Julia Cameron's book is splashing new colors into my little life. I must admit that her writing irritates me. Her sarcasm and patronizing tone sully her otherwise good thoughts. But I walk on the path of the artist's way, through the sixth week, forgiving her the trespasses.

I went outside today and gathered things of beauty. Yes, Julia Cameron, this is indeed a bountiful universe. I took on the Zen beginner's mind, and discovered that nature provides so many beautiful things just outside my door.

I wrote a scary affirmation to experience during the week.

And I added a gatha from Thich Nhat Hanh:

Placing this beautiful flower in my home,
I am aware of the serenity it offers.
May I carry that serenity into
my interactions today.

I too found Julia Cameron to be a bit annioying at times (and unrealistic! What person...let alone a stay at home Mom has all that time for her exercises...especially the week end away. I wrote a comment about that when I was in my blogging the artist way group and people came to her defense saying she was a stay at home mom while writing the book. But I wonder who was paying her bills?)

I love your comments on my blog this morning. (there is no time difference between us so you must have been up pretty late last night or got up early this morning like me!) I never thought before how everyone has to slow down to read my journal pages; but you are right they do. and that is a good thing! I appreciate the effort!
Have a Happy Sunday!

You do deserve a rewarding life! And I'm right here cheering you on in getting it!

And what a beautiful quote. It helps me understand my longing for beauty.

This IS kind of a scary affirmation, come to think of it! Here's one I have been pondering, not an affirmation but a quote from a book I was reading: "Working as a UN ambassador is the fulfillment of a dream so outrageous that I never dared dream it." It's like a zen koan - what dreams have I not given myself permission to dream up yet?

I agree with you about Julia Cameron, btw - don't ever read God Is No Laughing Matter; she gets particularly bad in that one!
