It teaches me about longing. I am with Howie: sometimes it comes as a surprise, not knowing that I wanted what someone else has. It’s one more breadcrumb I can follow to find my way back home. It’s also an opportunity to be compassionate with myself and take one small step forward.
Thank you, Serafina and everyone on gratefulness.org, from my heart 🙏❤️
Alicia! I hadn’t noticed the coincidence. Thank you, so beautiful, my heart is melted too. Love and blessings ❤️🙏
Drew, what a great picture, the place and the community look wonderful. I also spotted you! 😃💕
Haha Mica 😂 I am so thrilled and touched, thank you for your message! I also kept thinking about Br David’s teachings while reading the book because Jill Bolte talks about the relationship between the 4th character and gratefulness, which seemes to be the key for connecting to the divine. And isn’t it empowering to know that we have a choice (anatomically) on how we respond? Sending a hug 🤗
Wow “You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves” I never noticed this phrase, so incredibly beautiful… thanks, Mike
Dear Mica, I hadn’t been in the Lounge and only saw your message now, thank you. I didn’t read My Stroke of Insight, I got the kindle of Whole Brain Living and that’s where I saw the name Queen Toad. It is fun and fascinating!
Hi Julia, thank you for being here 🌸
Holly, this is amazing, your pictures look so lush, it’s inspiring to think that this was depleted land not long ago… I was on the question of the day and came here to see her, my first though was Queen Toad because I read a book by Jill Bolte where she tells how she gave this name to the right part of her brain, the one that can connect us with the all encompassing universe.
I love it, thank you, Mike… and the little person with the arms up, my daughter draws them like that too…
This is lovely, dear Ose. I think that this is our natural state and that, by doing the exercise you mention, we just remember it. I am grateful for everyone too.
How beautiful, dear Mica
Hello Holly and everyone, I had mentioned this tree on the question of the day: the tree with the log steps. This is how it looks like at the moment in Johannesburg: brown after the dry winter. Normally the rains should start any time now and then the landscape should turn green again.
Hi Mrudavi, this site has helped me so much, I hope it will be the same for you. Thank you for being here.
Well done, Holly, one more step. It sounds to me like whatever the outcome, there will be improvements to the house.
When my daughter has a meltdown (rarely), her face becomes red spotted. I am glad you gave yourself some TLC 🙂
So good to hear, Mike
I am now keeping it too ❤️🌈
Thank you, dear Alicia. I am thinking of you on this prayer Tuesday. We are grateful for you. All will be well
So true, Holly… I am now working in the middle of the night and he is right next to me, giving me company and comfort..
