Thanks to Angel for putting onto these lovely folk... I now get a Daily Power question in my email box and this was yesterday's...
Immediately, I thought of Joseph Campbell's famous quote:
Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you
where there were only walls.
And I promptly wrote a list of my bliss - that which makes me happy, content, warm inside...
Time alone reading and writing
Time with family when each are safely gathered in before dark
Time with friends
Lighting a candle before prayer/meditation
Watching/listening to football - especially when Liverpool win :-)
Watching high-quality drama on TV
Learning something new
Browsing the internet 'meeting' interesting people
Having time to just sit and think
Getting out on my scooter and feeling the warm breeze
Watching the seasons change
Writing a blog post and enjoying people's comments :-)
I'm sure there are many more... But I'd love to know What's Your Bliss?
My bliss - walking in nature,ReplyDelete
seeing birds at my feeder
seeing raptors in flight
seeing birds anywhere else, especially ravens
walking my dog
reading posts of online friends and traveling back to when I met them
reading a good book
knitting in my living room watching the snow come down, with a warm fire in the stove
spending time weaving, just watching the cloth being created before me
writing my new ideas down and seeing them develop into something
walking in the fall stepping on dead leaves and hearing that crunching sound
Taking wool and creating yarn with it
Conversations with friends
Looking at the moon
Warm sunshine coming through the window hitting my back
spending time with pen, paper and my own thoughts
I could go on Claire, nice exercise to be reminded of how many blissful things are in my life. Have a sweet day my friend.
Love, LOVE your list, Kate - thank you so much for sharing!!Delete
Sharing good food with friendsReplyDelete
looking at the stars on a clear night with no light pollution
having a cat on my lap, purring
reading a good book
zentangling - creating
These are a few of mine...
Thank you SO much for sharing your beautiful Bliss List... They're as original, and beautiful, as each one of us is, these Bliss Lists, aren't they? - just LOVE 'em!!Delete
We are in south Texas, and my son loves Liverpool football! Of course here we call it soccer or futbol (not too far from Mexico). I love to create...so many things! Snuggling up with a good book. Sharing lunch or dinner out with friends. Time with the family most of all!ReplyDelete
