This is what I’m doing this week – walking the walk, practising loving kindness as Anna says.  I’m taking a little mental break from trying to “fix” everything.  It’s not like I don’t have other things to do, who couldn’t use some extra time to attend to other things, right?  I certainly have a long list, so all extraneous negativity will have to take a back seat.  So this week, it’s all going to be meditations and physical activity.  Aunt Flo is here to keep me company and remind me  to shed what is not needed.  Bittersweet though that might be.

“I believe that we are put here in human form to decipher the hieroglyphs of love and suffering. and there is no degree of love or intensity of feeling that does not bring with it the possibility of a crippling hurt. but, it is a duty to take that risk and love without reserve or defense.”

by buddhist poet allen ginsburg.

It is important to have a sufficiently elevated life-condition so that you will be able to calmly accept whatever happens in life, striving to put problems into proper perspective and solving them with a positive attitude. Happiness blossoms forth from such a strong and all-encompassing life-condition.
