"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'.

My friends and I got the room we wanted at uva. I'm here in Boston in a hotel, it's our family trip for this summer. I'm gonna go work out now though.

Later,

Matt

So far its been a very relaxing summer. Much, much more relaxing than last year. I've been enjoying working in my garden. Even though I haven't been here as much as last year I think of all of you a great deal. Sometimes tells me that much like last year I'll return with a flurry come this fall. Its great not to have any emergencies that have to be dealt with and I hope it continues for a longtime to come. :knockonwood:

I blew off the work I was supposed to do last night and treated myself to an evening of soaking in the tub, reading Eckhart Tolle and meditation, plus playing with my ducks. :uquackmeup: I'm feeling moire alive than I have all week.

I spent a lot of energy over the past two weeks worrying about something that turned out okay. I imagined every worse case scenairo and wondered about what kind of statements were being made. In the end the only statement that I think really matters is we are all human. A very important lesson to learn.

I have three days off this week as compensation for three months of hell. I'm not sure this is a fair tradeoff but I'll take whatever I can get. So far my day has consisted of reading the paper from cover to cover, talking with my son and messing around on the computer. I could get used to this new lifestyle :band: Now I'm off to putter in the garden.

Last night I allowed myself to reach out to a member of my local Friends Meeting. I guess I was seeking wisdom, support and love from someone who I know has faced a lot of demons in her life and has lived to tell about it. She kept telling me that while I'm at a very important junction in my healing journey she beleives that I'm on the right path. We talked for almost three hours and I felt safe, it was good to have someoe tell me that no matter how much it hurts its going to make me a happier, more complete person.

Hey all,

Just finished UVA orientation and got my course sign-up done. It's a relief to finally be "in". Now my friends and I have to plan everything for move-in day.

I said this aloud at therapy this morning. "I don't believe I have ever seen my Mother happier than she's been during her time with Arnold." It felt good to say this because in my heart its the truth. My Mother is like all others and is doing the best she can. She deserves love and happiness and I'm glad she found it. :loveya:

Saw "I, Robot" with my roommates yesterday. Will Smith is the man, in pretty much every movie he's in!

University sh-t is coming together. I played tennis twice today too, the exercise is helping me stay sane.
