The Illuminati is out of reach of the government and is global dominance of the material realm?
What new adventure is in store? How will my garden grow into its true sanctuary? Will I lose any dear family this year?
A question arising for me , “Is why did I chose the path less traveled?” It particularly hit home for me on Mother’s Day. Early on in my relationship I chose to be my husband’s patron and that was quite all consuming mostly positive. We had quite a roll reversal in a conventional way for that time. I have been wondering why I chose that road. In a way, I bore his music and he left me that legacy.
When will this pandemic end? When will a life of normalcy return? These questions are coming up more frequently as the time goes by. Yes there is a glimmer of hope, hope to physically be able to visit friends, hug them and especially continue on with the usual world travel. At the same time, I realize that when things will be back is out of my hands, that I have no direct control on things and that masks and vaccinations will become the new norm for a while. It’s difficult but I try to concentrate on the positive things that I have and being alive as being a blessing..
Gratefully to serve Love always and to stay open to the flow of life. There is this deep longing to reunite. Will doors open to it? Inside – yes, it is on its way. Faith and trust that all will be well, too.
What can I build into my life that will be a wonderful legacy and takeaway?
Because of COVID, stranded in Australia, longing to be elsewhere and productive again, I seek what I can do, be, build into my health habits, both mental and physical, that will see me and others better for this time, not worse. People I rarely see, things I don’t normally get to do or use when volunteering in developing countries overseas. I want to look back with fondness, not only relief that I survived it. SO, how do I make all of that a reality? Asked as a gauge regularly.
You gave us a beautiful example of how to ask a question to draw out a positive, helpful, answer. Thank you, Dusty Su!
Aww, thank you Holly. Very kind.
Being at an age
when I can no longer deny I’m getting older,
has opened the door for many questions
that I have to face honestly . . .
when I was younger
I ‘got away’ with some very unfortunate behaviors and decisions,
but it matters more than ever
that I not neglect my physical health,
my mental health,
and my spiritual health . . .
what I do
counts more than ever.
what I do
counts more than ever
all experiences in my past
which have taught me so much
the good choices
and poor choices
both give much wisdom
and give me rich and fertile ground
in which to grow
my physical health,
my mental health,
and my spiritual health
that will now flourish
more than ever.
How can I become more connected with myself and finding solitude without feeling guilty or the fear of disappointing people? This has been more prevalent in the last week. I love to connect with people but sometimes I crave solitude a lot but then fear that if I dont give enough time to others I would lose that connection. So I often neglect myself and people please.
The question around what is really important for me right now. The value of the question of course depends on the level of honesty in answering. So, it has (and is) about really stripping everything back to the core truth. After all, if I can’t have clarity around being absolutely honest and laid bare with myself, then it all becomes pretty meaningless and pointless.
Where will the pandemic of Covid-19 recovery unfold for the world? Will we be able to travel, give hugs and live like before? As humans will be help other countries with vaccines and support? When will we feel safe again for all humans on this Earth?
Will i survive?
What comes next?
I think these are elephant in the room questions. Everytime i’m at a meeting it’s like these questions are carefully hidden behind what people choose to talk about.
I’ve had to gradually embrace certain aspects of my life. It’s been about what comes to me gradually.
I’ve been struggling for a while to face the question of whether I should remain in my current relationship. The answer that came to me is ‘no’. I’m feeling sad and a bit numb inside, but also that this weight has been lifted off of me.
I have very similar feelings about aging. So I grieved the lost of my youth over the weekend and setting my intentions to connect, be presence, exercise and eat healthy. But, feeling that It’s much easier to focus on the external and that I need to do more on the internal, spiritual being. So many emotions of that I’am not doing enough. And, not repairing relationships.
That’s a heavy one, dear Lauryn –
Right now to just do the best I can with this day. This year? To trust in the journey day by day and do my best with what I have.
Me too my friend. I like this.
The last year has seen much change in my household. My middle child, now 21, moved into an apartment around the corner. My youngest son went to college, so my husband and I are now empty-nesters and it is a new chapter in our lives. All our kids are adults now, so we are all shifting a bit as we treat them like adults… that is working well. Covid Year was a big BURP in my new career of sustainable agriculture, and for the first time, I had no income from a job, which was both good and bad, I must say. So my big questions are:
What’s NEXT? (I have begun downsizing, rearranging, renovating our big home… is selling it in the future for a smaller home? When? What do we want as we age? When should the changes come? What is the longer vision down the road, so I can make better choices now?)
Now that I have some time for myself what can I do FOR myself? (I think I need to work on my health and fitness, which I deferred when I was so busy with family life).
Do I get part-time work for a while to replenish our savings, or throw myself into full-time market farming and spend a bit more to get a business started?
How can I get to carbon neutral or better as quickly as possible, as wild weather is clearly here, and going to be getting worse? I am concerned we are as a world, shifting too slowly to prevent tragedies.
As usual, I think practically first, spiritually second…. or at least it appears that way. I recognize the interplay with spirit and the way we live, and what is in life and spirit. But I have a BIG PICTURE, always, and values and vision guide me in my practical choices. Love guides me, for one. Our family is now physically apart, and yet we seem to be growing closer. I think that a big success. We have good communication these days. I’ve returned to daily meditation – at last – after a very long absence. Clearing out stuff from the house shows me I’m at a new level of non-attachment, and feeling more secure. Covid-Year did it… go figure! Lol. I feel more grateful than ever before, again, Covid helped me realize this. I think overall, I’m heading in the right direction, that I have in mind what is important (love, gratitude, sustainability, humanity, happiness, physical and mental health, etc.) it is just the details that need working out as situations change.
That was a good question today. It brought everything to the foreground for me to “think out loud” and sum up what has been running in the background of my mind. It let me put it together into a cohesive whole. At the end of my life what will matter? The love I gave and encouraged in others. What I did for sustainability and carbon neutrality (as that may actually help save lives and life in the natural world). The labor of my hands that helped make something, restore something, feed someone, and what I was able to give to others. And the moments of life I was able to enjoy for myself, with gratitude.
” think practically first, spiritually second” – I’ll ‘second’ that, Holly in Ohio. I’m reminded of people traveling to an ashram who discarded their glasses because they wouldn’t need them at the ashram. [Or maybe I’m mis-remembering, but that’s what I remember reading.] But of course your spiritual thinking would be totally different, thank heavens! Warm wishes to you –
I shouldn’t chuckle, but that made me chuckle. They had faith. Warm wishes to you, too, Mica.
My son’s really negative about faith. We had a strong connection with an ashram for many of his growing up years. I think he liked ‘trust’ better, but that sounds like a bank. Have a good day, Holly in Ohio [whatever that means..]
