Renewal or over again # 4

I have been working as a fitness trainer for many years. I meet people every day and see how they fight every day, whether to go to training or not to go. It does not depend only on desires, enthusiasm, finances, but also on the permanent feeling that it is necessary to do some tasks at work and at home. And even if they are on training, they are only physically on it. So where are they really? Can they truly enjoy the fitness exercises? I wonder if we give ourselves time for our renewal in any space of life, that will give us the energy and strength to undertake daily routines? I think it is easier for us to get ourselves new responsibilities. Although it leads us to growing fatigue, nervousness, irritability. Maybe we do not even notice it, because we do not have time to look inside ourselves, see what is in us, what we feel, what we want. We behave similarly in relationships with others. We can’t stop talking to each other. Can we still be present and open to another person? Can we listen to what he/ she wants to say? Maybe the other person just wants to sit down with us. Our spiritual life looks the same. We go to prayer (this is an unfortunate word, because prayer is our lifetime, but here I mean a special time to meet God) and we talk all the time. One prayer, the other, one request chasing the other request. We talk endlessly. So how do we try to know our God? Is it possible to be in a relationship with someone we do not know? Do we give our God a chance to comment, to respond? He speaks in silence. First, let’s create a special place for God inside us, near our hearts to make possible to meet with Him. Let us learn to listen to Him and to hear. Let us bring sight of ourselves on God. Regardless of whether we call it as a meditation / contemplation, it will be the time that will renew each of us.

Consider what your renewal is in every living space. Which activities, also your forms of prayer are consistent with your lifestyle, which give you joy, peace and lead you to greater Good? What do you want to do with it?

Maybe it’s worth to start something new for your renewal…. 🙂
