A lazy mind can sit and ponder, wonder and consider her options for hours on end. there is nothing wrong in daydreaming, or taking time out to unwind, de-stress, or as some of us say, just chill. However, often it is after spending hours drifting aimlessly through imaginary and often lingering moments of “fantasy”, we emerge and finding that all the “stuff” we had waiting for attention in the “immediate” world, is still there, waiting …..
Sure, we can make a list, and we can plot out just how we will get to this project and that one, what materials we will need, even “see” it in our heads. But all of this is not getting “it” done.
Maybe a walk will sweep out the cobwebs and give inspiration. Wow, it is so nice out here, such a pleasure to be out in the fresh air. hmmm yes, hear those birds, and look… look at how white and fluffy the clouds are today.
Oh my goodness, look at the time, where did it go, it must be dinner time, and I’ve not even started to get things ready. where did the time go. Must have closed my eyes after the walk, it was only going to be for a few minutes.
Hello Mr. Crow, will you help me while I start preparing for supper. I had a good day, thank you for asking, how was yours? hmmmm oh I see, you were busy with your pals clearing up left over seeds at the neighbouring farms.
Well compared to your day, I guess I didn’t get much done.. but then again, I was “busy” all day.
Can any of you relate….. to my “busy” day, shared with my “lazy mind” ??
PL Principle # 14 I will not have a mind to be lazy. I will not have complaints while working nor be overly concerned and complain about others.
PL Principle #1 I will live paying careful attention, putting Makoto (sincerity) into all I say and do.
