Ya know what I think part of my issue is with waking up?  Or rather, more truthfully, with NOT waking up well?  It’s my dreams.  I’m so freaking busy and active while I’m sleeping that I feel exhausted when the alarm goes off, like I never rested at all.  (It’s a theory, anyway.)

             No clue why I have such a terrible relationship with time, that needs further investigating.  What I do know is that the hours just keep marching along, with or without us.  I recall that in one of Doreen’s cards she says something about how whether we do or don’t follow up with a passionate idea, time will have gone by, no matter what we decided.

             Her point being, we may as well do what we love, because that amount of days will fly on past, whether we’ve done it or not.  I like that concept.

             What I woke up with in my head today was THIS SONG (sorry, I can’t do the embedded video).  And this message:

accepting and honouring the ways (and traditions) of others is entirely about love and forgiveness.

             Did you listen to the music?  Written by a true wordsmith, the man is a genius.  And the concept of forgiving, accepting, honouring?  So important.  It’s not even about “tolerating” because that denotes a lesser feeling.  When we truly validate how other people live and work and celebrate, THEN we’ve accomplished something wonderful.  THEN we are a genuine community.

             On our card altar, this guy showed up.  Every time we see him, it makes me smile.  (And want to learn firedancing………)

“The Fire Prince  ~  40  ~

optimism, aggression

When the Fire Prince arrives as your Ally he lets you know that he represents the invisible forces behind all manner of manifestation, and he brings you the gift of optimism.   You will be rightly inspired to move forward and take confident and assertive action to reach your goal.

Envisioning the path of highest good with an optimistic outlook, the Fire Prince also brings you the gift of a miracle.  Things come together as if by magic to create the reality you seek.

You have every reason to be hopeful.   Move forward, knowing that you have everything you need and more.  Just remember to share the enthusiasm, believe in others, and be optimistic for them, too, and your good fortune will multiply.”

             Doesn’t this just give us such a hopeful and inspiring sense?  Much like our Bat message from yesterday, we actually CAN fly!

Wisdom Of The Hidden Realm by Colette Baron-Reid

Today’s Mileage:

was just to pool class and back, for 3.870 miles, in 24 minutes 55 seconds, with a very misty and getting-dark average pace of 9.3 MPH.

             For the month of September I rode a grand total of 158.315 miles, bringing our Year To Date number up to 1229.636 (an amount I cannot actually comprehend when I try to envision it pedaled by my very own stubby legs).

New Month Calendar Page:

is this one from my Louise Hay “You Can Heal Your Life” edition, in our upstairs hallway.

affirmations, calendars, louise hay

             The illustration page says, “I am an individual expression of Life.”  And down the right-hand side, we have this:

“I am a light in the world.

I follow my inner star, and sparkle and shine in my own unique way.  I am a very precious being.

I have a beautiful soul, outer body, and personality.  But my soul is the center.  My soul is the part of me that is eternal.  It always has been and always will be.

My soul has taken on many personalities, and it will take on many more.  My soul cannot be hurt or destroyed.  It can only be enriched by whatever its life experiences are.

There is so much more to life than I can possibly comprehend.  I shall never know all the answers.  But the more I allow myself to understand how life works, the more power and force I have available to me.”

             Yep, this one’s really good, extremely uplifting, in several ways.  I like the movement of that drawing, too.  Helps to remind us about our limitless journey, and that potential for flight.

  1. My Mom always said she had an awful relationship with numbers. Part of that stemmed from her being an night owl, who was always forced to work and rise to times that didn’t support that, and part stemmed from her absolute lack of understanding about any arithmetical or mathematical concepts. She also had no concept of time as it related to anything other than what was in her head. I would have loved for you to have known her. Maybe next life…

    Feeling very “Betty’s Kid” today. October was her birth month and autumn was her season.

    The more I hear about her the more I have to agree, we would have gotten along GREAT!

  2. Yep, time is a pain in the butt. Fight with it all the time. And there is never ever enough of it. And what there is of it flies away at the least provocation. *sigh* 🙂

    Good song. Amazing AND sad that despite the age of the song so much still applies.

    I was thinking that exact same thing, his words are timeless.

  3. I used to be very attuned to the clock and to time in general. I didn’t feel like I was losing time and seasons and whole years the way I do now. While I don’t necessarily want to be so clock-time aware, I would like to get more in touch with time so I don’t feel as if life is zooming past me.

    Good messages. I want the Fire Prince to come through for me because I definitely need the help.

    The trick to not letting time get past you is really just more Mindfulness. Being aware of special moments. And making the mundane events INTO special moments.

    (Or, ya know, so I’ve heard.)

  4. Hey Julie. Love that song. How that is a lot of miles you have pedaled around the city. I can’t fathom it either. Good for you, all part of the 2.0 Julie or are you now 3.0? Saw an OR plate today and thought of you all.

    I’m dealing with a minor flood in my house this week and for how ever many weeks the insurance company and tradesmen have to work to put down a new floors, repair baseboards and paint. Never had a claim before so this is all new to me and very, very time consuming. Life is never simple lately.

    One, good to see you!

    But more importantly,
    B: ohgawd I’m so sorry about your flood!

    1. I have logged in for so long, I forgot my password. This new decade is something else.

      It’s okay, we recognized you.
      And your door.
