"Thought is the sculptor who can create the person you want to be."
- Henry David Thoreau
I like that. I am enjoying an amazing morning. Jane and I spoke, inspired. Jane just attended the Search Engine Conference again, and she always leaves motivated. She was tossing out ideas quickly this morning and so we are on a new tack. We have a "list," created by Jane.
I had breakfast with Karen Roeper. She is busy with her work which you can check out at:
All of what was discussed this morning relates to connection, peace, the pause.
Marion Rosen recently gave a summary of her work, which I will take a piece of and further summarize.
She feels the spiritual aspect of Rosen work is related to the diaphragm, the bridge between the conscious and the unconscious. When the diaphragm releases, we surrender; we trust. In that letting go physically in the body, that "allowing" the natural swing of the diaphragm, there is a knowing we don't have to do it all by ourselves. In that knowing we don't have to do it all by ourselves, that inner acknowledgement of support is where we feel close to what some call "God." There, we let go of ego and there is grace, the place where we live embraced.
It is a continual dance to balance being and doing, and, for today, my intention is to let go, surrender, and trust in the workings of the universe that bring me in touch with you.
On another note, I saw a Great Blue Heron this morning. I watched him pull feathers from his chest. It is the seasonal molt. He dropped the feathers into the bay like bottles with messages inside. Who knows who will pull them out?
A little boy saw a truck that was blocking a driveway. I'm sure drivers were cursing, but the little boy was waving at the truck driver. I want to meet this day with that much joy, interest, and delight, the joy of a two year old held lovingly in the arms of "mother," for that is how it is, when we allow.
