hill comes up.
As we head into Thanksgiving, let’s try to keep our minds clear and our hearts open as we pedal through the holiday. Every moment offers us another chance to make those necessary adjustments to keep us on the path to a successful holiday. When everyone is getting along, enjoy the chance to coast. Savor it just like you would enjoy the feast. But when personalities start to clash, consider it an opportunity to get in touch with your Captain, focus on your heart and keep on pedaling aka praying.
However you do that is up to you.
Soon, you’ll be through all the drama and on your way down the other side of the hill.
Remember, faith in yourself is the strongest magic there is.
Have a wonderful day, my friendly blog reader!
p.s. I pulled this OSHO Zen card right after I published this morning….
“As this figure moves across the stones, he steps lightly and non-seriously, and at the same time absolutely balanced and alert. Behind the swirling, ever-changing waters we can see the shapes of buildings; there appears to be a city in the background. The man is in the marketplace but at the same time outside of it, maintaining his balance and able to watch it from above. This card challenges us to move away from our preoccupations with other spaces and other times, and stay alert to what is happening in the here and now. Life is a great ocean in which you can play if you drop all your judgments, your preferences and the attachment to the details of your long-term plans. Be available to what comes your way, as it comes. And don’t worry if you stumble or fall; just pick yourself up, dust yourself off, have a good laugh, and carry on.”
