“Start living now. Stop saving the china for that special occasion. Stop withholding your love until that special person materialises. Every day you are alive is a special occasion. Every minute, every breath is a gift from God. Mary Manin Morrissey
This quote reminds me of a woman called Loretta Laroche. She calls herself a humour therapist & she certainly looks at the mundane things of life from a humorous point of view. I’ve heard her talking about this very thing – keeping your best china only for visitors, having to be careful when the room has just been cleaned for guests and keeping your party clothes for special occasions. In her case that was a particular pair of frilly party pants which she says she still has to this day, but of course they no longer fit her. These are all about with-holding as are the suggestions from Mary Morrissey in this quote. As she says, we don’t have time or our breath with-held.
What can happen as we do this? We may find it takes energy as we are going against the flow. We are resisting the natural giving. If we resisted taking the breath we are being given, we would die. As long as we live another year, we are all given 365 days. What are you going to do with yours that allows life to flow through you rather than kinking the hose with resistance? What could you do today that you have been putting off or resisting, that will encourage the flow of life to move through you, rather than being blocked and causing illness or unhappiness?
Enjoy feeling the satisfaction in your body when you “go with the flow!”
