Starting Again

February 8th, 2011

It’s never to late to start over,right? I am trying to get serious about blogging, so here goes.
This year has started out better than many. I feel lots of hope for the future.The Buddha says(and I love the Buddha) “Abandon Hope”-but somehow, I can’t do that one. I think he meant it as a way of avoiding suffering, which is self inflicted when one has expectations that don’t pan out. But I like to have hope without expectations-it’s definitely not static and always subject to change!
If you don’t know who Kris Carr, please check her out at;then buy her new book,Crazy Sexy Diet.Her approach to diet and lifestyle saved my life when I had the last canSer diagnosis(as Kris likes to spell it, just to piss it off). I feel better than I ever have and have tons of energy.
Back to the subject of hope, I think it’s important to hope for better days-and work toward them too, even when that means struggling with all your being to overcome financial fear,health fear,relationship fear, creativity fear-or whatever your particular fear du jour is.Working to change your mindset through fear is what I believe can cause your veritable DNA to wake up to change! Think about it! The mind is that powerful.
In fact, I think I am going to meditate on that right now, and then fix up a tasty bowl of curried lentils and quinoa for dinner.

I’ll be back

Sunday musings

September 27th, 2009

The rain has finally passed and the sun is shining-what a beautiful cool, crisp fall morning. God’s grace is ever present. An inspiring quote I read went something like this-Even during a drought, the tree reaches its roots down deeper into the earth in its search for water.There is always something to learn through every change of the seasons and every change in our lives. Only in the looking back does it seem easier to understand. Like the yoga pose, tree-continuing to stand strong, dig those roots deeper, stay grounded, and feel our balance challenged so often, but doing our best to stay.
