The ideas on this image/page came from the weekly Just One Thing (JOT) newsletter, “Lower the Pressure by Rick Hansen, author of Buddha’s Brain and the newly published book Just One Thing.
I like that idea of being “true to my own North Star”…
a vision and aspiration for direction in life,
but also keeping grounded in the awareness
that in this moment,
we are likely to be…
“safe enough, fed enough and loved enough”
just as we are….
I find the ideas on that page so reassuring and comforting, that I decided to split up the individual ideas, which I originally posted in September, onto separate pages, as a slideshow/video.
I added some gentle music….
actually a lullaby…
and have been enjoying it for a few weeks….
So here it is…
ready to be shared…
I hope it brings
some comfort, warmth and reassurance
to anyone else who might benefit from those….
a short, 50 second youtube video of that page….
I hope that each of us can find that North Star
but also be able to feel
just as we are…
My thanks to Rick Hanson PhD, ( neuropsychologist) for the continuing inspiration of his ideas and insights…I highly recommend his books, Buddha’s Brain and Just One Thing, and his weekly newsletter, Just One Thing. He also has a huge website WiseBrain, that he shares with Rich Mendius, a neurologist….Wise Brain is a treasure chest of information and resources. (Links to books and newsletters are in the beginning of this post)
A very soothing post, Pocket. The word “enough” puts everything into perspective. Have a good school week.
Yes, that word “enough” is a good one. Wishing a good week to you too…
Beautiful slide show. Love the background of the night sky.
Paula (Reflections from a Cloudy Mirror) ends most of her posts by wishing readers “enough.”
Thanks…I love that night sky, too… I seem to use it a lot. I used another sky photo for the background of a beautiful poem that hugmamma wrote/posted yesterday… (it’s up in the “other” tab…. https://pocketperspectives.wordpress.com/other/believe-in-yourself/ ) She gave her okay to share it…might put it to the main column, ’cause I like it so much… I think what she says in the poem is “important.” (and I think the “amazing things” one is important too…is that okay to post in the main column some day?…I added your name to it)
I haven’t thought a lot about the word “enough”…but I think I’ll start… I’ll head over to Reflections from a Cloudy Mirror and check that out… : )
Sure. Post it in the main column anytime you want. 😀
“Enough” is a great word.
Thanks for the link, Kathy. 🙂 Lovely and timely thoughts.
Happy to see that you got a good night’s sleep…..stay well… : )
You are enough. I am enough. We are all enough. Amen to that! 🙂
Isn’t the awareness of “enough” sooooooo reassuring and special ….and important, too.
