"Out beyond ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing there is a field. I'll meet you there." ----- Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Balkhi-Rumi, 13th century Sufi poet.

"Have faith that people do their best. I don't know anyone who would eat with pigs out of a trough in a muddy barnyard if he knew that a well-prepared meal was on the table in a clean house - do you?" Greg Baer

"The Secret in healing Narcissism is not to heal it at all, but to listen to it. Narcissism is a signal that the soul is not being loved sufficiently. The greater the Narcissism, the less love being given." ~ Thomas Moore, 'Care of the Soul'.

I hope everyone here had a safe and happy New Year's celebration. :uquackmeup: I spent the evening with family and friends in a quiet reflection of where we've been in the past and what we hope 2005 brings. It was a nice way to welcome in the new year.

I look forward to another productive year of healing within this community!

Winter semester begins for me on Wednesday. This is both a good and a bad thing. The real hightlight is that I'm actually enjoying spending time with my family during the break. I've not really had a chance to understand why (maybe this is a good thing?). All I know is I hope it continues.

I actually cleaned my room and made my bed without anyone nagging at me. Not bad for any normal 37 year-old. Next thing you know It feels good not to be a total slob, even if the change is only temporary. :npdhumor:

I had my monthly kick-the-tires session with my diabetes doctor and he said my numbers look great, I'm a model diabetic :cookiemonster: He says that I should continue my diet and pretty much do what I've been doing. It feels good to know I don't fit the model for a type II diabetic.

My husband has inivted the entire family to join him at his next therapy session. He believes we have issues in the family dynamics that need to be worked through. I'm not entirely sure what he's referring to but at least on the surface its a reason to be hopeful.

I spent yesterday afternoon with a parent who was furious because they had lost custody of their child due to repeated problems within the community. I listened as the parent blamed the schools, little league coaches, other parents, the police, the courts, our agency and others for all those problems. Not once did he suggest there might be issues within the family that needed to be addressed to empower healing. At the end of this talk I did not feel angry at this person because I understood that he was crying for help in his own way. I see he is not ready to receive the help that he is crying for and I cannot make him heal. The only thing I can do is listen and not judge him for his pain. Its a good feeling, maybe a step toward giving and receiving love? :partyfrog:

I listened to my body complain about working 60 hours last week and I decided to treat myself to a day off to just hang out and enjoy the snow.

Heal NPD: Re: 1,000 positive stepping stones on the path to healing ( 22:46:11 ThuJan 13 2005 )

spent yesterday doing a literature search going back 2 years in one journal
just to update myself. i just read and read and read until my brains fell
out. hadn't worked like that in ages. all the new zealand stuff done, one
international journal out of the way, three more to go. i can see that i can
update what i started my studies in so long ago pretty well and quickly. not
much has changed in terms of the theoretical waffle.

I feel as though I've moved to a new place in my healing where its not my objective to deflect everything said about me and try to place it on someone else. It feels good :frowntobiggrin:
