On a brilliantly sunny early Spring day, following the pink moon last night, I set out into ‘town’-that being the Bucks County, PA ‘burb called Doylestown for a much procastinated medical appointment. After the exam, I headed to a newly opened biz on one of the main thoroughfares for an infinitely more enjoyable doc visit. Doc Baker’s Farmulation offers cold pressed juice & plant based food, organic, local, Non-GMO, soy free, dairy free; just the thing for this health conscious, soon to be heading to the gym, gracefully aging hippie who wants to remain so. Loved the colorful atmosphere, the friendly staff, as well as the pineapples on the tables and windowsills that served both as decoration and contents of tasty treats. Accompanied by a book called Discover Your Woman Within: A Journey To Wholeness that I will be reviewing shortly for The Bliss Blog, I sipped and savored a green apple smoothie that contained (besides apples), kale, ginger and lemon juice. The sweet-tart combination remains with me even a few hours later and my body is humming with delight.
As I was enjoying the repast for body, mind and spirit, a woman named Arlene perches on a nearby stool and we strike up a conversation about ‘life, the Universe and everything’; topics ranging from her job in the correctional system in NJ, to nearing retirement, from planning a trip to Disneyworld with her grandchildren in the Fall, to my interview with the Dalai Lama, from the Woman Within training I took a few weeks ago, to creating vision boards. We agree that everything happens for a reason and somehow we were meant to meet today; not sure yet the purpose.
Lately I have pondered even more intensely why things happen the way they do and when I am going to be living my dreams full out. Since I teach these concepts, I figure that I had better have some idea of direction and focus. Each day I write, plan, scheme, seedplant and plot my next moves. I ask the Universe for guidance, and mostly listen for the response and more often than not, follow it. I surround myself with positive people who encourage and support my forward leaps and lofts. There are times when I get bewildered and entangled in snares and snarky sentiments. I immerse myself in inspiring books and music. Listening to Pandora now, IZ issuing forth with Somewhere Over The Rainbow. My heart rides on the Hawaiian waves~
I can taste and feel the difference when I am attuned to the woman within.
