Prayers for peaceful hearts in challenging situations

Tuesday, August 06, 2013

This morning I had my meditation first thing, before I even started the routine of dressing and packing the healthy eats bag. It was wonderful, refreshing, and peaceful to take this time to clear all the trash away and allow the soul to breathe.

A little later, bag packed, ready for the work day, and steel cut oats a-simmer, I checked my FB feed, and found an amazing post by one of the wounded from Fort Hood, asking for prayers. He will have to take the stand sometime during the course of this trial, and be faced by the man who shot him. The defendant, in case anyone missed it, has been given permission to act as his own counsel, which allows him to directly question the witnesses.

What my friend posted this morning, in part, was this:

"Are we strong enough to defeat hate? Or has time turned fear, discontent, malice, and hate I too (sic, I think "into" was intended) something far greater than that of just a simple word, feeling, or emotion. Preparing for the hardest thing in their lives to do my ft hood family prepares to testify. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers, along with my family and myself. Pray that hate or that thing that has grown to something more dissolves and we find guidance or resolution. "

So deep and truthful, and humble... please add your prayers to mine for the comfort and healing, the courage and ability, for these men and women who have waited nearly four years for the trial to begin.

Thank you, and may your hearts know peace, as well.

    So once again, soldiers are required to be brave and honorable after already being wounded serving their country. It would be hard not to hate the person responsible and want to wring his neck the moment he is seen. But obviously, they will rise above it. Show the terrorist their spirit is not broken and never will be.
Four years is an outrageous length of time for a trial to be started. I feel for everyone having to wait so very long for justice. Though I don't think there is any punishment available that is fitting for that outrage. May they feel the peace, calm and comforting warmth from their guiding spirit to stand tall and proud as they face this test.
Thanks for bringing this to our attention..
Hopefully, your meditation will serve as a calming influence to get through your hectic day..

Another Meditation starts today

Monday, August 05, 2013

This one is on miraculous relationships. This is another of those Chopra Center 21 day freebies. I dragged my feet signing on for this one. Because the word "relationships" brings up an image of romantic relationships, almost automatically.

However these are not the ONLY kinds of relationships one has in life. We all have many roles, and every friendship, acquaintaince, or even blog exchange represents a relationship between humans. So... wanting to be open to miracles, here I go again!

https://chopracentermeditation.com/p
rograms/index


And I am heading to work on a wave of peace, not forgetting my usual list:

* Drink the water
* Eat what's in the bag
* Remember to go to recess

and

* Today, I am open to the presence of miracles.

Life is GOOD. Spark on. emoticon Namaste.

Bonus blog: building mileage

Sunday, August 04, 2013

That double half mary is only five weeks away. So this weekend, I set out to do two "longer" runs back to back. My five miles yesterday was joined by 10.2 today (with an additional 2.1 to get myself the rest of the way home with a cool down walk... I split them in RunKeeper so I wouldn't be tempted to overdo the build of total mileage... last thing I need is an overuse injury that will sideline me from either next weekend's trip or the race in five).

Where I ended up, at the far end of my jog was about 7 miles away (maybe a fraction more)... here: The lake is a place of peace, but so is the cemetary. This happens to be the one where my parents are laid to rest, and as I wended my way in that direction, the random thought popped into my head, "Mom, would you be proud of me NOW?"

Mom never much seemed to appreciate it when I lost weight and became more athletic. Don't know why, but she didn't. Maybe she thought she had to compete (I got that competitive streak from SOMEWHERE, right?) Still, I like to think that by NOW, she would be pleased to see the good that this has done in my life. No competing at this point with her on one side of the Great Divide and me on the other. But still, don't we all crave our parents' approval in one form or another? Or at least their understanding/support, even if our choices are different from what they would make for us?

Have a blessed Sunday out there fellow Sparklers... be safe, and savor LIFE, which is good. Spark on! emoticon

Wish lists

Sunday, August 04, 2013

Remember when you were a kid and had a wish list? Things you'd like for Christmas but wouldn't or couldn't spend the money on for yourself? I find myself this morning with a wish list growing in my head. It consists of fitness gadgets I've looked at and decided not to spend the money for.

At the top of my list is body lighting, so I can run outdoors before dawn and after sunset. I've never bought it... opting for the treadmill when it's dark or slick. But I've become fonder of outdoor activity over the course of time, and if I want to keep doing it much longer into the fading sunlight... this might have to move up into the "really invest in this" category.

Another thing I have looked at somewhat longingly but shrugged off is a Road ID. These are little bracelets or anklets that you wear or weave into your shoelaces when you're out on the road working out. Rather than carrying full driver's license or whatever... if anything untoward should happen, this links folks up with who you are and can be linked to an online data base that contains any vital health info someone would need when treating you (medical allergies, hidden conditions, anyone?)

And I have total envy of the fitbit you can wear while swimming. That's a somewhat bigger ticket item... but one of these days...

The fancy Garmin GPS watches, too... although I'd have to have one of the better ones if I wanted to wear it TRIing.

I use my wish list as my rewards list, too. For sticking with the healthy habits, I will get myself a new toy/tool. Feeds the geek in me, and supports the fitness work, too.

What's on YOUR wish list? emoticon

    Body lighting is a must if you're going to run after dusk or before dawn on public roads. It doesn't have to be terribly costly; my headlamp + taillight + reflective harness I hand the taillight on together cost less than a pair of running shoes. And replacing batteries for the lights is a lot cheaper than replacing the shoes!

    Yes, I have a wish list, but you are much braver than me concerning the outdoor workouts when it is dark outside. Many of the roads that I enjoy for my walks don't have any sidewalks and it can be tricky to have a plan of escape for the occasional driver who approaches much too close for comfort. I have not crossed over to the thought of being able to be outdoors to exercise at night yet.

OneKidsMom does anger management on two feet

Saturday, August 03, 2013


Beware, Barb's experimenting with new software... learning to merge her Webcam talks with her phone video... and today I'm sharing it with my Spark buds!

The things I'm having to manage anger about range from losing my sister in law waaaay too soon to my way of thinking to the tight time crunch and unrealistic expectations. And it's not just anger. Add sadness. Add fear or anxiety. Add in any negative emotion that could use a little "management". Here's what I'm doing about them these days.

    Love this blog -- it's great to hear your voice, see your face and share your gorgeous sunrise world.

I agree that "stress" is often unacknowledged anger. But -- sometimes that anger is a signal that something needs to change and we suppress it and call it "stress" because we're not ready yet to make the change.

You just mind find that "Mind Over Mood" workbook useful: I know I do when it's time to rethink management of the inevitable anxiety or depression that living life will generate!

HUGS and prayers and smiles.
