Architects of a New Dawn

We’d like to show the side of the world you don’t normally see on television.

I have had a very interesting past few days. Getting involved in things again, which made me realize again how the best things in life are not things. I was invited to a wooden boat show to sell some of my nautical collections (including some of my original illustrations such as "Divina,the golden dolphin"). It was a lot of work for not much money, and helped me realize that I have the same "dis-ease" as my collector Mother. This was dismaying, however it helped me express more forgiveness toward her. I used ho'oponopono very sincerely (very deeply I must say in my newly found awareness) - "I am so sorry, please forgive me, thank you. I love you." over and over, as I realized my attachment to things is toxic also.

I am waiting now for someone to come help me un
load rental truck, and my body is sore and my spirit is lifted as I learn to have equanimity ( meditating daily) despite doing something I don't like doing - moving "things". It helps me realize why I appreciate a monastery/ashram so much - being away from attachment to things. Now I will simplify my life by selling and giving away alot of my objects(and meditate even more).
So I see this time as a new realization and beginning to a more simple life. Hard lessons but karma, I suppose!

in the spirit of loving Oneness,ron

My love for you will always be, forevermore, throughout eternity.

Congratulations on your growth. Equanimity is one of the great keys to life! Not an easy one to get either. ~
Thank you, William. The equanimity I am improving on is a direct result of Vipassana meditation usually one hour in AM & one hour in PM. I sleep better also.
I credit my more balanced calmer mind in helping me to drive the remaining truckload and selling the whole thing (minus my originals) to an antique dealer and allowing them to empty it - saving me from expending more energy and lightening my spirit as well. May all beings be free, ron
Sounds as if you are doing well my friend. If I were closer to SC I would come help you unload that truck but I have a feeling you will have help. Good post.~Namaste'

Thank you, William - here is my quote for the day:
WORD FOR THE DAY(gratefulness.org) by Myrlie Evers
Saturday, Oct. 24
I have reached a point in my life
where I understand the pain and
the challenges; and my attitude

is one of standing up with open arms
to meet them all

Thank you, Nadine. Divina is the star of my book Sailing and Swimming with Dolphins. She pointed me to all the Golden Rules of the religions around the world. I was going to attach them, but they are not on this computer yet. I will have to wait till I get back home Monday. I am on my way to pick up my nephew to take him to UNC/Asheville to introduce him to Vipassana meditation. I hope he is attracted to it? One Love, ron
Taking Responsibility For Everything
Sounds like she is the Prodigal Aunt. SHE abandoned uyoui emotionally, nopt the opther way around, but I'm so happy for you that all is going so well. L.

thank you, L., I have not thought of it like that, I am just glad she has forgiven me for what she "thought" I did. We are all one anyway, so the Ho'Oponopono prayer for forgiveness does not make a difference. A few months ago, I left this prayer on her message machine: "I am sorry, please forgive me....thank you, I love you!" I keep praying it as needed - often and it works!
in gratitude, ron
