Good Morning Sunshine!

Musing on what to say. “Pondering!”

Today? I began with clearing out the emails, OMG they add up from doing the blog. But I can take a look at the blogs of others this way, however, they do fill it up! I don’t want to lose anyone, and if it matters regarding following them. Not sure how that works.

Today’s cards: #1 Card. ” The spiritual journey is one of constant transformation. To grow, you must give up the struggle to remain the same, and learn to embrace change at all times. Hmmmmmm_____. I often think of what it is to be spiritual. I would say it has to do with being one with the great consciousness we call God.

Being spiritual has to do with love and acceptance of others I feel, belief in this same great consciousness, and feeling a part of it. It has to do with how we carry ourselves and act towards others. Feeling connected with others is a part of belonging to great consciousness. I think this includes understanding that others are like ourselves. We make exceptions or want an exception for ourselves when we fail to do what is right or proper___ It is true we are all accountable for our own words and actions. And so if we are, we can expect others to be accountable as well. The thing is it is their learning curve. We are not all at a good point at the same time. The learning curve is called that for a reason, and changes, good changes don’t happen until we clearly see why we should change. We all have emotions___anger____ Hurts! Letting go is not an easy task___until we find positive answers there we are! We expect people to see the light right away! But they don’t anymore, any quicker than we do. No one can not wait for change forever. But we simply need to understand people may not be on board, things too often take on a course of their own! So what do you do? Set boundaries, and give others time to learn____. Here I think of my ex and our experiences. It is obvious we came to a certain point in time, where thins ended. It needed to end better than it did, This said in time I began to look at him in new ways and that made it better for me. I came to realize these new conclusions were mine, and he was separate from me with his own conclusions and self-talk. That self-talk seems to be the problem. Not being able to talk creates problems. It often becomes something unsolved. That is sad when you have children. And if it feels like side taking to be with either one of you. (This happened with Me and Bill and our kids. You lose out because it gets complex fast. This was years ago for us. Kids are adults now.) They say hindsight is 20/20. So it is.

Cars #2. “If you go deep, that is where you live. You live in the seat of consciousness. A true spiritual being lives there, without effort and without intent.” Wow! I like to think this is true of me. Why? Because I am not afraid to explore feelings. At least this is what I tell myself. I can’t imagine a topic I could not address regarding myself. Perhaps there are some? Well, may I find those things and face them. there are times when I feel I think too much, so I want to change how I respond to things. The time I spend in thought perhaps. I want to be more discerning. I want to look at things in new ways. With a fresh head and heart.

Card #3. I love this one! It is very freeing! “There is nothing more important to true growth than realizing that you are not the voice of the mind____you are the one who hears it!” This train of thought, belief____realization is very freeing as it lets thoughts be what they are, just thoughts! I don’t have to do anything about the thoughts, the less I respond to them and replace them with new thoughts, the better I feel about life!

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
