Gratitude breaks the spell of Writers Block
Kamál (Perfection), 3 Jamál (Beauty) 175 B.E. - Monday, April 30, 2018
"This is the day the Lord has made;
Let us rejoice and be glad in it."
This and everyday is "the day the Lord has made", which should be motivation enough to get out of bed. This morning started off very good. I read the Long Healing Prayer, the Fire Table, a prayer for protection, and the Teaching prayer for the Western States the first thing. After getting up, and getting ready for my day, I chanted the Most Great Name, and read another prayer. That may seem like a lot of prayer; however, sometimes my mind tends to wander. When I read the prayer revealed by Baha'u'llah, the Bab, or 'Abdu'l-Baha it is easier to focus on writing or anything else I want or need to do.
Last night, about 9:10 P.M. Pacific Daylight Time (12:10 A.M. writing.com time), I posted this week's goals on "Weekly Goals" . When I posted them, I didn't consider that today is the end of NaPoWriMo, and posted some of the goals I focus on during April. That's alright because one of the goals refers to a list of items I have to work on or finish. I can do more than one item on that list when I finish the April goals to today. In May I'm participating in "Closed - MHWA Mental Health Challenge" , and considering responding to "30-Day Blogging Challenge" prompts. In addition, I have one blog entry with some dream symbols in I need to explain. I will make another entry in "Melting Snow" concerning the symbols in "A Transformative Experience" . I, also, have to finish a poem I started in "Hate, Fear, and Bad Behavior Plus Peace Rose" .

Cool cloudy morning
Wind blowing through the trees
Neighbors walking past
So far, it's been a good motivational Monday. I finished the "Dew Drop Inn" and NaPoWriMo challenges, as well as, enter a poem In "The Daily Poem - closed for October" . In addition, I completed four review for the Read & Review goal. I still need to post a poem on Poet 999 - A Butterfly Emerges from Her Cocoon, which I will do sometime today before finishing this entry. Other writing I have to do concerns the Week 39 entry for "Around the World in Fifty-Two Weeks" and the "Closed - MHWA Retreat" response.
our spell bound hearts ascend
above the battle field in unity.
