One morning I woke up and opened the shutters in front of the hotel window. A breathtaking view greeted me. What a beautiful sight and for a moment everything was quiet. The stillness that the view was presenting seemed to have entered me. A moment or two there was nothing more than just this beautiful picture and the stillness that filled my being. It felt wonderful.
Being above the clouds is not a necessity to feel this. On the contrary. I meet quite a number of people who seem to have a problem with really putting their feet down on the ground. With grounding as we call it. It seems like the challenges of life are too scary to do that and they would rather not be here to meet them.
But to meet the challenges of life you better put your feet firmly on the ground. Root firmly in this world, in this life. This will make it often so much easier but also more enjoyable and it will help you grow the trust, confidence and joy in life and yourself. This creates a wonderful feeling in you that lasts a lot longer than a moment or two.
