Hello Again Dear Friends!
I've been away from this Blog long enough! I must say, I wasn't expecting to see the replies that had been waiting for me since too long ago. I have just replied to them first and it feels good to have more direct relating!
I was coming to the Blog to pick up where I had left off in Part 15 Re:
“The End of Suffering” quote I made from Thich Nhat Hanh.
Here are a couple lines to begin Part 16 with:
“The miracle happens...
A smile is born on my lips
Following the sound of the bell, my breath brings me back
to the safe island of mindfulness
In the garden of my heart,
the flowers of peace bloom beautifully.”
My prayers and affirmations for peace continue. I am continually thankful for the Course in Miracles and the small group of four of us who began the course together some years ago. Although I didn't continue with the group I continued with the lessons and completed all the lessons! That was a yearlong course and it became a part of me, Thank God!
One of my main affirmations is” All I want is Peace/ All I need is Peace". And most recently I have been simply declaring: "Miracles!” "I expect Miracles!” Right now I'm hearing this in the spirit of a high school sporting event where the cheerleaders get the school to chant a phrase and "my" school's mascot had three syllables to it which happens to be the number of syllables to Miracle. I can just imagine a football stadium filled with souls chanting "Miracles Miracles .. ..." (If this word program could only include music notations I'd include the percussive beats more clearly.) However, I'm usually making my affirmations and prayers in a rather quite way, (but not always). And I believe I mentioned before that I often declare: "This Holy Instant" and that really brings my attention into the gift of now, this present holy instant! And when my attention is right in the now, the holy present I find "the miracle happens, A smile is born on my lips and my breath reminds me of the peace that is growing in my heart! This is bliss! A very gentle, serene state of being! This is all I want, all I need.
And I still claim miracles, "I expect miracles", as they are the necessary corrections for those parts of my mind that await the source of my continued healing.
I see miracles in my relationship with work! Working in the world has been a life long challenge for me ever since I was about 17 when my dad told me after I graduated from high school that I had three choices: "get a job, go to college or join the service." Over the past couple months I have been in a program for "career change" called "The Oxford Program" and I now know that what I want to do in the world is really a matter of Who and What I Am! And I'm a Healer! That to me is beyond some "job". My struggle over the years has been largely about discovering who and what I am and then a few weeks ago in one of my Truth Salons I spoke out that I Am A Healer! And since then I have been waking-up to myself as a healer. That's rather miraculous to me. The power of the word and especially that of the spoken word! I was speaking up in the Truth Salon about the idea that the Salon is not for the purpose of "fixing" any one and that statement had been made at several different times in different salon meetings. I had to say that speaking the truth is healing for me. This is my therapy! My doctor (My Higher Self) has given me a standing prescription of truth telling. I didn't say that last line in the Salon but I'm saying it here. Truth is my medicine and I'm a medicine man who is taking his own medicine.
Well, since the Salon I have suddenly, (without much thinking about it) wanted to come out more in my healing work and I contacted a local massage school to see what support they offer to get practitioners connected to clients. In the process of doing that I got the school's catalog and, "lo and behold", I found a listing for CranioSacral Therapy (CST) Training, which spoke to the Healer in me in a big way! That got me onto a several day search for CST schools and now I am considering starting a CST training with the Biodynamic School started by Michael Shea. What I have read on that school speaks so deeply to me in terms of the spiritual nature of this work that I then realized this is it! It is a Spiritual Work that I want to do in the world and Healing is very much the heart of that spiritual work. I also saw that all the other interests that I have in all the arts could support and compliment the healing work. And so now I have an awakened center of healing in me I am most grateful!!!
It's now 1:42 AM and a good time for me to head for bed. As I was anticipating, I will want to return to continue this in Part 17 ASAP.
Later My Friends!
