"I call this "Out the Window":
You look out a window
and imagine what it is that you love
...Imagine the love in your heart,
all that energy and sweetness and passion,
going out the window to that thing you love
- it might be painting,
or the beach,
or giving to those less fortunate,
or helping people in your special,
- Rori Raye
for getting out of one's automatic negative thoughts
and into an open heart space.
I am going to make lists of things that make my heart chakra glitter openly with great love for life.
Tonight's is a short list as I got home very late and I need to be up for RCIA in the morning.
Ok, some things that I love about life...
leaving a giant bath towel on the radiator in the bathroom so I can wrap myself in warmth when I step out of the shower on a winter morning.
cooking on a Sunday with the sound of a football game on the TV in the background.
that first smell of the ocean when you've just driven an hour and a half to get down the shore.
when a student says, "Oh, I get it now!"
the way my kitten vibrates my lap when he sits on me and purrs.
when a stranger smiles back.
when a little kid is really happy with the candy I gave them for Halloween because I sprang for the Hershey's chocolate assortment rather than the Dollar Store lollipops.
vanilla ice cream on hot pumpkin pie.
the look on someone's face when you let them cut ahead of you on line because they only have one item.
automatic doors at the laundromat.
not knowing if it's a star or a planet but making a wish anyway.
