If we were having coffee 11/6/20
If we were having coffee, I’d want to sit outside because we’re having shockingly warm weather for November. We need to enjoy every second of it.
We could talk about surviving these stressful political times and about maintaining, not just our sanity, but our loving kindness for self and especially for others.
When my dad died, a friend said….As you go through these very challenging days of funeral planning and the actual funeral itself, try to remain aware of the sacred. Pay attention to the gifts within this time because there will be many if you remain mindful. It was good advice. She was right.
I’m trying to remember that now. I’m trying to see the sacred in these days. There are lessons embedded in everything. And becoming the observer and looking for the Light within these dark days is helping me to feel more interested and intrigued rather than angry or anxious. And don’t get me wrong, the pendulum still swings. I do wander into anxious; who wouldn’t! But, thanks to my friend’s advice, I don’t reside in anxious. I just visit periodically.
If we were having coffee, I’d suggest that we help and support each other in remaining the observer so that we could find the embedded gifts in these troubled times. Maybe the gifts are about going within and learning to maintain our equilibrium regardless of what’s going on around us. Or perhaps the gifts are about remembering there is no “them”. There is only us, only we….and we need to come together and just be kind. Maybe the lesson is meant to teach us to be kind no matter what is happening externally.
If we were having coffee, I’d be grateful for an opportunity to hang with a friend….
I’m tired and I’m trying and I’m so glad you’re here!
