For The Love Of A Tree 🌳

Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth. They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life.”~Hermann Hesse~
Can one fall in love with a tree…..I Just Did 💚🌳


This tree 💚 This amazing, beautiful tree is located on a piece of property that I went to look at yesterday…….as soon as we walked into the backyard I could almost hear a Heaven Chorus sing.. and then, wait for it, wait for it…………a huge Dragonfly paid us a visit as we were walking the property!!!! 


“Indeed, I have long since come to know that nature feeds a woman’s soul. It rarely gives direct answers, but it ALWAYS nourishes, soothes and waters the SPIRIT, so that eventually growth occurs.


Today, marks 27 weeks, 189 days since I lost Jim. Today I celebrate the love of my amazing husband….and his gifts to me. I put an offer in on a home late yesterday, and my offer was accepted late last night. I now begin the process of inspections and all that goes with purchasing a home, something I haven’t done in a very very very long time. This is all possible because of My Jim……his love for me, and mine for him, transcends all time. I’m incredibly Blessed.  

My journey continues………


Day 4 Of My Meditation Journey 🙏 How To Be Renewed Everyday…

I loved today’s meditation over at The 21- Day Meditation Experience at the Chopra Center.

How could I not with the word Renewal in it?! 

Day 4 – How to Be Renewed Every Day

Today’s meditation teaches us that when we rely upon familiar repetition to guide us through life – instead of stepping into the ever-new possibilities of the present moment – we remain in a stale, stuck pattern of living. When we learn to fully embrace the limitless potential in the now, we are continuously renewed and liberated from the stuckness of powerlessness and blame. Living in a state of renewal then becomes easy and natural.


TODAY’S CENTERING THOUGHT


I get to much out of these…today I had a hard time of ‘just being’ as I listened to both Oprah and Deepak speak..cause I was like YES YES YES!!! Like Deepak says .. “As we connect with our essence we are re-vitalized, restored and renewed.” And we can do that at any moment, anytime!!!! BRILLIANT!!! 😊 

“I thrive in and embrace the Newness of my Now….I breathe in all the ‘new life’ it blesses me with..and exhale the old staleness that keeps me stuck.”
