Magic Happens

I woke up this morning with a sudden urge to fly out to London. That was followed by an urge to go see some friends at my old job.

I made a few stops along the way smiling at the words on the magazine cover, and the words in the flyer posted on street lights, knowing full well that I'm always in the company of pure magic.

Things have been going amazingly well, the right words finding me, the right person with the right name coming into view...everything just carries on in an unpredictable way all the while maintaining its magic and warmth.

And lately everything's just been falling into place in the most elegant of ways. Solutions appearing before there's even a problem. Answers coming before I've even formulated the question. A beautiful groove is making itself a part of my moments.

I got to my destination and we did what we usually do when we get together. We laugh. We talk. We share. We play the movies in our heads for one another. Poo flinging Monkey's, stoner movies, hawaii, and dancing animated creatures all made the conversation list.

Then it happened. The loveliest thing I ever get to witness and be a part of in this life. Magic. One of my love shines found out she was the recipient of an unexpected scholarship. Just like that, the tone of the day got even higher than it already was. Her joy and disbelief turned themselves into tears while her words followed up with "it just feels like it's too good to be true".

It's too good NOT to be true!

Everything to me is an affirmation of just how good life is. And when life drives me to walk into scenes like that, scenes that are heart warming to begin with, but end up becoming MORE than anticipated, my heart just reaches new places in appreciation and total love of this beautiful life.

I'm so thankful for these moments.
I'm so thankful that I got to be a part of someone's excitement.
I'm so thankful life gives me so many opportunities to truly feel the magic of everything here.

I'm equally thankful that the volume button on my laptop just decided to work.

Magic happens. ALL the time!

deeply in Love,
- me

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…

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. 

To honor …

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
