“Oh, where is the sea?”, the fishes cried, as they swam its crystal-clearness through.
Pause before speaking
As “back to the land” hippies in the sixties we kept milking goats. I remember resting my head on a warm goat while I sang to her, relaxing her into “letting her milk down”.x

Today I commit myself to walking around or ignoing my defaukt negaticity
With awe, respect,, love, prayer as a sister, daughter, mother friend and fellow seeker.
I am struck today at the increasing almost magnetic convergence of people, resources, solutions in my life that happens in direct proprotion to the amount i surrender to a greater wisdom
I have learned that my strengths of character are not earned, as the question said. They are given by grace. I have earned that grace through practicing patience and opening my heart ……..allowing grace the space to enter.
Acceptance, humor, peace
My favorite longings are the unnamed.
This longing, a type of deep wanting, aqis evidence of new spiritual space open to creativity and growth. A large “crack where the light gets in”. It invites me to examine what I may need that I have been unaware of. A time for introspection and discernment. A time of gratitude and care. Care to choose wisely.

Because nature abhors a vacuum I will not ignore the opportunity. Old patterns can easily fill the void if the opportunity is not treated with respect.
I experience serenity for short periods of time almost every day.
It seems to come after i’ve been working …. Either with spirit or things material.
The work is done for now, there is nothing more required of me for the moment; i have done.my part to the best of my ability and can now just BE … In appreciation of my connectedness.

There is always a feeling of warmth and inclusion…… a feeling of being carried by the warm, fluid stream of life, without effort, until asked to contribute again.
The patience and acceptance of the magnificent forest that surrounds me
Today i hope to be of service by hosting our Circulo de Diosas, women’s circle, connecting the women of our intentional community. We gather every full moon.
Humor and the ability to share space without talking.
With an open heart and clear gaze it is possible to mirror another’s beauty. If i can give this to at least one person today, they can pass it on.
12 Step fellowship groups in all their manifestations sustain me. I help them by giving back what I have received…. honest, humble sharing of my own exoerience, strength and hope.

A naughty cat?
I think cats are the only perfect creatures. Ask one, they’ll agree
I can regret causing pain even if that was the way the wind blew that day.
I do not have to beat myself up for being human.
Thank you, Sarah, for such honest intospection
Doreen, i feel your gratitude shining through. I started practicing mindful breathing to control physical pain which gave me present moment awareness. Such a gift.
