I don’t know why, but reading this “Tomorrow November 7th kicks off our challenge with the uber -talented, sweet, and incredibly creative Shree!”, made me feel like this
It’s called the Sense-sational Blogging Challenge and is hosted by Linda from Litebeing Chronicles. She does have more dates to fill up, so for all you Nano Pobalnos who may want to try it, hop on over there!
Sense-sational Blogging Challenge
One of my favourite quotes by – I can’t remember his name, but he’s French, and he’s a philosopher, and he isn’t around anymore – is: “We are spiritual beings on a human experience”.
I love this because it’s cool. My mind loves it because…well, it does give him something to chew on, and I think I love it because in a way it helps me take a step back and observe my life instead of becoming completely tangled in the emotions that it gives rise to.
It follows one of the teachings of Buddhism about detachment.
So, being a spiritual being reincarnated on this beautiful planet called Earth, within the third dimension with other spiritual beings, I am here to experience life and all that it offers. That includes experiencing the sensations brought by our five senses.
There are two parts to this challenge:
- Which sense(s) brings me joy and delight.
- How does it bring meaning to my life.
Ask a person who lives in her head almost all the time the two questions above, no wonder I looked like this:
So, I thought and thought about it. And I settled on sight.
Sight brings me joy and delight, and it rhymes too!
Taste – I don’t know. I don’t really enjoy tastes of much of anything really.
Sound – No, unless they are stories of magical things, the mystical and mythical. And music, I do love music. All sorts of music. It makes me drift off into my head even more as I create day dreams that form stories in my mind.
Smell – Meh. Unless it’s vanilla and geranium. I do love those smells.
Touch – Ah..no. Nope. Please don’t. I’m really not a very touchy-feely person at all. Unless, it’s a romantic relationship, then I do love to cuddle. But, no..not really a touch sensitive/fan.
So, sight it was. I think I know why. It’s because of all the senses, to me, to my mind, to my imagination, sight commands my attention – most times. The rest, I tend to get lost inside my head more, or find something else to focus on.
With sight, I see colours, I love colours – the cotton candy colour of the dawning sky, the bright awe inspiring fiery sunset, the dark velvet sky of night with it’s billions of sparkling diamond stars. I “see” when I read – it’s like a movie unfolding in my mind’s eye, I “see” when I study – which is why biology and physiology came easy to me. I love gazing at the beautiful colours of the Aura Soma bottles…feeling their energies vibrating out gently. I love looking at the beautiful, magical, gorgeous tarot cards so willing to tell you your secrets. I have “seen” patients and guided by intuition treated them. I used to love looking at the clouds and trying to see what they looked like. When I look at food, that entices me to eat, not so much its aroma.
And that folks, is why sight brings me joy and delight!
