Do you ever just take a mind vacay and avoid responsibilities other than the required basics? Trust me, I have, do and did. On one level it’s not a positive as the larger goals are ignored (through one perspective) and on the flip it’s completely solid and rewarding. The reason is it allows room for daydreaming, mediation, new concepts and paradigms and the potential for creating new belief patterns. Beliefs are nothing more than thoughts that can be changed, altered, shifted and reinvented. The balance is one, not beating yourself up for not being outwardly proactive/productive, the second is acknowledging the acquisition of internal insights and self reflection, and three, knowing when it’s time to put it back into hyperdrive. A mind-vacation’s insightful exploration and self awareness will be the fuel of motivation, igniting the creative fires for future endeavors. It’s that simple.
In this over-producing world we forget the importance of initiating mind vacays. I’m not just talking physical vacations but literal mind vacays to allow freedom of expression to permeate the mind, to think beyond obligations, goals and objectives. It sparks the now, the present moment when we step out of the continual churning chaos of mental fatigue. It allows fun into our awareness. Of course this is not about over-indulgence, hedonism or wasted days, (that’s an entirely different trajectory creating all kinds of distortions and off-road pathways) instead it allows the creative universe to merge within our thoughts, our minds and emotions.
‘And that folks is a grand thing.
Here’s to summer indulgences of mind vacays, off-world travels and self explorations.
Cosmic sunshine to you.
