That’s right two weeks have passed since my last entry. That was a surprise to me this morning. But then in the past few days I have totally blanked out a payment I need to make and used a chopstick to attempt thoroughly cleaning out around the lint filter in my dryer. The reason I mention that is because I dropped the chopstick and it slid down underneath the tub of my dryer. So I will make an appointment with my landlady this morning to explain to her what I have done and admit my own embarrassment. And this is how my “new“ year began.
Fortunately I don’t give much importance to events that are simply part of a calendar people devised in order to be able to communicate with one another. I reminded myself this morning that other countries and cultures have calendars totally different from ours so a day is simply a day. Time is a linear mental concept and I can allow myself not to be undone by it.
I decided this morning that my “new“ year begins today. And today is a good day because I am present and aware and willing to be in each moment as it unfolds. Yes, I hope today unfolds with more clarity and simplicity and lack of surprises! Life is what it is and getting frustrated and overly embarrassed really does not bring me peace and contentment.
Life is what it is and I am who I am. I forget things. I make silly mistakes. I am, after all, a spiritual being currently having a human experience. And human beings are prone to oversights and mistakes because there are no perfect human beings. And knowing that is the key to being perfectly human!
May your day unfold easily and may you know Peace today.
