I am an endless journey...

I have a little book, called "Inner Wisdom, Meditations for the Heart and Soul - by Louise L. Hay". I love this book, and had to dig threw 8 boxes to find it (it was cleaned and packed after the fire)... Whenever I (or a friend) is going threw a rough time in their life, I sit with the book, think about the issues and open to a random page and read the affirmations on that page and meditate with those affirmations threw out the day. The book as always been accurate as to what I am going threw, and even tho I think its out of print, everyone should have one!!!
So this is the page that I opened up too just now this morning, after thinking and stressing about my apartment fire, and broken laptop (among various other things).


The book reads:

In the infinity of life, all is perfect, whole, and complete. The cycle of life
is also perfect, whole, and complete. There is a time of beginning, a time
of growth, a time of being, a time of withering or wearing out, and a time
of leaving. This is all part of the perfection of life. I sense it as normal
and natural, and though saddened at times, I accept the cycle and rhythms.
Sometimes there is an abrupt ending in mid-cycle. I am jarred and feel
threatened. Someone dies too soon, or something was smashed and broken.
However, I know that life is ever-changing. There is no beginning and no
end, only a constant cycling and recycling of substance and experience. Life
is never stuck or static or stale, for each moment is ever-new and fresh.
Every ending is a new point of beginning.

I think it does fit very well to whats going on. Life IS ever changing, no beginning, no end, just the cycle of life. Its normal and natural.

Gotta run, get my day started! ;)

Embrace the Journey

It makes me wonder if you're meant to start over again on this new journey? Like letting go of stuff is a part of where you are at right now so you can pay attention to being here now.

Oh I love how you described your house, "creeky, leeky, ghosty walls"...fantastic! I have a 70s full split, not what I envisioned when we decided to move out here.

Ah! Yes Suzie! I totally agree! I think this whole process in my life has been gearing me up to start over. Losing my apartment, my things, my laptop, I think its all urging me to cleanse and start over again. I started a body cleanse in the spring, and I think this is just a continuation to it. It's funny, I've been thinking about moving, a big move, but I've found it hard to detach from my things, and my family... Maybe the universe is starting a new journey for me!

I was doing some research yesterday and found out that feverfew is very good for people who have been struggling with accidents, from bee stings to dog bites...carry this herb to protect you from all sorts of accidents. Yay! I'm so glad I remembered to tell you. :)

Sorry I keep posting here, LOL, but wanted to say that Futurama rocked! Oh it was so much brainless fun. And I truly help the feverfew helps. When I go through my crazy phase of having accidents happen all around me, I will start carrying it around with me too. I hope it helps!

Greetings from Toronto!
I love that book, and I think I even have a copy...is it Louise Hay?
I believe that we are always right where we should be on our journey...good or bad, and sometimes circumstances occur to set us on the right path again.
There is a lesson in everything according to the Universe.
Take care!
I am off now in search of trendy new age stores!

I think it's so great that you can stay positive and philosophical when things are rough. That can get you through a lot!

Thanks for stopping by my blog, I'm glad it prompted me to come over for a visit. :-)
