New Operating System - Principle #7
7. The direction of life is from duality to unity: Today I want to belong. I want to feel safe and at home. I want to be aware of what it's like simply to be, without defenses or desires. I will appreciate the flow of life for what it is--my own true self. I will notice those moments of intimacy with myself, when I feel that "I am" is enough to sustain me forever. I will lie on the grass looking at the sky, feeling myself at one with nature, expanding until my being fades into the infinite.
I probably won't lie on the grass since it is covered in snow but I will try to notice my moments of intimacy with myself as I continue my retreat for clarity. After asking for a "hoshin" question yesterday, I woke up this morning with this question in my mind: How can I spark light, love and laughter wherever I am, in whatever I do?

Joyce, I am so very grateful for your blog. Reading your contemplations helps me center myself when I can't stop the nagging in my head. I won't get to simply be today, I suppose I could make snow angels though I will be satisfied just using imagery.ReplyDelete
Joyce, you spark light by honoring your deep vein of creativity and reflection; love by sharing with us your questions and doubts that are ours also, by creating community with all seeking what Louise calls our "most magnificent" selves; laughter through joy, because joy is infectious and how can we not laugh at our own good luck to experience that?ReplyDelete
Doris and Maureen ... thank you for such a lovely comments ... you definitely made my day.ReplyDelete
Joyce, I came home from Choices this evening eager to share my journey and the Canada US hockey game was on the TV. I breathed and thought, I need to be vulnerable, to ask for what I want, but what I wanted interfered with the game. I wanted to be without 'desire' and let the game play.ReplyDelete
And I lost.
Thank you -- I read your words this evening and breathed and reminded myself -- it is okay to be vulnerable and to have desires. I am learning what it is I require in relationship and to be okay with my desires.
Your hoshin question is powerful -- sometimes for me, the clarity comes when I go through the gale to find my calm on the other side.
Thank you for your words this evening. you have given me much needed light.
