Well. That was a wonderful retreat. It was all of the “re” things. Relaxing, renewing, recharging, refreshing. I’m sure there are more, but that’s all I can think of at the moment. I feel like a new person. To be honest, I was tempted to tack on another three days, but I don’t have any blog posts ready to go. Besides, a glance at my email makes it clear that I’ve gotten pretty far behind. There was a lot of blog posting going on while I was busy being not busy and doing things to take care of myself.
It’s hard to believe that I am going into my last 100 days of the Life in the Bogs Outdoors Challenge. I think I should have named it the Life in the Bogs Get Outdoors and Play Challenge as that seems more accurate. Although there have been days when I had to force myself to go out and it didn’t always feel like play at first, each adventure usually evolved into fun and play eventually.
True silence really means going deep within yourself to that place where nothing is happening, where you transcend time and space. You go into a brand new dimension of nothingness. That’s where all the power is. That’s your real home. That’s where you really belong, in deep Silence where there is no good or bad, no one trying to achieve anything. Just being, pure being… Silence is the ultimate reality.
