Nap, then hour-long meditation. Not pushing this despair away. It is for the good. I see my attachments. Not completely willing to let go, but knowing that peace is just beyond this anguish.

X put my dog to sleep. I wanted to take him home to die naturally. She got angry. I told her I didn't appreciate her keeping my dogs from me during separation & divorce. She threatened to call cops.

My kids were w/me. Her bf was there. We were mean mugging one another. Not my finest moment.

My four legged friend returns to the Mystery that created him.

Love 1
4d ·

My children cried, especially the boys. I let them grieve fully and was reminded of words from a friend that helped me when I grieved, 'Our emotions are our gift for being human.'

Love 1
4d ·

A dark day. Disappointed that I wasn't aligned to my better nature and a better shepherd for my children. Wasn't the time for bickering, but, truly, for letting go.

Just when I think I've transcended pettiness, the little Self asserts itself and disappoints.

Sorry for the loss of your good friend and the grief your family is suffering...and your internal strife. Grief is good for children, though...for all of us, it's good to be sad and mourn a loved pet, as hard as it is...

Love 1
3d ·

Definitely. There is a beauty in sadness that I hope they will express fully and freely. When we hold our emotions in, the pain can assume physical or psychological form.

Loosing pets has always been hard for me. Can't imagine how furious I'd be if someone kept mine from me and/ or put them to sleep. I'd totally lose my ***. Might get violent. I feel ya.

Love 1
3d ·

yeah, I was more disappointed, disgust maybe. Curiously, part of it was disappointment with myself. I could've been more diplomatic and forgiving. Oh well, there WILL be more opportunities w/the 2 of them.

She descends into littleness & suffers anguish of the Soul. Her Inner Guide points her toward Light, but she is invested in darkness. The intensity of her suffering is proportional to her investment.

Yes. Tragic. What a loss. We could recognize his beauty and contribution, but he could not see his own worth.

With bag full of fruits, nuts, and a few veggies, I walked. Came upon a man resting on a cardboard box. I thought I would be the one walking until given shelter and fasting until given food...
Love 1
15 Apr 2018 ·

but I lacked the resolve. Still, my one day out was not a failure. My heart is filled w/compassion for the refugees, homeless, and others whose lives are beset with uncertainty. The man waved to me. I waved back and crossed the street to greet him

Love 1
15 Apr 2018 ·

He was old, thin, and toothless. I asked him if he cared for some fruits and shared what I had. Hmm, maybe I was meant to serve others. Maybe I had this trip figured out the wrong way. We talked for some time. Interestingly, I was on that side...

of the island looking for a church I was invited to attend. I couldn't find it, but partook of the truest Christian practice with one of God's beloved sons. We talked about God, but the beauty, for me, was seeing God in the form of a fragile man.

Love 1
15 Apr 2018 ·

I recognized the divine in him and bowed to the Light that was in him and me... and you. May we all recognize our Oneness and beauty and divinity in this lifetime.

He also contributed to my needs for connection- connection not only to a fellow human being, but to the Divine that resides in all of us. It was more meaningful than many of the other exchanges I had with people that day.

Love 1

hey, Binks. I was thinking about you on my stroll through Oranjestad yesterday... and I see you posted. I love when that kind of magic happens.

Love 1
7d ·

As for the interaction, it was meaningful to me on many levels: it wasn't superficial. The man had a deep faith, a beautiful soul and twinkle in his eye when he spoke, plus I got to give what I was hoping to get from others.

Love 1
7d ·

I was hoping someone would offer me a bed or a meal, so know what it must be felt like to receive a meal unsolicited. He didn't ask, but I was receptive to Spirit and approached him.
