Thank you Captain and CathV for the invitation to share the light in our lives! I felt so uplifted reading your posts! Having cancer and trying to figure out the direction it is pointing me in has been a fantastic (if not harrowing) experience. The three best things in my life right now: 1. Developing intuition. I used to look outside for all the answers. With the cancer, many (if not most) of the outside answers didn't jive with what was speaking from within. Normally I would have ignored the small voice, but now I'm taking it seriously and cultivating stillness so that I can hear what it's saying. It's rarely wrong. So I'm feeling more confident, empowered and authentic. This is living. 2. The people I am encountering. The outpouring of love, intelligence, and openness from the healers that I'm meeting, the family and friends who choose to be interested in me during this not-so-fun phase of life, and other people with cancer or chronic illness who themselves have become the profoundest of philosophers. I'm blessed to have people to share with, openly and frankly. I feel like I'm part of the world now. 3. Working with the questions and becoming more aware of myself. What is healing? What is health? What is it to be human? What is my purpose? How can I learn to love more deeply? What is the most important thing in this moment? Outpourings of love to you all as you journey with and after cancer!
