Enforced Fortitude

             Remember when we talked recently about time?  Well, today we’re returning to that topic.  Or, one adjacent to it, anyway.

             As we focus on our Acceptance, we must practice Observation.  To be in a place of Joy, we must be conscious of seeing the beauty in our surroundings.  We must be active in our perceptions, in order to be serene in our mindfulness.

             So, right now, we are back to . . . .

lessons of patience.

             And for that message (not EVEN coincidentally), our daily draw defines it best.  Because, like dropping into quicksand, when we struggle, we sink.

“Stuck In The Mud  ~  24  ~

‘You are being invited to stop and savor the wonder of your life.’

Becoming stuck is sometimes the only way to trick yourself into slowing down and looking around you.  In fact, this is a sign that you need to shift your focus away from what you’re doing and place your attention elsewhere.

Struggling will only get you to even muddier places.

Now is not the time to move forward, but to observe.  Clarity about your circumstances will come a little later.  Stop and find the joy in what you have been overlooking.

Soon you’ll be out of the mud, but for now, be still and know that Spirit has a plan for you.”

Today’s Sharing:

is the following photo from this morning’s Seattle Times.  Because, not ALL the news was bad.

The caption read: "Front to back, Alex Hudson, Hanna Brooks Olsen and Sarah Anne Lloyd cheer during the Yes for Seattle Transit Election Night party at the Comet Tavern in Capitol Hill."

             Yeah, she’s kinda political, can’t imagine where she gets it.  (And come on, how much fucking fun is it to see your kid in the damn paper?!)

  1. It is glad to see some joy with an election this year… It seems kind of odd that many relatively liberal (or at least not reactionary) measures passed while so many reactionaries were elected. The Guardian summed it up. “The U.S. has elected the party it likes the least to lead the chamber that it likes the least. Look for some interesting results.”

    It’s difficult, and strange.

    And it’s -really- cool to get to see your kid in the paper! Enjoy!
