Levels of Comfort

(My legs on my bed, getting comfortable!)

 

Last weekend, I had the most comfortable weekend I have had in a long time.

I took time to meditate and clean my house.

I took time to read and conduct a tarot reading for another.

I took time to spend with one of my oldest friends, and wander around my not so new city. (I have lived here before a few years ago)

I took time to cook for myself, be cooked for and eat the most delicious gluten-free chocolate cookies I have ever had.

There is nothing I like more than being comfortable. 

When you feel safe and secure and like all is right in the world.

I feel this way the most when I am at home, in my own space with all of my crystals nearby and my most comfy clothes on.

When all my chores are done and I have just come out of a shower or bath.

Last year I did a series of posts on my Facebook and Twitter pages about slowing down on the run up to Christmas.

This year I am slowing down so much that I haven’t even got the inclination to write the posts about it!

I am looking forward to Christmastime in a way I have not for the longest time.

I am looking forward to just being at peace for a few days, nowhere to go and no where to be, except with my family.

Nowhere to go, nowhere to be. 

That phrase is my favourite meditation phrase.

The retreat centre I most often go to, often start off their guided meditations with these few words and they are like honey in mint tea for me – they soothe.

I should have been retreating this Christmastime, on a 10 day Vipassana retreat, however plans changed and I will now be at home with my family.

I will still take those words into account everyday of my holiday.

Nowhere to go, nowhere to be. 

Sometimes I add another part to the phrase:

No one to be.

 We get so accustomed to playing a role that we forget to just be who we are in all that softness and vulnerability.

It’s hard to be soft and vulnerable when you’ve got to go to work, be a manager and interact with a whole variety of different people daily.

Christmastime, or any holiday where you are able to shut off those more practical parts of yourself for a while, can be deeply fulfilling and rewarding for the soul. For who you really are.

That is the ultimate in comfort.

Much love Txx
