Take A Momement

LAZINESS: Many would say, “Oh I am not lazy, I am very busy.” And yes, that may be true….many of us are very busy doing everything we can to avoid the inner darkness within that we need to transform so we can claim our LIGHT. We are busy doing what the ego wants us to do, or even what other people want us to do – but we are LAZY when it comes to our spiritual practices, the disillusionment of our egos and the awakening of our divine consciousness. Raising Your Consciousness

What are we busy doing? Or maybe what are we being lazy about?

I asked myself that question today and got still to listen for the answer.

I am busy avoiding my feelings. Yes I am.

I excuse it away with talk such as "I am good" or "God's will be done" or "When it's time" or "It's not my fault" or "This is not for me" All of which are hog wash really, they are lazy excuses to not deal with the issues or to procrastinate dealing. 

What happens with that approach is that the issues drag on and, in my case, my health gets affected. 

Getting to the moment of action is a start. 

A moment of silence can sometimes be action.

A moment of taking responsibility is taking action.

A moment of prayer is taking action.

Whatever it is, take a moment to transcend the lazy or busyness

It will definitely come in handy and serve you well
