The end of week 1 of Experiments in Truth

Here we are, at the end of the first 7 days of our 40 day “Experiment in Truth”.

In my experience with these things (and if you know me, you know that there ALWAYS seems to be some experiential experiment like this going on in my life), I have learned that as time progresses in the project, it has a tendency to morph and change into what I may not have expected.  So here I am, keeping my eyes, ears and creative juices alert for something that may (or may not) throw me off the path that I am currently on.  All that to say…next week, there is always a possibility that my tone will not be quite as excited and optimistic!

Well, thus far, I have been LOVING this experiment (and the other two that I am participating in also).  Since I am blogging daily (and you, dear friend, are holding me to it!), I have noticed that as I go about my day, more often than not, I am examining life with my eyes wide open, instead of in the sleepy haze that I sometimes find myself in.

What are my other two experiments, you ask?

1. Exercising 3 days a week to reconnect with my body and to see if that has an effect on my spiritually.  Thus far, its been pretty much exactly that, for the most part.  I have been feeling myself connect with God in a different way while physically exerting myself.  Its beautiful.  Last year I tried something similar to this, but with yoga, and I had a very different (but good) experience.  Its interesting for me to observe–we’ll see how it pans out.

The second experiment is a meditation exercise.  This one has been challenging in the aspect that it is difficult to force myself to do it each day.  But once I’m doing it, I am enjoying learning how to settle myself and just push towards total silence within.  Perhaps I should give Rick another visit at Green Gulch across the Golden Gate for some lessons in this.  :)  At the end of each time of meditation, I write a one word journal entry to sum up any feelings, thoughts, or ideas that the Creator may have been trying to get through to me (or perhaps it is more likely to be a word that sums up my frustration because I couldn’t seem to quite get what the Creator was trying to tell me!).

If you would like to read more about this whole “Experiments in Truth” thing, go to the ReImagine site and read all about it.

Love to you all.

What do I do when Derek is working late and Wilder is asleep? Turn to mush remembering when little W was tiny W, only 1 week old, weighed just 5.5 lbs and looked like Benjamin Button (except cute). Wow, time flies. 😍 #wildercobalt #3yearsago We spent this rainy morning looking at dinosaurs before coming home and all of us taking some epic naps. Perfect ☔️ Saturday! #wildercobalt 3 years ago today was my due date with Wilder - but instead I had a 5 week old!These last 3 years with this bundle of joy have been nothing short of amazing. 
Taking my boy #wildercobalt to the #colorfactory this weekend was only fitting. 🌈💙 O R A N G E . . . !
Definitely not my favorite color in life, but this collection of objects and way of showcasing them is really speaking to me.

We took the train to the pier > arcade > beach, where we picnicked and splashed in the ocean. ✨🌊🎡 #wildercobalt Today my dreams came true...

When his teachers explained the work project, he loved it so much he made a beeline straight for it to make me one.
