Amazing how Intentions can be blownbefore they have even started! I had intended to start this on the first ofJanuary, but was ill and too feeble to press the keys.
So, here we are now. The purpose of thisblog is to amuse, entertain, join and grow with you in exploring how we mightmake our lives more peaceful, more centred and focused and thus enable us tostep more easily into a place of serenity. Serenity as experienced emotionally,mentally and lived experientially in the body.
The dictionary defines serenity as
“thestate or quality of being serene, calm, or tranquil; sereneness.”
(1400-50; late MiddleEnglish serenite < Latin serēnitās. See serene, -ity)
Synonyms of `Serenity`include composure, calm, peacefulness, peace.
As our aspiration is to incrementallystep closer to this way of being each day the becoming aware of the myiad waysthat life and we obstruct this journey. How we sabotage the inner peace that isour natural state. This morning I have decided to be honest and admit that dietcoke has caffeine in it and as such is inimical to peace. Gosh I am depressedas that means I either have to give it up, or drink it in the certain knowledgeof hat it is doing for me. Caffeine in all its guises increases heart rate,reducing blood flow to extremities, hyping up adrenaline levels and affects theequilibrium of the mind. So my starting point for this blog is to open togreater inner and bodily peace by refraining from diet coke. As I don’t drinkor like tea or coffee that limits me to plain old H2O or wine.. and, not that Iam going there today, but I have a horrible foreboding that wine will prove tobe less that beneficial in my search for serenity…. Not looking there today!Does anyone feel like joining me and supporting me in this.. I wrote that froma decidedly `Eyore` frame of mind. Oh to be Owl!
