1. I share the basement PC. JOTS is fully occupied on this computer chair ... I lean up against her warm paws. She doesn't mind. Pete is done for awhile, and L won't be down until much later. Shared living expands its definition for the folks in VardoForTwo.
2. I meditate a lot. I own a very well-used portable cd player and headphones from one of our last plane rides between the Islands the Pacific Northwest. Thanks to rechargeable batteries and that cd set-up I play two of my favorite meditation tapes at least twice (and sometimes more) each day for the past seven days since Ruby was washed-out.
The cds are: Deepak Chopra's Soul of Healing Meditations and "4 Route Relaxation Qi Gong" I'm not sure where to lead you to get the "4 Route Relaxation Qi Gong". It was a gift from a friend who practices the ancient movements. Chopra's Soul of Meditation can be purchased through Amazon.com or at your local music center. I totally love the "Soul of Meditation" cd. I have been meditating with that man's voice for nearly two years and he has made such a positive impact on my sense of well-being. The tape is approximately 45 and includes several segments beginning with a 5 minute focus on 'simply witnessing your breath." The musical background is awesome Indian, melodic and mood-inducing. If you are new to meditation the 45 minutes might seem very long. What I found early on is I just drift away into sleep (I lie down while I'm meditating). Some people would cluck their tongues at falling asleep while meditating, I say, if it's that relaxing, and I sleep then there you go!
3. There's time for new messages. I found a very timely message from one of my favorite fairy messengers, Rainbow Tree. Here site is on our blogroll on the side bar. I've also credited Rainbow Tree with the entire post from her fairies, over at Makua O'o. For now, the important message I got from the fairies through Rainbow Tree during my week without a laptop is written on a post-it-note that is not affecting me ill. I'm thrilled. The affirmation and positive message is posted at my eye level just as I face the front door. It reads:
"I know wonderful people and situations surround me now. My heart is filled with gratitude."I tell myself exactly that, several times during a day and during the night; and each time I go out of the vardo; along with the excerpt a "Course in Miracles" included on the Soul of Healing Meditations that goes:
"Every decision I make is a choice between a grievance and a miracle. I relinquish all regrets, grievances and resentments and choose the miracle."
4. There's still time to write at the keyboard (witness this post) though I am at the keys much less, and I suspect my body and the EMF that course through my system appreciate the break.
Life in Everett goes on and I'm filled with gratitude. What happens to your life without a laptop or computer?
