or transforms something
in a mysterious or impressive way
The food you eat
The people you encounter
The places you visit
The tv you watch
The films you view
The books you read
The time you spend texting
The time you spend on the computer
The music you listen to
The time you spend in nature
The time you spend working
The time you spend playing
The time you spend making something
The time you spend in the garden
The time you spend painting or crafting or…
The feelings you experience
The animals that you meet along the way
And so on…
Through all of this (and more), an alchemical process is fostered. There is not one thing that you do that doesn’t stimulate something else inside of you. The body/being is always trying to harmonize input.
Writing stimulates an alchemical process. Especially when I get the message behind my words. I put the pen to the page. I write, I turn the page and write some more. If I am connected to what I write, there is possibility for change. Sometimes, I need to reread what I’ve written several times before it sinks in. I have to really listen to what I’m saying for the seeds of change to begin to grow in a direction that I want to foster. That said, the physical act of writing changes something in me.
We allot a certain amount of time to our daily activities, consciously or unconsciously. Are you pleased with how you use your time? Are you spending time in ways that are beneficial to your growing in the ways that you deeply desire? Over the course of the next week, take notice of how you allot your time. Is there something you’d like to change? I ask this of myself too.
