Pacis Amor deus est, “Love is a god of peace.”
One’s prime is elusive. You little girls, when you grow up, must be on the alert to recognize your prime at whatever time of your life it may occur.
I have a small chill which could mean that I have already ‘peaked’. It was someplace in my late 50s when I first felt – Ah ! This is it ! This is the age I was meant to be !
Today, I feel as if my Prime may have passed. That would be a pest. I need a few prime resources just now as a relationship termination is tossed into the Mix of 2011. I feel OLD and beaten and shrunken. I wonder what the opposite of Prime is. I guess I can work it out for myself.
the most flourishing stage or state.
the period or state of greatest perfection or vigour of human life
the choicest or best part of anything.
I did have hopes at one time of a PEACE PILGRIM kind of life but it doesn’t quite suit me.
Worry is a habit. It is something that can be worked on. I call it relinquishment of the worry habit… It’s a total waste of time and energy. If you are a praying person who prays with faith, you would immediately, and automatically, take what you’re worried about to God in prayer and leave it in God’s hands–the best possible hands. This is one technique which is excellent. In the beginning you may have to take it back to God quite a number of times before you develop the habit (which I have developed) of always doing everything you can in a situation, and then leaving the rest safely in God’s hands.

BACK TO THE PRIME :
I might not be the only one to have reached their Prime and continued on nonetheless.
Take a look at this :
Mind you, the message in this video isn’t too bad. STOP WIGGLING. Stop trying to get off the Hook. I had some dreams wrapped up in this house and this man and now I am back to looking at fibro flats with cockroaches and pension cards.
Nevertheless, STOP WIGGLING. There are other ways to get off this hook of Despair. I am trying to recall techniques I have used in other times to bring me up from the Bowels of Life and into another Prime.
I do not endorse them all but I was wiggling pretty hard at some of those times. This time, I am feeling inclined to vomit but am resisting the Wiggle.
I have on other occasions when fibro flats were beckoning to me investigated ECKANKAR.
And the ONLINE RETREAT IN EVERYDAY LIFE.
I note that the ARMIDALE site says THRIVE IN ARMIDALE. That’s a good message.
Many years ago, I took off to the Far North of Queensland and lived in a tent on the beach at PORT DOUGLAS.
And in a Wiggling Time, I often turn to Jonathon. He says things like :
We were speaking, yesterday, about the many joys of breathing. People forget all about this traditional source of pleasure and sustenance. They do it, but they don’t think about doing it. They don’t imagine that it’s anything special or magical. Yet it is because you are breathing that you are alive. And that’s a wonderful thing, isn’t it? It is. It really is. It is a wonderful thing. Yours is a wonderful life. You are a wonderful person. Don’t take yourself for granted. Or your talent, or your luck. Treasure it all. It is especially good today.
I combine that with ASTRODIENST and its FREE Thursday analysis.
The ideal environment
Valid during several weeks: This is a good time for mental work. You plan very effectively, with a clear objective perception of the facts, and you think very carefully, paying close attention to detail. Your mind easily resolves a difficult and complex issue into its component parts so that you can handle each part separately and come to a valid conclusion. This is a good time for talking with others. Your objectivity will impress other people, and they will not worry that you might try to force them into a position that they do not want to take. You will establish an environment in which any subject can be brought up and discussed. Therefore this is also a good time for business negotiations. You know what you want, and you will listen to what others want and arrive at a satisfactory compromise.

And then, I sit here. They have taken the Cattle home now and its dark and maybe another Prime will emerge from this darkness. For now, Heartache and Uncertainty and Shock blended with a touch of Shame. Ah that’s no way to say Goodbye.
