Where does wisdOM cOMe frOM anyway? Where do we seek it? I know for me personally, I lean on my family, friends, associates, and even perfect strangers to impart wisdOM when I need it most………but what I found out was that while all the advice and wisdOM from others was absolutely perfect for their lives…….it just didn’t fit mine.
Then (because of my yoga practice) I did something totally strange and foreign to me……..I asked mySELF the questions I wanted to know……and I waited. and waited. and waited. At first the waiting for the answers I wanted to know (in our day and age of instant gratification) was grueling…..then the waiting became cOMforting. Why? Because as the answers started to trickle in, I started to trust in the process that more answers were on the way. I started to let go of my needing to know right now, and continued living in the mOMent knowing that it would cOMe precisely when I was ready for it. Our egos want the answer NOW, our true nature can wait/discover/uncover with perfect timing.
This freed up an enormous amount of time and energy spent worrying on “finding the right answer”. This gift of meditation granted mySELF more time to notice those ordinary moments turned into an extraordinary life.
