Acceptance

As a tribe of one, I move quietly, peacefully, to extinction.

Gardening Update

Daffodils

Daffodils and grape hyacinths

Crocuses and Irises

Path to Peace

The garden is starting to take on a look. Bulbs are growing and flowering. Bees are buzzing, peace is happening. I’ve sown the wildflower seeds and sweet peas too so they should come up sometime in summer. I did get an extra few daffodil bulbs from a friend who was moving and wanted to keep the. So they’re on loan until they find a garden worthy of their presence.

Meditation “types”

8-September-2016

Hmmm. Meditation. An interesting pastime. Not sure if I can “do it” though. I’ve tried. It just doesn’t fit with me. I might try Tai Chi as a form of meditation. Gardening is a good one. Also, walking but they’re not sitting there, thinking about nothing. Emptying ones head. Perhaps I’m not supposed to empty my head. Perhaps I’m not that “type” of person.
I do know, I am I. 🙂

Taoism. Is it me?

16-August-2016

I like this article on Taoism. Perhaps because it almost fits the way I think and therefore I can comparmentalise myself.
I especially like the summary. It clearly defines some nice guidelines:

  • Taoism is acceptance of your life.
  • Taoism is following your breath to find peace.
  • Taoism is opening up a smile to enable possibility.

If you embrace these three ideas, everything else follows in Taoism. Some people do start here. Others take a longer more colorful path. That’s fine also, since you get to experience more color in your life. No wrong path exists at the end, since it’s about experiencing life.

Perhaps I shall read up on some more. Pick out the bits I like and add them to my belief structure, if not there already.

The Road Less Travelled

12-May-2016

“Why do you take the road less travelled?”

“Because it’s the unknown. It’s adventure. It’s challenge. And what of you?”

“I take it because it’s quiet. It’s solitude. It’s peace.”

Peace

Peace is at the top of my list now.

Passion

28-April-2016

A friend asked me what my Passion was. After no time at all this is what I came up with. I really didn’t have to think. Something that allows me to touch my emotions.

1. YOU
2. LOVE
3. PEACE. Stopping and smelling the roses. Being in the moment. Feeling the now enter my being. My soul. Sssssh.
4. MUSIC. A well crafted song that brings tears of sadness or a feeling of power. That someone could create something so strong and beautiful as to reach into my heart.
5. COMEDY. A well written joke that I had no idea where the punch line
came from that leaves me no choice to laugh aloud. The proverbial pie
in the face routine.

Bulbs


With it being Autumn, it’s time to plant some bulbs for spring. Hyacinth, daffodil, muscari, iris, crocus, ixia and freesia. 400 bulbs ready for planting. I’ll also move some gladioli. See how it all goes. Looking forward to this weekends gardening. Relaxing, out in the fresh air. Breathe….

Solitude and Mindfullness

17-March-2016

I think this is perhaps where I’m going. What I’m looking for. Not necessarily inner peace, although they seem to suggest the same thing to me. Perhaps they are. That I find inner peace on my own and in contemplation.
I loved the article in Psychology Today “The Call Of Solitude” by Ester Buchholz.

Solitude. One man’s story

Wow! What a great article
