A little lady beetle crawled across the sidewalk in front of me. I bent over and watched this determined creature scamper across to the grass. I did wonder, why not fly if you have that ability. I would.
I began to think of everything I could see way above all else. Soon, I transformed my beetle into Eagle soaring on the air currents over the city, over the mountains and beyond. What a thrill!
But what did I miss at this great height? I asked myself and as quickly, the answer came…simple things. I could not see the cracks in the sidewalk, see the struggle of the wild plant determined to live.
We miss so much by not stopping, catching our breath and being still. As in Circles, Mouse sees what others cannot, will not by just using is his eyes, but his senses. He sees with his inner eyes things others miss. He feels with his mind.
The next time you pass by a plant, animal or person do not pass by in a rush. Take a single moment out you life and observe, or smile. A singe thought or smile will go deep within and if you give it just a second of your time it just may blossom into something wonderful.
