"Seek out that particular mental attribute which makes you feel most deeply and vitally alive, along with which comes the inner voice which says, 'This is the real me,' and when you have found that attitude, follow it." William James (1842-1909 American Psychologist & Author).
"If a man empties his purse into his head, no man can take it away from him. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest." Ben Franklin
Both quotes are perfect in their own regard. I am always searching for that internal compass that is clear and vocal and persistent... then attempting to surrender to it!! Listening and surrendering are the critical elements for me. I had a great chat with Pam on Saturday and we discussed the possibility of creating a program of some sort that assists with enhancing people's awareness - mindfulness - consciousness.
This is where the second quote above dovetails perfectly. My current plan is to pursue the Courage & Renewal facilitator training program and revisit Dr. Ellen J. Langer's book and teachings around Mindfulness. Her authenticity and "no-nonsense" approach to the entire subject is fun and very appealing! (A Fru Fru Free Zone! OR A Frou Frou Free Zone.. =) )
It's a rainy day today. I rather wish the precipitation where frozen nicely... I am enjoying the wetness regardless of the temperature... busy day.
I decided back in November 2015 to make my poetry available and journal online. I'm not exactly sure what "blogging" means but I am quite sure this is an online journal. Feel free to read on with an aire of open minded curiosity. At no time do I intend to offend, judge or pretend to know anything really, I'm just an observer and explorer, as we all are. Feel free to "boldly go" through my observations and perhaps it will spark or inspire. Comments are off because I don't want to be worried about political correctness when I'm writing. I'm not thinking about "you." I'm just writing because it feels "right". Feel free to enjoy or surf on.
