I decided to work in one of my own journals this morning… I’m always so busy doing stuff for everyone else (via collaborative projects) that I often neglect doing things for my self… my own pleasure. So… the above photo is what it looks like at the moment…
Moving along to some other thoughts… I’ve managed to get all tangled up with someone who had no inkling about having gotten entangled (I’m good at that kind of thing)… long distance, no less! And of course, I’m terribly embarrassed about the whole sordid mess… and realizing (with some relief) that it would probably have been disastrous anyway.
I hope to someday find someone who will match me in intellect as well as spiritual-personal depth. In Steve I’d found an intellectual match, but the other part is still under major construction. Man, it’s tough… :^P

More Musings on Letting Go for Peace of Mind
March 1, 2009
For this week’s meditation, we turn to Chuang Tzu, an
influential 4th century Chinese philosopher, who tells
Flow with whatever may happen and let your
mind be free: Stay centered by accepting
whatever you are doing. This is the ultimate.
Take the usual long, slow deep breaths until you’re
calm and focused.
Now flow with whatever’s going on around you. If it’s
noisy, flow with the noise. If it’s quiet, go deeper
into the quiet.
As you breathe in again, accept everything that’s going
on around you and within you. Hold that breath and
accept it all right now.
Now slowly exhale and let go of everything you just
Whoa, that is the ultimate!
Work with this meditation every day this week.
Until next time,

Being in a transitory stage of my life right now -in oh so many ways- (though, truth be told, when are we not, if we are continually evolving as humans? the only constant being *change*…), this was particularly useful to me. Letting go… going with the flow.
I also signed up for Kelly Kilmer’s Prompt-A-Day thingie for March…a prompt to do a daily check-in with myself… just what I need… to unravel the tangled ball of yarn that I am.
