Emma your "small 2 cents" is actually more like a million dollar/or priceless good advice! This is very, very true!
I am currently reading a book titled "Full Living Catastrophe" by Jon Kabat-Zinn. This book is actually all about doing just as you say above. It gives specific meditations to do to help train yourself into doing just this too. It was done as a study at a major hospital in MA in the USA--to see if and how its effects would work on people with major medical issues. The results were astounding!
So, anyway, I'm reading this book myself and was told by a member here in A.T. that there is a free course on this also available online. I haven't yet begun the free course, as I've been so busy--but I do hope to start it in July--once all my classes are done for the summer.
If you are interested in this book yourself--I have since also found where you can download it for free onto your computer. Of course--I didn't know this till long after I already bought it! But, thats okay too--as it was well worth its money to me!
I dont need the book((((( Celtic!!!!))))) I figured it out to work myself lol mind you im 55 if I cant even figure out the basics of sane living for myself and my life well....
I learnt it only harms ME and I do myself a disservice and hey its small stuff....older you get, or if yu have an illness, more you realise time is short, we WILL be worm fodder, you tend to cut through all bullshit alot quicker and procrastination also goes in the bin quicker and quicker...terrible for librans who like a century or two to thnk about things before mKing a decision or rather a great thing lol
@tigerangel thank you for your post, i wish you well
Security and contentment is all most it can give long term
cant buy anythng much else that matters that much
If you think of all the peoples round the world with almost nothing andhaving to walk 3 miles just to get clean water it makes you feel a bit more grateful and secure when you feel poor
you know what? There are loads of miserable millionaires in this world, i met one, a woman who had a 5 million pound house and she was getting a divorce and she was gonna get the house, and she was still miserable
I met a girl at work many moons ago living in a basement 1 bedroom flat, she welcomed her dad every morning, made him coffee, had cinammn rolls, had a pretty bouganvillia bush in her little front garden (which she appreciated)and was happy as larry as we brits say....
Long as you have security and health its ok ucan do more and more at your own pace quick or slow
