Finding our Light.

I am still amazed at how many of you resonated with a previous post Cracking our Inner Shells. And I am so grateful for your responses and for those who shared this post with their own readers.. 

Knowing that we are the only ones with the power to dim our lights, is often  a hard  pill to swallow. As Human’s we often apportion blame for our emotional feelings  upon others or circumstances we find ourselves in. Yet in truth only I allow myself to feel sad, as likewise only I can choose to feel happy.

It’s natural we sometimes become overwhelmed, especially when the lessons keep coming. But it is important to remember that learning to understand yourself and your world is an on-going journey which we are all  gathering  through our experiences.

We do not come to Earth with instruction manuals, its all about learning and finding ourselves as we progress.  We are  spiritual beings, we need to determine where our spiritual light is being subdued or blocked.  Sometimes life throws up those much needed lessons so we have a chance to remove the layers of debris, so we can get out of our own way to feel our own light shining again.

Those lessons are intended to help you become more of who you are. And as you grow through this self-discovery, you begin to create your own instruction manual. And as with any manual, we often refer back to it as we tap into our intuitive thoughts, which help guide us through the pages of our everyday lives.

Answering the many responses upon my own posts often allows me to reach much deeper within my own inner self..I find myself instinctively saying the right things..As I tap into that Inner World which guides, And then I check myself and then question my self.. As I ask myself “ So why are you not following your own advice?” Practice what you preach is another pill to swallow!..

When we buy a car, we make sure we maintain it properly, we put in the correct fuel, we keep it topped up with oil, and clean and polish it.. Our Bodies are vehicles for our Mind and Spirit. So too we need to polish our thoughts  clearing away the accumulation of mental  debris that keeps us from operating at our fullest capacity.

A simple shift in our thoughts can positively affect our mental state, moving from complaints, and negativity  into gratitude and Positivity by applying the light of love to any shadowy thoughts. .. Learning to nurture oneself instead of chastising oneself, Applying liberally that Polish we seldom use upon our selves… The Name of which is Love. 

How many negative thoughts flit through our minds in a day?  This morning caught me in this mood, Until I heard myself speak my thoughts aloud and I realised just how pitiful they sounded.. And I burst out laughing as I learnt another valued lesson.

At times we need to embrace the stillness, connecting back into the power within our centre, Meditation allows us to reconnect back to the source..  I know this is true of myself, I give my power/energy away by being pulled in too many directions all at once.. This Power Source  is always there for us, but when we forget to connect, we forget to put ourselves first and gather back in the energy we need to power up our own inner Lights. And so our lights become dim..

Sometimes it can be difficult to find the stillness if our bodies and minds are in the way. Depression plays its tricks that we are not worthy.

I can dish out advice until I am blue in the face.. But my lesson in this is clear..

I need to practice what I preach.. As we practice steps to keep our energy flowing freely and without obstruction, we shine our light more brightly, illuminating our own paths and making the world around us brighten as well.

Many thanks for reading

Shine your Lights

~Sue~

    Sue, I also feel that humans are in such “peculiar” situation. Why were we born with the ‘capacity’ to reason things out, or not reason them at all, is still beyond me. There is a tendency to think it is like a ‘test’ perhaps? A ‘test’ from God or another deity to see whether we can pass it? Here’s where I declare myself a Buddhist. The “self” is what gets in the way. The ‘anātman’ refers to the perception of “not-self”, so according to this philosophy, it is highly desirably to be ‘mindful” to conquer the ‘self’, yet to have this ‘mindfulness’ requires a lot of practice, sometimes years. Why does the ‘self’ cling to us? Probably because we lost the capacity to live in the moment and be mindful. Mindfulness meaning ‘doing one thing at a time’ (if it’s possible), because ‘multitasking’ will ‘sidetrack’ you.

      Living in yesterday and tomorrow can become the norm; so ‘today’, or the ‘moment’ is sacrificed, for the sake of either past or future events, which have not even arrived, but tempt us to live like “vigilantes” (anxiety driven justice makers without actual crimes).

        Yes Maria, Learning to live in our Now moments is something I try to do… But sometimes the past creeps up to be faced and once you can face it you then can let it go … Lessons often repeat themselves until we have learnt from them and then we move forward.. This episode is helping me deal with such issues and I am grateful for the opportunity to learn from them.. Many thanks for your presence and comments.. Hugs Sue

    Writing can so often be cathartic, or if not that, then helps us clarify our thinking. When we speak, we often do so only half cognisant of what lies behind the words; there’s an outward-ness of mind that veils what is innermost. A beautiful piece of writing to oneself, such as this, is the perfect antidote Sue.

