Tuesday: Invite Bliss

 

 

A  Although I have found that bliss is ever present, sometimes it requires an invitation to enter. If bliss had a shape or form, what would it be? What color, size, temperature, sound, taste and smell? Immerse yourself in this full sensory experience as you anchor it in. Our bodies carry ‘sense memory’ of whatever happens and can’t discern between what is concrete and what we simply imagine. You can conjure this up anytime, anywhere you choose…bliss is merely a thought away.

     Inner Vacation

     Take a moment to close your eyes and breathe; placing one hand on your belly and one on your chest. In that way, you feel connected to your body and aware of being present and to anchor what you are about to encounter. Too often we disengage from the physical while our minds go off on vacation elsewhere. In your vivid imagination, call up a memory of a delightful experience. Be aware of who it is that is with you, or perhaps you are in sweet solitude. Are you in a peaceful place in nature or surrounded by activity? Drink in the environment and allow the feelings to wash over you. Be with this experience for as long as you can sustain it and when you are ready to return to your ‘here and now’ consciousness, begin to be aware of the sensations in the room, carrying with you, the beauty of what you have just experienced, knowing that you can return anytime you choose.

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

With An Open Hand
  When you consider all of the things that you desire; from relationships to abundance, from faith to freedom, from possessions to passion, how do you hold them?  What I mean by that is this:  do you hold them with a closed fist; grasping, clinging as if for dear life or can you let go a b

The Art of Surrender
On Saturday, I began my day in retrospective musing. Listening to Ellis Paul singing Dragonfly  on Sleepy Hollow  to greet the sun. Was reading earlier entries down my time line on Facebook and marveled at how far I have come since everything changed with the 'cardiac event' on June 12th. It was o
