Welcome 2010

Happy New Year! Ahhh... the first day an exceptional year. I can feel it, this year will be extra especially great. I bet you can feel it too, right?

I am writing this on December 26 and setting it to post on my usual first of the month because on the 1st, I won't be writing. In fact, I won't be speaking or reading either. I will be five days in to ten days of meditation. I am doing a course in Vipassana, which means to see things as they really are.

It has been interesting to see the various reactions I get after telling people what I will be doing over the holidays. Many people wouldn't want to do it. One person said it would be harmful and another person worried that I wouldn't be allowed to stop if I wanted to. On the other hand, it is highly recommended by some friends.

I'm excited for this new experience. However, I'm not sure if it will help me to see things as they really are though because so far it seems that there is "no way" that things really are. I see things as I am. Perhaps, to a greater extent, I will see things as they really are because I will be able to more clearly see how I am.

I imagine that being in silence and meditation for 10 days will be a life-changing, inward journey. I intend to gain clarity, depth and sensitivity in perception and to nurture my perspective and priorities of well-being, peace, calm and ease no matter what is going on around me.

I'm not one for chit-chat and am looking forward to not speaking. I already know from my playroom experiences how profoundly important, revealing and connection-building SILENCE between two people is. I crave it and suspect that being silent amongst others will help me connect more fully with myself.

Stay tuned for my sharing on February 1st and have a wonderful month!
