    Worry...when did I learn THAT?

    Friday, January 30, 2009, 10:13 AM [General]

    Good morning and welcome!

    Somewhere in my life I developed the habit of worrying.  It is a taxing habit but I think in some cases my psychology is that if I don't worry, I'm not doing my job.....like worrying about my children!  Now that's a very subtle belief but I think its there!  Somehow I may have convinced myself that the day I stop worrying, something bad will happen.

     Now that is amazing!  How did I come to that conclusion?  Worry costs my peace of mind, worry doesn't make anything better in fact it makes me tired.  I am very tired of worrying. I "worry" about money, I "worry" about the safety of my children when they are out of site too long (and they are grown!) 

     I know that fear is a cause of worry, but it would be better not to live in fear either...the next step is to figure out how to get out of the "worry" habit.... Where are my lofty thoughts!  I know, I am not meditating!  It will be February in a few days....I still have not set aside the time...

    I do appreciate this beliefnet community its a very wonderful world! It's like a level of heaven!

     warm waves of universal love and light to you!

    Thanks for reading.

    Women as portals...

    Wednesday, January 28, 2009, 7:43 AM [General]

    Good morning and welcome!

     

    Its nice to blog again!  I was thinking about women and the process that they go through when pregnant and then giving birth.  I was reminded about this because of the email I received from someone who provides spiritual counseling.

    The person (a woman) referenced angels and the thought struck me that I only hear about these types of things from women.  My question was are women more predisposed to believing in the spirit world and if so...why?  Then I remembered being pregnant and knowing that whoever was passing through me was coming from another dimension.  Not the body, but the life that inhabited the body of my child.

    I also remember being exposed to an inner freedom that wasn't part of my normal experience.  Being pregnant was more than a physical experience for me, it was the one time that i felt like a portal.  I wonder then if this openness to the idea of angels, spirits is part of our natural position in the material world.  We are always at the door because we are the door.

    a good night's sleep....

    Tuesday, January 27, 2009, 10:41 AM [General]

    Good morning and welcome!

    My blog feed was down for a few days...a technical error...that happens sometimes...

    Our lives can be challenging and some more so than others, it would be so nice if we could change our society so that each of us could have at least the benefit of "a good nights sleep" every night.  Is that too much for us to ask for? Most nights are NOT restful, but are filled with worry and in-between hour awakenings due to worry!  

    I awakened this morning grateful for a "good night's sleep."  It's not that I feel so refreshed, but I feel so comfortable and so cozy. I feel balanced not stressed.  Rest is one of life's small miracles.  I often wonder, where do I go, when I sleep and can't remember any dreams?  How is it that the body, tired, the mind chaotic "falls" asleep and if I go deep enough, I lose my awareness of my body and this world.  What is that? Where is that?  I awaken WITHOUT 6 to 8 hours of  knowledge of "this world" and I'm better for it. 

    Like most everyone I know am very busy, so busy there seems to be no time for rest and reflection.  However the body must have its rest, so every night, I lay down.  There are times that even when laying down, falling asleep, that I awaken and still have not "rested."  So on mornings like this.  When I have rested, I am grateful.

    Ordinary people....

    Friday, January 23, 2009, 11:22 AM [General]

    Good morning and welcome!

    Now that the inauguration has occurred and we getting to work, its nice to know that the President takes his job seriously. Its time for us to be steady in the midst of our FEAR of the STORM.  

     I am reminded this morning of the song, ordinary people.  "We're just ordinary people...a beautiful song (by John Legend) and a good theme for today.  We are just ordinary people so we'll take it slow. 

    (Lyrics)

    We're just ordinary people
    We don't know which way to go
    Cuz we're ordinary people
    Maybe we should take it slow (Take it slow oh oh ohh)
    This time we'll take it slow (Take it slow oh oh ohh)

    This time we'll take it slow (no running through the white house with scissors!)

    Love and falling...

    Thursday, January 22, 2009, 11:06 AM [General]

    Good morning and welcome!

    No lofty thoughts this morning!  I did awaken early and my day has started on time.  But I did not hear that small voice of God.  My head was filled with my own voice, praying, asking for forgiveness for sins against myself. I work very hard not to harm anyone, but sometimes I harm myself by over doing things. 

    My thoughts this morning are on love.  I perceive love to be a force and I think every human being has experienced love in some way.  We have certainly experienced the effects of love.  However for me love is still a curious phenomenon.  Love is a motivational force that compels people and some animals to action.  Love is so much like a chemical bond. Love is often the motivational force that drives people to do great and terrible deeds.  I posted a question on someone's bulletin board about falling in love.  This person responded to the aspect of "falling" in love.  I've been thinking about that ever since and can't come up with a logical response.

     Falling from grace, falling down, falling....no one wants to fall, but when and how did "falling" become a part of love?
