My 2016 was a year of movement and travels and since I was usually in motion, I'd like to make 2017 in stillness.
2016 was the year I search for outside to fill me from the inside. I look for other people or other place to explore, befriend, and be accustomed to, loosing me in it. The noise outside blocks from what I have in the inside. I looked at life like a tv screen completely forgetting me as the viewer probably because I haven't created much or done much for me to see myself in the whole picture. Maybe that's really the essence of creation, this invokes my participation in my life. For me to see myself being it, I need to create something be it a moment, an object, a masterpiece, and see myself through my creation, and stand in my world as futile or as strong as my creation made me.
There's a sense of urgency that's blocking me to think, to hope and to be positive. It's like a siren that rings endlessly, that forces me to move, fast now. Move, go, fast, now, over and over like a broken record. With stillness, it could allow me to embrace and appreciate whatever I have, thereby making me embrace and love wherever I am, in whatever situation I may be in. To see that wherever I am now, is exactly where I should be at this moment, gives me a sense of rightness and a level of victory. This gives space for clarity and for openness to catch whatever signs that life would direct me to.
I'm going to invite stillness in 2017, more inward reflection, and more writing, more meditation, more prayers, more yoga, more being in the moment and more appreciation, and let's see what life throws at me in that space.
