     In July I'm headed to Yogaville to live in an ashram for a month.  Living in the city of Austin for so long, working in Emergency Medicine, and being a perfectionist - I am continually getting adjusted to quiet and relaxation.  I'm making progress and I feel this will be a very good way to assist me in on my spiritual journey.  

    I look forward to sharing my upcoming experiences with you in August!
    Until then...
    BE Love & know that I Love You!

    Time Flies When I'm Loving Life

     I've been having such a wonderful time here in "the magic bubble" that I haven't kept up with my regular blogging duties.  Oh Well.  I'm here now and that's what counts.

    In October, I took a required class called Higher States of Consciousness.  I ended up with an A- and completely happy!!!  It was a little tough for me to comprehend  subjective experience without having an experience myself.  So I was feeling a bit frustrated at one point.  Eventually, I just let go and completed my projects and test from the perspective of my Higher Self, my intuition.  It all worked out just fine.

    In November, I was an intern in the student outreach program of the David Lynch Foundation. Our focus was to build a foundation to create film screenings for DLF.TV's newest documentary "Meditation Creativity Peace."  The target audience is primarily college & university students across the nation and world, but we hope that people will host viewings in their homes for family and friends, too.  If you are interested in seeing the film for yourself, please leave a comment or contact me.

    I enjoyed the internship so much, that I've decided to continue for another block. I look forward to seeing the work that we've already completed come to fruition.  There is a screening scheduled in December at the University of Michigan that I should be attending with one of my intern partners.  I can't wait to be a part of something bigger, not to mention the road-trip to some place new.  Two of my favorite people are from that area, so it'll be fun to talk about it with them after I return.

    The skies are so fantastic here!  I'm always amazed and the beauty of it from the Fairfield vantage point.  I'm trying to stay outside as much as possible, especially on sunny days.  It's cold - it's only snowed once.  People keep saying "it's not cold yet," I immediately ask them to keep their opinions to themselves  ;)

    Amidst the cold are some warm days, too.  I'm actually really grateful for the frequent changes between rain, cold, wind, and sun, because it's helping me acclimate.  Once the sun sets, the temperature drastically falls, so it's time to snuggle!
    I've learned to open my heart on a continual basis and have made such progress, yet I have more learning to do.  Knowing that I am always safe in the arms of the Universe, I work through my vulnerabilities and ask for help with expanding my creative side.  

    I've gotten to know so many wonderful people over the last two months.  The more time I spend around them, the more I love them!!!  Time at The Farm, time walking around town, time hiking and bicycling with friends, time watching movies in the basement of 141...time is irrelevant here - the experience is counting so much more for me here.  One big lesson I've learned is how to "go with the Flow."  I no longer plan anything.  Before I got here I planned everything and was attached to my calendar.  NOT ANYMORE!  I feel such freedom!!!  

    My life is full of love!  I am love.  What a wonderful world I live in.  I hope you are finding your truth, too!!!  It's a beautiful place to BE.
