One day last week I was sitting on my meditation cushion, singing along with a chant by Krishna Das (“Prema Chalisa” on his CD Trust in the Heart), and I glanced over at my new journal cover, which I had previously felt lukewarm about… But in that moment while singing and staring at my journal cover (that I decorated myself), I felt myself falling in love with it… And suddenly I realized that the hummingbird is sipping from a closed flower. Oh, the symbolism!
We each have beautiful, positive, healing nectar inside us, even when we are feeling closed! And… when the flower opens… Oh the juicy joy!
Today I am definitely feeling my flower-self opening. I am in a celebratory mood because this morning I finished writing the first draft of my next book Reaching for Orange: Practices, Visualizations, & Blessings to Help You Happy Up Your Life. Tomorrow I will begin the happy revising process! (To learn more about this next book, please read “Double Coffee Days Ahead.”)
While focusing intently on finishing this book I am only blogging occasionally, but I tell you what, my binder in which I keep blog post ideas is swelling. So many inspirations are coming that I’m about to burst… I can hardly wait to get back to regular blogging!
Next up will be a post about the Sunshine Blogger Award… 🙂
