In yoga class yesterday our teacher Brian spoke about his favorite mindfulness visualization.
I forgot the name of the person to give the original credit and am too lazy to google before coffee but here goes...
He spoke about how our thoughts are a constant waterfall...coming and going and unable to stop.
But, if you look closely, right behind the waterfall, there is an empty space, a place that just exists....calm and just letting all come and go if you can get yourself to that place behind the waterfall...
I also loved the idea of visualizing all of our thoughts as a beautiful waterfall.
It reminded me that even in the most challenging and frustrating of moments, they usually always pass.
And that we may have one thing we are getting stuck on, however, we are still surrounded by lots of beautiful.
