I have a sorta new friend. Actually, better put – there’s a woman I really don’t know (cept I bought some of her handmade shoes which would knock your socks off they’re so cool – whose blog My Dispenza Days I’ve been reading. If you saw the movie “What the Bleep Do We Know” you might recognize the “Dispenza” part – he’s a chiropractor quoted in the movie (which is, among other things about quantum physics – EXACTLY my type of movie! Truly!).
Anyway, in Sara’s blog she talks about ways in which to change one’s consciousness. I can relate so much to what she’s written. And it’s all served as great reminders to me to WAKE UP! To get out of my rut. To, as Ram Dass said back in the day, “BE HERE NOW.”
So, while I”m here with you now, at my keyboard, and have been ‘making my rounds’ online, I made a big point tonight of doing many things differently from when I walked in the door from work (later than usual) til a few minutes ago.
And i’m noticing how happy I feel. How a brief, but dear visit to the peeps I consider my local “fambly” (my friends Di and Bill) and getting some little non-online chores done tonight and a big bowl of cantaloupe (I’ve gotta say – YUM) all conspired to get me fully embodied into this HERE and this NOW and it was good.
This theme seems to be popping up a lot for me of late – I’ve written about it more than once in my blog, I’m getting the message from Sara’s blog. Even work conspired today – the meeting at 8 am on “What are we going to do about the French site” suddenly wiped out the work I thought I had to frantically complete between now and Friday and suddenly my smarter-than-you-can-even-imagine co-worker Kiran was able to help me work on the virus on my personal laptop between our other chores.
A more interesting challenge for me – and one I’ll be thinking about – is when do our GOOD habits get in our way? Shall I just throw prudence to the wind and not floss my teeth for a while, feeling its become too habitual? While that’s a silly example I think the underlying question is worthy of my attention.
And Sara’s blog is worthy of YOUR attention – pop over and have a look
And then look for ways to ‘mix it up’ as just one of many ways to BE HERE NOW. Can’t hurt, might help.
