Lately I have been asking questions. Not questions of others but questions of myself. Most of these questions are about what affects me and how to improve my life, mind and spirit. Most people who know me know that I am not one to put my business out there but I think these questions, and my answers are productive to my life and therefore may be to others at least to make them think. In the spirit of sharing growth I figured that ever so often I will share my questions of the day. I hope they will enlighten your thought process and awaken your spirit as they do mine…
~How can the cycles of shedding and re-growth in nature teach me to let go?
I see the trees grow and shed every year. I see flowers die and grow in the same spot each year. Sometimes more beautiful than ever. The cycle of rebirth reminds me of the impermanence of it all. I must remember to let go as the earth does.
~Are my thoughts hampered by regrets of the past?
Sometimes. There are moments that I feel there is so much to regret and it brings me down. All the should haves and would haves can be numbing. But then I go on.
-Is my vision of the future supple enough that experience can guide me?
No. Because we tend to forget our experiences, I do. My vision is altered based on my day many times. I must be more present.
~How can I transform the idea of stress into being called to dance?
Focus less on the drama of life and breathe. Look at the beauty of what’s good despite your minds voice.
~Do I believe that as a human being, I am not connected to what I see?
No. I know that I’m connected but when you ignore connection, it may as well not exist. Human connection was not one of my greatest lessons in life.
~What give and take is required of me when I dance with a partner?
I must be more open to taking and accepting. It’s so difficult when you have been dancing alone for years, but I’m learning the two step.
I have many acquaintances but as I’ve reiterated before, few friends. Recently I had begun to think about the gay best friend dynamic. What is it that makes the friendship so unified. What makes women want to have that one gay best friend? I was watching Will and Grace the other day and could not help but be a little jealous that I have never had a male bestie. I would love to have a real male friend who I could really be that honest with and he with me. All of this made me wonder what is all the hype about and is there a real Will and Grace out there.
What is the recipe? Is it the fact that it’s a friendship like no other? Is it that you can actually get the benefits of actually being best friends with the opposite sex without all of the complications of attraction? The jury is still out on that one, I really don’t know. The truth of it for me is that it looks fun. You can get all the secrets into men’s souls and not have to worry that the confidant will come on to you lol. You can share ideas and get honest answers.
Let’s be honest ladies we love our men but most of them don’t want to hear a out female issues or give you the gods honest truth a out them either. No man out there want to divulge the male code or break the man law. Anyhow these are the questions that cruise through my head on a daily basis I wanted to share it with you? Has this ever crossed your mind? Do tell.
