“Perhaps the reason that we do not get enough enlightenment these days is because we do not take the time to sit under a tree” ~Satish Kumar

I clearly need to spend more time sitting under trees! It sure would be nice if that was all it took to reach enlightenment, eh?

Unfortunately, the path is not quite that easy—at least it isn’t for me.

Today has been a rough day, and I am just plain crabby. None of the reasons are any big deal: a bad sinus headache stretching into day four, day two of severe menstrual cramps (yes, I know, TMI), and a passel of little frustrations and disappointments.

None of these should be enough to affect my mood, but I obviously have not yet reached a sufficiently enlightened state of detachment. I am sure tomorrow will be a much better day, even if I have to spend the day sitting under a tree to make it so!

But for today I am just going to take my crabby self to bed early and wish you all a delightful weekend!


A Note on Comments: A chrysalis is by nature a very fragile place, and it takes a good deal of vulnerability to share this personal journey of transformation so openly. Therefore, I need this to be a safe place for exploration and sharing for me and for my readers. Comments sharing your own journey, even if your experience is different from mine, are always welcome and encouraged. Expressions of support or encouragement are also welcome. Comments that criticize, disparage, correct, or in any way attempt to undermine the validity of another person’s experience or personal insight—or the expression of that experience or insight—are NOT welcome here and will be deleted.

      I’ve taken a look at your blog. Although we are obviously coming from very different circumstances, it sounds like we are on a similar journey of transformation. Thank you for sharing my journey with me. I will look forward to reading more about your journey in the days ahead.

  2. Crabby is real, and part of grounded spirituality and being human, methinks. 🙂 So we’ll DEFINITELY keep crabby you, esp. if you want to blog through it!

    Hope you’re feeling better soon, my friend! xx
