Ivan’s Health Journey: Thank You From My Heart

Published by at 8:08 am under Ivan's Story

It’s been a long, hard couple of months with all of the health challenges I’ve been going through. While I can’t yet say that my health and energies have returned to “normal,” they are at a level where I can resume limited work and many daily activities.

Over the past few weeks I have received so many touching notes, often mentioning your prayers, healing energies, and good wishes. And I have truly felt your supportive thoughts as I worked my way through the most difficult days.

Also, your many generous contributions are helping in so many ways, by bridging the gap in lost income (due to limited ability to work at my day job), helping me to pay for doctors’ visits, and other health care support. For that too, thank you from my heart.

    I'm so sorry to hear about all you've been going through. It's still amazing to me how intensely the body can demand our attention through pain or discomfort or plain lack of energy. There is a central aspect of our awareness that is simply and purely at rest, always, yet so much of the surface awareness depends on the body as its vehicle for experience and expression. The body — in health and in discomfort — is the ground of so much spiritual work. I hope that process gets easier and more blissful for you soon, Paula.

    Much love,

    Paula’s Story
    I have been sick already for 2 or 3 months while having to make the examinations in college and and a lot of things more so I apologise, I know you also have been sick, but I can not be seated more than 10 minutes followed on the computer, I’m waiting to know if I have to do another back side surgery or not, that’s why I have not said anything.
    It is painful, I had to exit from my home for 1 month to make absolute rest, I miss my son and my “Vodka”. I am at home of a friend now that the examinations ended, to do the rest, only after this the surgeon decides whether or not operating. I have always seen the emails but then no longer have the courage to respond because my back side are always in pain. I know this is not an excuse but I think that i should justify the absence of at least one comment. Now i’m going to try start writing again and share my thoughts with you, about the daily poem and anything that could be interesting to you and to all this beautiful community, like our health. I realy hope
    that your problem is almost good, with the heart we do not play, lol and we always should hear what he have to say to us, because is better than everything else to tell us wish the best way forward.And YES thank you for being my friend on facebook, and if you also want to make part of my friends from Portugal i would be very
    honored with your presence, ” http://paltree.hi5.com
    Thank you again and a nice weekend for you to. Paula.
