Feeling my wealth. I am rich beyond belief. Not by the standards of a society based on a belief that how much money you have determines our value, of course. But I am indeed wealthy. I have so much. I FEEL like I am as financially wealthy as the richest person in the world. I feel beautiful. When I quiet myself I feel calm and peaceful. I am learning to recognize states of feeling. Calm vs. frazzled. Each has a its own energy and I am learning to recognize when I am frazzled and to consciously calm myself. It takes practice. So feeling like the richest person in the world is rather strange. I must get used to it.
That I am still discovering and unfolding my feelings about the pandemic and climate change. Finding my footing in feeling how to pull it altogether so that it feels like I am present. Meditating everyday to lessen the worry and do some things like planting lots of native plants for the bees and birds. Working in groups taking care of the homeless situation by providing small houses. Looking anew at all my relationships to improve the listening and loving part of connecting with now even more cherished friends and family. Everything changes, I am learning how to surrender to that truth and move from there to just love and not anxiety or worry. Acceptance so live if fuller. Staying in nature even more.
I have been going to water aerobics classes daily for two months. I realized during Covid times that I am arthritic— I wasn’t and then suddenly I am filled with aches. So into water and feeling some better. I am proud of myself for doing something about it besides suffer and complain!
I’m learning that being vulnerable is not the end of the world. It’s actually freeing and allows you to learn humility
I’m turning 40 this year. I’ve been practicing saying what I want in the future in the present tense rather than future tense. I don’t have a kid yet. But instead of saying I will be a father, I’ve been saying I am a father. Then visualizing myself with my family. Really feeling into the experience of fatherhood. Having the necessary conversations with my partner about adoption. Speaking my daughter’s name into existence. It’s been an amazing evolution of feeling and confidence and faith. I’m excited.
Acceptance of unconditional love; oh so rare and oh so grateful to have discovered.
There is no limit to the discoveries.
That there is no findable self !
It is harder than ever for me, since retirement, to create structured moments for practice in my life right now!
Why would that be ? Don’t you get to do almost whatever you want when your retired?
I’m mellowing out — slowing down.
This is a bit off the topic, but I live in the Pacific Northwest and we are currently having the heat wave from hell! I am deeply, deeply grateful for our air conditioning, something I have taken for granted in the past. Coming into a cool house is an incredible sense of relief from the current 112 degree temperature (and rising) we have today.
I live in the Portland area — we hit 114 yesterday — already 101 at noon today.
I’m gaining more and more discipline with my meditation.
Right now, I am experiencing a hope that has been missing for awhile. I really do feel some genuine hope right now that a situation in my life is getting better and that liberation will be here before I know it!
Hi Hot Sauce! I’m happy for you. Thank you for sharing hope .
I was diagnosed with autism last year at age 59. This has given me a new filter to better understand life, myself, and relationships with others.
complete vulnerability when fully open to change and both the sweetness it brings and courage necessary to prevent shutting it down
