One of the things I love about my Happy Mondays is that I write them in real time on Monday mornings. They’ve become a wonderful tool for me to be more present to life. I review what’s happened during the week, and I also get to project a little forward into next week to see what might be interesting and pertinent to share with you, my beloved community.
This Happy Monday, however, is a little different in that I’m writing it substantially prior to Monday morning. By the time you read this, Kenn and I will be well ensconced in the city of Cairo in Egypt. I’m knowing we’ll have jumped over all the hurdles that travel requires in our “new age” and who knows what we’ll be doing as you read this! The time difference is 10 hours. As I’m writing this at 11:15am, our time, it’s 9:15pm in Cairo — and 23 degrees! Yum!
I feel so very blessed to be able to travel. It’s funny, it was never really top of what I enjoyed doing. In fact, Kenn and I never took a honeymoon until we actually started to travel, and then we sort of arbitrarily decided to call one of our trips “our honeymoon.” I just didn’t have the travel bug until we started to travel — and then I did. I think prior to travelling, I was just so darned comfortable living in a world I knew and was familiar with. However, once my eyes and mind were opened, seeing newness by travelling all over the “Divine place” became a loved activity.
We were very fortunate that Kenn’s position as Spiritual Leader of the international organization of Centers for Spiritual Living created a lot of travel opportunities to many places that I’m sure we never would have dreamt of going — the Ukraine, Kenya, and Europe were definitely among the highlights. We experienced sights, sounds and people that were varied and definitely different! What a blessing it has been to see much of the world while keeping top of mind that we are One (but for sure we are not the same). Travel has afforded us such an education in freedom, culture, history, people and various food adventures! I’m so blessed and grateful to have the actual experience of witnessing so many varied aspects of humanity and the human experience. It’s humbling to know that there isn’t just one ‘right’ way to live, to speak, to get around and to eat! Spirit is truly diverse in its expressions and I’m thankful to be able to have a first-hand experience of that.
I found this great travel quote. I think its a great metaphor for an open mind for all of life:
The traveller sees what he sees, the tourist sees what he has come to see.
— Gilbert K. Chesterton
I am so grateful for the opportunities my life has afforded me and I give all acknowledgement and gratitude to the Science of Mind teaching which has given me the tools to create a path to follow.
In gratitude, Dr. Deborah
