Not much to say about these two days, I'll just share prompts as they came to me. I'm too lazy to add much thought to them, though there is food for thought in the idea of being reborn (day 4) each day. And my therapist was working with me on breathing (day 5) the last time we spoke. All the changes have been putting me into a state of high anxiety and I tend to stop breathing when that happens.
I'm adjusting to my new bathroom and loving it more and more each minute, getting more comfortable with the new logistics of moving in there and using the hand grips. Someone came yesterday to measure the kitchen for the linoleum. Angel is living on top of the refrigerator these days. Poor baby. Her new queendom will be taken away soon. Not sure how to finish getting ready for the next phase. I guess Nate and Dan will bring the new refrigerator and help me move the boxes. I actually sat on my bench yesterday (Shannon got the coveted chair at the computer) and Angel escaped briefly. Thank goodness Shannon is young and fast. Alas, now Angel is on alert for escape and ready to raise my anxiety level through the roof every time I have to open the door. Sigh.
Meant to do Ruby Tuesday today but somehow the day is half over and I haven't done it yet, so I think I'll skip again this week.
Guess that's it for now. Today I'm grateful for my new bathroom, things to come, beauty, life, and music.
BIRTH OF GRATITUDE
Allow Gratitude to guide you through NOW to themoment of your conception, your earthly Being-ness.As you journey through to the beginning of YOU let Gratitudebe your guide, remembering a state of perfection, purity, andone-ness with Source.One might be surprised to realize how many times the physicalbody re-creates itself through Gratitude. So it IS with ourenergetic, intellectual, and spiritual Selves, too.You're beautiful, baby!***Go Gratitude!***Imagine this Beloved Union happyning within YOU - one beatingtrue with Love and Gratitude. Feel this pure state of emerging Lifebridging here with NOW, re~birthing *you*, US, everyoneinto a state of Grace through the power of Gratitude.
***Conception: Two cells merge, form a 'vesica piscis' - a deeplysacred shape where the centres of two spheres or circles bisecteach other. Next sperm and ova pass right through each otherto become a single cell or zygote. Then: mitosis and thechromosomes join, then migrate to North and South poles.
Then a tube forms pole to pole and the chromosomes split andmigrate to alternate poles. This is the complete prototype newhuman. The zygote then splits into four cells andforms a tetrahedron inside a sphere. The next division yieldsa star tetrahedron/cube in a shape called 'the egg of life'.
These eight cells reside at the perineum - our centre(geometrically) and literally where we grow from. And animportant esoteric plexus, besides, on which our energy fieldfixates. Anyway, eight cells divide into eight more, form a cubewithin a cube. After this, divisions become asymmetrical as wedifferentiate in all the tiny special little ways that make us, well,special! At sixty-four cells the embryo becomes hollow and thepoles grown together and form a tube torus, one end of whichwill be the mouth, the other, the anus.So, to sum up: life begins as an ovum or sphere, becomes atetrahedron, then a star tetrahedron, a cube, another sphere,and finally, a torus.
(note: the symbol of Gratitude is a tube torus, too! wow!)
