Kerm and I recently celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary. During those fifty years we’ve gone through challenges and heart ache. But we have also experienced more happiness and joy than we ever could have imagined when we first began our journey together.
The wonderful news is that we still love one another. I still get excited to see him come home. He makes me laugh and teaches me to relax and not take myself too seriously. He is a great father to our children and no grandfather could be more loving or more proud of his grand children.
Tomorrow night we begin a special vacation in honor of our anniversary. Soon we’ll sail away with 35 of our children, grand children and siblings. What a delightful time we’ll have. We are honored that so many are coming with us. This will definitely be a once in a lifetime experience.
As we are cruising around the Caribbean, I will be temporarily out of touch with my blog. But I will resume our conversations October 8th. For now I would like to leave you with some thoughts to ponder.
We are all aware that our outer bodies normally appear to grow old and wither. But if you ask anyone who is older how their inner body (energy body) feels, they will tell you it has not aged. As we grow older we may feel our inner body energy more deeply, but the energy itself does not change. Our twenty year old inner body (energy body) does not feel any different at age eighty. You feel just as vibrantly alive no matter what your age.
One of the best ways to bring yourself into the precious moment of NOW is to focus on your energy – your aliveness. When you can take the focus from your mind’s preoccupaton with past and future to this present moment, your physical body will feel lighter, clearer and more alive. When you increase the consciousness in your body, its molecular structure atually becomes less dense. More consciousness lessens the illusion of materiality.
Eckhart Tolle in The Power of Now says; “When you become identified more with the timeless inner body than with the outer body, when presence becomes your normal mode of consciousness and past and future no longer dominate your attention, you do not accumulate time anymore in your psyche and in the cells of the body. The accumulation of time as the psychological burden of past and future greatly impares the cells’ capacity for self-renewal. So if you inhabit the inner body, the outer body will grow old at a much slower rate. and even when it does, your timeless essence will shine through the outer form, and you will not give the appearance of an old person.” Now there’s some good anti-aging advice.
For now, Earlynn’s just sayin’: “For everything there is a season. Now is the season to cruise with my loved ones. I’ll be back soon.”
