Fear and Gratitude

As the community fear of Covid-19 swirls around me, and drifts into my consciousness, as well as my unconscious mind, I am finding it a blessing to remember and dwell in gratitude for all of the many blessings in my life, even if it’s not the life that I had planned.

Who Am I? Who Are You?

Who am I?
Who are You?

Richard Edward Ward

Have you ever asked yourself the question “Who am I? Why was I born?”

I know that I have asked those two questions as well as other related questions.

I have also notice over the decades that I also talk about myself in what appears to be the third person.

And I suspect that you probably do the same thing.

  • My body aches today.
  • My mind feels foggy today.
  • My arm is sore.
  • What is going on in my life?
  • I need to make up my mind.

It can go on and on.

So who is the ‘my’ that’s talking about the ‘body’ or the ‘mind’?

It seems to me that “I AM’ and I am not my body, or my mind.

What do you know or think about who you are?

Your diet is not only what you eat

Your diet is not only what you eat.

It is what you think and your constant self-talk,
what you watch,
what you listen to,
what you read,
and the people you hang around.

Be mindful of the things you put into your body mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically.
