Thanks for Letting me "Talk Story"
Dear A. B.
I forgot about the Desiderata... truly wonderful. It has continually amazed me when people want 2 share their worst case scenarios.
I will try 2 find your Blog. I have only figured out Email but perhaps my husband can help me with the computer. He is part Hawaiian and "talk story" is a big part of his cultural heritage. My other challenge is that I have been told I M compassionate. My mom is in continual pain and can hardly move due 2 osteoporosis...I Listen and try 2 focus on being present and gently positive but sometimes feel like I am suffering "with" her if that makes sense. I guess it's a fine line. One image I have found helpful is from a love story that starred
Cher and Nicholas Cage. I believe it was
called...Moonstruck. My favorite scene is when Nicholas Cage professes
his love 4 her and she responds by slapping him and yelling Snap Out of It!
Whenever I start going in a downward spiral I imagine that scene...only Cher is yelling..Snap out of it! to me. It usually
helps break the cycle. Thanx so much...I have appreciated talking story.
Since your husband is Hawaiian perhaps he knows of the ooponopono meditation. It is quite wonderful. I use it often.
