Behold the beauty of Ceres. I am featuring her today in the companion art for today’s blog.
I was not going to write about aging today. I was heading in an entirely different direction. But tuning in to the Oprah Network set off a spark. The spark sent me on a mission to come to terms with my body and our human journey through time.
One of the things I actually enjoy about ” crises” ( and I have had my share) is that they allow me a break in the action. I feel relieved that during this opportunity ( definition of crisis), most of my problems take a back seat to resolving the matter at hand. It takes most of the pressure off. This is a very good thing.
So I am starting to take a closer look at what my body is telling me now in the wake of diverticulitis. Until today, I was too frightened to even consider communicating with my physical form. While watching Dr. Christiane Northrup today on SuperSoulSunday, I am receiving insight after insight. I am truly grateful for the timing of today’s episode. I feel empowered and supported. God bless Oprah!
I feel so hopeful and grateful for the first time in a great while. I desire there be lessons in living, and that meaning is always possible. I can see that I can look at my health without blame and/or shame. I did not make myself ill.
Many spiritual platforms, including the Course, can be misinterpreted in this regard. I have had many conversations with people about causality and un-wellness. The ideal attitude is to accept your situation, feel it, but not dwell on it or turn it into another toxic agent in your system.
” Own the pain but do not dwell in it.”
” Health is contagious.”
” Getting older is inevitable. Aging is optional.”
” Our culture tells us how to move through time. Chronological age means very little.”
Some other key points include:
surrounding oneself with positive people
build a village that supports agelessness
enjoy pleasurable activities, but not in the form of addiction
celebrate birthdays, but not milestone birthdays
do not focus on chronological age: look to the part of you that is timeless
live in ways that feel right for you; do not embrace the idea that you are “too old” to do something or be something.
This post is really for women and men, because the principles apply to all humankind. I cannot wait to read the book, but in the meantime I feel motivated to promote more healing and shed accumulated attitudes and paradigms that were nothing more than faulty cultural programming. Be part of my village so we can create a new paradigm together.
