Waking up


Don’t underestimate yourself.

You have the ability to wake up.

You have the ability to be compassionate.

You just need a little bit of practice to be able to touch the best that is in you.

Enlightenment, mindfulness, understanding, compassion are in you.

Very simple practices – such as meditative walking,

mindful breathing, or washing dishes mindfully

– make it possible.

Thich Nhat Hanh

If when you are stressed for one moment you can shift from your thoughts of torment or restlessness or other scripts and just bring your attention back to your heart and the breath touching base with your inner child with wisdom and compassion you may find that a doorway opens in and through which you are released to peace.

Staying with the breath or just gently noticing when you are taken away from the breath by thoughts will help to calm you, just a little.  Showing your heart compassion may help you to access deeper emotions that thoughts may have kept buried.

"The religious naturalist is provisioned with tales of natural emergence that are, to my mind, far more magical than traditional miracles. Emergence is inherent in everything that is alive, allowing our yearning for supernatural miracles to be subsumed by our joy in the countless miracles that surround us." Ursula Goodenough How to describe oneself? People are a mystery and there is so much more to us than just our particular experiences or occupations. I could write down a list of attributes and they still might not paint a complete picture pf Deborah Louise and in any case it would not be the full truth of me. I would say that my purpose here on Wordpress is to express some of my random experiences, thoughts and feelings, to share about my particular journey and explore some subjects dear to my heart, such as emotional recovery, healing and astrology while posting up some of the prose/poems which are an outgrowth of my labours with life, love and relationships. If anything I write touches you I would be so pleased to hear for the purpose of reaching out and expressung ourselves is hopefully to connect with each other and find where our souls meet.
