Now in my World Blessings on my birthday
Now in My World see all the blessing of birthdays
I guess Greeks have a name day that is really a Saints Day, which is what they celebrate. I can relate to that but my birthday has always been hard for me to accept that I need to celebrate. I worked in casinos since I was 19 years old, we worked double shifts on weekends and public holidays were always double shifts and no time off. So even my 21st was a double shift, I worked on cruise ships for 18 years where every day is a work day, with the odd day off, only the last few years did I arrange it that I was off that day, so I did not get embarrassed with an announcement of my birthday.
Last year this friend of mine Lesley put it in a way that made sense to me why people celebrate there birthday. Like the Greeks with the saints day you are celebrating the day you came into this world, which is a blessing, you are giving thanks for all the gifts you were given to be healthy, all your experiences and the unique person the universe created and your unique gift you were given, so you can give back to the universe. I am still trying to discover this gift I was given, I am trying to remember my childhood desires. Nothing comes to me; I wish to remember childhood memories as well. All seems to have left me. I will remember soon.
I approached this year differently; it is a big year for me one of the milestone ones as my nephew Kyle so delicately put it. It takes a thoughtless person or thoughtful person to say it as it is. I had all good intentions to go up the cableway to Table Mountain but lo and behold the weather was not playing along, it was not meant to be. I have not been up Table Mountain in 15 years or so; I will go up when the time is ready. It is one of the vortexes in this world wonderful energy surrounding, or it is on the ley lines I read a book on it once. I have never in all my years hiked up Table Mountain is that not a big shame. I have faced my fears of scuba diving; I actually passed my scuba diving, the panicky feeling when taking off the mask under the ocean.
Love & Joy Now in My World of Books
I seem to be attracted to books with Joy on I have progressed from love, peace now joy is following me around. There is light at the end of the tunnel.
I have finally got to reading, “eat, love and pray” the book after seeing the movie a couple of times. I also found a book on Expecting Adam, I had heard so much about this book, and I am finally going to read this. I found some books on Osho on Joy as well, this will have to wait, I have a queuing system going, so many books, I have to make time to read them. Some are like a reference library really, like New Earth from Eckart Tolle I keep going back to it whilst I see some of his DVD’s.
