A Gentle and Compassionate Approach to Personal Growth

Some months back, I was on the phone with an acquaintance. She was very angry about something that had happened to her. In a split second, as I challenged her, her angry turned on me. I normally consider myself a calm person, but at that moment when she attacked, I felt my blood boil – I was furious! I couldn’t think straight. All I wanted to do was respond venomously and then hang up the phone.

What do you Need?

I’ve been feeling a desperate need to have this winter over. I am tired of looking at the same landscape. I have a deep desire for warmth and colour. I realize I can’t use my super mind powers to speed up the departure of winter (or of the pandemic for that matter), but perhaps creativity is all that is needed to temporarily ease things.

My walk this morning closely resembled my emotional and mental landscape at present – somewhat mucky and muddy, a bit slippery, drizzly, overcast and minus a lot of the usual things that bring me joy.
