Mixing together these two challenging questions, I can open myself to the magnificence of my true nature by letting go my curiosity about life, humanity, relationships, awe, pain, daily events, friendship, and GOD, above all.
Not give in to gossip.
Here where I live, Spring is starting with such a dry weather, grass is greening but not so much, and flowers are blossoming, but they don’t brighten up. They need water, they need something so simple and powerful, at the same time so transcendent…
Me too, I need an extra love, a love I can find inside my soul, but only bowing in front of a transcendent one, like the Samaritan woman by the well.
Thank you Pilgrim, there are no other words!
Yes Antoinette you are right where you are. You are worthy of love.
Ok Ursula! I try to slow down!
Here the weather is grey, and I too feel cold, I wear my wool pulls. Spring time often changes. In Italy we say “Marzo pazzerello!” which means “crazy March”
Congratulations Kevin, my curiosity is actually taking me to visit your website next days, and follow your work! Good luck!
A nice story, Hope 16, very nice. You are right, often in our workplaces hierarchy prevails over humanity. This is what I experience, too. Maybe we should look at the world with the eyes of people in front of us, and try to see from that point of view, even in the case of our boss. I admire what you did.
Thank you Gina for posting this quote of Proust.
Ursula, how are you today? I hope you feel better. These are busy days for me, so I can’t be here with all my energy…but as Diane say, this community is a sacred place, to rest, to receive support, and people who replied are a gift, not only for you, but for everyone here.
The sincere wisdom and lovely kindness I find in the posts below are so uplifting for me too. Ursula, “baby steps” is what I have repeated to myself for a long time. Now it is going better, I got an extra patience, and you too can get this, even better than me, for your strength during your illness. Lot of love.
Ursula, dear friend, today I had no time, now is midnight…i want to reassure you of my prayers, of my thoughts, and of my friendship.
I think that our wonderful friends here have replied with right and appropriate words. Listen to their advice Ursula. Take care, be sure that you can. You are wonderful. Love. Tomorrow I will reply in a bettr way, Ursula, now, i’m going to bed, but holding you in my prayer.
Oh wonderful Cintia! Where is this place? You have an artistic flair for photography!
Dear Cintia!!! I am happy that you enjoyed s holiday time in stunning places like those of your photos!!! They even speak about the grace of your soul!
Fraternal love, and obrigada for your insights.
Yes Diane, imagine if we could see!!!! It could be amazing!
We are HERE!!!💜
It is so easy to forget gratitude, you’re right Jon. But as you and others posted in Daily question, we have the possibility to chose it, instead of angry, rudeness, or deep and unhealing sadness. Let us start! Just below, I replied to Mary and told her that my day has been hard, busy, full of people with a lot of claims…yet, when I came back to my home, and opened the door, my sweet home filled my heart with gratefulness. It is a little thing, but it fuels my heart! Hi Jon, happy to see you again!
Dear Mary, I’m reading your post after a hard day…, but it is comforting, and even relaxing when I read the posts of people here, that find gratitude in their painful moments.
So, your post is inspiring for me, today, and also “all shall be well, and all matter if things shall be well” by Julian of Norwich, in Aline’s reminder!
A big hug Mary!
Dear Aine, you are here! So happy to see your icon, and to know that you and your husband are on a healing path. So happy for the reminder of Julian of Norwich!
Bye Aine,, a big hug!
Oh, Manda, you too….
Dear friend, I will miss you so much, you are a source of inspiration in my days, as I have already said, when I’m driving to my work I often find myself thinking of the wonderful words you could have written about the landscape and the people I see. As Pilgrim says, your purity of heart is contagious Manda, I am sad. I feel like Mary, I need time to process it.
But yours is surely the right decision.
A big hug, big big Manda, don’t disappear at all.🌺💜🌻
