Hello, excellent Open Heart Project. This is the first brand new video I’ve made in a little while. There are a few reasons for this: 1. I have been working really hard on 2020 plans for the OHP. Very excited to share them with you soon. 2. I am writing a new book. About the enneagram! 3. I have been feeling…weird. (Low? Sad? Not sure what to call it.)
The first two reasons are totally accurate, but something has been happening to me in the last little while. I have not been feeling 100% like myself. I think I might be in a creative transition of some kind, like when you’re moving from one way of being in the world to another. I think it’s a good thing! One never knows. In any case, I feel steadier and am excited to share this new video with you. The second I sat down to make this it, I realized how much I had been missing communicating with you in this way. I welcome myself back! Mwah!
Before this week’s sit, I share with you a suggestion I made to a friend who was about to attend a family gathering. He had mixed feelings. He loves some of them a lot while others irritate the cr*p out of him. No matter how tough a talking-to he gives himself about being patient and kind, at some point he gets dragged into a pit of judgment and criticism. I gave him an idea for working with his mind during such moments. I spoke to him after the gathering and he said it helped! So, yay for that. Before this week’s sit, I share that suggestion with you, knowing that as meditators you will understand exactly what I am saying.
Let me know if you try this little mental trick. I always love hearing from you.
