Dear Friends,

I head out for a family vacation tomorrow to Maine!  I’ve never been there before and so I’m looking forward to it.  It’s always a little scary for me to radically change my routine, although I do love to travel and see new places and meet new people and experience their culture.  Mostly, I want to feel good about my food choices, and I have no idea what to expect.  Plus, I can’t take my Athena water machine with me, and so I’ll be left drinking the local water.  And maybe most important of all, I never know exactly how much time and space I’ll have to do my morning ritual of prayer, mediation, journaling and now this Consciousness Cleanse.

I have to share a smaller living space with my family. Although I love my family, sometimes I am challenged with going with the flow with my two, teenaged daughters.  They can be a little persnickety, if you know what I mean.  If you know me, then you know I love lighthouses, and Maine offers lighthouse tours.  I intend to do one of those and also some whitewater rafting, a wild animal tour, shopping, hiking, you name it. You ever feel like when you go on vacation you have these high expectations?  My husband
is that way, and he gets doubly excited to go because

1) We get to experience something new,
2) We have time freedom, and
3) He gets away from his job.

I am looking forward to going, but it’s not because I’m getting away from my current reality. I don’t feel trapped in my current life, but he does. So whenever I set up these high expectations of how something should go, I set myself up for disappointment. It’s best if I keep the slate clear of any demands on reality.  Reality will behave as it will without my ordering up the perfect vacation.  This is not to say I don’t expect to have fun, because fully appreciating the present moment and really living in it IS fun!
I can do that most anywhere, not just Maine.  So have a wonderful week and I’ll talk to you in a week!
