GOD Box....



I received this box from work which I had my eye on ever since it made it's way into the office. I don't know why, but for some reason I just loved this box. I was never sure what I would do with it, but I was lucky to be able to take it home with me about a week ago. It sat on my chair...I loved it...but had no idea what to do with it.

Then came along the idea for the God Box. Oh this was just what I needed right now. This was exactly what I needed, and a perfect thing to do with my box. So I worked on it today, and even wrote my first letter to God.



I stitched the outside of the paper with a needle and thread, which was very soothing to do. And I asked the letter to travel with tenderness.

I am not a religious person, so using the word "God" merely means "universe" "divine being"...something along those lines. This idea is originally from SARK. It is mentioned in her book Transformation Soup.



After writing my letter I feel some what lighter and happier. I feel as almost a small weight has been lifted off of my shoulders and I can breathe because it is out of my hands now. Now it is time for me to just sit back, relax, and enjoy....and I can do that without a problem.
