Presence fixes everything. Sometimes...I forget that. I let myself take a trip today to fear and worry. It is not a pretty place. Everything around me is changing. There are pieces of me that wish this change were not necessary. And then I remember that change is what we do here. People for whom change is not part of the program, are lying in a coffin, or resting in an urn. Then I remembered this too...chapter74...
If you realize that all things change,
there is nothing you will try to hold on to.
If you aren't afraid of dying,
there is nothing you can't achieve.
Trying to control the future
is like trying to take the master carpenter's place.
When you handle the master carpenter's tools,
chances are that you'll cut your hand.
I saw a double rainbow from my garden this morning. It filled me with such joy and wonder. I came home to a loving family, full of smiling faces. I will sleep in a safe and dry bed tonight...and awake to go to a job where I am appreciated and well paid. I get to experience these miracles...every single day...when I have eyes to see.
I get to experience all of these miracles...in exchange for the willingness to experience change.
That sounds fair to me. :-)
