Emerging from the Silent Cocoon

Sometimes the world gets too noisy. Too scheduled. Too focused on things that simply do not matter in the long run.

In the last couple months of last year, I began to realize I was focused more on what I “should do” instead of what I was called to do.

I needed a reset. Without really understanding what I was doing, I:

  • Took a break from social media.
  • Cleaned closets.
  • Stopped writing blogs or sending emails because I “should.”
  • “Unsubscribed” from email lists that no longer interested me.
  • Left a couple online groups where I felt my participation was complete.

And

  • Created more quiet time.
  • Made more physical space in my environment.
  • Took more walks in nature.
  • Experienced profound meditations.
  • Spent time journaling.
  • Connected even more deeply with the Be Love Principles.

 While I still took care of my family and business, I realize now that I had created a silent cocoon where I began to think more clearly about…everything.

I feel happier, healthier, and more on purpose than at any other time in my life.

I can see my cocoon time has shifted the way I approach my business and how I spend my free time. I’m no longer thinking “I should do this, but I don’t want to” to now more often “I’m so grateful I get to do this!”

A turning point was when I re-read a line from the last chapter of A Course in Miracles, “You always choose between your weakness and the strength of Christ in you.”

That’s what matters to me now. Choosing day by day, moment by moment, to live as best I can from the strength of Christ inside me.

What matters most to you? I encourage you to create the silence and space to find out.
