I am keeping my leg and foot still today. The pain is sometimes still fierce and I have learned that if I use heat, elevation, and stillness each day we heal by degrees and breath work is more relieving. This is the 4th time I have just needed to sit it out. This is the 12th day of no knee pain.
As a man thinketh, so is he. Proverbs 23:7
I am having considerable difficulty with BEING still. Even when I am reading a book, I get up and DO something every 2 hours to move my body, rest my eyes and refresh my mind. I miss my three mile walk in the mornings. When I am cooking, I stand for short bursts and then sit down on the stool to stir and blend. I have watched several movies in order to escape into some other mindset. I have made lists of the cupboards to clean and the tasks that are not at hand but must be accomplished. I played a card game and Sudoku on my computer. I am awake and I just feel a strong need to be DOING.
I’m just thinkin’ that I should be DOING something and accomplishing more. I have one friend who does a whole month of posts for her blog in one afternoon. I’m just thinkin’ I would enjoy my summer if I did that too and I just need to get DOING. I am feeling guilty about just staring out the window and watching the trees sway in the wind and the gulls play in the sky. Why if I was at the beach, I would be looking up from my book and doing just that same gazing and not feeling these feelings. I would be DOING relaxation away from home and walking, tipping rocks so the crabs come running out from under, and exploring…
The sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being ~Car Jung
I am DOING the work of healing this BEING and while I am feeling the heat and raising foot I just need to BE.
To BE careful,
to BE content,
to BE worthy,
This is enough.
I am thinking I need to take this time to celebrate BEING and rejoice and be glad in it. Do you ever pause in your DOING to think about BEING? Do you kindle a light?
Looking forward to your comments
