As you work with the tools in this book, as you undertake the weekly tasks, many changes will be set in motion. Chief among these changes will be the triggering of synchronicity: we change and the universe furthers and expands that change. I have an irreverent shorthand for this that I keep taped to my writing desk: “Leap, and the net will appear.” — Julia Cameron, The Artist's Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity, Souvenir Press, Kindle Edition.
The awakening to the mystery of life is a revolutionary event; in it an old world is destroyed so that a new and better one may take its place, and all things are affected by the change. We ourselves have become mysterious strangers in our own eyes and tremblingly we ask ourselves who we are, whence we came, whither we are bound. Are we the being who is called by our name, whom we thought we knew so well in the past? Are we the form we see in the mirror, our body, offspring of our parents? Who, then, is it that feels and thinks within us, that wills and struggles, plans and dreams, that can oppose and control this physical body which we thought to be ourselves? We wake up to realize that we have never known ourselves, that we have lived as in a blind dream of ceaseless activity in which there was never a moment of self recollection. —J. J. Van Der Leeuw, The Conquest of Illusion
Good morning everyone.
I'm here — 5 am, on the dot.
Life is happening slowly — or so it seems.
I've got a cup of coffee poured, which I'm enjoying, even though the taste is still heightened by this virus that refuses to give up the ghost.
How are you?
What's on today?
Me? I don't know. A little bit of work — not too much I hope — and sorting through some old papers, including the paraphernalia associated with my pension.( Collapse )
