Party On!

Day 2 of 2018 and here’s what’s come to me and written itself.

Need I remind you (and me for that matter) that we only have today in which to live?  Sometimes I find that time flies by and I realize that I have let days go by without living.  What does that mean exactly?  Well, it probably means different things to each of us, but for me, it means that my days sometimes are filled with mundane routine and there’s not even a small spark of newness to them.

I wonder if when the watch the reel of our lives when we get to the other side, if we will feel like that time was wasted or if we will realize that there was something important about days that feel spark-less?

Will we run through the Rolodex of days gone by that seemingly had no spark and berate ourselves?  Or will be understand that those days had meaning because they were when we were experiencing, accepting and processing life in a quieter way?

I have friends who live life to the fullest all the time.  They are busy, busy, busy – running here and there with their party lights on full tilt.  It amazes me how they can be on so much of the time.  Perhaps it is my chronic fatigue that plagues me that I don’t have that type of energy all the time.  Perhaps it is because I can become introspective and often need to go within to process life experiences so that I can come out with enthusiasm for life again after I’ve been hurt.  How do you live your life?

I love to hear how people deal with life experiences differently.  I love how relationships change.  I am an avid people-watcher and I enjoy learning about how people think and what leads them to their actions.  Connecting with others makes me happy and gives me a feeling of divine purpose.  Most of us by this age have experienced many different life experiences, good and bad.  To connect with someone who understands what you are going through because they have had a similar experience is like finding a golden nugget, especially when you are both open to share freely.

So what’s my point?  Obviously, I don’t know.  This is just another post which has written itself and I allowed the words to flow from my fingers to the keyboard.  If any of this resonates with you, please let me know.

Shine On!

Death Is A Mind Experience

Death comes in many forms.  Death as in the physical body dying.  Death as in the mind dying, which leads to the physical death.  Death as in relationships which disconnects us from loved ones.  Death as in the motivation to live.

The mind/body experience is exponentially important.  Don’t you think?

When our minds become closed, we suffer.  We allow negativity to grow and instead of outsourcing our needs, we may become sullen and distant.  Life experiences can hamper our thinking and we can easily get mired into closed-mindedness when we aren’t aware of how our thoughts are slowly killing us.  When we don’t open up to someone else, we shut the box on possibility and the noose around our thoughts and actions tightens.

It sad to see people who become so embroiled in that battle within their minds.  It’s frustrating to others who witness the demise of personality, only to be helplessly waiting on the sidelines for an opportunity to offer help.  Rebuffed when the offering stands out there, is hard for the one whose mind has closed and for the one who is gently trying to pry the box or door open just a little.

Too much focus on one aspect of life can be detrimental.  Being all-encompassing with grief or fear or hurt or even shame can lock up the mind permanently.

The mind is a muscle that we must exercise.  Like body muscles which when you are working out, must be given different tasks to build different muscles so that we aren’t lopsided after strength training, the mind requires the same.  Left and right hemispheres need thought exercises as well.  To live in only one hemisphere can be detrimental as well as self-sabotaging to our well-being.  We need to balance our brain hemispheres.

Many of us are innately more right brain or left brain thinkers.  We speak, act and make decisions from where we think.  But to enrich our life journey we need to tap into the other side of the brain too.  By doing this, we expand the tapestry of our thinking, of our life experience and make our life richer and fuller.  We live more and we continue growth and expansion which is the opposite of death.

It’s like when you try to clap – do it now.  How are you hands placed?  Now do the opposite hand placement and clap again.  Doesn’t it feel strange?  The groove of routine is cemented that we clap a certain way, but when we try to change it up, it even sounds different.  Did you notice?

Thinking and using the other side of the brain can feel like clapping with the opposite hand.  A little awkward, may feel differently and thoughts may sound odd to you, but it’s still thinking (and clapping).  If you can find it an interesting experiment, take some time to figure out what is the predominate brain side for you.  Then read about it and understand yourself a bit more.  Now read about the opposite side and see if you can tap into that hemisphere for a few minutes today.  Let yourself experience the full capacity of your amazing brain everyday.

Set your brain free and live!

Shine On!
