SO what does a hermit do all the time?

here is where you can find me

https://www.vizify.com/mary-helen-ferris/links

tell me how I can find you

I am a hermit.

 I love people.

 I come out of hibernation in July.

 In the meantime this is what I do all the time……

AM BUSY WITH THE ARTS

CREATING AND CO-CREATING WITH OTHERS

spoken word art,
online writing,
blogging,
writing a book or a play…

I have produced four plays,
learning photography,
and fine art painting 

ENCOURAGING AND VOLUNTEERING

supporting and encouraging others 

I teach art as a volunteer.

My community involvement is global.

Supporting wordsmith artisans, new writers

and teaching english to wordcrafters

and new spoken word art writers.

SUMMARY OF THE PAST 70 YEARS

My life is all about service and art.

My family, my marriage, my cooking,

my laughter and my dreaming are  all art.
I assist people with life changes

through encouragement to re-write their life story.

Thank  you kindly dear hearts, for your likes on my blog.   I have just discovered after five years, I could be thanking you every time you like something.  I write 11 poems everyday so I often am busy editing and doing re-writes on the days I do come out of my den. I am grateful for your support.  

I appreciate you all very much and will stop writing one day.  Then,  I will thank you and accept all the awards.   I am not rude…I just want to stay in recovery after my stroke. When I was a career woman I tried to please everyone by thanking them, being their “fixer”, banker, and Earth Mother.   Now I am busy fixing me….and at 70 that is a full time job.  AND I AM AN ADDICT…I am addicted to books, quilts and shopping, laughing and Soul travel.

First rule in keeping a dream book…Harold Klemp ~ Spiritual Exercises of ECK

Blue Skies...

Dream Book

The first rule in keeping a dream book is to write simply. Writing complex ideas in everyday language is hard work. A dream may have so many details in it that you can become sidetracked from the point.

To overcome this, write the dream out in full. Then put it away. At the end of the month, review those inner experiences that stand out. Condense them. Make believe you are an editor on the staff of Reader’s Digest.

Gather the best of your experiences and send them to the Living ECK Master in a report. If you are an ECK initiate, this can be your initiate report. It is an easy way to resolve karma.

Patience and Commitment Harold Klemp The Spiritual Exercises of ECK

 

Patience and Commitment

One of the most common stumbling blocks for the new ECKist is impatience. For the more experienced ECKist, it is often commitment.

After doing the Spiritual Exercises of ECK for just two or three weeks, someone will write in and say, “I must be doing something wrong. I’m not having any experiences. My life seems to be worse than before.”

Say you’re going to study to be a doctor—and it’s a profession worthy of putting your whole attention into for an entire lifetime. How many would expect to become a doctor or be good enough to perform intricate surgery after only two weeks?

It takes longer for some. Others have done the groundwork in other lifetimes, and they pick up the spiritual exercises more quickly.

An excuse that twenty minutes a day is too much time to spend on the Spiritual Exercises of ECK shows little self-discipline. This is like the fellow who talks of becoming a writer but gives all sorts of reasons why he does not write. The truth is, he is simply not committed to writing.

Is the ECKist committed to the expansion of consciousness?

The cycle of creative action….Harold Klemp The Language of Soul

A Seed for Contemplation

The cycle of creative action begins with the concept we carry in our minds of what we wish to do. The next step is to outline on paper some plan of how to accomplish this. The final step is action in carrying out the plan.

Guest author Carl DeVilbiss shares link and review of his books

“Practical Wisdom for Loss and Renewal”

“Author Carl DeVilbiss shares deep practical wisdom in this wonderful book. It’s easy-to-access and understand, full of apt anecdotes and personal stories. I like how the book is set up. He addresses a range of topics which anyone experiencing loss of any kind will find helpful and relevant. It unfolds well when read from start to finish, yet each topic stands alone and the reader may easily navigate as s/he wishes. The theme of learning more productive and cooperative ways to traverse the journey of loss and renewal is beautifully expressed in the exploration of each topic. The writing is spare and clear, as one might expect from a Naval Engineer and business consultant. And it’s also hopeful and wise, as one might expect from well, Yoda. Highly recommended.”

The writer huddled in the cold,

afraid to sleep lest the thoughts and courage escape her.

The woman who was telling the story

to the writer would soon want to see the first draft. 

The sex energy is huge.

It attracted all the slugs in out of the rain.

The writer huddled in the cold,

knowing her passion in writing the book would keep her warm

that  the cold would keep her focused.
