Where are you in your JOURNEY on each of the following paths?
Is it where you’d LIKE to be?
What can you do to enhance your EXPLORATIONS?
Obviously with the Myasthenia Gravis this is an issue or me. There are some “paths” I have no control over. As I’m lowering my dose of prednisone, I’m hoping and praying that the symptoms will go into remission and that I will get at least some of my mobility back. In the meantime I’m doing what I should have done years ago — making healthier eating choices, trying to de-stress, and moving more. Unfortunately exercise is not part of the equation at the moment, though I’ve been through physical therapy and may go again…
This is a tough one for me also. Since struggling with the MG and the medication, my attention span has been that of a gnat! I read one page and lose all focus. But I’m pushing myself to read. Have books laying all over the house so no matter where I land I can “practice!” I do also try to keep up with the political climate, though that just makes me mad. And I read as many blogs every day as I can.
This is something I work at constantly. At the moment I am co-leading a small group at church on finding time to make “Space for God” in our lives. It uses everything from Psalms to hymns to poetry to art and a bunch of other stuff. Spirituality is all around us, and I believe learning to see life in a holistic way is something we are not taught to do — though we certainly come into this world with that ability until it is stamped out of us by social convention. And that’s why the JOURNEY inside is so very important. It opens our eyes to all kinds of possibilities. And without those possibilities this will never be a a better world.
An unexamined life is not worth living.
