My older and much wiser sister told me this morning that where I am at, right at this moment' is where I am suppose to be.
Just Be, Be Available, Be Open!
I guess like a flower?
Simple Living-Just Be, Just Be Open to the Universe, to Nature, to God's whisper & to my Inner Heart Beat. WAITING!
The book I am reading right now is "Twelve by Twelve - A one-room cabin off the grid & beyond the American Dream" by William Powers. http://www.williampowersbooks.com/
A book about a 36 year old guy, who is feeling out of sorts with American Living after living and working with the Bolivia People trying to save the rain forest. He stays in a 12 by 12 shedhome in NC near No Name Creek without electric, gas or water. http://www.tumbleweedhouse.com/ , http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SbRvsWuWNUM
New word to add to my vocabulary: permaculture farming-"the things your grandparents knew and your parents forgot," Holistic approach to sustainable landscape, agricultural, and home design.
I just want to find a place like this to run to. No phone, No emergencies, No drama, Just CALM! Imagine my surprise as I thought about this!
Well imagine, to my surprise, that I am doing just that. My sewing/computer room that I spend most of my time these last 8 months is a 10 by 12. Even though I live in a suburb, geese & hawks & bats fly over head, my waterfall sounds comes from my small home-made pond filled with 20 or so fish, and even though I don't live in a forest, I have a small garden with 5 large trees on my small square of land. The river is just a small walk away in which I can kayak in quiet solitude.
This way of life has been healing for me! Create, Sew, Paint, Write, Assist, Help, Listen & Just Be Open to what God has for me!
I am one blessed woman! WAITING-Just Being, Just Open!