    I like what you say about getting out of our own way. I think it’s important to allow ourselves to fully feel (to understand why we are feeling the way we do)our emotions rather than stifling them as it makes it easier to shift perspective. Thank you for your beautiful heartfelt post.

    I am was not sure whether or not I should share this. I was thinking that on last post as well, but I think I will share anyway. I know it is safe to share here on your beautiful blog. For me it is like this: From I was very little, whenever people were mean or angry with me, I would always think if it was something wrong with me to make me deserve this or something I had did to provoke it. And many times I would find some tiny thing, like perhaps I didn’t say the right thing, or said too less or were being too shy or something. So for me I had to learn to actually understand that sometimes it is okay to, I don’t like the word blame, but to understand that it was other people who were in the wrong, and that there was nothing wrong with me. I am still little bit like this, if someone gets angry with me I will analyze the situation trying to find faults in my behavior that might have provoked the anger. So for me, looking at myself and my own shortcomings is not really the solution. I am most of the time the one who apologizes even if I said or did nothing. I just do it, because someone needs to do it to take away the anger. But then I have never understood that ego-thing. Also with emotions, my whole childhood I needed to be strong. I was not to show sadness or to cry or any negative emotions, so I held it inside and chose to ignore it. But what happens then is that the negative emotions goes into hiding some place far far inside and soon it forgets why it came there in the first place, and this, for me, is the recipe for depression. So I think, for me, it is very very important to feel all emotions and to allow them to be acknowledged and accepted. Now I always let myself cry or feel frustrated or sad, for the thing is with me, when I feel those emotions then they go away on their own, they just needed to be felt for a while and then they disappear and I return to happiness. My point here is that for me (I feel like I am saying that a lot, but I just say it because this is just how I personally feel) whenever I feel sad I need to look outside, not inside, to understand where the sadness has come from and what has caused it. Then I tell myself that it is okay to feel sad about it, or cry, and then it disappears 🙂 ❤ I hope this was okay to share Sue. ❤ Big big hugs to you my dearest friend! ❤

      Dearest Trini.. I am so pleased you did share. and allow me to see your perspective.. Your advice is right.. We should allow ourselves the indulgence of feeling, both sadness, and anger, Love and Joy.. for all emotions are part of our experiences.. I had shut down so many of my inner emotions Trini, especially to do with Mum.. and this related back not just to her period of her not speaking in my adult life.. but when I have looked back.. and spoken with a younger sister.. We both felt unloved as children.. This impacted and I obviously suppressed it… Loosing my Aunt brought to the surface many past emotions.. And I give thanks for the opportunity it has given me in releasing them and coming to terms within my self the deep sadness I held inside..
      I thank you so Sooooooooo much for ALL of your help…
      love and Gratitude your way my friend.. Love Sue xxx

    As usual dear Sue, so true that we should practice what we preach and as the words come pouring out we wonder where they come from and I find it pays to read and reread my posts and learn again the lessons that come through me. One hard lesson I had to learn was that it is OK to fail, to mess up and to make mistakes which may hurt at the time but often are the hardest lessons to learn. When we can accept these sessions and lessons with love for oneself and with humour we begin to see the true path shining into the eternal distance. With Love, David

    And what a beautiful and wise post Sue. I personally am just being shown something in myself that I have been ‘preaching’ profusely 🙂
    You have my heartfelt and ‘knowing’ love for that journey. Somehow it seems to sting a little deeper after speaking it to others. But this also allows the wisdom of the lesson.
    This has been a big time for many, very emotional and testing in many ways. And all has purpose to explore and understand so that the beauty of what is within can be seen for the truth it portrays in us all.
    I send much love and light for this very big journey you have been on. It has taken much courage, faith and understanding to find your truth Sue…now you will give from the wisdom and beauty that you have become. Namaste

      Mark, I thank you most kindly.. Yes this journey has indeed been a bit of a roller coaster this past few years.. and it seems to have come to another head these recent weeks.. But my shoulders are feeling much lighter as I see deeper within as to why I am feeling as I have been.. And facing up to some inner truths only allows our future growth for us to reach up ever higher to connect with our soul selves… And no one likes to be shown their faults.. and I am far far from perfect.. But I wouldn’t change my path… for just look at all the good company that I have met along the journey.. And I so thank you for travelling upon my path.. I so appreciate your own wisdom.. We learn and grow together my friend.. Bless you

