After reading "Morning Musings…” by Pegi (@worriedwife), I'm convinced that there are no accidents in this world. Certainly not in this community of caregivers that I now call friends. I'm trying not to quote @worriedwife and I'm having trouble because I agree with so much of what she said.

My mind races so much and I can't sleep at night a lot due to stress. I wake up and turn my computer on and have to say, Okay, that can wait until after breakfast! Then I invariably blog about something or post my three positives. Another friend today reminded me that we are all love in God's eyes (@rainbow).

I know in my chasing rainbows, I ran to the city to get medicine and ran back because I couldn't handle going to the museum as I was too tired. Said I'd rest but here I am . . . talking to my friends and replying to messages.

I wonder how many of us feel a sense of 'good obligation' to this community? I wonder how many of us rely on it almost to a detriment that we don't listen to what we preach (e.g. my need to rest )? I wonder how many of us are Chasing Tigers. I wonder how much we have in common that it becomes magic.

My Ffather just walked in and offered help in my SSI disability claim and he is being nice so Chasing Tigers becomes a Rainbow. My Mother's hands are beginning to shake like my Grandfather's, which makes me shake because my maternal Grandfather had Parkinson's. I wonder how many of us are chasing that rainbow that is right in front of us: ourselves. Bless Our Hearts.

Keep Growing. Keep Nurturing. Keep Chasing Rainbows and Tigers.

Always,

Google \"Don't push the river\" and see what you find...I think it comes from the Zen tradition...\r\n\r\n\"In the pursuit of learning, every day something is acquired.\r\nIn the pursuit of Tao, every day something is dropped.\r\n\r\nLess and less is done.\r\nUntil non-action is achieved.\r\nWhen nothing is done, nothing is left undone.\r\n\r\nThe world is ruled by letting things take their course.\r\nIt cannot be ruled by interfering.\"\r\n\r\nTao Te Ching\r\nLao Tsu\r\nTranslated by Gia-Fu Feng and Jane English\r\nVintage Books 1997\r\nChapter 48

OK now I have chills. My 'religion' is Taoism/Buddhism I'm trying to figure out how to put that quote in my 'profile' . . . I've kept that phrase in my head all day long. And yes I have a counselor, Tai Chi, had a support group but that was 'destructive'. I guess my answer is no to 'real support'~ the support that I need. I need help with grief counseling and I want a 'support group that for me is a coccoon (sp?). More in a message to you my dear. So very many hugs to you!!! and Adele . . il

Thank you so much il. I'm glad when I feel the Divine sings through my heart and refreshes both me and others. \"Don't push the river.\" comes from Taoism/Buddhism. I resonate quite a bit to East Asian philosophy. I need to remind myself not to push the river when I'm getting into feeling frantic or driven. I know you are going through a rough time right now. Do you have anyone who could help you out? Do you have a counselor or therapist? I'm here however I might be able to be of some help. (((Hugs))) Bob

Bob, I've been staring at this message crying my eyes out . . . you do that, my friend . . . your heart sings to me and says it will be OK, I love this: We don’t have “to push the river”. The river knows where its going.\r\nThank you Bob\r\nil
