With Love Not Aggression
This piece made me feel very uncomfortable. I am uncertain the wife's actions were wise, and seemed not non-violent to me. Especially that children were in the car watching and experiencing what was being modeled. Second, calling the other driver a villain, also does not seem non-violent. We don't know what we don't know.
Gosh, I would need to take a breath and choose my response carefully with so much and so many lives at stake. With love, always. Liz

I've learned that it is incumbant upon me to share what I've learned. That I have a moral and ethical obligation to pass on to others the wisdom and truth that I have been so graciously given. I usually embrace this responsibility with passion, rigor and joy. But sometimes I feel self-doubt and uncertainty. "You Must Shout From The Heart" gives me permission to just do it anyway! No matter how it sounds! Whether I'm right or wrong! Perfect or messy! I realize that all that is expected of me is that I go out and do good. To help one other soul. So, I committ. I join you, right here, right now. And I will go shout this from the roof top, from my heart!

I've learned to allow and love my laziness! After suffering for years with unnecessary panic and guilt, I now 'lean in' to my laziness because I know and trust myself. As my personal history shows, my lethargy or exhaustion eventually passes and my engines rev back up and my work gets done. I know this. I trust this. This trust helps me 'lean in' to the laziness and give my self, guilt-free the moment or hour or day to recharge and practice just being.

I like physically touching the earth, sitting in my shorts in the warm fragrant garden earth in the sun, weeding, thinning... the little plants, walking in the garden in my bare feet, breathing in the essence of the new life, amidst the sounds of birds and little flying bugs. I love touching the new bark of the aspens, like baby skin and the soft spring green needles of the fir trees, sitting in the grass beneath them lost in the miniature world of twigs and moss, stones and new grasses and wildflowers. The earth wants us to take the time to exchange our love for her...

When I was a little girl my mother told me that our two biggest blessings are health and happiness. It is important to focus on our blessings, hold gratitude in our hearts for all of our gifts and to see God in all life. From the simplest things, whether sweeping a floor or baking bread, gardening, or walking in nature, we are doing it for God. Every interaction is a conversation with God. If we allow that force of unconditional love to become us and live through us we have gratitude for all things. It's all always perfect and a gift for our highest good. When we surrender to that higher knowing and listen to our intuition we are always guided by miracles and our life becomes a miracle. Spend time in nature and with natural beings like animals and trees. Notice the peace and love everywhere. Think about every little aspect of creation -it is all a miracle!
