 I basically feel it is "inside/out", but my "inside" was formed by all the experiences on the path, so, surely my surroundings were part of the "whole shebang".  :))
I feel "most alive" when I am in my Light-center experiencing oneness with another through kindness.
On a camping trip a long time ago, I was very frightened by my surroundings one dark night when my flashlight stopped working half-way down the hill.  From that disharmony with my surroundings I was forced to face my fear, which I agonizingly did, & was blessed with the gift of increased strength & confidence .  Grateful for the gift from disharmony w/my surroundings .....boy, did I feel "alive" that night. (& elated when I was back in our tent, snugly cozy in my sleeping bag !! Namaste _/\_

 

What to Remember When Waking, by David Whyte

FaceBook  On Dec 31, 2013 Mish wrote:

When I awaken each day I center myself in Light & decide that I will stay centered, choose to be happy, share my light with others, forgive myself if I get off-center & address any "difficulty" that may present, with light.  By making this Conscious effort , I experience greater equanimity & joy.  You can "choose".  This has changed my existence.
