I am so grateful for time to reflect.
Everyone I know is so grateful for time to reflect.
Everyone I don’t even know all over the planet is so grateful for time to reflect.
With time to reflect, I can feel what is important to me.
I am not just pushed around by my surroundings and the opinions of other people.
I can feel the deep peace and listen for what is truly mine.
I can feel the presence of guidance and the quiet urge to take the first and then the next steps.
I see the reassurance of billions of leaves on thousands of trees and see how each leaf gets its maximum good exposure to the sun, turning itself.
It fulfills its role to create oxygen and to serve one of its many purposes on the earth.
I, too, have the reassurance of turning myself to the Source of all good ideas, and I, too, can follow my inner guidance to fulfill my purpose on the earth.
I notice how the leaves do not create movement for themselves.
They move at the urging of the wind, and the swaying of their tree.
Sometimes they move a lot, sometimes only a little, sometimes not at all.
They continue fulfilling their role, nonetheless.
I, too, sometimes act, sometimes, listen, sometimes meditate.
I am fulfilling my role.
Reflection lets me know this.
Quiet assurance gives me the only security I need.
