Back to basics

In today's audioblog, I talk about the basics of my Creative Mindfulness practice: the three things I try to do every day to strengthen my spiritual and creative muscles.

Here are some web-links to accompany my audioblog:
Enjoy!

Thank you! I've been feeling so stuck and uninspired lately, and I will be following your suggestions to hopefully start a creative flow again.

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your Designer/Architect
as well as your audience.

Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose. A
time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
Howdy

Lorianne!

Your voice isn't what I imagined. Then again, I'm usually wrong about such things. You sound so serious!

Anyway, welcome, Lorianne et sa belle voix, to the world of audioblogging! I enjoyed what I heard. You could start your own radio show. It'd be a welcome alternative to the Ann Coulters, the Dr. Lauras, and Air America.

Hapjang,


Kevin

What the hell is Howdy smoking?

Can I say "hell" on a Zen blog?

This is wonderful work, L., I shall attend with attention. Or, as we like to say, "notice."

Yes, Lorianne, it's crazy to start another blog! But congratulations! It's also a great idea and I'm sure it will be very well received.

Bravo!! Very well done. As you can see, I'm working my way from oldest to new trying to catch up with this new adventure of yours!!

 
At 7:13 AM, Blogger Lorianne said...

Hey, everyone--thanks for the supportive comments! I'm trying to approach this new blog as an experiment: whether it works out or not, I'll definitely learn something. And I hope some other folks learn stuff along the way, too!

Kevin, I'll try to lighten up in future posts. In these first several, I've been concentrating on saying what I want to say in the 5 minute time frame that AudioBlogger gives you to work with!

And Abdul-Walid, you can say "hell" here anytime. And yeah, I want some of whatever Howdy's having... ;-)

I listened to your audioblog post and am hooked. I'm rededicated to doing the three basic things. Or at least making what I do of them more of a conscious effort.

Cody, many folks think meditation is a weird & complicated thing when actually it's very, very simple. If there's anything difficult about meditation, it's the pure simplicity of it. We want things to be complicated & exciting, but meditation is very simple & ordinary. It's the pure taste of vanilla versus a hot fudge super-sundae with peanut butter sauce and candy sprinkles! :-)

Hi,

Dr. Howdy said this at my blog, too. He posts from proxy servers from all around the globe and uses many different personalities to convey this mental spam.

Regards,
Coral
