Good Morning Sunshine! What Mysteries come from today’s beginnings?

A reminder of sunshine today! Look like it could snow outside!

The Michael Singer cards today: “Your God is in ecstasy and there is nothing you can do about it. And if God is in ecstasy, I wonder what He sees when he looks at you?” Gheeeeee! Whiz!!! Well, I assume it means that God is happy. I argue with this thought____over if God is a he or she….. I think of God as a presence that encompasses both attributes of masculine and feminine. I believe God is within all of us. that makes sense.

#2. Card. “True personal growth is about transcending the part of you that is not okay and needs protection.” I like how this is said. I like finding such statements which sum things up like this.

#3. Card. The purpose of spiritual evolution is to remove the blockages that cause you fear.” I have hated to admit to my fears at times. But by acknowledging them I find I face them. I think of my successes where I looked at my fears in new ways. It is amazing what restating an idea will do. Just one word makes it a whole other thing. Like not using the word “try” ___I change the “I will try to do it statements I have and can use. It forces me to make a commitment. A change in me! I can go to bed and say “I will try to write my blog in the morning!” When I think about this, it is not a commitment. And for me, I am setting myself up with an elusive choice. Saying “I will get up and write.” means something very different to me! I plug other things in, like cooking or doing dishes, the trash for Friday. Saying I will try to do these….well they need doing. And if I am to be the artist, and have success. I can’t just try. I need to do the work! I need to put myself into action.

I am being tougher on myself, there is no one parenting me, no husband in his role. Just me now! Even with him here there was me to deal with. What I mean by tougher is making sure when I get up I wash my face and comb my hair, and begin the ritual of taking care of me. Do I do this perfectly every day?____No. I work towards consistency. I make sure to do 2 to 4 things and these start off everything else! The day may be “later” No beating myself up about anything! Habits. I change habits up by adding purpose to them.

On the weekends I pick up the house for the week. This allows me to work. Both writing and art are sedentary so I make myself move more, and do some necessary things before going back to work. I do stretching exercises now. I am adding cooking homemade meals. Doing the laundry in between writing and the dishwasher break up sitting.

May your days be days where you take the lead! Shape those days! “Don’t Worry! Be Happy! (Song.)

I live in Southern Maine. I am the owner of Anisette Studios. My website is https://www.anisettestudios.com/ Here you can view and purchase Shibui, sign up for my newsletters, blog, and read articles about Shibui Found Image Art. Patrons get great deals several times a year and special items at times. My site makes it easy to contact me. My primary art form is Shibui Found Image Art. Shibui begins with action art and stems from the imagination. It is like seeing something in the clouds or solving a puzzle. Its creative process has its own rules and requires what I call reverse engineering due to a lack of an understructure and purely out of the imagination. In addition to those who patron me, my target groups are those who use art therapy. I will soon be teaching live. Contact me if you would like to learn live. I use Zoom. I request that although my art, other images, and what I write is now published by me here on WordPress; I do ask you do not to use my artwork, poetry, or the information about Shibui Found Image Art without my permission. I am quite available to make such requests. I wish to share the following: The existentialist philosopher Simone de Beauvoir wrote a book called The Ethics of Ambiguity. In it, she lays out a guiding ethic in response to the philosophy of existentialism. It might be somewhat familiar to you already. She writes, “To will oneself free is also to will others free. This will is not an abstract formula. It points out to each person concrete action to be achieved.” Best wishes to all! Have good times and keep safe! Pejj
