Daily Affrimation/Prayer


Prayer/Affirmation:

I pray that whatever is not of my divine path will dissolve and dissipate, even if it is the very thing upon which I stand. My true calling is revealing itself to me* always, so that I may continue forward in my journey of perfect health, partnership, wealth, and self expression. I give thanks to Infinite Love, Wisdom, and Life Simplified for making it a reality.

drip
drip
drip
down my
cheek

foot
and I am pure, once again,
from the dirt of my
perceptions
of reality."

rumination #7044: relationship wholeness


I was thinking....

Usually, no partner is absolutely ideal, every relationship comes with its fascinating growth challenges. It's inevitable. To work with those challenges consciously and deliberately allows the relationship to grow, the relationship must maintain an open channel of communication and balance between partners willing to cooperate and not 'act-a-fool.' To let these challenges pass unnoticed is to become a slave to habitual responses, old arguments, and other crapola which lasts until the relationship ends.

When I think about my long-term intimate relationships, my observation is that I sometimes tend to become a unit with my partner, which is good until I lose my individuality. A great deal of compromise occurred, particularly when I was with my fiance' and dreams and hopes could have been sacrificed--at worst, they were deferred. I've acted in a way to please my partner, but on the inside experienced a sense of stress that comes from not expressing deeply felt, innermost truths. This is not only my story, but the story of most of the women in my small family.


In a relationship, each partner needs to be centered, and i'm learning, their primary committment should be to that inner connection. Even if only one person has that connection, surprising transformations can occur in others. When that connection is strong, all other relationships are just as strong as the connection, and the ability to communicate and listen is strengthened.

I'm also learning that a level of honesty, individual wholeness, and self-awareness is required, a genuine will to self-improve and to be loving....forever, forver. amen.

I'm walking in the rain with no umbrella despite the fact I have one safely tucked away in my yoga bag turned huge purse. This is my usual stilo 'cause, usually, I don't have one. I always forget to check the weather or grab my umbrella so I 've gotten quite used to getting soaked. This time it's a short distance i have to go--just walking a few blocks and there are awnings to pass under so I'm not concerned about being soaked. Soon, I'm walking along steady and absorbed in my own thoughts.

I'm deep in the midst of rumination #6,080 when I suddenly realize the rain has stopped. It has stopped not because it has ceased to rain but because a small, rather wide-eyed Hispanic man has decided to share his umbrella. He is standing to my left and when I look at him in quiet surprise, he merely laughs in greeting. We walk along in silence for a few paces. I'm a bit stunned and unsure of what to do or what he wants. I look at him again and notice the arm not holding the umbrella stops at the elbow. He says to me in broken English, "It is bad for you to get wet". " I know" , I reply. He then says to me, "You seem sad". "No, just minding my business." There is an awkward pause. I really wanted to be alone, but I suddenly became touched by his gesture. He tells me in broken English that he works security at a nearby grocery store. It strikes me as odd that a cheerful one-armed man works security at a supermarket, but mmmkay, such is life. I point to the umbrella he holds over my head. "Not necessary" I say, "Gracias" "Okay, pretty lady" he replies. He then tells me again that he was just trying to help his fellow man. How sweet! "I know." I say. "I know". He takes his happiness with him and bounced,no-- literally bounced, down Ponce de Leon, smiling every breath of the way.

I am in the rain alone again, deep in my thoughts. I couldn't help but to think what a beautiful movie scene that exchanged would have made. I'm thankful that I didn't turn away from him, instead chose to walk along with him-what a metaphor for life, eh. Surprisingly, I enjoyed our short time.

I wonder what it is about real life that turns things around like that when written life, lets say in a book or movie, would have no problem finding the beauty.

this was a moment for my nikon.

open diary: 0001


The passion that makes me who i am on 11/01/06 is that the sun radiates within my heart. I feel joy in my body. I actually feel my core vibrate when I'm still.

I feel a visceral silence within, its essence can only be described, but not captured, by words.

People are loves, and although I don't understand them, they all are special and I appreciate and am entertained by their personalities, with both their great and not-so-great traits, and just try to accept how they are without trying to change them, as I expect the same from others who never understand my seemingly unpredictable behavior. How perfect.

As I enjoy being myself, I'm more often than not, enjoying being around people, and as I am peaceful and silent within, others come to a stillness as well. They relax, its a healing and transformational space, which is so necessary among people.

Seeing it work again and again encourages me to continue my practices, to remain on this path, and to go ever deeper. I embrace my nature and enjoy facing the patterns within that color and allow energy to just simply flow freely.

Because I know that in doing so, in being the genuine fullest expression of myself, that through me a healing joy and light-hearted inspiration comes to the world and loved ones in my life.

I know that in doing so, that the burdens others feel are lessened, and that in treating myself and each individual who crosses my path with silent and loving acceptance, the world is improved.

In doing so, my life is fulfilled right now, nothing remains to be done, and I am free to just be, as of 11/1/06.
