A Little About Me

I want to welcome anyone that happens to stumble across my Blog. I put up this blog as a way to share some of my experiences and insights I’ve gained throughout my life. I am approaching middle age and my life up to this point has been a search for my purpose and meaning for being here. I am not one to use catch phrases and new age vernaculars that attempt to describe our experiences. Too often words just get in the way of a deeper understanding.
I am humbled in the presence of so many of you that share my passion for truth and reflection. This is our chance to shine and learn to enjoy the gift of life. Don’t give up on your search for meaning, it is right within your reach. It is a feeling inside that screams for acknowledgment. It begs to be felt and held. We must learn to use our other senses to fully experience the beauty and truth.
There really is no thoughtful reason for what I post other than it feels right at the time. I have many interests and just need to express them when the feeling hits me. If it helps just one person to begin their journey of reflection then I am happy. If you have anything to share that might help another then feel free to comment anything you would like to share. I will be glad to hear your story.
I wish you peace and abundance on this trip together. We have so little time lets spend it the best way possible.

Namaste

  1. can i ask a question –

  2. Found your blog from your YouTube link. I watched your Meditate on the Chakras video. I absolutely love the music. Who is the artist? Can I get more of his work somewhere?

    I’ve looked around the blog a bit, & it looks pretty cool so far. Looking forward to many more posts.

    Thanks

  3. Hi Friamin,

    Karma is not negative action. It merely means action – neither good nor bad but just actions. people can accumulate good karma or bad karma.

    Of the 4 types of Yoga (Union), there is also the Karma Yoga – where you achieve union with Self through action. In this context it means selfless service to others.

  8. Hi Friamin,
    I’ve been to your website and gotten a chance to read your blog. I know this is something that you usually don’t do but I think I have something that you or your readers may be interested in…

    My name is Sarah Small. I am an assistant of Jeff Rivera’s at Gumbo Writers, and we are wondering if you might be interested in letting your audience know about one of clients. Her name is SilviaMick, and she has just released a new book about her life experiences and growth as an independent thinker in this day in age.

    Through her reminiscing and recollections, Silvia traces her life and the values that she has learned and lost on the way to self-realization and actualization. Her story is not only inspirational, but also insightful.

    You can check out her and her book at her website:

    If you think you or your readers might be interested in our client, feel free to send me an email at assistant7.jeffrivera@gmail.com and I would be happy to provide you with further information.

    Thank you for your time,

    Sarah

  9. I came across your web page on youtube. Thank you for being so unselfish and sharing your insights. I found it very interesting and calming.

  10. As most everyone else here, i came across your page in youtube…and like the rest, i thank you. i’m at a point in my life where, just like you wrote, there is a feeling inside that “screams for acknowledgment” yet, i’m not finding the will that i need to tend to it. i’m almost homeless and that doesn’t invoke any kind of urgency either. i’m just indifferent to it all. how do i obtain the will, the energy, the desire to find meaning to my life?

    • Dear Cecilia–I do not know you, but at the risk of sounding like a new-age Pollyana, every being has worth. For reasons too long to go into here, I’ve been down and indifferent–so down one day in the middle of a Long’s Drugstore I felt my mind slipping away from me. It was the strangest and most frightening feeling. It had come on a rising tide of indifference that had grown over several long years. I pulled my mind to a screeching halt and decided I wasn’t going that far down. While I’m not sure exactly what the trigger point is for everyone, I know that the desire to no longer be indifferent is key. It does get better. And while I can’t give you much more than that, and the knowledge that years down the road I find life wonderful and exciting every day, and that each sunrise is beautiful, each sunset is glorious, every bird that sings is a gift and every child smiling is a great treasure. I feel the touch of air on my skin and I am grateful for that feeling. If I could light the world with the magic I feel every day, I would. Every person matters and every gift, every moment life gives me, no matter how small, is precious. Every person deserves the best I can give, every breath is taken with gratitude, and every day I waken I am overjoyed for another chance to discover the magic. But I was indifferent once. Strangely, the more idifferent I was, the more chances life threw at me for me to steep in my indifference. Now that I love each day and embrace the beautiful peace of each night, life tosses into my lap moment after festive moment of enjoyment and fun and special smiles and kindness. I wish I could give this to you; I only know the spark is inside you somewhere, as it was in me, waiting to leap up and show you how special life is. Now I find myself embracing even what appear to be hard times and the theme runs through my mind “Oh, boy, what can I learn now?” Then the hard time fades into something calmer and it’s back to every moment being a gift and a learning process (if we stop learning, we shrivel) and another step to something magical. I’m not perfect at this–I still gripe and fuss, but it is easier and easier every day to catch myself and flip it the other way. Truly hope I have given you something to think about that will help you out of that place. Having been there, having been wiling to fade away and/or die because of it, I also know there is a way out. Just look for one thing–just one thing, however small, to be grateful for and focus on that. I promise you, with everything in my being, that more things will show up that you can be grateful for. Decide there is a way out and it will appear. I don’t know how life does this, but it is something I am intensely grateful for (I use that word a lot, I am aware, but it has gradually dawned on me that the more I say thank you to life, the more life gives me glorious things to be thankful for.) I can think of one thing about you that is remarkable. Your name is beautiful. Cecilia is the patron saint of musicians. That is charming, and wonderful. I hope I have helped you in some way, and not just left you feeling some lady is rambling on. And maybe it will help you to know someone out there is not indifferent to you. I’ll keep you in my thoughts, and be grateful I got to touch another life even for a moment.

  11. You are so cute!
    🙂
