January in Review
I’ve decided to try a month-in-review post, idea and format courtesy of Mon at Holistic Mama, one of the blogs I visit. I’ve hesitated to do this before, because my blog is more of a resource/article one than a mothering/journal one, but here goes…
This month has been about trying to find a new balance, now that I’ve started writing for BellaOnline, and also wanting to write some more in-depth posts here. All three kids got sick and had a hard time shaking it, which is very rare, so that got me sensing my mind and energy has been too dispersed. Centering and pacing are my new focus.
Starting the New Year in my favorite place, exploring caves with the kids, watching the Inaugeration, seeing Gangaji – my spiritual port in a storm
Sick kids, potty-training the twins, busy mind from too much internet time, struggling to find a still point
Never thought I’d be returning to my roots in Buddhism this way, but I feel very driven to do so, so interested to see where it all leads. Also feeling very feminist on the spiritual front these days, so interested to see where that all goes.
Indigo children theory – some interesting observations, but inflated by utopian ideals…too much pressure for this generation
Women of the Himalayas – bios of women teachers and leaders in Tibetan Tantric/Vajrayana Buddhism, mostly consorts
“One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying.” Joan of Arc – before being burned to death by the Church at age 19
Note to Self
Heed my own advice
