Grateful for our Guests

For those who have been keeping up with my Parenting Workshops at Drug Court, here is Session 3 of 4.

On a personal note, two major points of interest occurred this week in preparation for this class.  1.  My mentor suggested that the purpose of my teaching this class is for me. (Why yes, of course).  AND, my reason is to better understand the human condition.  (Yes, Oneness with All; Universality).  2.  I made one giant leap on my “mystery” book.  It’s a mystery because I don’t know what it’s about.  AND, at coffee this week with my support hive, I discovered a clue:  it may not be all about me.

Not Busy and Not Sorry | Mindfulness

Heaven's reflection on Earth

Heaven's reflection on Earth

Thank you to two dear friends who are learning to live and love more fully, and sharing it with others.  One has simply summed it up for us:  “I am not busy, and I am not sorry.”  And the other has beautifully written it in a poem.  They essentially say the same thing.  One may resonate more clearly for you, so I share both.
