Imagine Loving Yourself Unconditionally

Imagine loving.
Imagine loving yourself unconditionally.
Imagine loving yourself unconditionally this moment.

Gently breathe in: I am now loving myself unconditionally.

Notice how your body responds.
Notice how you respond to Life.
Notice how Life responds to you.

April Mantra:
This too shall pass.
I am not my thoughts.
I am the awareness of my thoughts.
I am the Artist of my Creation.

I Did It! I Met the Deadline!

Or did “I”?

Mac brainstormed another way to hold and apply the brush.
Lydia advised which type of canvas was best and why.
Brittany gave me protected space.
T-Bird showed me the Aisle of Iridescence.
David reminded me to unplug. Totally.
Dr. Sam aka Simmone coached me to get to the other side.
Catherine rephotographed at the last minute to meet the 7″ x 7″, 300 dpi requirements.
Zana was my listening ear when the gremlins needed to be put onto the back parking lot.

“I” didn’t do it. It was the Strong Mountain Mandala that did it.

“I” was just fortunate to be at the center of the mandala this time around.
