Wisdom in Practice

“Look up…”

I looked up and as I did my head cleared, my lungs expanded and a lightness of being flooded my chest. I felt good. My head seemed to rest more sensibly on my shoulders and I became aware that I was proud of myself. Life was not easy, but when I looked up, I saw the sky and the wind in the trees. With my chin up, I recognised the sovereignty within me… the sovereignty within us all.

I realised that I have been looking down a lot… I realised that I was not alone. So many of us are hurrying through our lives with furrowed brows and faces of worry, hunched over and distracted by the next task on our private get-ahead agenda.

Perhaps we should all take a moment… to look up.
