It has been brought to my attention that “Gay Rights” is limiting the scope of this community. I meant to say LGBTQ+ Rights. Where you see “Gay Rights” in my Marina Silva post please substitute “LGBTQ+ Rights”

Six months in DC

I’ve been in DC six months. I’ve learned a lot: about myself, this city, my evolving relationship to New York City, journalism, friendship, limits, stamina, management, confidence, “faking it,” dating, sex, therapy, money.

Grateful for all of it. I’m happy to be here. I’m happy here.

A caveat to my new-agey stuff

I share these only as a notebook for a new set of knowledge and experiences that I’ve found to be helpful. I never, ever want to prescribe, or seem like one of those totally out-of-touch spiritual yogi “Eastern spirituality” white women.

I will also say that it was entirely impossible for me to consider this stuff until I established a traditional Western method of self-care: an SSRI and regular visits to a psychiatrist, a regular therapy regimen with a psychologist, etc.

So this stuff is fascinating for me and has hit a nerve, but obviously, everyone is different! Everyone is just #makingitwork in different ways.

"The goal of meditation is to uncover a form of well-being that is inherent to the nature of our minds. It must, therefore, be available in the context of ordinary sights, sounds, sensations, and even thoughts. Peak experiences are fine, but real freedom must be coincident with normal waking life."

Sam Harris 

Yes, yes, yes yes yes. 

Goal-oriented methods of self-improvement always fail. It’s nice to realize that our lives are only linear in ONE sense: we are born, we live, we die. Everything else is totally non-linear. “Progress” is something we made up.

This reminds me of another thing I read recently:

"There is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way."
