This morning I received a notice that someone posted on the blog. This is someone I don't know. When I typed in the web address for Angeles Arrien, it must have triggered her web-site in some way of notice, since she has a competing one. She has her view of the Tarot. My interest in Angeles Arrien has not revolved around the Tarot so it is interesting to read this other web-site while also feeling a bit invaded.
I have realized that I barely keep a private journal anymore. Everything goes here. I am happy to share, so why do I feel unsettled this morning knowing someone has read it who I do not know, and I know that is true anyway, as friends have passed the address on, but I still had or have an image of who is reading it. Anyway, I suppose I had to know it would open up. This isn't China with censorship of the web, right? I was just a bit unsettled this morning to see that someone I don't know has posted on the blog. I do have the ability to close it to just those I want to read it, but I don't want that. The point of this is openness, and so, it is.
Also, many of you do not like the word "blog." My friend Vicki calls this journal "Cathy's Heart." Perhaps, that is more user-friendly.
My thought for today is this. Thich Nhat Hanh says, "A tiny bud of a smile on our lips nourishes awareness and calms us miraculously. It returns us to the peace we thought we had lost."
If you are feeling troubled today, curl your lips into a smile. Any trouble will be cuddled, then fall away.
My dream this morning was of a wonderful baby boy who knew all the answers in a most succinct and astute way. I honor the emerging wisdom of my animus as it joins with my anima today.
Great love and care to you all!!
I have a full day, so will return this evening full of fresh air, good conversation, more radiation and horsey smells.
