Blogging!

Cynthia Blantons blog is always full of great info. Today it's about blogging and being alerted when your favorite blogs have been updated without having to go there first.

Ok, so I've taken some time out, don't be too quick to scold me. I have a husband with a lame foot so everything he normally does, I have to do. Y'know, nothing like a little wake up call to appreciate the ones you love is there? Anyway, it's been a pleasure to look after him these last few days...till about midday...then I start to get antsy and by evening I'm ready to snap. LOL! Eckhart Tolle ( Oprahs favorite right now) would say to bring some awareness to the emotion...not to fuel it with more thoughts but simply to watch it arise and recognise it as habit of the ego. And ya know, it's true. Cos when these feelings come up and I simply watch them, not trying to engage them, not trying to change them, not pushing them away, not resisting them, not even having an opinion about them, just simply let them be there and watch...they disappear! Yes, really! So while I haven't been claying AT ALL, I have been on another creative journey...an inner creative journey. And all cos of Curt's bung foot! Blessings come in all kinds of ways...

so ya hurt poor Curt's foot eh? It is amazing when one gets wake up calls like that. The journey is amazing.

My wake up these last three weeks has been NOT being able to clay due to floor redo. Today I finally started working on getting my studio together. I am chomping at the bit. A blessing being made to take the time off.

Hi Melanie!
I've tried to read Eckhart Tolle's book and just haven't been able to get into it so good for you if it's working!!!! It sounds almost too good to be true but I'm going to have to really try...maybe just a chapter at a time.
Do set up Google Reader when you have a chance. It takes just a second and then you can pull it up each day and only the blogs that have new posts show up. I love reading the blogs when I first get up with a cup of coffee and now I don't have to pull each one up to see if there's anything new. It's sort of like reading the "news" each morning while I wake up!
I hope your "blessings" can change course soon!

Hiya Kathi, with luck we both get to clay by the weekend eh!
Susan, great to hear from you. I've set my google reader up, it's FABulous. Regarding Eckhart Tolle's new book, I know what you mean. That's why I downloaded all the audios of the webcast of his talks with Oprah on Oprah.com. Much easier to understand while listening...the book (A New Earth) came later for me and makes much more sense now...
