"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'.

Not sure why but for some reason I didn't want to go to my T session yesterday. I was set to cancel or just not show. About 30 minutes before the session I felt a sudden blast and got my ass together and went to session. I had one of the better talks with my T person that I've ever had so its good I was able to make it.

Last night I found myself in the role of a proud parent as my youngest performed at school band concert. She has much more musical talent than either of her parents. I'm not certain where this talent comes from but she works hard and is becoming quite good. A couple of parents have commented on her playing and it makes me want to shout like a peacock that she 's MY daughter. Its kind of nice having these moments that I came so close to missing out on.

I neglected to mention the really positive news of the day. This was orginally a weekend my kids would've spent with their Mother, but she called to cancel. So today my daughters are giving me a cooking lesson! I guess memories of eggs shooting across the house scared them. :rotflmao: So I'll one eye on football and the other on whatever I'm brewing in the kitchen. Shh, don't warn them about the football. :mischief:

I'm glad your learning to like to be hugged, Taran. Myself I'm stuck at the learning to tolerate it stage. :smile:

The discussion with Ken Hamilton was inspiring and has my mind racing with the excitement around the power of healing. I guess I'm just enjoying the day.

I went rollerblading to day and lived to tell about it. Not so much a positive step in healing unless you count that I didn't take any uneccessary risks. I keep searching for ways to make peace with my inner child and take time for myself. Thi was actually my son's idea. I've not decided if I'll ever try this again. I'm just grateful I'm still in one piece.

This thread challenges me to at least try and look at life in a positive light even when things seem gloomy, as they do right now. :ohwell: Yesterday this paid off as when I found myself in the midst of a parking lot in the middle of the higway. We sat for over an hour and I'm still not real sure why. My friend and I popped in a comdy tape and laughed as we watched others lose their cool. Maybe I was laughing because I saw myself in some of their behavior. It feels good to be more relaxed at least some of the time.

I was treated to breakfast in bed this morning simply because a friend wanted say she loved me. Often times love still leaves me uncomfortable but I felt something inside today. Besides soon I'm off to the stadium, so life is going fairly decent. No complaints here :claphands:

I forogot to mention that I'm continuing with some meditation stuff and I'm starting to notice some changes. I am more aware of where I am and how my body feels. I don't meditate everyday but I'm doing it several times a week. Its cool to know what's really going on inside yourself.
