Blue sky. Apple tree blossoms. Fresh green grass. Sunshine and gentle wind.
Sounds like heaven, doesn’t it?
“I wish I had worn my Sketchers. These shoes aren’t as good for walking.”
“This is a much longer walk than I planned.”
“My tank top would be cooler than this shirt.”
I noticed my egoic mind chattering, so out loud I said, “I am struggling against what is. Just be with what is real.” I was proud of myself for that awareness.
And almost immediately, my mind started turning the moment into a blog. So at that moment, I was egoically creating meaning from my experience and ironically, STILL not being present with what was.
And so I accepted that. Stopped criticizing myself for it. Settled into the moment. Laughed. The ego will do what it does. I am the one listening to it, experiencing it. And I am the one who let’s it go. I am the field within which all this occurs.
This dance my ego plays of trying to look right (spiritually accomplished? ) on the outside or striving for awakening on the inside is such a foolish use of energy.
Wrote the blog anyway! Lol!
