Life Long Learning


Isn't it great? - I mean the fact that we are never finished learning about this life business.

I had a session yesterday. What should be obvious often isn't. And vice versa. I can't believe what's tumbling out of my head. Stuff I hadn't thought about in years. Linking previously (to me) unrelated events. And sharing. And it's astonishing how he can weave a tapestry out of all this.

Like the man says, terrible losses can open up every single loss in one's life. All over again. Fresh. Or for the first time if they've never been looked at before and dealt with. I'd rather deal. For what happens is: every creative stream inside is finally set free and becomes "magnificent in its flight". We shall see. The pieces of every sorrow are gathered within us ready to fracture again when a new loss is inflicted on this huge ball. I wouldn't have believed it until it happened to me.

Plus insight. Example: living life like a stereotype, a cliché, for most do. Automatons, told how to feel, desire, behave, respond, accumulate, judge, terrified of anyone who marches differently and thinks tangentially. Never for me, thanks.

Maybe we need to be more like metaphors. Ha!

Happy New Year 2016 to all you duckies out there. Keep waddling and quacking.

Breathe. Feel. Learn.

  2. I must say I don't see you in any way living life like a stereotype. You always seem to be very much your own person, following your own instincts and desires. Long may you do so!

    1. Never Nick. The style police would arrest me for non-consumerism and flouting of their behavioural rules. And speaking up.

  4. All the best to you, and hopes for the new year. Myself, I'll settle for a year of stasis, without surprises.

  5. I have an excellent shrink too Wise. He doesn't mind me calling him a shrink. Also reading a very good book by Harville Hendrix. He is a minister but don't let that put you off. A lot of talk about how troubled minds meet and can help troubled minds. Sounds better than Neurotics attract doesn't it! He and his wife are also is on the web although I haven't looked at the site much yet. COME ON IN 2016 - WE ARE READY FOR YOU!!! SHE'S COMING FROM THE EAST COAST OF CANADA!!

    1. I tend to not read non-fiction Betty as I have enough reality checking in my life. My preferred mode of escape is fiction. I love crawling into a good book.

      Best wishes for 2016 my good friend.

  6. Sounds like an interesting process, one I'd like to hear more about when the spirit moves you.

    1. SJG I honestly thought this whole process would be cleaned up in a couple of sessions. I've got no idea how long it's going to take and I feel more enlightened and creative and open each step of the way. Extraordinary really.

  8. The way I deal with all of this is to have a day side and a night side.
    Happy New Year from one blogger to another!

  12. I love reading about your process through all the changes you are experiencing. I think maybe you reach out even when it doesn't feel like it because your authenticity attracts people to you. You have so many interests you can talk to anyone about anything. I wish you all the best things in 2016. I have a good feeling about this year ~

    1. Me too - that good feeling is blanketing me at the moment, Sharon. Thank you for the kind words, I do strive to be authentic, I can because of the anonymity which is a good thing, :)

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
