#36 Making a Commitment

After seven years of following my inner guidance to become a member of the Religious Society of Friends, Quakers, I recently gained some insights about that experience. It has been seven years of many inner and outer major shifts and a decision which has brought me only joy. Early on I kept saying ” I’m so happy”, even though looking from the outside things looked the same. Internally I felt filled with Light and a sort of Continue reading “#36 Making a Commitment”

#35 What Is Inner Silence?

Last Sunday we celebrated my inspiring, sparkling friend Joan’s 90th birthday. As we were taking leave, she told me to write another blog, that she found them useful. When Joan commands (very gently), I obey :))

In my last blog, I mentioned my urge to move forward into new vistas. I kept telling myself that I must find a way to get more quiet inside, so that I could be more receptive. Well, let me tell you how that unfolded. Continue reading “#35 What Is Inner Silence?”

#34 The Relevance in the Present of Past Experiences

We often say that, it is important to learn from our past experiences and lessons learned. And while generally I still believe that, recently I find myself wondering about this. It has all come about because I find myself wanting to put everything I have ever learned, taught, believed, behind me. Not rejecting any of it. More like toys I have played with, which are now worn and shabby and no longer hold my attention or interest. Continue reading “#34 The Relevance in the Present of Past Experiences”

#32 One View About These Times

Like all of you, I too have been caught up in the tumultuous happenings in world and naturally, especially, those right here in our own beloved country. As time has gone on and on and on, (it seems like forever),  I kept thinking I would feel better if only I could make some sort of sense about what it all means.

#30 Standing in the Unknown

 

The frenzy, to share what I keep learning, is gone. The motivation to blog has taken on some different shape. Not sure exactly what that means. I do know that it reflects yet another shift within me. These changes seem to keep speeding up. What is all this adding up to you might ask, as I do ask myself. Since I don’t have the answer, I decided  to honor the urge to start writing this blog and see what wants to be written, if anything. Continue reading “#30 Standing in the Unknown”

#29 The Surfacing of the Refuge

The guidance of yesterday is as unexpected as the previous one; the one which led me to realize that I was not to conduct retreats as I have been for many years. With that direction being clear, I have been searching for clarity about the next cycle. In that process, I found myself floundering a bit and even touched a worry place about my security. Continue reading “#29 The Surfacing of the Refuge”

#28 Releasing Old Forms

Finally, a concrete movement of enough significance to focus my energy in a clear direction. The concept of releasing, letting go of what is completed or outdated is one which has been with me for many years. It is basic in the Ageless Wisdom teachings of which I am a student. Here is an example of my most recent experience demonstrating the release of an old form. Continue reading “#28 Releasing Old Forms”
