I was touched by a phrase written by islandrain in her post “Passing Through Copenhagen” which has become for me, since I read it, a kind of mantra. She wrote, “Relieve the soul by simply being.” Not sure how you feel about the phrase, but even as I read it, it had a profoundly restful sway over me. I found myself quietly saying it over and over again.
It got me thinking about just how heavy in soul we can become by our constant pretence, competitiveness, false perceptions of ourselves and the many other illusions we carry. To learn to simply be, is not only freeing, but as the phrase says, a wonderful relief.
Thanks islandrain for your gift and reminder.
