OM.2 - Day 8 - Taking It Easy

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God (Phil 4:6)

"Let Things Come to you" - Yogi Bhajan (by way of Yogi Tea teabag)

The other day a good sisterfriend of mine who is embarking on a huge journey that requires a lot of physical and emotional stamina and time said to me that she almost quit the journey the other day, but she sat still and had some time with God, and a miracle happened that would allow for her to have the whole day off so that she wouldn't feel so overwhelmed. I realized and said to her, "Sometimes we just have to sit still so we can receive God's miracles"

I think our society often rewards those who do so much that they stretch themselves so thin. We think it is normal to be stressed and sleep-deprived while trying to go after our goal. Bless those of you who put your health and sleep first! But for most of us who are working so hard that sometimes we don't even get to enjoy life, today I encourage you to take it easy and let things come to you. If you already take it easy, take a day off from something that you always are doing. Today there is no need to be anxious, instead let us sit still and trust!

When or if you feel yourself going into a moment of stress, panic or fear - remember that you are connected to the Infinite Source and therefore never lacking in any area. Sit still and enjoy what is!
