Hello and welcome to day 2,
It actually amazes me that I made it back here for day two of my blog! Day two ! wooo big deal! well it is for me..... I forgot completely until about an hour ago that I was even writing a blog. How could I forget that I made a commitment to myself to write a blog for 120 days? ( I don't think I mentioned the commitment yesterday, ahem) if I wasn't choosing thoughts then I could have entertained all manner of miserable self-deprecating thoughts about forgetting, when actually forgetting to me (ever since I began thought choosing) is a sign of a good day, a wonderful day, a day spent 100% IN THE MOMENT! and what beautiful moments they were too......
My partner and I went on an adventure, we went somewhere new, we went out into the nature and the fields and the woods, we walked in a neolithic henge monument called Gorsey Bigbury, I imagined all the generations between those neolithic builders and me, lined up smiling and admiring each other. We climbed fences and walked in mossy woods, we smelled the moist decaying carpet of leaves and felt the deep silent earth beneath our feet. Halfway along our walk my partner heard voices and stopped and looked with his binoculars, our friends had come out to meet us; entirely dressed in camouflage I spied them in the distance and asked "how do you know its them?" and Dan laughing replied "through my binoculars!"
AHA !!! Here was another opportunity for me to self-depricate, but NO!!
again I was so in the moment that I even forgot the binoculars.
What a delicious day we had! I carried my baby up and down hills, through the mud and finally across a stream to watch some pot-holers emerge from an opening in the ground - the universe answering the question I had just posed "I wonder what that is? do people use it?" and other curiosities, and finally back to my car to drive home and eat a delicious dinner with my favorite people and celebrate together the coming of the new year and the light.
So YES I did forget about my blog and I FEEL GOOD ABOUT IT!!!!!!!
So, many thanks to my lovely friend who texted me to thank me for starting my blog yesterday, I call that SERENDIPITY, such a funny word, it always sounds angelic to me, but the definition is rather more mundane - the faculty of making fortunate discoveries by accident. Unsatisfied by that definition, I went on to discover that the word was coined in the 1800's by an author called Horace Walpole, he took it from an old word for Sri Lanka - Serendip-, and an old story in which the heroines made discoveries by accident and sagacity of things they were not in search of. I had no idea before this that one could just make up words? but creation is an incredible thing.....
So where am I going with this? I believe that things which are often attributed to serendipity are actually some magical response to good feeling thoughts generated by the human brain. so I will leave you now with some words to ponder over:
In Aramaic, the ancient language spoken by Jesus Christ, the word Satan literally translates as "Crazy thought" - Satan is a concept which has caused all sorts of problems for all sorts of people
and secondly that the Japanese word for thinking which I can't currently remember, its something like Kam guru, translates literally as - "to return to the realm of God" -
So its all here in our language; let us choose beautiful thoughts to bring beautiful feelings into our minds and bodies, we know when a thought is CRAZY because it feels that way too, let us RETURN TO THE REALM OF GOD in our minds and bodies and live the beautiful life we deserve.
I am grateful for my wonderful woodland day
