Currie's Gratitude 2 December 2013

Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue. [Buddha]

I am discovering I still have a LOT of growing up to DO. I don’t know why I’ve assumed this would NOT BE so necessary, yet I am seeing that without making the effort Now, what could BE ahead on my path mightn’t BE too JOYous.

We have to confront ourselves. Do we like what we see in the mirror? And, according to our light, according to our understanding, according to our courage, we will have to say yea or nay - and rise! [Maya Angelou]

The place I call BEtween a rock and a hard place is Right Here. In the mornings. When I DO Writing Practise. When I show up and choose to see clearly, to bring Light to the moments of my Life. I could easily sleep in and NOT write. I did so for years. And years.

But here’s the thing, I have come to count on myself to show up, to write, to BE willing to see clearly. To shine my Light inside myself.

It is quite the adventure.

I love you, Currie

That's honestly my goal in life--to be the light. Not an easy task, but working at it and paying attention one can keep the light longer and longer at a time and get back to it quicker. Great post! :)
