Uncertain

Too lost
Uncertain
Just hurting
In pain
Never knowing
What could of been
Just searching,
For more gain
Looking out;
Seeking
Lost here,
From within
Never knowing
Simply wanting
All lost
In uncertainty
Where to find you
Right here
Where you;
Have always been
💕

The lesson of value

Why is it so often only when we lose something that we appreciate it’s real value, How can we begin to value things more before this point?

In my own experience I have come to realise how important some things are only when it was too late

Like life was somehow teaching me, here, look at what you already have;

Whether that be with money, friendships, support or even states of being,

And more than anything life teaches me how important gratitude is,
Perhaps this is why we need this duality in life, for without it how could we possibly know or appreciate those good things.

Additionally, this is why gratitude is so important, not only important but essential. In consistently practicing gratitude, we recognise the value here and now. Then not always needing the comparison.

Ultimately however it does come down to our choice of focus. We can see what we have or perceive what we don’t have and as part of nature what we consistently give energy to will increase.

Start with value;
Recognise all you are, all you already are, have done and are doing.

As beings of nature we naturally evolve. In keeping our focus on what we’re grateful for as well where we’re heading, then all will evolve in the right direction.

Most often where we are right now, we already have more than enough, and we always are of infinite value.

To truly value something
Is to be with it completely,
Giving every effort in that moment

With that;

The only answer,
Here and now
Can always be gratitude 💗

Discipline and focus

Discipline and focus allow for effective learning and adaptability in flow. If not for the discipline and structure then focus is scattered. There is then a lack of awareness and therefore inability to adapt, flow and grow efficiently in practice.

The discipline and structure should be aligned accordingly in order to learn the next step and movement. The adaptability that comes with it allows for necessary training and new things to be learnt with the awareness to apply where most appropriate.

If the ego or prior knowledge gets in the way then there is lack of awareness and an inability to adapt and learn effectively.

Without sufficient respect for the teacher/ mentor nothing can actually be learnt. Because of this the whole mind should be emptied and full awareness applied each and every time one is being taught.

The teachers knowledge is rightly far beyond what the student knows, therefore full awareness, discipline, respect and focus is always required.

Sidenotes

– Emptying your cup allows for full focus
– Self discipline is essential in order to learn and execute fully
– Without full focus one cannot learn and execute fully
– With full focus can adapt accordingly- when something is not working then have the awareness to change it. To be like water, adapt and flow.
– Discipline also shows respect to the art and teacher, also clearing the mind allowing for learning.
