Spirit

















Today I am thinking of how we define ourselves and I am also wondering why we think we have to define ourselves at all. We tend to define ourselves by things like what we do for a living, or how old we are, what we drive or how much money we have. People also assume many things about us by our own definitions, sometimes they make up some labels for us. In reality we are not any of those things. What we are is spirit. That is what I believe. We are spirit, always alive, always loving and forever. Whatever else we are is ego and really of no real power. So, anyway that is what is on my mind. Have a happy Sunday.

Just wanted to stop in and say Hey--I've seen your postings on Citizen of the Month, and I'm an Annie too. Enjoy your writings and your site, and the photography is lush. I heard an interview with Anne Lamott yesterday on the radio. The interviewer gave a quote by Rumi to lead in to a question--"Be a lamp, a ladder, a lifeboat..." You might also like it. seeya, AnnieH
