What am I afraid of?

To be honest with you, I can’t put my finger on it. I’m fairly level headed, open-minded I am committed to improving myself. I still can’t shake the idea that I’ll be found to be unappealing, odd what have you. I am petrified at the thought of putting myself out there and opening myself up for disappointment and ridicule. IContinue reading “What am I afraid of?”

Hold On

And by Hold On I mean Let Go!, well loosen your grip just a little. Life sends us little messages in the form of how we feel or what we anticipate we’ll experience. If my experience is any indication, the more my ego is involved in the results, or if I have expectations about the desiredContinue reading “Hold On”

Preoccupied

I wouldn’t mind having a conversation with this innocent fellow. Have you ever been stricken with a sudden drastic change in appearance? One where you just want to avoid seeing or especially talking to people.  I had that happen to me last night. Eating my late night huge bowl of cereal. When I realize myContinue reading “Preoccupied”

Maturity

In light of the disastrous nature of discourse in the headlines, I am struck with the poignancy of Thomas Merton’s words in this excerpt from No Man Is an Island written in 1955 “I cannot make good choices unless I develop a mature and prudent conscience that gives me an accurate account of my motives, my intentions,Continue reading “Maturity”

Sensitivity

This composition was inspired by a post on Sacred Touches  https://sacredtouches.com/2017/06/13/when-inward-tenderness/ When our natural sensitivity, coupled with silence and awareness. A deep sorrow is revealed. I summon the courage, strength and mercy from the infinite to face this otherwise unbearable pain. Just as in the quantum realm the activity, behavior, and result is altered by observation. I have discoveredContinue reading “Sensitivity”

Justice

We I’m here, writing again about principles that I work toward living by. Today I am writing about justice, which is aligned with the 9th step. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others. For me though, the step is taking direct action out of love forContinue reading “Justice”

I’ve been Busy

I’ll soon be back to my tour through the principles I have aspired to incorporate into my being. In the meantime, I have been moving getting settled and working. I do landscape maintenance, which I am loving for a number of reasons. Number one on the list is that it’s outside. Two it is service orientedContinue reading “I’ve been Busy”

Status Update

My new place to stay. I am a roommate in the 3rd-floor unit. Yes, it’s a walkup. I was, somehow able to keep my strength, stamina, and attitude in top form. I am still unpacking and have a few items to bring, store and, or discard at the old place. Wish me luck, so far so,Continue reading “Status Update”

This is a totally random choice to feature this achievement, of which I can take little of the credit. I have followed the path of many before, who by sharing their experience, have managed to make it through a day without the use of substances to impair themselves in order to relieve  The Longing
