I hope that you are all well and prospering. Today is day two of my art of detachment series. Again, my first words spoken were "I love you". I worked out again today but did not have the need to meditate, instead I was drawn to the weights. Am I officially grounded? Have I found my balance? I'll give the credit to the Gold light exercise and mediation.
This morning I was told that I am an inspiration and a success story to many. I am honored and encouraged by her words. Just like her beautiful soul expressing her gratitude I extend my gratitude to all who take time out of their day to honor the good in others.
Yesterday, I explored the idea of "treats" and how "treats" should nourish my well-being not poison it. Today I explored detaching from shopping; decor, clothes, jewelry, makeup..etc. Through this journey of the art of detachment I will also detach from the luxury of unnecessary spending.
Detachment lesson number two:
I don't really shop too often for myself but when I do it's because I feel it's "necessary" yet, I purchase "unnecessary" items. Do I really need another pair of shoes? Or another outfit? No.....not need.....but want! Needing and wanting are absolutely two different degrees of the emotional mind. I have made the commitment to make use of what I already have. What I have is enough.
Today's experience, passing by my favorite boutique with a 60% off sale sign bright displayed, I continued to walk by. Silently repeating "I have enough". Coming to this realization I have created internal peace. It is a beautiful phenomena to not feel the need to seek or purchase something.
I participated in the 1st day of the Oprah and Deepak mediation challenge. If you have never participated in a mediation challenge I would highly recommend it. https://chopracentermeditation.com/home OM was the mantra today. I love the way OM vibrations feels. OOOOOMMMMMMM :)
My last words of the night were "I love you" followed by silence and reflection.
