There are lots of things that amaze me in this world.
I was at a party at an amazing house last weekend, and saw things at the party that amazed me. We made some amazingly good home-made ice cream; two kinds — strawberry and peach. The rapidity with which both batches disappeared was quite astonishing.
Then the entertainment began, and I witnessed my husband writing a question down on a sheet of paper and handing it to someone else. Then the entertainer, without asking Jim any questions or engaging him in conversation, wrote down the answer to his question on another piece of paper. As if that wasn’t amazing enough, he then proceeded to bend forks using only the power of his mind. I have one of the forks he bent, I was holding it at the time when he bent the head over, and then he took it in his hands bent the tine.
No, I don’t know how he does this. But I suspect it is simply a different branch on the path of mind work that I walk down on a daily basis when I am doing massage and working with people’s energy bodies.
What else amazes me?
The capacity that my dog has for adoring me. The fact that Jim and I found each other. By the way, we are gearing up for our 25th wedding anniversary August 10. We’ll be spending a couple of nights in a fabulous hotel in St. Louis, and eating a scrumptious dinner on the actual day. In fact, I am amazed that we have been together that long. It just doesn’t seem like that much time has passed.
Those two pictures were taken five days apart, same nest, same babies. It amazes me how fast baby birds grow.
I am also amazed at the diversity of life, and at the way dragonflies and butterflies fly.
I am continually amazed at the ability of people to engage in ill-will, to hold grudges. It saddens me, because I think that holding grudges is a waste of energy. I am even willing to go so far as to say it is a perversion of energy, and the power that people use to hold grudges and remain angry affects their health, both mentally and physically.
I am amazed by the hypocrisy that people can indulge in, seemingly unaware of their propensity for it.
I am also amazed when a person who has been motivated to work out for two whole days in a row starts giving advice on how to be motivated to keep at it long enough to see results. Personally, I would have thought that perhaps maybe it would be more convincing to wait to regurgitate the “What works for me” information until it had actually worked for more than two days. But that is just me. I mean, I didn’t start telling people what I did to successfully lose weight until I had actually lost 20 pounds. And now that total is up to 38. Hopefully before the end of the year I will have carved off another 10 pounds.
Another thing that amazes me is that once again, my Blogoversary went past and I didn’t notice it. As of July 25, I have now been a blogger for 4 years. It just doesn’t seem possible. In the course of that time, I have written 866 posts, received 221,080 views and 6024 comments.
Thank you all for coming! You amaze me.
