Why Reflection Time is Vital Time!

“I went into the woods because I wanted to live deliberately….I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life…to put to rout all that was not life…and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        -Henry David Thoreau

Hi everyone! This is Greg, coming to you with the, Message From the Road. I thought I would give you a few minutes to enjoy this beautiful area and it’s silence. It’s truly a magical place to visit.

The question I’d like to ask you is, “Are you taking time out of your day? Are you taking time out of your life to find the silence? Are you taking the time to sit and reflect on what’s going on in your life right now?

We are living in self inflicted times of busyness and we need to take the time to reflect and to think about where we are going, where we’ve been, what our reason for being here is. What is our purpose in life?

I get so inspired when I get out in nature like this.

This has been an intentional trip that I planned after a busy week of working. I wanted to  drive down Pacific Coast Highway and stop off here in the Big Sur area. Let’s just stop and listen for a minute, what do you hear?

Now isn’t that (silence) spectacular? Imagine being able to just go out and enjoy Mother Nature, and to enjoy all of God’s blessings that He’s given us. We have that opportunity, we just need to take the time and plan it.

We have this daily life that we get to live, and we should start planning into our day, into our week or into our year different times when we need to take a break and seek that classroom of silence as Matthew Kelly likes to call it, and find the inner you, your inner peace.

Spend some time with just you, thinking, reflecting and trying to determine where you’re going with the rest of your life.

So make today a masterpiece, enjoy nature, intentionally find times in your day and in your life when you’re going to shut down.

Keep on growing, keep on learning and keep on leading. So until next time this is Greg Drolet.

Ponder this Question: When are you going to intentionally take the time to sit quietly and listen to the messages that are knocking at the door of your mind?
