Do not blame the circumstances and do not blame others. Remove your own weaknesses.” — Amma
I spent another day in the park, this time with Julia drinking iced coffee, and taking photographs. I’m finding myself paying close attention to the weather as it shifts my mood drastically. My outbursts come with rain and usually have nothing to do with who I’m crying to. They are also worsened with sugar. It’s interesting to track one’s emotional outbursts, what triggers them, and how you feel afterward.
This Venus Rx seems to be about the people we meet as well. Julia and I met an elderly women with a huge dog walking in the park. She had trouble restraining the dog and getting it away from the ledge by the water. She had a thick accent and took our hands against her cheeks nuzzling them. “My sister, my sister.” She said and then asked us where we were from and our astrological signs. When I told her I was a Taurus she hit my leg and said. “Always exercise.”
I have no interest in romantic relationships as of late, like something switched off and rebooted, allowing me to understand my relationship to myself. We spend so much of our lives trying to please others that we forget that we’re starring in our own movie.
“The idea of the special relationship is the idea that there is one person that is going to save us and make everything alright. But rather than looking for this one person that is going to save you—you have a love affair with the universe, and you realize that your love of any one person really isn’t about that person—your love is really about what’s inside of you. It’s all about work on you.” - —Marianne Williamson
I took these pictures of Julia by the water.
She took this one of me by Hellgate Bridge. I worked a little of my magic into it.
And here’s a few we took together.
“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
