“A great silent space holds all of nature in its embrace. It also holds you.”
Every day I reflect on this quote from Eckhart Tolle. I like to think that by getting in touch with this silent space I am able to unlock more inspiration and creativity in my life. Every day I make it a point to craft or be creative in some way. It is one thing, for me, that remains constant in a world where everything is in flux.
Now that the myMDA website has been shut down, I revamped this blog and started a new group on Facebook, MD Community. This group is open to anyone: https://www.facebook.com/groups/MuscularDystrophyCommunity.
Come join in the conversation here or on FB!
As I learned to cope with life with a wheelchair, practicing meditation daily, I started to find inspiration when I wasn’t looking – like from my cat, Jetta. I look forward to rolling out in the morning and having her jump onto my lap. Simple moments like this bring me joy. I find I am guided by books like Stillness Speaks by Eckhart Tolle and You Are Here by Thich Nhat Hahn. which add depth to my Christian background.
Here are some of the important concepts that Jetta the cat helps me remember each day:
- live in the moment
- nobody owns me
- I am the queen of my domain
- relaxation cannot be over-rated
- there is a time to be out and about
- there is a time to be in and within
- accept people as they are
- accept live as it is
- let it be
