Self portrait. Me in a nutshell. Not to everybodies liking and not always to my own liking. But that’s what being human is all about I suppose. I am doing my best (most of the time) and hoping that people realise that I feel a lot of warmth toward them. I am better with animals and plants than with humans and am much better able to deal with a wasp’s sting than with my neighbour’s cold shoulder.
More and more I am turning to God – I actually prefer the term Inner Wisdom or Higher Self but am quite comfortable to speak of God, as I believe that ulitmately we are all talking about the same source of love and peace and wisdom – to help me be a better person. I do have shortcomings which frustrate me and have taken up a regular communication with God, asking him to help me overcome my weaknesses.
A wonderful source of daily prayer (should you be interested) and which you can listen to on your PC or download and take with you on your mp3 player/ iPhone is www.pray-as-you-go.org
