13 DECEMBER 2020 —BEING and BECOMING
Yesterday’s blog was entitled Doing versus Being = not a mention of the next stage BECOMING. As I spend yet another day in pain and with one arm in a sling having broken my shoulder 10 days ago , I am trying so hard not to BECOME AN ANGRY, SELF PITYING SELF INDULGENT PERSON as I eat everything within sight! I AM CERTAINLY becoming much heavier!!
I tend to believe that nothing happens by chance and by that reckoning that there aren’t any ‘accidents’ . FOR WHATEVER REASON, OUR SOULS OR WISE SIDES CHOOSE and attract our problems’ we can only hope that in tackling the problem we might BECOME wiser, regain our inner peace and gain the UNDERSTANDING and patience TO ASK OURSELVES the questions ‘Why have I attracted this’? ‘What do I HAVE TO LEARN?’
RESPONSIBILITY — THE ABILITY TO RESPOND.
WHEN EACH OF US REFLECTS ON PAST EVENTS IN OUR LIVES I WONDER HOW MANY OF US CAN RECALL INCIDENTS WHICH WE FELT WERE CATASTROPHIC AT THE TIME BUT IN RETROSPECT BROUGHT GOOD THINGS INTO OUR LIVES?
