What I've Learned, Week 9

The front is dry pastels, Pitt pens and collage from the collage sheet I made last week. The back is a photo with two of Kim Klassen's textures with text. The back reads, "I hope to reach a point in my life where I am able to be in a crowd and simply issue blessings to all life around me instead of feeling the annoyance, the judgment of people and my own inner judging voice".

This was inspired by a moment downtown a few weeks ago when I felt overwhelmed by the sheer presence of people wound up, bustling and shoving. I was transported back to the retreat I took in July studying with Penelope Smith and an experience we had as a group where we had all been given very personal and individual blessings by a soul incarnated in a cat. I remembered thinking what a gift it had been to be there, receive the blessing and wonder if I would ever be capable of that level of presence.

Wow, that's a lot of pressure. Don't let the little things bug you! Take one day at a time!

If you are thinking it is possible, it is possible, I think. Imagine how the experience could change for you if you changed the focus from annoyance to sending waves of love out to those around you. Powerful, powerful stuff, Kimmy ! Even if they don't seem to feel it at the time, you will ! And the change starts within you, right ?
I know this for sure - LOVE is the answer to every question. Now we have to gather the courage to apply the answer...
Sending big love your way today, My Beautiful, Beautiful Friend.
(PS - love love love those hands reaching up...)
