It’s January. Last year, I did a 3/2/1 recap each month. For this first month, I’ll be talking a little more about my four focus attributes: space, legacy, emotion and practise.
IV. Connecting to Practise
‘Practise’ is a term I realised in 2008, meant “life”. Each experience is a practise run for the next. This hour is a practise for the next; which I’ll learn from and use in future events.
For this goal, that’s kind of how I’m covering it: life.
And having though of it like that, I feared this post would be long and rambly. In fact, it’s short and simple, though a little jumpy due to nature of change and realisations.
I want to reconnect with the spiritual energy I found in 2004, which gave me hope. To get back to learning about energy from books (physics) and to practising it (Reiki, meditation).
This includes getting outside at least once a fortnight to experience the energy of the land, of the trees.
Practise of Wellness
This is a recent finding.
I posted over at the Phoenix Mind about my steps back to mental wellness. This involved having systems for when life was tough, and if that’s not practise, I don’t know what is.
As of last week, I’m back to exercising. I have a six-minute routine I’m doing twice a day to get my abilities back to a decent level, covering core, arms, legs and balance.
I have a couple of comedians DVDs on my laptop for times I just need to laugh, and I found that novel-writing really is my best escape.
I’d like to find more items to sit in this first-aid-box of life’s negative turns; so that I can always bring myself back, once I’m ready.
What have I missed?
So that leaves me with a few goals from my original 13. The learning and getting outside come under other aspects. The two finalists come under all the aspects, so let’s have them now.
– Read 26 books this year (Legacy, Practise)
This comes under all four; and in my first post outlining the themes, I shared the books I’d be reading throughout the year. I have to say that, as of January 28th I’ve read 4.5 books, which is well on track for 26 in 12 months.
– Practise Paganism more often – prayer, meditation, ritual and OBOD study (Practise, Legacy, Space, Spirit)
Related to spiritual space, I’d like to practise paganism more; to study, attend or partake in ritual, prayer, meditation.
So that’s my 2012 planned, and January almost done with. I’ll be back in February to share my January accomplishments and February’s plans.
