They are filled with life and color and texture when you get up close and take the time to really look. My favorite tidal pool finds are anemones. They are colorful, wiggly and weird and just so much fun to shoot.

Aside

I wonder sometimes if any of my dreams at night “mean” something.   Usually I don’t give them much significance, except when there is a definite spiritual feeling to them.  Perhaps some have more subtle meaning.  Usually I think they are just “dumping off” excess energy & emotion from doing Reiki.  Last night I was being chased by bad guys–common for me–when I found a shortcut through a fence, only to find myself on a kind of track with a train coming and no place to go.  I think I woke up then.   I  have too many encounters in my sleep with wild grizzlies and mountain lions–and often I have to take a bus through a very violent part of town.  If there are any “messages” here, I’m not “getting” them !!!

PTSD - A Way Out

“Regard “I,” “me,” “mine,” and other forms of self as just more mind-objects—thoughts like any other. Remind yourself: I am not thoughts. I am not these thoughts of “I.” Don’t identify with the self!
.
Don’t use self words (“I,” “me,” “myself,” and “mine”) any more than necessary. Try to get through a specific period of time, such as an hour at work, without using them at all.”
.

Mind objects are powerless to a meditator.
.
Thoughts are powerless, air without action.
.
Own only what is permanent or what we take with us at death, our true self.

I only have Power in The Present

As a Recovering Plan-aholic  I am reminded in today’s Peace that I can only take Action in The Present & I can only Pencil In my next few steps–I must Trust Myself to be Wise in the Next Moment, and The Next, because the illusion of “planning” is that I can know what everyone else will choose and what the weather will be like every day. . . as I have become Healthier I feel more confident that I will not be depressed and overwhelmed and confused when the next Decision is needed. . .and if I AM in a lousy state, I can postpone as many decisions as possible and make the ones I must using The Light I remember from yesterday and last week.

“Self Has Many Aspects”!!!!

Wow!!

PTSD - A Way Out


.

“The many aspects of self are based on structures and processes spread throughout the brain and nervous system, and embedded in the body’s interactions with the world.
.
Researchers categorize those aspects of self, and their neural underpinnings, in a variety of ways. For example, the , self (“I am solving a problem”) likely arises mainly in neural connections among the anterior cingulate cortex, upper-outer prefrontal cortex (PFC), and hippocampus; the self (“I am upset”) emerges from the amygdala, hypothalamus, striatum (part of the basal ganglia), and upper brain stem (Lewis and Todd 2007).
.
Different parts of your brain recognize your face in group photos, know about your personality, experience personal responsibility, and look at situations from your perspective rather than someone else’s”

.
.
The self is smaller and more fragmented than ever conceived. The “I”is tinier than once thought.
