So, this is me, on my second day of my conscious journey of the 29 gifts, even if giving and letting go of "important" things is a practice I have done sometimes before.
But never with such a commitment and in such a conscious way, and surely never written and exchanged with other people around the world in a non-native language.
It is no surprise for me that the book "29 gifts" felt in my hands at thursday evening(at a talk of Eckhart Tolle, who visited his home-country germany again, after 3 years of busy absence).
It had some attractive power to me since I have finally learned to have greater sensitivity to my inner voice. Just the right book for the right moment.
Where will this journey lead? I don't know.
Will I face my perfectionism to make only "good" presents and be able to let go of it? I don't know.
Will I find ways to make meaningful presents on days like today, spending most or entire time of the day alone?
I don't know, but I know that this is the beauty of it, and I will be part of it.
Thank you Cami for demonstrating to me a "proof" that such a movement and shift in consciousness can work and can have a significant effect on a greater number of people. Thank you, may you be guided on your challenging days.
Yesterday I met an old woman on the way to the baker, greated her and held beside her. I pointed at the nice and rare sunshine we had on one of the last days of october. But she told me only of the bad news she heard on TV. I tried to convince her that the TV is NOT representative of the world, and there are many many beautiful und lovely things outside the TV, if we have eyes for it. I wished her a nice day and continued my way to the baker.
Today I'm challenged by the circumstance that I won't meet people today, but I know that this is no real obstacle. I'm curious, maybe I already made a gift, but didn't realize it. We will see.
