What needs are essential in your quality world?

Where does beauty fit in?
Is it a need?

What happens when our needs are not met?

Is what you are doing, thinking, and feeling
getting your needs met?

That is such a deep, thoughtful post. At a qwuick run through I would say that although I have a house, enough money, don't need a job, I'm retired, there is a big hole where many emotional and spiritual needs are not being met. Probably too late to worry about them now,though!

Gilly....it's never too late to reach out for that nourishment, which i believe to some extent we all do through the interactions of blogs and chats and emails etc...apart from our own community connections which i know are difficult for you because of your mobility. Reading, creating, writing, photography....these are all wonderful pursuits which can provide the food to meet needs.... and I know based on what i've read on your beautiful blog, you are pursuing...
not to worry......it's happening

Most of my needs are being met but certainly not all but then do any of us really have it all? I know my time will come but for right now, the needs of others outweigh my own and I'm ok with that.

Great post Dana as always.
