19 March 2021 — BEING OR DOING?

Today I find the mind is craving excitement and is certainly not wanting Peace. I’ve been listening to Spiritual Bhajans but at the same time reading a story on Facebook about someone being locked in the basement of her house for twenty years by her father.

Hopefully I will now be able to let go of the need for excitement. Until now the morning had been very good as I was waiting in a longish queue to be served with just two items and all the people in front of me with lots of shopping let me go in front of them. Perhaps I was unable to stay with the feelings of how kind people were AND the feelings of being UNDESERVING which usually accompany any acts of kindness I receive.

Time to reclaim PEACE — TO BE: by focussing the mind on the feelings in the Solar Plexus area and let them rise and fall without getting caught up in thinking and the ‘DOING’ which accompanies our thinking.
