The word Calm is the word and exercise of the week.
It is not a word that my soul has been friends with the past couple of years.
It is extremely difficult for me to begin this journey of discovery as I have done everything in my power to avoid looking at myself and listening to anything that really comes from that center,.... eye of the storm, top of the mountain or inner core.
I will admit my time has been spent looking at what I am not and becoming frustrated at my attempts to change.
I will take this word "calm" and apply it each day, I will walk closer to my core and visit my soul who must reside there, I will learn to listen, to move and react with respect toward that inner voice, as it is my foundation and I have not yet built upon it.
My exercise today will be to spend at least 20 minutes visiting with nature and listening for this inner voice that is wise and centered.
