more of what i know....
here is what i know....
life is full of surprises...good and bad ones.
life should not be rushed. if you do, you will lose appreciation for taking your time...or for relishing in what is happening in the moment. you will forget who you are, and instead focus on what hasn't been experienced or accomplished. time is something that we let control us. remember when we were kids and were just beginning to learn something or try something?....a phrase told to us often was "take your time"......why don't we tell each other that now?
i had a dream last night that i was at my high school graduation again...but everything was different. for some reason the dalai lama was sitting in front of me. everyone kept trying to get his attention, ask him questions, but i sat there taking it in, hoping that i didn't come across as eager or needy....towards the end of the dream he was turned around talking to one of my friends.....i was watching, and he turned to me....we just gave each other a few second gaze and smiled. that was it. and it was enough. i got all i needed from him with that patient smile. no words were needed or even desired. just a brief gaze and smile. i don't know what it was about that dream, but that part keeps staying with me these past few hours. i keep thinking that maybe there is a lesson in that.
i have had such a sense of restlessness these past few weeks....but i think it's finally coming to a close. still stirred up, but maybe i have the tiger by the tail so to speak.
my goal of clearing out my art area has yet to be complete. distractions, lack of motivation, etc etc etc...i could keep making excuses. i am working more on this today. i hope.
have a swell day.
