Morning Folks October 7 2008

I hope you are riding out the Wall Street roller coaster okay. I am really stressed by it, while Ed seems to be taking it in stride. Because of all of this I am watching more news on TV than I ever have so I have come to the conclusion that the TV Newscasters are the cause of my stress. My natural tendency is to bury my head in the sand about things over which I have no control, but Dianne Sawyer and her friends will not let me do that this time.

The news. I feel like every one of them is telling us to just hunker down and don't leave your house, don't buy anything. Life as we know it is over. Everyone will be out of work, there will be no gas for the cars in which we are all living and we will all be in bread lines, until there is no more bread.

But these same news programs that tell us all of this doom and gloom show ads from sponsors who, from the news reports, should be closing their doors any minute. I watch these ads on TV for furniture stores and restaurants, car dealerships and condos, vacations and jewelry, etc., and wonder 'What Are they Thinking?' Are they not watching the news?

So, today, I will be repeating my mantra over and over. All Shall Be Well, and All Shall Be Well, and All Manner of Things Shall Be Well. That mantra comes from Dame Julian of Norwich who was an English mystic who lived in the 14th century.

She spoke to God so we really should believe her. Interesting little factoid about this woman is that she is the one attributed to first comparing God to good Mothers and referred to God with both Male and Female pronouns. What a dame!

So, if things are getting to you, too, just think of that mantra and join with me today.

I will visualize lavender fields and lovely things and say it over and over.

All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

I will be repeating it this mornig while I am on th golf course.

Have a great day!
