Lucky

i'm about as non-committal as they come when it comes to some things. keeping up with my diary, blogs, writing projects, emails. i actually enjoy deleting things and shredding pieces and burning paper. i'm not sure why but i don't like to question my crazy. i do love the word play though, and so i always come back.

so here we are again. me in bed for a few days with not much to do but play with words. me and the word fest trying to tackle each other until one of us gives in.

okay words. you win. i love you. let's put you up.

i love to reflect on the wonder that is this life. it is a wonder you know. a wonder your mind can't grasp. a wonder i can't put into words. all i can ever do is say "thank you" over and over again to the force that moves us all. i had four days of the universe exploding into love and me trying my best to not give myself away. from jersey to NYC to philly back to my little piece of peace i call home. and i saw my first magnolia tree up close.

and though my body right now complains and is keeping me in bed, my heart is so full that it feels like it's about to combust. let it. 'cause i'm sure we're here to fall in Love and drown in the bliss of this beautiful life.

i'm the luckiest girl in the world. and to be Lucky, turns out, is just my birthright.

Baby Smiles as Meditation

You know when you're having a frazzled day and something pops up in your face to get you to slow down, get back to earth, and just remember how amazing life is? Today, that something for me was a smiling baby.

In my mad dash to get all my errands done, I was up in my head rushing through the aisles of the store and running through the checklist in my head. I get that way now and again, forgetting to breathe deeply and relax into my moments. I can't even say it's the human condition or the world we live in. It's not any of that, it's forgetting to remember or overlooking the ease and flow that's always here to carry us when we remember to just slow it all down.

I look up as I push my cart around, and there he is, this little round faced ball of happiness just staring at me. The moment our eyes meet, he breaks into a huge smile like my turning to look at him was all he was waiting for, like we're bff's who haven't seen each other in ages and are about…

The End of Time: The Next Revolution in Our Understanding of the Universe

When a book clearly articulates a map of "time" that makes the most sense, you have to go get yourself a copy of that book...

“Nows within this now, rather like snapshots in an album. Each Now is separate and a world unto itself, but the richly structured Nows 'know' about one another because they literally contain one another in certain essential respects. As consciousness surveys many things at once in one Now, it is simultaneously present, at least in part, in other Nows. This awareness of many things in one could well exist in a much more pronounced form in other places in Platonia.” ― Julian Barbour


The End of Time: The Next Revolution in Our Understanding of the Universe by Julian Barbour

What does it mean to Honor the Self?

Such great wisdom from Dr Nathaniel Branden:
The first act of honoring the self is the assertion of consciousness. The choice to think, to be aware, to send the searchlight of consciousness outward toward the world, and inward toward your own being. To fail in this effort is to fail the self at the most basic level. 

To honor the self is to be willing to think independently, to live by your own mind, and to have the courage of your own perceptions and judgments. 

To honor the self is to be willing to know not only what you think, but also what you feel, what you want, need, desire, suffer over, are frightened or angered by, and to accept your right to experience such feelings. The opposite of this attitude is denial, disowning, repression, self-repudiation. 

To honor the self is to preserve an attitude of self acceptance, which means to accept what you are without self criticism, without lying about who you are in a pretense aimed at deceiving either yourself or someone else.
