There is a lot to be said for having those days when no one wants you, needs you or is bothered about you in any way, just complete peace and quite,alone and happy. On these rare days I usually end up using the time to catch up with myself, my family and my domestic chores, the bit I hate most. However it does not take much persuading to have me convinced, usually by talking myself out of cleaning the loo and the kitchen floor, that a day to do absolutely nothing but relax, sounds bloody marvelous. So today I decided to have one of these days and I must say by 5pm I was so chilled out, it felt like I was in heaven, assuming heaven to be a fictional place where things don,t get any better.
I had a slow leisurely healthy breakfast in my kitchen with the sun and warm air to make me feel almost tropical and lazy with fresh juice peppermint tea and scrambled eggs and mushrooms, perfect! I left the washing up in the sink and went out on to my small, well sheltered patio, to relax on a lounger and read a good book,something helpful,insightful and spiritual, Carl Jung modern day man in search of a soul.
Every time I pick up this book, the hours fly by and I end up knowing and understanding more about myself and why I must always remember Jung is considered as the first modern psychologist to state that the human psyche is "by nature religious" and to explore it in depth. Today with Jung I explored the heaven I am interested in creating. A place of peace, quiet, truth and learning. Now I will wash up and reenter the human world and put in to practice what I have learned today. This is what we call Life Coaching and even the Life Coach sometimes needs a mentor.
