There is an old sitcom called the Andy Griffith Show where Gomer Pyle is sitting by himself with a bucket on his head. When Andy asked him why he had the bucket on his head, his reply was that he was “just thinkin” and went on to explain that he was “thinkin about how much thinkin I can do with this here bucket on my head.” Sometimes in life we need that bucket on the head. I find myself lately being distracted by everything and anything. I sit down to meditate and all of a sudden a light catches my attention or a sound shakes me back to the physical.
Shutting out distractions is impossible unless one is in a soundproof room with nothing on the walls. Unless you have a bucket, of course! So today I am putting on the bucket. I’m shutting out anything that will pull me away from what I need to focus on. My journey right now is such that quiet time is necessary and much wanted. Solitude brings perspective. I will allow myself to be gentle with me. I will not focus on anything other than what is my best and highest good.
I have had many responses to yesterday’s blog and I appreciate everyone who has reached out to me. As I said before, if I do not respond it is because I am working on finishing my book which is due out in a few days and allowing myself time also for meditation and prayer. Comments on this blog page are welcomed as I will see them when I log in to write. This journey is an interesting one. I ask that you not judge. Yes, I understand what you are sharing with me and I totally believe in miracles and self-healing. I’m on it! If you know me at all, you know I have been taking care of myself and am up to date on nutrition, alkalizing, and everything needed for ultimate health. I simply ask you to hold me up in prayer and send positive energy my way (including funny stuff as laughter raises the vibration) and let me do the work I need to do to heal. I appreciate you more than you know. I love you!
