Transitions Into Joy

How could I have lived this morning differently?

I could have given Ewan my undivided attention this morning instead of rushing into doing the washing up. I could have sat and centred myself before running headlong into working on anything other than my state of being. I could have left the brown envelope unopened until I had done my morning ritual. I could have let Dru have his morning smoke before I told him the bad news. I could have seen things differently instead of crumpling into helplessness and despair. I could have been patient with myself for feeling upset about it all.

I feel I need to get a morning routine that is more helpful to me. I want to enter the day in a conscious state of peace and joy not barreling around trying to catch up and missing so much.
I don’t want Ewan to feel left out and like he has to protest by weeing on the carpet. I don’t want to be angry with him any more.

Why despite a great night with friends do I feel so negative? It’s almost a default setting and I guess I need to spend plenty of time resetting my habitual mind.

I have a ‘poor me’ nature that is entirely outmoded in this new way of being. I need to get back my natural bliss. It has been hidden for so many years, so I need patience with myself.

Seeing as how I find difficulties where there need be none, it behoves me to pre-plan for these inevitable downers. What do I do when I feel confused, disappointed, dissatisfied or dissociated? What strategies can I put in place to help myself out of the darkness?

Time and again I must remind myself that I AM strong, I AM resilient, I AM tough.

I need to break through this layer of false weakness and find the real substance I know is there. I can bring my vibration to a high place if I practice and practice like I mean it. Remembering to do this must also become second nature.

Raise it up!
Don’t drop it!
We are riding waves
Of vibration
Simply put
It’s the only real issue
That matters!

About…what?

It’s hard to write an about page. Some say we should tell our story, but mine is too complex for one page…it’s a book so I’ve stated what I am about in the present time, my motivation so to speak. This is my vision, if that isn’t who I am, then I am history.

About.

ART Focus: “The Spirit of Nature”

her red hair flies in the wind as she contemplates herself reflected in a leafy shoot acrylic on canvas by phoebe thomasson uk artist

I started this painting on my fortieth birthday and as yet, remains unfinished.

She is nature herself, gazing at her own manifestation; the seedling that represents new growth was the budding confidence as an individual coming into her power.

We don’t know we lack personal power until we start to find it. It is that sense of ‘something missing’ that drives us to search. If we don’t search and strive, we never find.

Without our nature intact life has little real meaning.

The way we search is our own unique journey. We cut paths in virgin territory. The paths have never been trod before in the way we will tread them.

We may think that everything has been said before. The spirit of nature disagrees and will always encourage new growth.

Personal growth is the power of everyone. One for all, all for one.

This is the Spirit of the Age; Nature personified.
