OVERTHINKING

"No matter where you go or what you do, you live your entire life within the confines of your head." 
~ Terry Josephson ~

With our minds we can make anything mean anything. Through judgment, criticism, or at the other end of the spectrum, through idealization and fantasy, we create our world, for good or ill. We can manufacture a whole scenario with all kinds of reasons why we should feel badly, and so we feel badly, or feel great excitement, and so we feel that.
     But what if we could suspend our attachment to thinking and judging and fantasizing, for even a brief moment. Wouldn't that make us free?

I watch my thoughts, and experience the joy of letting go of my attachment to them.

CLEARING THE MIND

"An inability to stay quiet is one of the most conspicuous failings of mankind." 
~ Walter Bagehot ~

It's a challenge to enjoy life when we are overthinking everything, when we are trying to figure it all out in review or in advance. Our noisy minds block us and deter us from experiencing joy in whatever may or may not be happening, and life becomes blurred and distorted by our endlessly running internal narrative.
     Let's learn to be mindful. It's not complicated, though it does require our attention. We're worth it, and so is the glorious experience of our life!

ACCESS TO RELIEF

"On even the most stressful days, magic is still sitting quietly in the corner, waiting to be noticed."
~ Dr. SunWolf ~

Tension in life is emotionally and physically crippling. It binds us up in knots. It makes us rigid and sore and unbending. It thrusts us into conflict with those with whom we interact.
     And even though we may not feel as if we have the power to release it, we do. Access to relief is available to us anytime and anywhere, as soon as we step up to claim it.

I am aware of building tension and know how to let go.

CELEBRATING LOVE!

"Take away love and our earth is a tomb." 
~ Robert Browning ~

I'm glad we have a holiday specifically dedicated to love - complete with red hearts, fresh flowers and chocolate! What could be better? And we don't have to have some intimate other to celebrate. We can celebrate the love we have for our family, our friends, and ourselves. Valentine's Day is simply a time to indulge in sensuous things, and in the richness of a warm feeling of connectedness with others.
   
I am present and grateful for the experience of love in my life!
❤️

FROM FRAZZLE TO FOCUS

"Mindfulness... changes the heart's capacity to accept life as it is." 
~ Sylvia Boorstein ~

How can we shift consciously from frazzle to focus? How can we free ourselves from the tyranny of our ceaseless thoughts? These may be some of the most important questions we can ask ourselves, for without understanding the answer, without having tools at our disposal to quiet our minds, we are prisoners as surely as if we were behind bars.

I master mindfulness and enjoy my life.

PEOPLE LIKE US

"People like us do things like this." 
~ Seth Godin ~

This Daily Blog is an exchange sure as any conversation between family or friends. I offer my observations and experience, and you receive them with grace. Thank you for that! Thank you for being who you are and caring about the things you care about! Together, we make the world a better place!!
     This blog has been around for over seven years now, persistent, consistent, and on track. A book has come out of it, and an award, and thousands of followers. And you are special and unique among them!
     It's time to level up. I've been dancing around this idea for a long time, and now it's time to take the step for real. I invite us now to meet each other in a new way, in real time, in a video format online, to exchange ideas and learn from each other in the moment, in the spoken word, and with our facial expressions and our eyes. It's not for everyone, but perhaps it's for you. Click HERE to find out how.

I welcome ever-deeper connection with the people out there like me.

SWEET SILENCE

"It is only when we silent the blaring sounds of our daily existence that we can finally hear the whispers of truth that life reveals to us." 
~ K.T. Jong ~

There is so much peace in silence, so much restoration and calm. When I was younger, I could never understand how anyone would choose not to play music, but I get it now. Silence gives us access to sounds and feelings we cannot know when we are continuously surrounded by noise.

I make time for the open space of silence.
