Getting Oriented

What am I doing?

Does anybody else feel like this sometimes? I am exercising, but overeating. I am paying attention to my choices, but making poor ones. I am prioritizing rest, but then once a week staying up really late.

Reading your blogs and reconnecting with Sparkfriends, have helped me become more aware of how quickly and unsteadily I am moving. One of the ways to peace is equilibrium. I know this. I think I am going to practice this in the mornings. In addition to my exercise and tracking, I need to nourish my spiritual self. I want this to be a life-long journey to peace.


What a relief! Peace, not perfection. Peace, not perfect body. Peace. What a remarkably blessed place to live.

My goals for the rest of this week:

1. 15 minutes of meditation every morning
2. one hour of exercise daily
3. track all food
4. log on to and connect with friends on Sparkpeople

I want to express my gratitude for all of you who are working hard to love yourselves and are sharing that journey through your blogs. Particularly when you share your struggles, I feel connected to you. You are inspirations to me. You feel like company on this journey.


A simple grapefruit can bring me peace if I allow it.

    Yes it could and we can see Peace instead of this, but we don't and we get all goobered up about what we experience in life and ask ourselves WHY? Why do I continue to screw up and space out and do what I don't want to do/not do what I want to do. After all don't I want my body to reflect Peace and harmony and Love for all????

Yep my friend I can relate. However my path is a bit different than yours just because of this issue.

Our job is not to seek Peace, but to seek all the barriers we place to Peace and relinquish our attachment to them. Peace while still holding on to fears/guilt/grief/regret, etc is nothing but a band aide over a volcano wanting to erupt.

This is what causes more distress, not more Peace. Our unconscious mind has 3 parts: 1)the voice for fear, etc which represents our choice to be separate individuals and special; 2)the voice of Truth, Love, Peace, etc which is undifferentiated, eternal and unconditional from our Source, and 3)the choice between them. We cannot ignore the dichotomy because then #1 runs the whole show.

Please forgive me if you find this posting a little too confrontive or not loving enough. I assure you I am being gentle and I do feel your struggle.
