Last week, I celebrated what I consider to be one of those milestone “Solar Returns” (birthdays.) I deemed it such, not only because of the number but, the learning that has come with totally embracing that which I personally chose and that which was given. Several years ago I made a promise and commitment to live the “Buddha Death Meditation,” which a dear friend described to me as living life backwards. This is accomplished by determining how you wish your life to end up and live to fulfill that wish. Having this flashback approach verses foreshadowing, allows one to avoid being a prisoner of wishes and thrust you into action as not to end up empty and full of regret. This approach has and continues to serve me well.
So with a “Solar Return” to celebrate and the embracing of a twenty year relationship life became sweeter and my desire to flourish multiplied. This was totally about “Having my cake and eating it too.” I send a very special thank you to our dear friends in Palm Beach at Angle, Café Boulud and La Sirena for their passion and love in celebrating this amazing start to 2014!!!!
