Tic-tac-tic-tac

Hours, minutes, seconds... and soon we will be back at the begining. How many of us will be begging and say: 'Could we start again, please'? How many words, thoughts, actions we'd like to erase from our memory, from our heart and soul? 

Today, I'm giving you a big paintbrush, a white paint and freedom to cover all your unvonted spots on your painting of the year 2013. You are free to be what you want to be!

Question #18:

What will you not erase or repaint for sure from the year 2013?

This is the last question of the game 'Giving thanks, giving gifts'. You still have time to answer all the questions (You can find the rules in one of  the previous posts here and all the questions in all December posts) and share your thoughts with us. The game will close on January 6th.

Modern meditation

Today is a special day. A perfect day for meditation, for inner peace and for thinking about harmony. Will you spend some time listening to your inner Self?

We don't have to be all alone in a monestery or a church to meditate. We can do it wherever we are - in the middle of the street, next to our friends or family, when hiking in the mountains... If you practice to 'switch off' wherever you are, then a place for a meditation can be found anywhere and whenever you feel like it.

Christmas is a good day for meditation. It's a good day to polish the soul and stop the world.

Today I am thankful for a time for meditation, a time for inner peace and stillness.  

Question #15:

What's your favourite way to stop 'your' world and listen to your inner peace?

A must

Christmas will be here soon and some of you will take some days off for your families, for your friends, for your relatives. Some of you will go on vacation and explore new places.

Transient

When I visit new places, there are things on my list that I always have to see or do when I'm there. A library, bothanical gardens, mediaeval streets are a must. Science museums as well. Peeking through school/kindergarten windows is also fun. Christmas markets in the winter and bike riding or hiking in the summer. I never get bored, although I like some places more and some a bit less.

However, I'm always thankful for the people who make these places alive, interesting and unique.

Question #9:

What is a must for you to see when you're on vacation? For what things are you thankful when on vacation or when travelling?

Giving thanks, giving gifts - again!

Yesterday, in this post, I told you: it is back! So let's play again! Let's dedicate this month to the time for saying thanks to (extra)-ordinary people, things, moments... and let's give gifts of love, dedication, harmony!

Do you want to see how we played 'Giving thanks, giving gifts' previous times? Then check the December posts from previous years on this blog!

Transient

This year, we are going to play again. We will have almost the same rules as the years before, but as always, this year some things are going to be different as well. Play with us and you will see! Here are the rules:

  • From now on, every December post will have a question or a task for you. You can comment, share your wise thoughts, re-act... in the comments below. You can write the answers to any December post anytime in December until the game is over (you will be informed when), because I know how busy the month is. (I hope my posts will remind you that we should slow down a bit, breath, look around us and inside us... at least for a minute or two - to feel the warmth in our hearts and inner peace).
  • Invite the others to play with us. We will then hear about different perspectives and experiences, what will help us to grow.
  • Onto your blog, fb, etc. paste the picture from below (button) and link it to this post or blog, so that the button might invite more people to play.
  • Be creative. When commenting, use other media of expression (music, poetry, video, images, drawings etc) and inspire us!

Maybe (as in the previous years), although this game is not about competing or gaining material rewards, we might find some gifts for the participants, so: try hard and make our December days happier! With you, we will broaden our views, will learn new things, will learn more about you, and maybe we will even get inspired by you!...

So, let the joyful time begin!

Question #1:

To whom would you say 'thank you' the most this year? How would you 'say' thank you to this person, so that you surprise him/her with something that he/she would have never expect it?

Could we start again please

December is here and the game 'Giving thanks, giving gifts' is back! Yoohoo!  Are you ready to play with us??

Transient

This blog was a sleeping beauty for a while, but it won't miss such an important event as the 'Giving thanks, giving gifts', so jump on your feet and get ready for it!

Every post in December will have a task in which you can participate. It is not a competition, it is not about material rewards... - but your heart will grow and your soul will be inspired - that's the biggest gift you can receive.

I will write the rules of the game in the next post; today, I just want to make sure you're ready for it.

Are you in??

December is a festive month, but also a month of self-reflections and nourishing of our souls... How many times we beg and say 'Could we start again, please', but it is too late...

I've been living to see you. dying to see you, but it shouldn't be like this.
This was unexpected, what do I do now?
Could we start again please?
I've been very hopeful, so far. Now for the first time, I think we're going wrong.
Hurry up and tell me, This is just a dream.
Oh could we start again please?

I think you've made your point now. You've even gone a bit too far to get the message home.
Before it gets too frightening, we ought to call a vote,
So could we start again please?

So, let's start again! Let's listen to inspiring stories, creative resolutions and heartful words. Let's say thanks in our unique way. Let's just be us - true, open and sincere.

And let's play!

Are you in??
