Being Furnished

Human beings are so absolutely gracious and beautiful. I'm surrounded by Love. It never ends to amaze me just how quickly people show up as Love, being, and expressing nothing but generosity each and every step of the way. Beings in my life and virtual strangers keep showing up to show me just how vast the Love that we are extends. It is so lovely!

I've been in my new home having no idea what to shop for to furnish my new place. I've never had to furnish an entire apartment before so figuring out what I like, how I want it to look, and the money involved is all new arena. It's really nice to get to develop my own taste and style, to discover the decor guru within myself. So as the scenes pass and various amazing beings hear that I don't have furniture yet, free little pieces started showing up. But that's not the beautiful's the way beautiful human being after beautiful human being showed up on my doorstep with furniture pieces in their hands asking "hey would you have use for this" with genuine concern, kindness, and openness. I want to figure out what I like and find my own taste in the items I ultimately bring into my home, but that I have these "in the meantime" pieces show up through these kinds of gestures, continues to redefine just what humanity is about for me. I love human beings! Like, a whole lot! And I love that these free pieces are giving me the time I need to create the kind of space I really want without having to go rush out and just fill my space out with stuff I'm not crazy about. I actually want to be crazy about everything I bring home with me!

I've narrowed my living room furnishings down to wanting it all to be dark furniture, mostly dark brown items. Just one sofa and maybe a matching chair (maybe), a coffee table, and just one end table. I want to keep the space open and free of clutter. I love walking into a space that feels and looks spacious and that's what I want to create for my living room. I definitely want an area rug and would actually love it if they removed or replaced the "I'll grow to love it" carpet that right now covers most of the apartment. In contrast, I think I definitely want my dining area to have light wood furniture, but still be elegant and a "grandma's kitchen" graduate - meaning I want a modern "fine dining" type of look but with a light touch. I have no idea what I want for my bedroom yet. The bed works great but no theme is popping out at me. I think I want to have a reading chair in there. It will come. In the meantime, I'm finding that this figuring it out thing is just another beautiful layer of self-discovery and self-expression.

You are lovely!



My lovie Kid!I am so happy to hear all the fun stuff that happen to you!You are pure magick!

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

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.
