A bit of a story here...
It starts with Deepak and Oprah's 21-day meditation on "Losing the weight" - not just physical weight but the weighty responses to life. As I wrote in the last post, control issues are part of that weight for me. Then, a few days ago, Deepak suggested that we all think about the main goals/energies/focus for our lives as we imagine them to be in our dreams - his focused on transcendence. Mine are JOY - WONDER - LOVE - GROWTH
Today he continued the journey with a story about two men who show up for their flight at the airport - the flight is cancelled. One throws a fit and the other goes to the bookstore and gets engrossed in a new book. What struck out to me was his comment that at any given moment we can say - here is me .... (throwing a fit) and I have a choice to (read a book). I have taken it a step forward today and have been having great fun with -
Here is me enjoying wonder in the yellows of the daffodils. Here is me experiencing the wind on my cheek. Here is me experiencing a loving conversation with Tracesea.
So I send this energy out - what are you experiencing? Can I keep these for words and my experience of them as upper most in my mind? Yes of course - we all can.
