Oh my, I've finally achieved it. I am not sure it is something that our culture values a lot, and I think in many ways we're mixed about it, but it is lovely to be able to just sit and not feel you have to do something. To just sit and listen to the birds or look at a beautiful view. I get caught up and start feeling that I should be making use of my time (how protestant is that!) So if I - oddly - have nothing to do I should read, or paint or listen to a podcast...something!
And this is good, striving to improve is important, but it is also important to sometimes just be, to just hang out and not do much of anything, and we have finally gotten to a place where I can do that for a while. There is nothing I have to strive for or organize, and it is lovely.
I've been making short audio files of what I am hearing and it is a marvelous way to just be.
Here are links to three audio files, I hope this works.
