I’m thinking about my experiences this week and I’m not quite sure what to write. In general I feel like a molten lava flow; things are hot and churning and burning – but definitely flowing. I feel more sensitive. That’s saying a lot – I’m already ridiculously sensitive. Things are getting done – my fires to put out list is getting shorter (noticing the fire imagery here – note to self – check out Pele). I have had moments of elation and moments of despair this week. “Do it now” is cutting through my tendency to procrastinate. “I can be what I will to be” is cutting through my tendency to sabotage myself in exquisitely subtle ways.
Perhaps this sounds a bit negative. I am feeling ruthlessly honest right now. I have to say that Og’s chapter on love is amazingly soothing. I thought I would feel more cynical about it. It wraps around me like a blanket of Slippery Elm tea. “I will greet this day with love in my heart”. Oh yay! let’s do it! Let’s do use love as our shield! I do love the night with its stars! I’m pretty much getting my three times a day in with this one.
That about sums it up for now. Good night dear friends.
