Every day, I am dropping deeper and deeper into my bliss. Love
has triggered this opening of my heart. I feel a heightened sensitivity to the
world around me where everything is
profoundly interconnected. (Yes, yes… I know I sound like a total hippy.)

Everything that did not work for me has either left my life
entirely or is in the process of changing. Some of these things – emotional,
mental and spiritual – I was already aware of. The physical things, like my landlord
out of the blue deciding to install a new stove (symbolically the ‘heart’ of
the home) and the following day, the sewage removal from the sesspit in my
garden (the literal removal of shit from my life) are welcome manifestations of
some of these changes that show me I must be doing something right.

What I have learned is to TRUST myself… let go instead of trying
to control things and go with that flow. Be open, especially when it’s painful
because that’s when we often shut down completely and, before we know it, we
are continually in ‘defence-mode’ by default – then you may just as well be
wearing a big sign on your back saying “KICK ME” (or worse).

When a rose unfurls its delicate petals, it naturally lifts
its face to the sun… and the wind… and rain. It’s natural to grow – to open
and hold your head high; to stand proud in grace and beauty and fearlessly weather
what comes. There is strength in being a rose (Eros).
