Thoughts


I've been writing about myself and my spiritual experiences, one in the same, for a little over a year. The ebb and flow of my creativity is its own creature. When the urge is there, it tugs at my consciousness until I satiate it. When writing about myself, the ebb and flow goes hand in hand with understanding. Certain periods are as clear as a crystal spring, and so flow evenly and effortlessly from mind to hand to pen. Other periods are as tangled and knotted yarn, and so I must pick and pick and pick at the knots until the strength of their confusion gives way.


I've not written a thing on my spiritual past since last May. Granted, my family and I were busy relocating, but I've had considerable untangling to do, as well. This move was the detangler I needed. The urge to return to When Isis Rises tugs steadily at my consciousness, each time a bit louder, a bit more insistent, like a child.


Before too long, I will have to indulge myself.

Don't write about anything too deep or I'll get lost! Lost like a kid in the mall when his mom went off to look at unmentionables...lost like my 18-year-old virginity in that Piggly Wiggly restroom...lost like my frontal lobe.

Cute picture. That you?

Yep, that's me ... I think I was 12. It's one of my least favorite photographs, not because of how I look, but because of where my family lived at the time and what was going on. Lousy memories. Also, this photo was purloined by someone who didn't have the courtesy to ask before using it. And so I reclaim it as my own which it always was.

Piggly wiggly?

Egads!

You will do what feels right for you at exactly the right time. No memories are lousy unless you choose to view them that way. As you evolve, you will begin to see positive sides in everything.

Hello Liara, my internet stranger-friend ...

I do indeed choose to call some of my memories lousy. It didn't change that they were pivotal experiences, however ... it doesn't change that at all. I call them what they were to me as part of owning them, integrating them, and moving beyond them.

Can't wait for your book!
