IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU SAID IN YOUR LIFE WAS "THANK YOU", THAT WOULD SUFFICE. ~Meister Eckhart

If we persist in "being the way we are" even when it doesn't work, we have nobody to blame but ourselves when things go wrong. ~Walk in Dry Places

I just woke up from a fuzzy dream
You never would believe the things that I have seen
~Madonna
  • well it really wasn't all that fuzzy because I remember vivid details about Madonna's apartment in NYC. We hung out, laughed, talked about future stuff. The rooms were gigantic, dark walls, outside walls of windows with heavy coverings. We were buds. I woke feeling like we really knew each other. I have had those dreams of her before--where when I woke I had the familiarity of knowing someone. I had a dream once about Princess Diana that affected me in that way. Peculiar.

Last night I painted, researched for my visual feasting I need and get from the Internet, looked for people on Facebook and found some. I shared with a friend about losing a loved one and how our Higher Power is closer to us when we are in pain than any other time. (This has been my experience.) How during pain we are poised for spiritual growth.

...pain is the touchstone of all spiritual progress. ~12 & 12

Today I feel that I am poised for success. I have lived my life with a fear of success. I always felt less than, separate from, not enough. Today I still have little flare ups, but in general I feel fulfilled and purposeful. I know I am on track. That is a true gift.

Sometimes ... in the silence of my car, my joy is so great and my gratitude so overwhelming, I can do nothing but laugh. ~Fr Leo

I wonder what is behind the fear of success that so many people live with. Great blog. I'm going to start looking for one of those Queen Elizabeth crowns and wear it around the house.

I love what you wrote about feeling poised for success. Our fear of success is often unrecognized, and just lurks, waiting to sabotage us.

I'm so glad you have recognized your worth!

I love the time between waking and dreaming ... a "fuzzy" time, for sure and one that I never can keep for long.

You and Madonna and Diana, now that would need publication, A queen, a princess, and a material girl.

I'll avert my eyes while you and Madonna finish up your little relationship business...

Blessings and aloha...

I don't like those fuzzy dreams. I feel all discombobulated after one.
