The other day I wrote about accepting how we are sometimes powerless to create the life we want to live, and how I think it's important to acknowledge that and grieve for what we can not have.
Well, today I was walking along the beach with my bestest friend, and I can't remember what we were talking about, but not anything to do with the aforementioned subject. Then she said, in the casual and uncontrived way she has of dispensing beautiful wisdom :
You can create whatever feeling you want for your life.
I loved that.
I was given a howlite pendant recently. The moment I put it on, I felt tremendous peace and calm. I don't normally believe in the power of crystals, but this has been undeniable. Ever since, I have been aware of my own power to create calm and peace in my life. I don't even have to do much, it's all about the feeling I bring to things. That feeling does not change the material facts, but it does change my response to them, and that can make a real difference.
How do you create a feeling within yourself? By feeling it.
May I recommend this video? Among other things, it's why I believe so strongly in homeschooling and alternative forms of education like Steiner Education.
And this message for mothers.
