Sea Nettles make me happy

Meditation

Sometimes when I experience someone breaking out in amazing way it can make me question everything I’ve done with my life. I focus intently on past actions that I consider mistakes – or that did not have the desired outcome  –   disappointments and failures large and small.

Today I meditated on radical and complete acceptance of where I am, and gratitude for everything that I have accomplished, for the love that I have received and the distance I have traveled toward the life that I envision for myself.

The mind has the ability to generate healing to the deepest level of injury. For every sorrow there is a comfort. For every disappointment there can be an understanding. Breathing in and out for an extended period of time, the mind calms, like floating on a warm ocean under a gentle sky. Clear light fills my consciousness and a dialogue with the universe begins where the past is a prologue to the present, clearly necessary, full of triumphs if I wish to take a look;  and the future is an open river flowing powerfully to the sea.

Let’s hug it out

That was a t-shirt I saw today that made me laugh.

Yesterday I did paperwork. Surprisingly paperwork can make you happy. I cleared almost all the papers off my copy machine.  Then I balanced my checkbook. Hooray, there was some money there! Having confirmed that I was not on the verge of economic catastrophe I ordered 3 books that I’ve been wanting. The trilogy on Martin Luther King Jr. by Taylor Branch. I ordered from Powell’s (a real book store) instead of being lazy and ordering from Amazon. That made me feel good, and I was rewarded by getting all 3 books including fast shipping for around $40. Life is good.

Also we are going to London, so if you know any cool, beautiful or fun places to go there, please post them in the comments!
