You don't grasp the fact that what is most alive if all is inside your own house.
Meanwhile my adorable daughter is playing, singing, and talking to herself. Too cute.
I meditate on this and imagine myself as a temple. In the innermost sanctuary is the Spirit. All falls away and there is just the breath.
'I have said, 'Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the Most High... but he shall die like mere mortals.' Psalm 82:6
That is, we have power, like gods, to create our own worlds, our inner and outer experiences. May we discover the divinity of who we are.
'Know ye not that ye are the temple of God and the Spirit of God dwelleth in you.' 1Cor
Wow! Proud of you. Well done
Nice. And more bonding with you, I'd wager.
Definitely. Think im going to work on some projects with them today. Gotta get these little guys ready for the big leagues (adulthood).
Is it wrong that imagined Chief Wiggum phoning you!?
Wow, great!, congratulations
I had to Google Chief Wiggum. Haha.
Can you get bombay potatoes in USA? I think you'd like them, and they are free if you spend a certain amount in a lot of places.
Sounds absolutely amazing! Now I want to go for an Indian tonight. Not sure my partner feels the same
That sounds amazing. Though I do love doughnuts too. And cake. :)
Ohhh! I'm so hungry & all that sounds so good. Well done, chef Love!
I'll keep my eye out for Bombay potatoes, John.
Chef Lice. I like that, Manda. I do cook with love. I like knowing that I'm preparing delicious and healthy meals for those I love and contributing to their well being.
Chef LOVE- not LICE. Stupid auto correct
Downloaded the app. Love a good Indian meal!! Thanks!
I'll need to stop at an Indian grocery store while I'm in NJ.Theres a large ex pat population. Just hope there's one enroute.
We don't have much when it comes to foreign food in this town, but ewe do have quite a few Indians and Lebanese people. So these herbs are around, luckily
That sounds like a brilliant trip. Can I come?
sounds awesome! Enjoy!
I went online to.purchase tix. $500 for a day pass? No thanks. Scratch Disney World. Maybe DC and Childrens Museums. Or Chuck E Cheese. Hehe.
Really?? That is daylight robbery.
It was $500 for me and my 3 kids. Still, I'll pass. I can do better things with my money
Where in Florida? I'm sure they'd love that, Love!
His name is Maximo Huaraka, a truly beautiful soul.
Wow! I love the tone he gets from his panpipes!
Me, too. I took my panpipes out and he played them. It was fun to sit and learn from a master. He told me he would teach me to play traditional Andean instruments like the bandurria. Reason enough to return to Peru next year.
I only understand a few words here and there, but it's so nice to just listen to him talk.
I bet you are one of these geniuses who speaks about 6 languages, Alicia/Asya! (What do you prefer to be called?)
That must have been a really good feeling.
It was painful at first, Jelli, but that feeling changed to one of peace and joy.
Wow, that really is transformative. Happy for you.
Thanks, Alicia. Thanks for the hugs, pandas. May we all manifest who we truly are.
Yes! Well said.
There was such a magical connection between us. He invited me to stay at his home and to take me to his village to meet his family. Sadly, Im leaving, but WILL return. I feel a deep connection with this magical land.
I play low whistle! Like flute but no skill required 😁
I know what you mean, I've once been to a sort of a semi-underground club here in Nurnberg, and after going to the bathroom my friend and I stumbled upon a very hippie-looking guy playing an old guitar held together with scotch tape...
and I don't know why, but my friend and I just started singing to his guitar out of the blue, almost simultaneously. Neither of us had done anything like that before. We just stood there and improvised for about 10 minutes. What a magical dude...
we though! 'How did you do that?, I asked him. Does it happen to you all the time?' And he said 'No, never, I have no idea what just happened'. One of the best experiences of my life.
I think I should post this story for everyone :) I'd completely forgotten that ever happened, thank you for reminding me!
Hehe. Music is magical that way. While in Peru, I did volunteer work at an orphanage for children with severe mental disabilities. They responded to my songs and music. I brought a pan flute and played for them. Another unforgettable experience.
This thread was so great!
His name is Maximo Huaraka. You can find him on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdsUp31fdbc
Really happy to hear it!
Glad it was a good trip, Love!
Enjoy it, if there's drumming or music, latch onto that.
There was no drumming, John, but the shaman did sing. He had a beautiful voice
That sounds awesome, and you should do that! Both of those things!
That's a funny one
We're sharing an intense experience, so the connection is different than usual.
I rejoice to see the indigenous culture so vibrant. They have much to offer & teach. Reason for coming was to learn more about their traditions. Today, heading to meet shaman to drink a purgative, medicinal water before tmrrws ayahuasca ceremony.
I have 14% Native Carib or Taino blood. Wanted to honor my ancestors and connect with the indigenous aspect of my culture by learning from one still extant. Heading to museum to learn more. Excited about what I will learn today.
very defined indigenous features. Reminded me of a comment by Nobel laureate Muhammad Yunnus, founder of Grameen Bank. They only extended microloans to women, because women would spend it on family and community....
men would spend on themselves, their mistresses, etc. Would like to see a more egalitarian society where women occupied half the positions of power. I think the world would be a much much better place!
Meant coca tea.
