In case you were wondering about my garden, no, I’m not finished yet.
The colors are all arranged on my pallet but I haven’t finished putting them in the right places on my canvas ( the garden).
Here are a couple of pictures showing the work in progress.
In case you missed Carol’s comment last week, here are some issues she and I discussed about the negative mental state “Desire” in Chloe Wordsworth’s Transforming Primary Patterns.
Hi, Meryl, and all,
I was working in my new Primary Patterns book with a client who needed the Negative Thought Repatterning when I came upon the new (to me): E. “Own the feeling energy of the desire” in where the client is supposed to wear the color filter lenses (“ColorYourWorld Glasses”) and “Move your focus back and forth several times between (the object of your desire) and (the positive feeling of having the desire) (Da) “Encourage client to feel the desired object strongly. and mcs “I own my own powerful energy seperate from the external object I am presently giving my energy to” (will be off/umb off).
Without ever having done it before, I was quite confused as to where the client was supposed to be looking and which desire this modality was referring to, because prior to this in the repatterning, we have been identifying several desires, needs, and “what you want instead”
…so Meryl explained the client is moving their thoughts as they move their eyes. (I find kind of tricky and complex without identifying some location that might represent the different desires ahead of time, but maybe it is just me.)
It isn’t until this minute that I understand what (Da) was referring to – obviously, it is the desire that causes the client “conflict, pain, or distress” in I. Desire A. “Identify the desire” and the second location for the eyes is actually having this desire fulfilled with no detriment – only the positive feeling of the desire fulfilled. If anyone wants to offer any experience they’ve had in implementing this with the client smoothly, please let me know. Thanks. C
Last Saturday was a great spring day in New York. The weather was changeable but mostly warm with periods of brilliant sunshine. I was able to go to the event pictured above in celebration of The New York Public Library’s (http://exhibitions.nypl.org/100/visit) Hundredth birthday.
It was a treat to be listening to the intelligence, wisdom and humor that the panelists shared with the audience. I was particularly enchanted by the renowned PBS television interviewer Dick Cavett and Claudia Dreifus, from the New York Times. Another part of this program was a “self interview” performance by actor Paulo Costanzo. Paulo is known to many for his performance on the television program Royal Pains.
After this event there was a tour of the library stacks, which is almost never open to the general public. There are seven floors of stacks and their structure is the actual structure underneath the block and a half long main reading room, the Rose reading room. In the slide show below there are some views of the stacks as seen in the crack between the ceilings and the floors next to the book shelves in the center part of the structure. This is where the north and the south sides of the structure meet.
Here are pictures of: the 42nd Street Library; Bryant Park, which is in back of the library; some of the buildings on Fifth Avenue, between 40th and 44th Streets, notably the French Building www.thecityreview.com/french.html; the art deco Chrysler Building www.thecityreview.com/chryslerb.html ; a view of The Empire State Building www.esbnyc.com taken from inside the library.
There are also pictures of an attractive Greek restaurant, Kellari Taverna www.kellariny.com on 44th Street, between 5th and 6th Avenues that offers a very reasonable pre-theater dinner prix-fixe.
I hope you enjoy the beauty of New York City.
