Shaking the snow globe never brings clarity

The more I live, the more I see that our main job is to stop shaking the snow globe of our minds that clouds us from our pure awareness of the moment.

It’s when we think we need to get and get and get that that snow globe just gets more and more shaken. Soon, we’re in a blizzard of thought. Separated from our innate presence of spirit.

Until we sit down, close our eyes, breathe, and allow our minds to settle. This is when we see the last few snowflakes float across the screen of our minds.

And we realize.
Damn… All is well.

When we can fully sink in to the given moment, we see that all we ever need is right here.

It’s from this place of clear mind that right action, creative exuberance, and the best rap lyrics come out of.

That said, it helps to realize that trying to shake every snowflake to the ground isn’t going to make the snow globe stop snowing.

It’s only when we set it down and enjoy those last few drifting flakes as they settle that clarity finally comes.

Hat tip to Michael Neill for the snow globe analogy.
