Today is National Apple Pie Day, I learned from the morning news, as I also watched Mr. Food’s Howard create Pineapple Honey Salad Dressing (Mmm…it’s so good!).
Why do we need national food celebration days? Every single day is devoted to a national holiday of some kind, have you noticed that? Is humanity THAT NEEDY, that we are ISO something better from every single day?
In my own personal walk, trying to ground myself, I stepped into previous writings ISO myself a little bit more. Turning the inside out!
A dear friend shared a message with me a few years ago. I recorded it. I refer to it. “You have the right to be who you are. Stop apologizing for being you. Stop trying to earn what is already yours. You have earned this incarnation, so live it with integrity and fullness. The mountain does not apologize, nor does it seek approval. It simply is what it is. Be what you are. Your soul know its way.”
Delve deep, go inside. If you don’t meditate, or cannot meditate, pick your own way. Art, music, writing. Or go out of doors and stand in the grass to greet the earth and nature. Breathe deep. Grow the your flower inside of you, a rose of beauty.
Emerson writes: The inner world of imagination becomes a sanctuary of hope and promise, a place of retreat for feelings and thoughts, where seeds of individuality and creativity incubate.
Now, isn’t that tastier than that $75 cup of coffee from beans from Panama? Easier to obtain, but you do have to open the earth of your heart and soul, and bravely explore.
