Ummm I didn't get to dressing my walls as I planned but since I thought it's Halloween today I did dress myself up as an evil cupcake. At the same time these are normal every day faery clothes so whatevers I'll get to dress up again tomorrow :)
I've been reading The Book of Awakening by Mark Nepo before sleep and this touched me last night:
"There is a wind that keeps blowing since the beginning of time, and in every language ever spoken, it continues to whisper, You must meet the outer world with your inner world or existence will crush you. If inner does not meet outer, our lives will collapse and vanish. Though often we think that hiding our inwardness will somehow protect or save us, it is quite the opposite. The heart is very much like a miraculous balloon. Its lightness comes from staying full. Meeting the days with out heart prevents collapse."
And this is the accompanying exercise:
"Center yourself and breathe slowly and deeply.
As you breathe, feel your lungs fill and empty like a balloon.
As you breathe, realize that your heart is filling and emptying itself of an inner air.
During your day, let this inner air meet the world whenever you feel overwhelmed."
So whether it's Halloween or just the day before or any day in any galaxy, let's meet it with an open, fearless heart balloon! Because why not! Those are my pumpkin words of wisdom. Now if I can just find candy that's not full of blue 1, red 40, gmo cornstarch, dextrin, high fructose corn syrup - and other poisonous crap - the trick and treaters in my block will get something else than trail mix which I'm beginning to doubt will not cut it. I was out looking for candy today but forgot where Whole Foods is, that was a problem. I need more sleep maybe :D
