Hmmm… almost a week in, nearly a quarter of the way down the path of this particular experiment. So how does it feel to you? Any insights? Is the world teaching each day? It is truly freedom when we become conscious of our thoughts. When we realize that we are not our thoughts, or our emotions. We become aware. Conscious. And when we see how our “automatic” programming runs on the brain/mind computer, well that can be damn enlightening. And sometimes a bit frightening. When we discover some of the connections we make, what we make everything mean. And I do mean everything, We are walking/talking categorizing judgement machines.
But awareness is freedom, or at least the doorway. And the real trick, perhaps the real point of all of this is to realize that it’s a continual process. 30 days gets us started. Gives us a spark of consciousness. Of awareness. But really, to live in the moment and be free of the past based fear and future based worry conversations that can run around in our heads, well that requires…. are you ready? Living in the damn moment. And that requires a constant devotion to that awareness.
It’s like training a puppy… our minds are a lot like puppies. Easily distracted and peeing all over every where. That’s the nature of puppies and it’s the nature of the programmed mind. So we have to be vigilant and train the mind puppy… over and over.
But the reward is a life of happiness, joy, gratitude and freedom.

Here’s today’s image….
And here’s today’s word…
Now remember, there are no scary, negative words. What makes them that way is how we assign meaning to them and the evidence we collect to “know” we’re right about them. And we all love to be “right”. don’t we? 🙂
Your thoughts, opinions and insights are cherished and treasured. So please, leave them. The world, at least the small little part that comes by here, wants to know what you think. Really. It’s true.
Yours in changing paradigms and stirring the culture soup,
