No Idea

September 25th is the day of my first public unveiling of my book and new thinking related to adjusting to loss and change in our lives.  I’ve been sitting here at my desk for the past few weeks wondering how I’m going to put together/structure my talk.  I’ve thought about topics, using PowerPoint, reading from my book and live streaming, playing music, singing one of my songs, being introduced, not being introduced, etc.  As I sit here right now I have no idea what I’m going to do.  Maybe, I’ll just let it happen.  Giddy-up

New Frontier

Today is the 272nd day I’ve written a blog post.  Over 271 days ago I started writing my thoughts in a daily message and posting on my web site http://www.mkanthony.com

During that time I have set my attention on being authentic and honest in all of my posts.  Next week on September 25th I am embarking on a new venture into the speaking and presentation field.  It has always been a desire of mine to speak and interact with audiences and after 271 days of writing my thoughts in this blog and on Facebook and Linkeden, I’m beginning this new journey.  While my writing will continue, I look forward to speaking and marketing my new book “Living and Dying”  I’m looking forward to an authors workshop and book signing at Barnes and Nobel, Pittsford Plaza store soon.

This months event will take place on September 25, from 4-6pm. I will be presenting a talk on “Finding Love and Hope on Life’s Journey”. We will be meeting in our funeral home at 2305 Monroe Avenue.  If anyone is interested, or if you know someone who might be, contact me at mark@anthonychapels.com If you miss this opportunity, my intention is to do talks periodically through the year.

Finding our way

Are you someone who understands we all emanate from the same source, that we are all essentially one, and that we are here on earth to love one another. Are you someone who understands that all of what we think and feel is most often related to our past relationships and experiences. Are you someone who understands that our frustration in watching others behave selfishly, rudely, and unconsciously needs to  end.  If you’re someone who understand this, who is awake to our true nature, you are a blessing.

It helps to think of us all as different parts of one psyche. Just as within our own hearts and minds we have dark places that need healing, the heart and mind of the world has its dark places. It helps to remember the health of the whole organism depends upon the relative health of the individuals within it. And, it helps to remember, we increase harmony when we hold onto the light, not allowing it to be darkened by judgment, anger, and fear about those who behave unconsciously.

It helps to remember that everyone must find their own way to awakening and that the experiences we are having are an essential part of the process. Holding them in the light of our own energy may be the best way to awaken theirs.  Giddy-up

Surprise

Every day we are met with wonders beyond our imagination and simple acts that inspire a deep sense of awe.  Yet most often these occurrences go unnoticed as we’ve come to see them as ordinary. If we tuned into what was happening around us with deeper awareness, we might be surprised at what unfolds: the key turning in the ignition to start our car’s engine or the bodily processes that operate tirelessly to keep us alive. Each of these, though simple on the surface, can be hard for the mind to explain. Surprise is a seed and gratefulness sprouts up when we rise to the challenge of surprise.  Giddy-up

Holding space

Did you ever wonder why, when you get together with a long lost friend you haven’t seen in many years, that you start off right where you left off before?  I have.  It’s as if the relationship is still the same as it was, like I have been holding that special place with that special person within me, somehow throughout the years, and I didn’t even know it.  Perhaps it’s because there hasn’t been any personal interaction that could kill the buzz or affect the relationship in any way.  Perhaps it’s because I wanted too, or perhaps it’s because I have an infinite ability to hold space and hold on to relationships I choose.  Perhaps it’s because there is an infinite space available within me that I didn’t realize.

How many relationships can we hold?  How much are we really capable of?  I sense much more than we think.  Giddy-Up

Write a song

Yesterday I was going to write a song, a song about holding space. Holding space in relationships to ourselves and others.  The idea stems from the many changes we face in life and what and where we put our attention and priorities.  It could be a love song, a break up song or a song about life in general.  I beleive there is a song in each of us and we are all capable of writing it.  In fact, we write it everyday in our actions and relationships, so, all we need to do is put it down.  Giddy-up
