Gillian I hear you! When we become more mindfully aware, we stop trying to fix the inside (which is really already whole and complete) by manipulating and controlling the outside.
I am doing the 100 day mindfulness challenge and it stopped Saturday at day 48. Nothing Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday or today. I checked the junk folders, etc. Do you know if it will resume for the last 52 days. I have sent 2 emails to ask. I have purchased the scripts previously. Thank you!
I shared a new blog today on my site, and I think it sort of speaks to this week's question, which I believe can be interpreted in several ways.
Here is the link and I would love to hear your thoughts as related to the question of the week, as well as the contents of the blog itself.
What a beautiful painting and wonderful exercise! I really enjoyed this. What stood out to me was the woman in the forefront, and the light cast upon her. I also noticed the animals, which appeared to be escaping... and the two figures on the ground, which I could not make rational sense of. The dark sky enchanted me, offering a feel of mysticism.
Excellent mindfulness practice. It has sparked an idea for my next Question of the Week, so thank you for that as well!
Thank you for sharing this @Morning Dew. One thing that struck me was the observation that you received more support from strangers than friends or family. In a way, it is paradoxical, but I can see this happening. Strangers, who have no preconceived ideas about someone, may be better able to tune into the suffering present without their own stories/assumptions/expectations.
It's wonderful to hear that you wrote about this experience. Did you find that helpful with the healing process?
