Black Belt in Inner Peace contains short journal entries I have kept and continue to add to, as I go for a black belt in inner peace by endeavoring to move through each busy and sometimes stressful day with greater grace and ease.
Number 18: Creating the day from a blank canvas
Today has been magical, all because I started this morning trying to imagine what it would be like to feel free of every limitation, simply by being open to everything and attached to nothing … most of which meant detaching from my hopes of success and fears of failure. As I imagined this freer mindset, suddenly the day became like an enormous blank canvas on which I was invited to paint a masterpiece. Every hour since then I have taken a few minutes to accept this invitation and all day it has lit me up with creativity and made me happy.
