Preparing for My Soulmate

For 20 years now I have happily trod the path of life solo -sans partner- albeit in the company of my sons for the first of these last two decades. A decade into my true solitude now I find there is too much beauty to be shared, and cultivating it begs more than one set of hands. Like the lesson learned in “Into the Wild” even the ecstatic experience can fall flat when not shared. On the flipside, I’m well aware of the ability for shared experience to suffer from “punctured balloon” syndrome, so to improve my chances that the arrival of my “other half”will be an inspirational encounter I have created a simple plan prompted by an article I read  in 2010 about a study which suggested that there are 16 core values that can make or break a relationship. I like the number 16, a good solid count : 4×4, like the number of willow saplings used to build a sweatlodge. According to this survey, conflict in 6 or more areas spells disaster for long term relationship success. With this blog I will devote one week to each of the 16 themes to clarify my own values. By the end of the 16 weeks (if not ready to tear all my hair out ) I should at least have the skeleton structure of a sweatlodge built to bless the meeting of a remarkable man for me ! Feel free to join in this construction project by mulling over and/or responding with your own views. Since New Year resolutions often focus on diet/excercise, my first two weeks will cover two of the 16 themes that correlate to these : 1) Eating, and 2) Physical Activity. So until next week : “eat ,drink, and be merry”, enjoy this “firstfoot”into 2010 and lets see how we all feel next week 🙂


About dreamingmoon

I, Aurora Dreaming Moon am a Dreamer, Sister, Lover, Mother, Grandmother and sometime Writer, Poet, Artist, Musician...who at the age of 11 made my first conscious choice to seek the path of Truth by throwing a yarrow stick reading for my youthfully petulant demand of : "Tell me the purpose of life now or I'm out of here !" The spirits in all their wisdom and humour responded in kind with the complete changing hexagram : Ch'ien to K'un which I interpreted to mean "...a complete understanding of the universe ". Thus appropriately chastised, though laughingly mollified and defeated in my attempt at an easy way out, I was lovingly set back on this never ending journey we call life. I am still trying to accomplish my assignment :) What you'll find in these blogs are just sharings of some of my most heartfelt experiences along the way. May they be of service to all reader pilgrims who cross this path.

    1/4/14 seems an auspicious date to revisit/repost these. guess I’ve got four days to do a new “side by side” offering ….totally apropos since I evidently am relegated to being my own best friend 😉 Wish ME luck !!! 🙂
