The subject of The Light and bringing in the Light has been a fascination of years for me. There, of course, are endless ways to explore this. However, I will share just two fairly recent experiences.
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”
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?”
Yes, yes. I’m still here. My silence on this blog fails to convey how often I have thought about writing. The other day my friend Marion Z wondered why I have not been writing. That slipped some sort of gear in me and here I am. But, I hasten to add, as has happened before, that I decided to write and see if in the process I can discover the answer to my friend’s question.
One reason can be attributed to fast, unforeseen changes in my life.
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. Continue reading “#32 One View About These Times”
How to begin this attempt to unravel my preoccupation of these days. Of the several strands and ongoing levels of experience, there is only one I feel moved to address right now. No matter how much I want to distance myself from all the venomous words flying around in our political arena, I have only brief times of success. Most challenging to me is the lack understanding, from my point of view, about what is at stake in this election. Continue reading “#31 An Expression of Deep Concern”
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”
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”
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”
Freeing myself from the molasses like strands that hold me to outworn, outdated, habitual thinking and ways of being, is much on my mind these days. We of course realize that, knowing and doing are not the same. I value them pretty much equally. Roberto Assagioli’s (founder of Psychosynthesis} caution is relevant to remember here.
