Get Lost! #21/2014

Has anyone ever told you to “Get lost!”? Well, I am telling you now. I don’t mean as in go away and don’t bother me. I mean get lost doing something you love to do; something so absorbing that you totally lose all track of time. For me, I often lose myself in my artwork or writing. More recently, I find I lose myself when facilitating a meditation group. And, what “self” am I losing? The small, ego self that I call Paula. I’m learning that losing our small self is no loss at all. In fact, it is the best thing we can possibly do! When we are “lost” in the creative moment, we lose our sense of limitation and allow our true, higher self to shine through. The love that we are gets a chance to express in wondrous ways.

I go back to what Michael Beckwith says. “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask yourself what is it that you love to do. Then, do that. That’s what the world needs, more people joyfully doing what they love to do.”

What is it that you love to do? I encourage you to make space in your day to do it. Go ahead.


Let your spirit soar!

In order for this story to make sense, I must begin by telling you that, besides our deep love for each other, my late, ex-husband, Roger, and I also shared a similarity in our birthdates. All the numbers are either fives or ones and we were both born in 1951. He passed away eight years ago. After all this time, I unexpectedly received something in the mail regarding him that I needed to respond to. So, for the past few days, he has been on my mind.

Apparently, I have been on his as well.

The other morning, right after sending an email in response to the letter I had received, I decided to check and see if a recently published article of mine could be viewed online. I discovered that it could. When I went to “Share it with a friend”, I was stunned to see the security code. As you know, the codes are usually gibberish and difficult to read. This one could not have been clearer.


Over the years, I have so often felt Roger’s presence. I have more stories than you can imagine! Sometimes, though, I will go a while without thinking about our deep connection. Somehow, he always finds a way to remind me.

Let your spirit soar!
