It is funny these things we use called words. Last night I started a post with a sentence containing the word “evening”. As I was looking at the word when I typed it, in my minds eye something interesting happened:
even – ing
The letters split.
(Woo Woo alert 🙂 )
Is there a secret code gifted from the universe, embedded in the very words we use to describe our reality…put there specifically to help remind us? Can turning certain words into the lived action they describe help us live happier and more peace filled lives?
Much has been said about creating ones day* (will also link video in comments) in the beginning minutes of awakening in the morning, but what about ending the day? Is there a similar power available in the evening to close the loop on what was created?
Even-ing in the evening. Hum…? Definitely something to think about formalizing in the life flow.
Even-ing. What a powerful way to end the day!
To sit purposefully and honor that day’s creations with the sinking of the sun, using observation and review aimed at an even-ing out of that day’s living. It is to tend to the ending of the day as we wrap the events around us with understanding, acknowledgment and gratitude for what has been as they slip quietly into what is now our past. What a wonderful little place in the flow of our day to day living of life for time focused on wisdom generation! Because what is wisdom if not knowledge of what is true or right coupled with just judgment as it is used and gained in actions lived!
formal linking of past present and future!
So it is even-ing a as nice little evening ritual and “spiritual” practice…
…to sit with a cup of tea and to be present with the events of the day in memory looked at past the events of the day themselves, but with a focus specifically for their deeper meanings. It is to do some mental even-ing out in the mind for the part of the journey now already traveled.
What a precious way to address an ending linked to the clock when we reach the little bit of time in what remains of the day and find wisdom waiting.
