Life as an adventure


What happens when we no longer cling to the belief

that we need to be free from problems?

Pick one small problem that you have (and don’t want)

and ask yourself what it would be like

if you could actually say yes when the problem arose,

moving towards it voluntarily, consciously and with curiosity?

This is not a masochistic attitude;

rather it’s the actual (and often gentle) willingness

to stop pushing our experience away

and demanding that life be different.

When we learn what it is to say yes to a difficulty,

to be curious about what life is,

our whole world turns right side up;

it allows us to experience life

more as an adventure than a nightmare.

"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.
