Trips away from our everyday routines are good for the soul! IF for nothing else, when you get back you feel like, “Ain’t no place like HOME”……..if you don’t get that feeling when you come back home, you need to make changes in where and how you are living! Just a thought!
After a week of “recovery from 8 hours on the road for several days” the calm feeling of home returned and a good friend asked me to share “the 2 most memorable moments or days of the trip”. Without thinking “out of the blue” I answered: #1. The 4 hours in upper New York State that I sat on the front porch with a glass of iced tea with a dear friend of mine and shared our views and beliefs about Life’s Lessons. Though we have been “garden friends” for many years, we never realized that we share many of the same beliefs about religion and life. The daytime temperature was 75 degrees with partially sunny skies and a gentle breeze blowing in the friendly trees at the edge of the yard. All things/people are connected by the invisible strings of the Universe and when we take off our blinders and open our hearts we can communicate on a level of complete bliss. # 2. On the last day of the trip before leaving to come back home I spent a whole day of “just letting it happen” with no planning except just showing up with an open mind and a willing spirit. I’ve been practicing with paying attention to relating how I “feel” governing what I do and where I go. This is really an experiment with “living in the moments” and “letting our greater good lead us to the right locations and situations” in our lives. In a way it is another way of meditating. That day was one of the most satisfying and invigorating of my life. TRY IT!
If any body is interested in more details about #1 and #2 shoot me an e-mail and I’ll share more details.
Live in the moments………once they are gone………….they are gone forever.
