I've been asking myself: What do I really believe as opposed to what I should believe or what I'm accustomed to believing? (Belief, faith, or whatever you want to call it is the provenance of the heart, not the head.)

Sound like a convoluted process? Well. It's interesting.

That is, it's interesting to me. Probably not so much to anyone who likes to visit this blog. Because really, how boring is it to read about someone else's navel gazing?

All temptations to electronically record this very foundational level thought-form restructuring will be eliminated for the next couple of days. I'm heading up to my friend's cabin on the Potomac in W. Virginia. Ahh ... a couple of days out of the buzzy energy field of DC, under the trees, with my dear friends (the man and the river). Just what the Sufi acupuncturist ordered. Oh yeah!

Life is good - I DO believe that - and I am grateful (almost always). See ya on the flip.

Oddly enough, my hair stylist asked me if I believed in God the other day. I didn't have any clear answers for her and found myself stumbling around, citing one life altering thing after another that had jolted my belief system. I'm not sure I'll ever have anything solid and grounded in faith as I did as a child, ever again.

Hey, I'm navel-gazing today, too! We're on the same wavelength again. :)

Have a great time on your break. Sounds wonderful!

Have fun on your break like Steve said. I learned a few new things this past week, and am grateful.

I have always had faith that everything will work out in the end, whatever that means!

try navel gazing with a fuzzy navel cocktail. (vodka, peach schnapps & a slice of fresh peach,topped off by orange juice) it's Tasty!

What is it that we've said that made you think we were anti-navel-gazing? We're all up in here with the analysis and meta-analysis. Isn't that right everybody?

See. Now get outta here. Later days.

Have a great trip!

And speaking for myself, I love reading about your interesting insights and perspectives. I say: Navel-gazing? Bring it on!

It matters, what we believe, because it shapes the world, but it doesn't matter, what we believe, cause we can change it at any moment.

This makes things very wearing sometimes.

But exciting.

love you. may the Force be with you.

I just had my annual eye exam today (all came out well), but that bottom photo is just what the street looked like to me as I walked out into the bright sun.

Not boring - rather a sense of companionship.
