      I am fighting it. I feel like I have hit the pinnacle – the turning point of the war. The question is, will this be my Waterloo or Pearl Harbor. Gee, I hope I have chose the correct battles in which to refer to…..

        I think it will be that Historical moment of the Roman Empire, the Kimicus Victrix.

        You are tooooo funny;). I just had a vision….my face on Russell Crowe’s body in the movie The Gladiator!

      • 10. richardankerswrites  |  July 6, 2014 at 2:48 pm

        He had the same, his torso on your legs. LOL

      • 11. words4jp  |  July 6, 2014 at 2:53 pm

        Humph, funny you would mention that. I have always been told by guys that I have the legs they aspire to have.

      • 12. richardankerswrites  |  July 6, 2014 at 2:58 pm

        I’ll have a word with Russ, see what he says.

      • 13. words4jp  |  July 6, 2014 at 3:00 pm

        Oh please….. I personally do not mind having legs that guys envy, but, well, I am not a guy. Okay, so my hair is short, but still…….

        I’m still worrying about what Pee would think if you made her tea dressed as a Gladiator,

      • 15. words4jp  |  July 6, 2014 at 3:26 pm

        She would not have an issue. As long as I have a boney and the leash and keys to the car…. I can dress up as anything I want:)

        I like her thinking 🙂

    Very profound. For every one of us struggles to know who we truly are. To have compassion for that person, the self, and to acquire the faith that whatever is thrown at us we can be loving and kind towards our self. Love really does make the world go round.

    Beautiful post!

      Thank you so much. Your words are so kind. I really struggle with this and though I know what I must do, I can’t do it.

        I’m just reading Sharon Salzberg’s book Faith. Going to review it over on Learning from Dogs within the next 10 days or so but see if you can get hold of a copy.

    A really resonant poem! Discovering yourself is an ongoing process, I think. But this is why it’s important not to depend on someone else for a definition.

      I agree. But, yet, we always feel like we need someone outside of ourselves to give us some sort of something….finding the strength to say – I need no one is hard. I suppose if it wasn’t, there would be no such think as self- help books……:)

        Completely true. Human beings are such contradictions. =)

      • 25. words4jp  |  July 6, 2014 at 2:34 pm

        Yes, this is why I am coming back in my next life as a swan. Or just any animal thank am chosen to come back as….;)
