I heard a bird.

 

Sharon’s introduction to our week 4 encourages opening our attention~ taking a step away from limited attention.

I have been reporting often in my blogs about the sensations of anxiety I feel my body, the river of doubt that runs in my mind, and the discomfort I feel with what I might bump up against in a day. Opening my attention. Let go. Thank You for this, Sharon. I feel excited. I feel my hand on a door knob that could lead to a room of treasure. I feel like the week ahead I could go from being a blind folded swimmer to opening my eyes and seeing what really is below the surface.

This morning as I sat. I heard a bird. I wondered it’s name. Then I heard it’s call again and the response to it’s call and then the entire forest around me in full orchestra.

I notice how when I ask the bird’s name I close the door to hearing it’s song. Today I will continue to reread a script I wrote. I want to read it to hear it and see what needs filling or emptying.  I have been having a hard time hearing it through my judging and editing mind. I will encourage myself to open my attention and see what’s there.

The day after

Playfulness
Curiosity
Openness
Forgiveness
Acceptance
N O W
Isn't it really all about accepting that we are made in the image of God
and are therefore perfect for our journey here- If we are still enough and trust we can begin to
see thru the veil and know that perfection or we can get caught in the muck-
Today and going forward I want to raise my consciousness and find the quiet
to know my wholeness-
