The way of wellness is a pathway that we all seek in life. We all seek to be well. Wellness provides us with the ability to live a life that is full of connection and joy. We know when our health is great, we are able to cope better with life, move more in life and enjoy every moment of life.
There is nothing that wellness doesn't bring to our journey. Wellness within our body we find we are able to 'keep up' in life, that we can explore and be curious about life, to travel or go on adventures. We can experience more with family and friends and we can feel great at the end of the day.
Wellness within our mind comes as clarity. It comes as calm, and in this it is felt as a stress free, happy space, but not without knowing the highs and lows of life, but able to move through them. It holds a positive outlook and it holds a future. When we are working from a well mind, we are allowing ourselves to step out of anxiety and depression, to remove ourselves from old patterns and beliefs and to journey towards greater calm. This is perhaps an aspect of wellness that leads the others.
Wellness within our soul is felt. It is the ability to feel. To not just feel, but to accept feeling and to allow ourselves to rise from them. It is about conscious connection. Stepping out of mind and body and being able to find silence and emptiness that we are willing to sit within. It is the want to then reconnect at a deeper level to all that is around and be willing to honour who we are within it.
The act of wellness is so many levels within us, and it is the balance that we seek day to day. The foundation of this, is in our connection to it. When we are willing to connect to our body and mind and soul and to reach out and connect to everyone around us. To bring our truth to the table to dine with everyone. To be seen and experienced with an open heart and soul. With a willing heart and soul.
It is in this that I have come to know the great importance that is connection to life. The celebration of life. The immense and profound depth we find in being together - in uniting - in rejoicing - in celebrating. That in conversation we discover pieces of ourselves within each other and we expose more of ourselves. We uncover and unlock sides of who we are and bring that to the joy of connection.
We need connection in our wellness. For it is in BEING that we really live. Our own wellness journey unites with our wellBEING so that we can merge into a collective. So that we can come together again as a whole.
This is perhaps the greatest link to wellness, and why I come to you from this space, of culture and connection, to unite.
