First, thanks, you guys who wrote to cheer me up about having nothing left to write about. That made my heart happy. For some time I have been in a transition period – leaving the Lisa I was (for most of my life) and moving toward the Lisa that I am becoming. While both of them have the same core of goofiness and sweetness, the edge (or snark, if you will) seems to have dulled a bit. I still love to read the snark but I don’t seem to generate it the way I used to. Which is good, I suppose, because while snark is funny, it’s also sometimes pretty mean.
The Lisa I am becoming knows that thoughts are things. And they carry energy even if not expressed. So, while it may be fun and entertaining to rag on Britney or whomever, it’s also very mean-spirited and that’s not where I want to be. That’s most likely one of the reasons I’ve stepped back from reading so much about the current political scene. All of it is just nasty and I understand it’s the way of the world but it’s not where I want to spend my energy. (Much better off reading about my darling Cookie who is so nice that it’s taken everyone off guard.)
One of the things my dear Seminary advisor Katherine told me was that when one enters the Seminary, a period of purification occurs. I’d say since at least January, that has been happening to me. I left the other job for one where there is no drama. I realized that my work with Light Paths had morphed into something else entirely and I stepped back from that. (Alas, I see that work is not yet finished and I am being given the lesson of finding my voice and speaking it. That’s been a hard one. I’m glad I was given love and support and guidance through it.) And I’ve done some serious energy work on my physical body releasing a lot of stuff from years gone by. Big work, indeed.
Right now, I’ve taken off the shirt of the Lisa who was but have not yet stepped into the energy of who I am becoming. So, I stand here before you topless (and aren’t you all thrilled??), not yet able to put on (or even find) the new shirt. I will find it, I know that. And I appreciate you all hanging in here with me as I try to find that nice shirt that fits just right.
