The Sacred Vessel - Building Healthy Relationships -Proactive Aging

The sacred vessel is the container of everything and everything is in relationship to everything else. Although relationships are important, throughout life, as we age we all realize that not all relationships in life will be sacred. Some will bring us grief, misery and pain. However many will bring us friendship, love and joy  

To build this sacred vessel, we must first be clear about our intentions. Openness is required. We must open ourselves to everyone and to all opportunities, for growth is inherent in all of life. Truth is fundamental – first within ourselves and then extended to others. We must also be committed to nurturing and maintaining the sacred vessel of relationships. Without the walls that form the sacred vessel openness, trust, and commitment we cannot sustain its strength.

Once we have created the sacred vessel, we can use it as the foundation for developing relationships within and without that are healthy and harmonious. Then we can implement certain principles that will act as guides along the path of sacred love.

Build the vessel with openness, trust and commitment.

In The Blink of an Eye – Proactive Aging

This week a friend of mine who I haven’t seen in several years appeared in my Spin Class. He had moved away and not taken my class for nearly eight years. He moved back to town and reappeared like it was yesterday. Suddenly in what seemed like a blink of the eye we reunited after eight years. Where did the time go? Had we changed? Well, yes we both looked a bit older and we both were a bit wiser.

The blink of an eye is an idiom.  An idiom is a word or phrase that is not taken literally. So although in reality it had been eight years since I had seen my friend figuratively it still seemed like the blink of an eye.

Life is like an idiom.  If taken literally it means existence. The literal meaning of death is the end of existence. It’s plain and simple, or is it?  Is life simply existence that flashes by and ends with death? Or is it like an idiom; not to be taken literally? It means something so much more than it’s literal definition.

The blink of an eye lasts only a tenth of a second. That  is all that is needed to clear away dust particles and spread lubricating fluid across the eyeball. Every time you blink your eyelids send a cascade of oils and mucous across the surface of your eye to keep your orbs from drying out. Blinking also keeps the eyes safe from debris and damaging bright lights.

Why don’t we notice the momentary darkness that is caused by the blinking of our eyes? Scientist tells us that the human brain has an uncanny ability for ignoring momentary blackness. Blinking suppresses activity in several area of the brain responsible for detecting environment changes so we experience the world as continuous. No beginning and no end. So life really is an idiom. It is true the last eight years just flew by. Don’t squander time. Every moment counts because before you know it; it will all be over in blink of an eye.