    Thank you Sue for articulating my very recent “lesson” in life! The “growing” pains I experience when these lessons present themselves are usually very similar. I am then astounded at how I don’t recognize what is happening sooner…and actually do something to facilitate the process. But then I go back to what I have always believed and that is that everything happens exactly as it is supposed to happen!! And maybe…just maybe…I am supposed to recognize the growing pains sooner NEXT TIME!! 😉 Much love and many blessings to you <3. I do believe the growth is worth all the pain!!

    It is interesting to see how time to pause and think over winter has generated much more introspective and thoughtful posts in a lot of Northern bloggers. Here in the Southern hemisphere we don’t have time to think, it’s almost harvest time and everything seems to be going at twice it’s normal speed. I think that taking time to centre yourself and think about where and why you are heading in a specific direction is a good idea and winter is the best time to quantify your goals (if you have any) and renegotiate your life and get ready to set off again in the spring. I think the most important thing to remember about life lessons is that they are ALL excellent chances to live, to learn and to grow no matter how difficult they are. We might not realise it at the time but everything that happens to us is there for a reason, to steer us where we are meant to be going and to give us forks in the road to allow us to choose and make this life our own. Spring is almost here Ms Sue…soon you will have those new buds and fresh possibilities. I am actually looking forwards to winter so that we can slow down a bit and gather our thoughts. The seasons play a huge part in how we feel and living in a cool climate with extended cold can often affect how we look at things.

      Dear Fran,
      I thank you… you always say the right things.. and I always sit up and listen.. 🙂 Yes I know if I had not had the time upon my hands or the long dark cold winter days had added their own gloom to my thoughts.. Once planting season starts its all go.. I do give thanks for this time I am reflecting deep within.. As past memories surface, I see the need to revisit them and analyse and learn from them..
      I loved this sentence of yours ” I think the most important thing to remember about life lessons is that they are ALL excellent chances to live, to learn and to grow no matter how difficult they are.
      This is exactly what has happened as I dug deep to the core issues and I turned up some interesting buried emotions.. which I hope I am now releasing..
      The seasons do indeed play a huge part in how we are feeling.. I so agree.. And I am looking forward to the Spring.. and New Goals, new outlooks and an altered perspective.. Life after all is a matter of how we perceive it to be.. And sometimes we need something to change our thoughts direction..
      And as we shed the layers, we come out feeling that much lighter.. 🙂 Many thanks my good friend.. Happy Harvesting.. xxx Hugs to you Stevie Boy and Earl.. XXX

        I also think that as we get older we tend to learn to be more introspective. We get a slow progression away from immediate physical needs and wants to more thoughtful pursuits. I know it has certainly been that way for me and I tend to think a lot more now about what I am doing and where I am going than I did when I was younger.

    Two things here – It made me smile because I will also verbalise my thoughts at times and they often make me laugh because often the voice that comes out is whiney and pouty and I realise what I am actually doing is sulking, not worrying! That’s not a good look for a 55 years old! And I agree with Fran and it’s something I thought last week, through summer we are too busy doing to be thinking much of anything other than what needs doing, through winter we tend to be more inward focussed. Maybe that’s a necessary part of the cycle of seasons but I know last year was my first happy winter for many years because I took the chance to create instead of my usual frustration at the weather and brooding…a healthier way for my mind to occupy itself.

        Oh Sue 🙂 Everyone is allowed to feel woe is me, life can be woeful!! I don’t mean anything so much as advice as just I say what I find helpful or my belief system, just in conversation you know. You will find your own way, I know you will 🙂 xx I also think the seasons do affect us in ways of the cycles of the seasons, Autumn a time of winding down and letting go, Winter a time of laying bare and feeling naked and vulnerable, Spring a time of rejuvenation and growth and Summer a time of fruitfulness, harvests and joy. Maybe we, as Nature does, just need to move through the seasons?!

    Nurturing ourselves is such an important part of this journey dear Sue.
    Practicing this nurturing through whatever path we may choose often helps to slow us down enough to allow tapping into our own higher source.
    Thanks for the reminder on practicing. Not sure if the desire to preach would remain if one could truly just practice…sounds like a clichéd statement but don’t they say : “when we change the world around us changes”; so here’s to practice!!!

