I Live With Less to Gain More

IMG_9682I live with less to gain time, more peace, more meaning.

I gain sanity, happiness and energy from having less to choose from (clothes, processed food, commitments).

Be Here; Now

Presence is power – peaceful power that carries humility.

The power of it eats restlessness and drinks anxiety when sat with, meditated on…presence.

It is the power in the great breeze that moves tree tops – the calmness in the majestic nature of that and you being there with it, in that moment of surrender.

It manifests things when you come into the here and now. It gives you a space to take real, tangible action.

Great energies of this world guide us in that moment, but can only do so when you create the space for it. 

Your power is here. It isn’t in tomorrow, or yesterday, not in the wishes, the wants, ‘haven’t yet got’ or branded materials that shine.

That true bright light you seek comes through in the now.

Be here with me – right now.

I serve what I have and right now I have an amazing opportunity here in this great place called Australia.
