Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see – Mark Twain

Someone enquired today how I had achieved the almost Zen like float I have going on. No, I have not taken to drink, mind altering substances or chocolate. Not meditating for hours on end, performing a ritual at sunrise or ‘doing’ anything in particular either.

I have consciously lifted all pressure off my mind, regardless of what is going on around me. I am ‘in’ this moment. So right now I am writing, with music playing softly, and I am smiling. I am holding onto kind thoughts, saying kind things and pouring forth kindness.

    You make me smile, Jane. You truly “get it.”

    Maxi says: If you cry over yesterday and fret about tomorrow; you lose the joy of today.

    Hugs and Blessings to you, friend – Maxi

    🙂 This is all….all there is. That is the true experience of freedom (of life): having the most important thing in the world without owning it. And there is no love quite like loving yourself enough to allow a moment of uncontested bliss! Love you, Jane. ~ Bobbie
