As a peaceful warrior, I would choose when, where and how I would behave.
With that commitment, I began to live the life of a warrior.

Observant And Aware

Today you may be feeling observant. As you find yourself paying close attention to your surroundings, you may feel connected and aware. You could feel that you’ve tapped into the flow of energy around you, which could give you a sense of alertness. When we realize that we are one and connected with everything around us, we may feel a surge of recognition and the joy of celebration all at once. We may notice scents that we hadn’t before, and feel the breeze with every inch of exposed skin. You may see life around you that had gone unnoticed—the birds, insects, and subtle movement of the plants—all in harmony with the sun and the air and the earth. You can carry this awareness to the people around you, whether you know them or not, and sense their energy as well. Today by consciously observing the fullness of life around you, you connect to its constant flow of energy which enlivens you.

Sometimes we get so involved in our thoughts that the world goes by us unseen and unheard. We may not pay any attention to the rhythm of life around us until the sun catches us, suddenly blinding us, or the breeze scatters our papers and blows our hair in our faces. We can take this as the universe bringing us back to the present and the reality of life. Today your observance reminds you that you are part of a wide world and not alone, but connected.

Eyes and heart open! ~j