And I used the term practice what I preach.. but I try not to preach too much 🙂 for we are all of us have free will.. But I did catch myself not following my own advice I often give out to others which I hope I can redeem by practising some more on myself.. LOL..

    Beautifully said Sue. It all links to the laws of attraction. We get what we focus on, yet sadly we sometimes tend to forget to practice what we preach. I can identify strongly with this. Sometimes it’s so easy to pick someone else up and make them see gratitude, yet we ourselves sometimes could use a hand to guide us as well. 🙂

    Thank you:) I need this so much right now. I have a feeling of an urgent need food change of direction in life.
    The thing I feel is a bit sad is that all wisdom comes to us during life and that we get a bit more close to ourselves during the years. But we become old before we really feel comfortable in ourselves… I guess this process moves a bit quicker if we work for our personal development and with our inner selves and that is a good thing. We have the opportunity if we just chose to see it.
    Have a wonderful Tuesday!

      Throughout our lives we are continually learning to be more comfortable in our skin. Sometimes an event in life gives us the opportunity to move forward as we learn and grow… Time is speeding up it appears right now, as so too our progress in the form of our Inner lessons as we awaken up to ourselves seems to occur more regularly.. And as we wake up, we are given opportunities to move forward even further..Some as you have rightly said, just need to see those signs and then make their personal adjustments .. Its a very interesting journey right now.. 🙂 thank you so much for your wise comment. x x x

    Sue, walking the Higher Path is sometimes so crazy difficult especially when we are dealing with family. Your statement “we must practice what we preach” hit me like a ton of bricks. I’ve been going back and forth with a sibling, voicing my honesty in how I have been hurt by a certain action, yet due to my “expectations” I created the hurt. Wanting someone to understand the place I stand is not possible, and for me to understand where the other person is standing is not possible unless there is open and honest conversation. Due to being taught on NOT expressing our Truth, most in my family, including the one I had the interchange with, does not know how to let the walls down to be freely open. I got hot around the collar, and expressed myself in a very brisk way. This secretiveness and this distance and this closed off Heart found in so many of my family, makes my Heart weep. Yet I succumb today, letting this all go, knowing the Path I walk, I had to fight with everything I have to get. Seeing Truth, Sue, is sometimes unbearable. And so I bow my head in Peace, and quietly withdraw, allowing the space the others are used to. I hope I made sense. It’s been a tough ride. (((HUGS))) Amy

      And our lessons keep on coming.. As we step back and view ourselves and make adjustments as we realign ourselves back on the path of our own truth…
      We can not find another’s for them, they have to make their own discoveries and with that, like upon our own journey there are many bumps and bruises along the way.. Looking back at my own past I see so many errors of judgement.. and yet I have to also learn that they too were all part of what make me ME.. So I have to be grateful for ALL of life’s lessons for ALL of them are part of making me who I AM.. ❤ and You who you are .. ❤ Love to you and thank you for sharing xxx

I’ve worked so darn hard to stay in the Light, to listen to the Truth my Heart tells me, and to walk it out. I really am better off with some family in my Life. If they are not willing to grow, it is not up to me to do it. And believe me, they do not want to hear what I have to say either. So, Niagara Falls has come at the Perfect Time in my Life. xx Amy

    When i meditate i feel a sadness deep down inside me. It is a solid thing. Even my bones are sad right now. But there are moments when the sun shines through and i smile and i laugh. BUT i am allowing myself to feel this sadness and not like i would have done previously and push it down, push it away and hide it. A friend took me out to lunch today and i was telling him about this sadness and he just warned me to allow the sadness to overwhelm me and that he was never far away if i needed him. He is right. It creeps into my meditation like a darkness, but in my life i search for the light.
    Thank you for this Sue xxx

      Dearest Barbara.. wise is not how I have felt I can assure you over this issue. LOL.. In fact I felt as if I was going 3 steps back instead of forward when I first cracked the inner shell once again!.. As the emotional gates opened up the rawness of past hurts..
      But I am discovering this was needed for letting go of deep seated ingrained emotions I have kept buried.. And I am learning to go with the flow of them..

      Many thanks Barbara for reading and for rebloging.. I so appreciate that you think my posts worthy of passing along..

