As I sit at the end of another year, 55 years living, I am very grateful for where I sit...mentally, emotionally, and especially spiritually. I feel that I have grown into the space of appreciating my journey and loving me.
I can also see me from many points light...and most often from an expanded view and ever more often with the eyes and heart of love.
For me, there isn't a troubled area that needs my attention today. Nor, are there places that I feel lack and neglected and unseen and unheard...by me.
I see me.
I feel me.
I am with Me.
My personality and soul seem to be traveling arm and arm.
I will be doing a daily meditation following Melody Beattie's book "Journey to the Heart" this year. And in the forward she writes about her experience of writing this book...
"In my sixteen years of professional writing, this is the eighth book I've worked or collaborated on and the second meditation book I've written. Yet it is the first. It is the only one that has not been based on, rooted in, grounded in, the concept of overcoming devasting pain. Instead, the book, like my journey reflects a spirit of excitement, adventure, freedom, and joy. Yes, sometimes pain is still part of it, but suffering no longer plays the role it once did." Melody
I feel this is where I am.
My journey through last year and continuing on is one of adventure, excitement, new experiences, new friends, new learning, more freedom of expression and joy.
Joy of seeing my children continue to grow and learn new experiences and go through phases of life's milestones. Joy of being with my kids. Of hearing them laugh and seeing the wisdom pour forth. Of doing what they love and to express themselves As themselves; being unique.
I am beginning to see the seeds that I have planted in those early years beginning to sprout.
I believe that my changes are rippling outward, inward....around.
I leave 2014 with no regrets and instead marvel at the orchestrations of the Universe, my life and journey...and look forward to what 2015 will present to me.
I have no resolutions or demands for next year.
I am content and quite grateful for today.
It is my intention to stay present.
To pay attention to the artful displays of nature and life unfold.
Melody says her book is about Discovery.
Imagine what is going on in each moment of time...how much can you see, feel and hear?
I am more excited about being here now....and letting the future be here when I get here. For this is where the real thing is....right here, right now, with who you are with!
