Swimming in the sea makes me feel most alive !
Singing is one of my favorites, and being in pure nature, where sometimes, this being emerged with all is aliveness pure, or being outside during a thunderstorm (preferably in summer 🙂 ) and letting the rain pour on me. As a child, I went outside then with an umbrella, imagining I could fly like Mary Poppins. So much fun!
being with/talking to thoes people that just make you forget about everything and just have the best time no matter what is when i feel most alive and is truley the best when your with them and forget every bad thing and are just living the moment. struggling with mental health these times remind me why im happy to be on this earth and i am go glad to be surrounded by the best most wonderful people.
i am a competitive dancer, the nervous yet energetic feeling before i step on the stage/floor to compete has to be the time i feel most alive and out of this world.
Great conversations, hikes in nature and deep silences that burst into life.
Coffee and inner reflection at sunrise.
Reaching into another soul and leaving love there.
quality time with my family
Doing my sadhana.
my early morning walks in our beautiful area; the sea; dancing – all “me” stuff, I’m afraid.
Exercise and kundalini yoga
One is when I have slept well. Another is when I am alone and organize everything at my own pace.
Having slept well – that’s a big one
Being in nature. Exercising. Anything that activates me senses — music I’m listening to, food I’m tasting, emotions I’m feeling, beauty I’m seeing.
A really rich conversation with like minded people which is both challenging and affirming of my own thoughts and feelings.
Anything to do with nature, from the ocean(especially), where we used to vacation, to the wooded areas here close to home, the canyons on the way to Estes, or Mishawaka, Glenwood, The Flatirons on the way to Boulder. Babies, my grandchildren, being with family, journaling, meditation, music, from Verdi’s Requiem to Pop and Rock and Roll. All different kinds if music.
This question brings back a memory for me that is very old….my first thought about this, other than the ocean, was when I was probably about 10 or 11 years old. I was with my family, and we had gone on a vacation to Wisconsin. It was early morning, and my father and I went down to the dock, got in an aluminum boat, and off we went to fish. It was my first experience of fishing, and I wasn’t too sure I would like it, but I was always game to try something new….after a bit, Dad stopped the boat, put the anchor down, and taught me how to “cast off” after baiting the hook on my pole. (He baited it. I thought it was cruel and disgusting.) Then Dad sat down and cast his line in. Silence. The sun had just come up when we started out, so it was a “new” day for me….I remember the stillness that filled the air…the slow rocking of the boat…..the trees that surrounded the lake…..It was quiet, the air was fresh all around me, and for the first time, I remember feeling so alive and happy!
Hi Mary Pat. I used to fish occasionally with my Dad. We had a sort of rustic cottage on a small lake. I was always happy when I went with him. We were both pretty quiet anyway, so it was a peaceful outing. It is a wonderful memory. He passed away when he was 56 of cancer, so this lives in my heart pretty deeply.
