Slowing the mind

The past week or more has seen my mind speed up, paranoia start and rational thinking go out of the window.   I have not fought with it as often that makes it worse.  It is easing now.  My sleep needs to get back on track, although this time of year I need a bit less anyway and it’s extremely hot too and it has been for the past month or two.   This morning I can see clearly again and my thinking is more rational and slower.  I’ve even managed to meditate and read for a while.  I am once again writing down goals in my little book.   Life is like a year and a year is like life.   We go through spring, summer, Autumn and winter.   Spring in life and the year sees life springing forwards and growth even though it starts slow. The planning for life and the year ahead gets underway.  Summer is the time of long balmy days and a relaxed attitude usually.  It’s a time when we feel there’s so much time left to do so many things.  We socialise, we feel alive and feel that nothing can stop us.   Autumn is the time when things gently, at first, allow down.  The energy starts to subtly subside.  We start reflecting on the past months and life albeit with rose tinted g,asses and still planning for the year and life ahead.  We have amazing focus.  It’s the time to start to reap the harvest and the rewards of work Putin earlier in the year and life.  Winter is the time of contraction and connection.  We connect with the most important elements of ourselves as daylight reaches its shortest levels just as in life we feel that time moves faster.  Being older and wiser gives us opportunity to reflect more and also time to slow things down that can often seem to just happen to us.  We can taken step back and look deeper into things.  We can adjust things more finely.  The most important things in life tend to shine through.  The bullshit often stops, if we let it, and we filter things better as we are wiser.  

It’s good to be able to mentally step back and look at things with different eyes.
