Among my selection of gifts from my loved ones at Christmas was a bottle of Parfum!
It was only yesterday that the irony of it’s name “Obsession for Men” occurred to me.
I embrace the irony, and I have no fear!
Now if that is not development in action, I don’t know what is!
But take the word “Obsession” – this is an interesting concept which requires some attention from me.
This word talks to me of being in a state of continuous circle on a narrow theme which perhaps is causing me, or others close to me, emotional pain.
This word speaks to me of suppression of my potential to be present in everything.
I am learning, through my journey to know self, that it is sometimes good for me to focus intensely on various aspects of self, and my impact with others in various situations, however, I have also learned to hold loosely onto the intensity.
A loose hold, means for me that I am not obsessed, I am simply being curious, and I am not being held prisoner by my thoughts.
I am exploring the landscape of my mind and whenever I feel suffocated by my interest in something (ranging from the world news to my adult children’s lifestyle choices), I push out the boundaries of my mind, to be more expansive,so as not to stifle my opportunity today, to be present.
I think this parfum has gone to my head!
My next blog will be: Self(ish)!
