Love's Journey

Gone is Mixing for Trouble. It seems now is a good time to make various changes including creating a new blog. This blog is my open journal, to be viewed & shared by those who wish to be a part of it. This blog here will be an e-record of the changes & such on my journey toward love.

Truthfully I have struggled all my life to know myself & be loved. Finally I have chosen a time when some of the more critical issues of my life are not so threatening to my life. But I'm not off the hook entirely due to the fact that I'm a recovering drunk & when I'm not taking the utmost care of my peace of mind, then this mind of mine turns to the solution of alcohol(ha ha get it!).

So the first thing on my mind is what it means to be conscious. Why is it important to be conscious? How is it beneficial to the self & others? Hellen Keller wrote, "When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us." This to me reminds me to be in acceptance of every situation & to remain hope-filled & aware. Meaning to be conscious all the time is to be in contact with love & joy. Why do we as humans fear being conscious? I'm sending an e-mail to some friends on what being conscious is for them. I'll post their responses anonymously in this blog & encourage loving humans to comment too.

Thank you for reading & be well!