      Love and Blessings.. And I hope too you are feeling better and stronger within your self..
      Love and Hugs ❤ Sue xxxxxxx ❤

    So, what we’re not changing we’re choosing! As you say however, not so easy to act on that. I think I’m choosing trouble right now! Far too much new tech’ all at the same time, sorting it all out is pushing me over my sane limits!! It’s also used up all my wi fi data for the month and added another tenner to the bill and my phone is also at its data limit thanks to a billion updates for everything! So safe to say I must be choosing this fate and need to act on your words in this post lol 🙂 In the meantime I will continue to turn into a quivering wreck whilst trying to negotiate too much new tech’!! The laptop is awesome but has cost me a fortune in extras and Sunday I managed to wipe out my gmail account losing all my bookmarks in the process…stress!! Gibbering wreck! Sorted it out now and it’s syncing across all my devices for the 1st time ever which is cool so mindset has fractionally improved…so long as I don’t go near the new mobile phones lol See? I’m working on what you’ve said in a round about slightly questionable, but well meaning way! I’m now going to gibber down to the kitchen and hope there’s no new tech down there to reduce me to a quivering jelly!! Hopefully I will get to answer outstanding comments on mine tonight but not sure how much more online time I can handle tonight lol – my mobile wifi device has been telling me I’ve used 18GB data in 24 hours and I only have 5GB for the whole new month! I know it’s lying but very bad for a calm and positive mindset lol 😉 Excessively long comment this…better shut up now lol thanks for a great post, as always, big Wolfie hugs 🙂 xx

      Sending Hoooooowwwwwlllllls your way Wolfie…

      Yes that’s the only problem with a new computer, is that half of the software is no longer compatible.. I found that out to my cost too when I transferred to my laptop…My old PC was Windows what ever number LOL.. and my laptop was Vista.. Little did I know that half my programmes didnt run on Vista.. And if I change now its back to Windows some other Number LOL..Good to know we are keeping the technology alive and thriving!..

      Sorry to hear you have had so many problems.. And yes, maybe therein lies a message for you among the ‘Signs’ you are being given LOL..
      I loved hearing about them all and Loved the long comment.. 🙂 Hope you have a Great weekend Wolfie and get more megabytes to play with..
      ❤ Love and Hugs my Friend…

        Finally got the tech about sorted Sue 🙂 Even got the smart watch fully functional after a night of cursing and swearing at it. User errors as it turned out lol nothing new there then! You’d be on Windows 8.1 now lol but unlike Vista it’s backwards compatible with most older programs. Vista terrible like that wasn’t it? Cost a fortune in replacement software! I’m still having to update a lot of apps but hopefully, as my connection is metred that will quieten down soon. 😉 Hope you’re weekend’s going well – it’s windy and rainy here. ..naturally since I’m trying to get washing out to dry lol load no.3 is underway so hopefully rain will stop before it’s ready…tho I guess since it’s not going to be exactly dry anyway lol won’t matter! Wolfie paws will get cold and wet tho!! Take care Sue and keep posting those great posts! 🙂 x xx

    The vidio was a perfect choice.
    The photos of the little hands nested in the big ones,
    the boy and the dog.

    I am thankful you took me to this video.

    To know and not to do is still not to know.

        It is a really good video and when we feed our mind on wholesome nourishment we flourish.
        When we dwell on the chaos in the world we become depressed.
        We can do little to change the outside world but we can have mind control and stay serene, in balance in the midst of turbulence. _/\_

    Life is not an instruction manual, so beautifully thought out. Indeed there is no such manual which will smoothly guide us in your journey of life, it is a constant learning and it is all in our attitude and how much gratitude we show to others.

    Yes, our body is the vehicle which carries our thoughts, we have to keep our body relaxed and we have to nurture our thoughts which keeps coming day in day out and separating the good from the bad, keep the mind on the positive track and ensuring that it comes to track when derailed due to tragedy and unwarranted incidences in life which keep coming and going and it is how we face it, how we solve is what matters.

    Problems are an integral part of our life and living, acceptance is the first step in solving the problem.Unfortunately we resist and it keeps persisting…the art of solving the problem lies in accepting the problem with all its humility and with a balanced mind, the solutions are in most cases reside in the problem itself, it is only for us to be calm and look at the problem in a rational manner rather gets lost in the emotions.

