Day 37: February 6
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love
Inspired by my son who is my favorite and only son, the idea of favorites became the focus of the walk on this day. Why are some things favorites and some things not? What does it say about what is personally valued? In all honesty, how does something become a favorite? Does it create ease, appease or does it please? In what ways might we be more honest with favorites and in what ways are we more honest with out them?
Walking on the savored and favored simple things came up at first, a favorite color, favorite foods, favorite places and then a realization that a smile was forming in thinking about those things that had become favorites. Memories and experiences along with preference and choice with what aligned became a way to define personality. Attitude, imagination, creativity and inspiration were all a part of the walk in considering the favorites that showed up and what made them favorites. Favorites have a ring of truth in them as an honest choice about what we like.
Considering the other side on the walk of return became a perspective of dislike, need and attachment. At the walk’s completion the findings returned the idea that there isn’t any need for favorites, no real attachment and when what is not favored is not wrong, acceptance is present. Favorites, without dependence, seem to have of stating our honest opinions and uplifting attitudes. Where going along with the crowd can be an easier non confronting choice, what we favor will out our truth if we are ever in denial of it.
In a walk of favorites and unfavorites an interesting conversation opens the door to awareness and deciphers a little bit more of ourselves in a way that can be uplifting, decisive and appreciative.
A suggestion to walk with:
On this sixth day…
Walk with your favorites and walk without them. Discover what opens your honest capacities.
As it is the second month of the year, enjoy two opportunities… discovery and realization.
- Discover your Love capacity:
This month’s 28 days will focus on how we are loving the moments we are creating. Learning to be “in love” with our focus, it expands who we are beyond the partnered relational aspects and into the focus of loving what we offer the world, who we are in community, relating at a higher level to everything and everyone; and most significantly, elevating the relationship we have with ourselves. Prepare for a wonderful experience of exercising the power of love with the freedom of honesty to realize a greater look at possibilities and potential n a delightful way. Discover how capable you are!
2. Realize synchronous evidence:
Inspired by the variety of heart shaped labyrinths, this month capture your experiences with images of the heart. Be on the look out for where the synchronicity of the moments where your heart is in focus and then look around to see where you can find the shape of a heart in symbol. Your awareness will expand and you just might be surprised to find that when we look with an open heart, we can find it in reference near by. It does require a bit of imagination, though the findings are wonderfully worth it. Share all the heart shaped labyrinth images you find with images, links or comments and I will be happy to post the images and moments.
Care to Share and Share to Care!
