Dear Guides & Guardian Spirits, I’m feeling a little down — very low energy. There are things I’d like to do — make more jizos, paint, work on earth & fire, do a little gardening and I just don’t have the energy. Please help me.
Dear Jenny we love you very much. First step is to accept tired Jenny just as she is, and bring compassion to her. Next is to pay some attention to the one who’s upset about “not doing anything” and bring compassion there too. Actually there are two of them: one who’s scared that her life will be wasted if she doesn’t DO something, and one who just wants to do something with her hands instead of reading not very interesting books. Dear Jenny, it really is OK to do nothing. We suggest a puzzle, and an “ashram” day with 20 minutes meditation as one of the activities.
I’m definitely feeling sick, and it may be that that’s making me feel tired and demoralized — much better word than “hopeless.” I planted the bee balm (good for me!)
