“Oh, where is the sea?”, the fishes cried, as they swam its crystal-clearness through.
We’re about to start our monthly Women’s Circle, always on the Full Moon. There will be plenty of opportunities. Now that I can no longer walk, it’s the anonymous acts of kindness that have become difficult. I almost always have to ask for an accomplice and so my ego, once again, engages.
Oh, where is the sea?
the fishes cried
As they swam its crystal clearness through.
Perched high in a bowl shaped wooded valley, I look down to the river below and up to the summits above where the sun, as it rises behind me, gradually lights slopes from west to east.
Time becomes meaningless, colors intensify, a joyful stirring of excitement is felt in my belly. The tasks’ connection to ALL energy becomes clear.
Joy takes place in present moment. Judgement, or criticism cannot live in present moment because it compares more than one moment.
I aim for the strongest current in the river of creativity, avoiding the weeds and shadows, confident that love will protect me from harm even though i have surrendered all control.
I still do combat with my default to the negative.
“I’ve had a lot of worries in my life, most of which never happened”…. Mark Twain
To answer both of todqy’s questions I can match my breathing pattern to whom i am listening, both honoring them, and focusing my attention.
Courage. Fear was not used as the primary teaching tool in my childhood, so I am able to avoid the crippling automatic reaction of fear when faced with new situations.
The wording of this question implies i am the conductor of today’s symphony, instead of a humble note in the magnificent music.
All will be well.
I’m nearing the end of life. I’d love to have my resources extend just to the end of my time here. A friend agreed this week to give me the value of my house now, in cash, but allow me to stay here until I pass on. Such a sweet gift. It gives me a sense of security in my nest and saves me from burdening anyone with inherited wealth. I may distribute gifts now, while i’m still here and see the angels in my life put them to good use.
I try to listen without responding with either judgement or advice.
Humility compassion reductio of suffering, accepting all manifestations of creation… even the dark side…as sacred.
California has changed! When i first visited there in the late 1960s cars would come to a screeching halt whenever a pedestrian stepped off the curb!!
When in doubt this always helps
I so understand being forced to stillness. Who knew it contained so many gifts?
Every day brings joy despite my limitations
I was born in Chicago and I send that will to live up to the sufferijg nephew.
