What a relief! It's Spring Break and I'm off until the 26th. It's a mental relief for sure.
I attended the funeral yesterday for the lady I previously mentioned. What a lovely service celebrating her life. I spent a great deal of time before and after the service greeting friends and family whom I've not seen for years. It was good to be in a place where I am loved. That is the only thing I miss about church. The dogma and doctrine and perversion of what and who God is, the human-made rules and edicts that distort the true meaning of a creative spiritual truth drove me away, and keeps me away. The sense of family and community are what I miss.
Truly, spring break, springtime in general, and memorial services celebrating life, all remind me to dwell on the renewal, and rebirth, and life. These things bring me back to the roots of my relationship to Master, to the dragonflies W/we love, the symbol of new life. All that is old is new again.
At the moment, I don't feel physically or mentally or emotionally renewed. I'm hopefully believing that a week away from work will help me recharge the energy stores and refill the empty sand bucket of me.
