Some doors should just stay shut, and others should be explored. A door opened yesterday, that gave vent for deep rooted anger and hurt to escape. Fortunately I was able to close the door again. But it is obviously one I will have to explore again, at another time.
My Mother passed away 2 years ago, my husband one year ago. There is more processing to do. I give thanks for the blessing of friends.
PL Precept # 5 One’s self is lost by being emotional
PL Precept # 4 Being annoyed limits your expression.
Question, when your hurt is disrespected and tossed aside, my reaction is to withdraw, so that I can be respectful as much as I can of another persons stubbornness… Why is it so difficult for me to accept. I am not a masochist .. I distance myself my preference to be to live in peace and be happy. However, there are times, it isn’t that simple. So by golly, shut that darn door, and leave it closed, in fact, bring the nails and hammer and I will nail it shut.
How serious am I.
We can open a door and walk away, or we can look out and shut the door, staying inside, or …….. ?????

… so easily muttered, relax, relax…
Relax. I said, relax, sometimes the word itself is like an exLax
ever notice that
you are being told to relax,
when all the while you thought you were relaxed
maybe to some the word relax could be replaced by passed out
no somehow I doubt that
next time I should ask
please be more specific I will say
and just maybe, they will go away
then I will really be relaxed, eh!!

Saturday is starting out with a whimper
That in the sky, the heavens above, there is no east/west, north/south, it is the human need for words and direction, that these distinctions were made. Then over time, the mind believed it to be true… Because it was said, does not make it so.

PL Precepts # 15 All is a Mirror
PL Principle # 16 I will not have a mind to be arrogant nor conceited
These are the two lessons i am working on this morning.. I found myself thinking some very surprising thoughts this morning. Recollections of my unbidden thoughts from last night seem to be wanting attention. You know where a thought comes up about something that happened at another time that is disturbing … yet at the time, you hadn’t noticed just how much the experience was affecting your thought process.
Today’s calendar “lesson” says, that if we face a situation head on, a path will open up“…. hmm sits quietly and reflects on the niggly thoughts that are lingering. I didn’t like learning I had a lazy mind, but after it was brought to my attention, I did eventually see that I do have a lazy mind, LOL and it sneaks up on me when I least expect it.
This ahHA moment will also be a good lesson for me. Smiles, life lessons are ongoing, guess I’ll be a “work in progress” for some time to come.
Thank you for sharing with me -I so appreciate you all, may your day be blessed with blue skies and happiness.
