Starting A Business

Hello, loves!

Just wanted to let everyone know that I am going full time into the land of self-employment.

Something I've been doing for years, in the broom closet, so to speak.

I'll give more details soon.

Religion

I realized recently that no one has asked me what my religion is in a very long time.  I think it's because my lifestyle makes it look like I have none to the people in my community.  I have noticed that, when asked, most of the people around me claim Christianity despite having no outward clues of having any spiritual beliefs whatsoever, even in conversation.

Why do you suppose people claim faith that they clearly don't live by?

The Practice of Detachment

Detachment is, in my opinion, the art of loving everything and everyone but not caring about the who, what, when, where, why, or how. 

In my personal practice of detachment, I can describe it as being a LOT like being severely depressed (you know, at that point where you don't care about ANYTHING), but completely happy.  Blissfully so, even.

I have six children.  For most of their lives I've felt like they were mine, they belonged to me.  I started to realize that they were actually separate beings from me when I was forced to start giving them up (one due to divorce and two due to them moving out when they were grown) and none of us died.  Now I accept that, even though I'm important to them, I'm not vital to them.

So I've gotten to a point now that I'm choosing to rid myself of belongings that I don't need and am only hanging onto for sentimental reasons.  It's really been so freeing.  The fewer things I "own", the less scared I am of losing things.  The less scared I become, the more fulfilled and happy I am.  It's truly amazing.
