    I’ll get out for a walk. Doesn’t come closer to embodiment than that. Triggers more than one value: spiritual (a connection with nature) and a healthy functioning being {putting one leg in front of the other for a while).

    Being more aware of those times when I am called upon to be someone else’s angel on earth. I have received blessings from other angels. I want to also be a blessing to others.

    I had to put down my beloved cat today. He would have been 15 next month. This was such a hard decision to make. Deeply held values for me is that our pets are family. I loved him so much and will miss him everyday. My Beans is over the Rainbow Bridge and I hope we meet again.

      His soul will still speak to you, Michele.
      I will light a candle for My Beans tonight, and set it in my back yard.

      I know dear Michele, your dear, dear friend is gone. I feel so sorry for you. A cat can be the soul of a house. The warmth he took with him will come back. A hug from me to you. 💛

    Clean, declutter, pay attention to the atmosphere around my living space. Probably crank up that knob with the + sign while I am doing it…

    I plan to employ more deep listening when interacting with others today. by not trying to solve problems , rather just open my heart and mind to what is being said.

    Being kind, including to myself. I am often my worst critic. Today I won’t treat myself with food (which is often my go-to treat), or pleasure purchases, but with kind words regarding myself.

    Being in, and loving the natural world around me. I want to take advantage of being in New Hampshire one more day. Walk outside, hike, and drink in the trees, birds, and earth.

    Yesterday I canoed on Lake Winnisquam with my friend. We saw a bald eagle nest and two eaglets. A delight and privilege.

    My focus today is on “letting go.” I don’t want to fight. I don’t want to flee. I don’t want to freeze. I want to be the peace I seek here and now. I value knowing over knowledge, experience over man-made dogma. I know that my tense body makes it difficult to embody peace. Today’s question asks me to explain how I can be that peace. Today and hopefully every day, I will be mindful of my thoughts and feelings. I will use the mantra, “Relax and Release.” I will remember to act not react, to forgive my self and others when we fail to do so. The decision to forgive does not mean that I totally “let go.” It does mean that I’m willing and that allows grace to flow. It reminds me of the song, “Peace is Flowing like a River.” I want peace to flow in and through me. Pilgrim shared the verse of a Gary Ault hymn on this site a couple of days ago. I found it very helpful because it reminded me that my heart is both frightened and free and that is okay. I share it again here:
    All that we have, and all that we offer,
    Comes from our heart both frightened and free.
    Take what we bring now and give what we need,
    All done in His Name.

    I’ve been procrastinating writing more thank-you-for-support notes with the loss of my brother. These are friends who took time & reached out in ways they could during this pandemic. I am grateful for their kindness & respect the friendships we have. I will take action & acknowledged them as best as I can. Writing a few notes is a start. Continuing to respect this grief process also validates how deeply I loved Geoff & those who accompany me.
