Quote I Am Pondering: Eckharte Tolle

I’m not sure where it this will go. I really want to write more than just 7 Point each week and dropping a podcast or two each week. As I read, become overtly curious, I am driven to share. Randomly I’ll blonder onto interesting thoughts or other learning, I run across a lot of great quotes that I can not, not share. When one in particular stops me dead in my tracks, makes me pause to ponder its impact on me, I need to share it.

This might be career advice from a coach. A prompt from my journaling efforts to keep me writing. Or, a random treasure I stumble on. They can come from anywhere. It’s my hope, sharing how they impact me, what they make me think about, how much more curious I become because of them, I hope they might be something you would enjoy too. Love to hear from you below in the comments on what you think. Here’s one I kept coming back to and what I thought about it.

“I’m grateful for always this moment, the now, no matter what form it takes.” – Eckhart Tolle

Stop for a moment, really think about what you’re feeling, hearing, seeing, using all your senses to take in an experience. How often do we do this? Are you looking at a feed right now, or feeling this exact moment what the temperature on your skin is trying to say to you? Here’s what my moment is saying.

I reflect on how it really does take all these different forms in the quote. There’s a steel mug in my hands, partnered with smooth cold glass. A frosted glass. A glass that if it could be breath on it’s own in a winter tundra, would clearly see its own breath as it breathed it’s last breath. Ambient notes of the cosmos wafting across hand made wood flooring ping back up to a bed formless, with out a headboard. The stillness owns a chill that keeps the ice in the steel tumbler from melting. Cold enough, but not uncomfortable to the furnace of my skin as it marries with my hands.

These are moments that I truly feel, when I let ALL my senses, in whatever form they can take, be allowed to be felt. When I can pause, to be grateful for the ability to even feel them. Understanding the meaning of how they all come together to tell a story so much more positive then the Twitter feed that had my attention more than just a few minutes previously. A very human experience. One I’ve taken for granted more than I have honored it. The forms we take for granted because we are ruled by our anxiousness, our agitation to be in motion. I’m slowing my heart, my thoughts, giving myself permission to feel.
