In a moment, I asked myself, “Is there space 4hideousness? Is there space 4shame & terror? Yes. Yes, there is. There’s room 4it all. End of story.”

In that instant, my attention turned away from a random story I was telling myself to the spaciousness of my being. I was freshly at home, where we always are!

Just like the stars and the fireflies. 🙂

In knowing who I am in truth, there is nothing to fear. No emotion, no thought, no loss can trample the truth of my being.

The inherent, ever present peace of the open heart is the true sanctuary.

Not that I can avoid pain as a human being, but when it comes, I can be true to the recognition —> the heart gracefully, peacefully holds it all in love, and for me that is living freely and living consciously.

“When love beckons to you follow him, Though his ways are hard and steep. And when his wings enfold you yield to him, Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you. And when he speaks to you believe in him, Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden. For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning. Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun, So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth……

But if in your fear you would seek only love’s peace and love’s pleasure, Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love’s threshing-floor, Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears. Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.

Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; For love is sufficient unto love. And think not you can direct the course of love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course. Love has no other desire but to fulfil itself.”

But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires: To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. To know the pain of too much tenderness. To be wounded by your own understanding of love; And to bleed willingly and joyfully.”
― Khalil GibranLe Prophète

Reasons You May Not Get Sleep.

Tips for a Good Night’s Sleep:

  • Set a schedule:

Go to bed at a set time each night and get up at the same time each morning. Disrupting this schedule may lead to insomnia. “Sleeping in” on weekends also makes it harder to wake up early on Monday morning because it re-sets your sleep cycles for a later awakening.

  • Exercise:

Try to exercise 20 to 30 minutes a day. Daily exercise often helps people sleep, although a workout soon before bedtime may interfere with sleep. For maximum benefit, try to get your exercise about 5 to 6 hours before going to bed.

  • Avoid caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol:

Avoid drinks that contain caffeine, which acts as a stimulant and keeps people awake. Sources of caffeine include coffee, chocolate, soft drinks, non-herbal teas, diet drugs, and some pain relievers. Smokers tend to sleep very lightly and often wake up in the early morning due to nicotine withdrawal. Alcohol robs people of deep sleep and REM sleep and keeps them in the lighter stages of sleep.

  • Relax before bed:

A warm bath, reading, or another relaxing routine can make it easier to fall sleep. You can train yourself to associate certain restful activities with sleep and make them part of your bedtime ritual.

  • Sleep until sunlight:

If possible, wake up with the sun, or use very bright lights in the morning. Sunlight helps the body’s internal biological clock reset itself each day. Sleep experts recommend exposure to an hour of morning sunlight for people having problems falling asleep.

  • Don’t lie in bed awake:

If you can’t get to sleep, don’t just lie in bed. Do something else, like reading, watching television, or listening to music, until you feel tired. The anxiety of being unable to fall asleep can actually contribute to insomnia.

  • Control your room temperature:

Maintain a comfortable temperature in the bedroom. Extreme temperatures may disrupt sleep or prevent you from falling asleep.

  • See a doctor if your sleeping problem continues:

If you have trouble falling asleep night after night, or if you always feel tired the next day, then you may have a sleep disorder and should see a physician. Your primary care physician may be able to help you; if not, you can probably find a sleep specialist at a major hospital near you. Most sleep disorders can be treated effectively, so you can finally get that good night’s sleep you need.

How to deal with conflict to get @RecoveryRelief

image

You may be faced with a conflict or challenge when someone draws an unfair line, but it is up to you how you handle it.
You can walk away gracefully from any unfriendly encounters when someone is trying to stir up trouble, and you have the option of remaining peaceful and neutral.
If you aren’t one to pick a fight, or to engage in someone else’s battle either, that’s a very wise choice, because you still remain true to yourself and defend your ideals in an intelligent, evolved manner.

Do you ‘unplug’ and take a virtual vacation?

It may be a good idea, and it’s not just on weekends anymore!
Remember: Sleeping and eating well is vital for your overall well-being; as is exercise, like swimming (which works wonders too!).
Also, remember to take time seeing the back of your eyelids after reading a lot (especially if it’s done on a bright screen).

This is for all #peopleunited4recoveryrelief who ‘happened to’ #stumbleupon developing #hashtagitis symptoms, perhaps as a #twitterholic #in need of a way to #amplify #hotmail items as a way to get #relief from getting #myspace being to cluttered.
A ‘home sweet home’ as a #technology ‘place’ that one can ‘#google over’ with lots of addresses like #EmpireAvenue to #facebook themselves (&or an entity) all over the place is a wonderfully perfect place to be. Eternally.

#ThankYOU very much! 🙂
