There are no more “should” bees in my world. See they used to hover like this one, intently gazing into my essence, asking me if I wanted him to stay. Lovingly and politely I offered him the chance to explore on his own, to visit someone else if he was invited elsewhere. I no longer felt the need to have him frequent my company. Excitedly, eagerly, I waved goodbye as he disappeared around the bend. Though I was happy to see him move on, I was also in gratitude for his time with me. He taught me through the experience of “should be’s” that I excluded my awareness to what is right now, what is present here right now. If I am should be-ing, then I am perceiving what IS happening as not perfect, wishing it were different. Yet change cannot come about from this space. Tis the space of surrender into these raindrops coming down upon my skin and allowing the moisture to soak in that allows for my skin to be hydrated. I see it now. Here is an invitation for you today, recognize if you have any “should” bees hovering around you and release them if it resonates with you. What a liberating feeling!
