I like the feeling here. "to allow all good to come into my life."
There's a way our society keeps thinking "if I'm bad I don't deserve" "if I'm good I deserve all kinds of stuff." Like...good people should flourish and if I don't, I must be a bad person. It doesn't work out that way. Still we keep believing. It's what we learned as kids, I think. Good kids get treats and to go out and play. Bad behavior means I don't get good stuff. I donno. The whole concept is interesting. I think harmful, to most of us. I'm just off on a pondering here, brought to mind by your blog.
"to allow good" into your life. I sure like that. To feel worthy of it. To feel YES I CAN take action and move forward and LET myself have good stuff. Sounds like a plan!
Thanks by the way for you lovely and fascinating response to my blog on wearing a bright purple hat to my step dad's funeral. I love the idea of "rainbow" colors at a funeral. I like the idea you mentioned, in southern African American funerals, to mix in a celebration of life.
In New Orleans they do that by dancing, serving food, playing music, walking together down the street. I think that must be better. To celebrate, in the midst of pain.
THANKS! Now I can think of that purple hat with more happiness.
