Friday-Bliss Kiss For Your Weekend

 

As your sweet delight to enter into your weekend…..bring to mind a time when you felt most alive, most vibrant. Where were you? Were you on vacation at an exotic destination or in your own back yard, feeling like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz chanting, “There’s no place like home.” ? Take a moment to look around in your imagination station and use all of your senses to drink in this time and place. Add color and sound to the mind movie. See who might be in your personal paradise with you. Be aware of how your body feels while you are there. Now, the beauty of this experience is that you are absorbing the awe and your body is likely feeling the sensations as if you are experiencing it in the moment. Our minds and bodies are so intricately linked that we can’t tell the difference. Carry this with you even if your current weekend plans are nothing more exciting than doing the laundry or mowing the lawn.

    Your words are wonderful, Edie, and many should benefit from them… and on a daily basis. As you said: “Our minds and bodies are so intricately linked that we can’t tell the difference.”
    Know this so well… and thanks for reminding us, and me.

In The Garden of Eden
I spent the day today basking in the sun, dashing in the rain, lounging in a hammock, enjoying healthy munchies, singing, dancing, drumming, hugging, smiling, laughing; all in the presence of kindred spirits. No wonder the event I attended was called Kindred Spirits Labor Day of Love. I was surround

Resurrection
      Last night I watched one of my favorite movies that debuted in 1980. Resurrection starred Ellen Burstyn, Sam Shepard, Eva Le Galliene, Richard Farnsworth and Roberts Blossom. It is the story of Edna Mae McCauley, who in the first 10 minutes or so of the film, has a

Don't Give Up
As I am in the middle of the fifth decade of my life, the world has become a patchwork quilt of experiences. In the last 55 years, I have splashed in puddles of joy and gasped for air while feeling like I was drowning in sorrow. I have been clutched by fear and basked in light. Through it all, I hav

Heaven On Earth
    "Imagine, will you....Heaven On Earth For Real." These are the words that are on my friend Tambra Harck's Facebook page. I think about it a lot since I believe that we create our own vision/version in our vivid imaginations. One of my favorite songs on the topic, sung by Ma