    Indeed Sue, as always a very inspiring and motivating post…

      Dear Nihar..
      Always your comments inspire and uplift.. Thank you
      Yes each problem holds within them the lessons, and we are given the tools to learn from them.. Stepping back from oneself and seeing why I was so affected has also made me re-visit my past, and see things again from a New perspective.. And I feel lighter for the experience..

      Thank you dear Nihar.. I so appreciate our interactions..
      Blessings Sue

        Dear Sue,

        Indeed, life is bundled in our perspectives and perceptions we carry and develop over the years, how we unravel and interpret these dimensions make us life and living comfortable, successful or difficult and a failure…
        Past is such a part of our life on which we just cannot do anything but by reflecting on our past we can learn so many things, depends on what we want look at our past…

        Life is perhaps all about how we face problem and how we solve them, there are few are master in solving and there are others who struggle in grasping the problem and constantly complain about it…

        Always my pleasure interacting with you and leaning so many things from you…you keep motivating me.
        😀

          Such a pleasure Nihar.. to know I motivate.. And yes life is about learning, growing and moving over the obstacles to obtain a higher vibration.. We chose Earth School as we are given more opportunities to progress faster… Even though it may appear we move slowly through this denser vibration of matter and material.. 🙂 Our time here is of much value in our progression back to source.. 😀

            I didn’t have much knowledge on the power of vibration of energy that controls our thinking and life, by channeling and targeting it properly we can harness the untapped energy and discover new avenues of growth and prosperity for self and for others…
            I am trying to learn more on the power of energy and vibration that controls us…
            How do we overcome our obstacles and keep going in life…

I believe in signs and indeed this must be one of them. Sending you much love and let’s get ourselves back up and keep moving forward. HUGS for you! xxoo

    Hi Sue!

    It’s my Absolute pleasure to read (in response to ‘Thank you for reading’ in your blog post! I wish I had time to read more… but the good news is I know where to go…when I want to connect, even if I already feel connected! I am so grateful for our connection ❤ Really and really ❤ Some things stood out in reading: "Learning to nurture oneself instead of chastising oneself" and the part where you laughed! Oh yes… this is one when to laugh 'with oneself' 🙂 When my names changed, I found that I couldn't internally call myself a name to chastise myself anymore; that was a relief! My identity had shifted. I became Ka. A sound that would teach me.

    This WP community is the loveliest place. It's easy to lift myself up from books, and get online and read posts, and then make sure I go outside… the hardest thing: is writing my own posts. But, it seems to happen! Isn't it amazing, isn't it, Sue, how spring is almost here… and soon you will be posting about your garden again?!

    We are looking for a house. We are in base-building phase: foundation, foundation, foundation. Same with my studies. So much going on…and it's all pretty good. A bit of the heaving-lifting aspect of study, though, memorizing and testing… like drilling, you know?

    Much Love to you! From, Ka

    My reading of this post brought me a sense of excitement and playfulness. Thank you! I need to keep that alive while I work.

      Dearest Ka I am pleased my post both excited you and sparked that inner child to be playful :-D.. I can so agree about the wonderful WP community of friends.. Yes Spring is almost here.. The Sun has shone today Ka.. and some of my crocus bulbs are in flower, while others are just pushing their way through the ground.. And they remind me we all go through our dormant periods of laying in the shadows..

      I am so Happy for you, and you sound as if your life is full, and I am wishing you well with all of your studies, though I doubt I could stand all that memorising and testing … So wishing you extra well with all of your tests..

      Your comment brought a huge smile to my face.. and And I am laughing … Maybe I should change my name.. 🙂 LOL….
      Love and Blessings your way.. and I am certain your excellent writing skills will deliver more wonderful posts for us to read..

    You may experience negative thoughts in your mind at times Sue.
    But there is certainly no negative thoughts in the words you write,
    Your negative thoughts are yours to interpret, but your positive words are yours to share.

    This post resonates so much right now: as I’m packing and wondering where it is that we’ll land in the near future, finishing up at my old job and making the transition to the new one, it’s easy to forget to be still and take some time to just be. Thank you for your words, dear Sue.
    And you know what else I love about coming over here? That you talk about anything and everything as it relates to leading an enlightened life. That’s my hope for my blog – whether I keep the paid one or make a free one. I’m starting to think about the idea of starting over. I’m not so sure I want to do that…but I’m not going to worry about that just now. Hehe. Must think in the present. 😛

    Sending light and hugs your way, dear friend! And I promise to be in touch!
