RIPOSO - REPOSE
PART OF OUR DAILY TRAVEL JOURNAL
Today, is a wonderful day. I will look for things I like and make me feel good, and I will find them. I will enjoy reading, writing, focusing and concentrating, walking, supporting, being aware of how I feel and practicing my skills to move up when I need it. I intend to put my attention on keeping my positive state of mind, and act from there. All in gratitude. Grazie.
Jolanda's Intentions: I intend to have intense moments of contemplation in deep silence. I intend lightness, playfulness and direction in my painting. I intend deeper insight and clarity in The Master Keys and life in general; how to live it's most natural. I intend to be present often, deeply enjoying where I am and who I am. Deeply grateful for my drive to move closer to 'the core' of being and surrender to that.
I intend physical strength and flexibility, what needs to come from the inside (thoughts/feelings) first. And I intend lovely and satisfying meals. Arigato.
Result: (J) I remember me mildly 'trying' to live La Dolce Far Niente. Dissappearing in the great not-doing. I need to have some practice since it's not fully natural/conditioned for me. My early morning in the cool air, the sunshine, silence (apart from commute sounds in the distance. It's easy to be present then, to be aware of the air, the colors and the amazing idea I may live here for a while.
No playfulness with painting, because I didn't paint. I did some study on YouTube for a new direction.
Worked on The Master Keys and it was clarifying and I take it on a different take; I look what I know/master already instead of what I need to learn.
I see that the high priority on being present and aware doesn't work out very well. Every day saying that I want it and not doing it. I see now that it's just a choice I need to make every time, till it becomes a habit. And maybe I'm more present than I think? (J)
Wonderful day and effortless ease. Every intention worked out. Short and simple (R).
