Ommm Simplify: You Be You

September’s theme blog for the gang at the Storm.  Go see what they have in store for the community this fall. When I think of simplifying my life, I think purge and purify.  Purge my life clean of what I no longer need.  Take on no more of what I do not want.  And purify that new found space by filling it with things I love. Simplifying my life, however, won’t necessarily make it uncomplicated.  Life is complicated by its very nature.  Always shifting, always in motion.  My simple life will be busy and active no doubt.  My shift towards simplicity is more subtle; a bit deeper than shedding activities or junk from the closet.  I do not seek to make life less complicated. Life it what it is.  Rather I intend to make my response to life less complicated. First, much like tackling my closet, I will organize my mind.  Get it aligned with what I desire to do with my life.  Discard the thoughts and their patterns that block or confuse my path.  And train my mind to seek out the thoughts and patterns that can lead me where I want to go.  Practicing my brand of simplicity  will require diligence and discernment.  Lord knows this world isn’t always steady and neither am I. But I figure if I allow my mind fertile ground to cultivate only positive thinking, my response to life can only be positive.  My thoughts, quite simply, are the seeds of all my words and actions.  With my mind well acquainted with my higher self, and organized in such a way that I can access her quickly, I am more likely to answer any difficulties with … Continue reading

This is a test. This is only a test.

Mean people suck.  Twelve year old mean people included. I just started meditating again after taking a little hiatus.  I was surprised how easily I fell back into it.  I thought for sure it was going to take me the … Continue reading
