Significant Stuff

January 5, 2010


Bodhichitta.

Awakening mind.  Mind of enlightenment.  Today’s meditation.

So far, so peaceful.  Which really helps me get out of the way of myself.  It’s like Pink’s song “I’m a Hazard to Myself”.  Love the line, “…. don’t let me get me….”

I’ll let you know how it goes.

Significantly,

  1. So, why do these philosophical perspectives matter when there’s so much work to be done? Isn’t it a wee self indulgent?

    Nope. Quite the opposite. I find I accomplish so much more and of such a truer nature when my head is on straight. When I’m at peace and happy — which doesn’t equate to addled or sedentary.

    Today, I focused on being open minded and connected. I a pretty accepting person to begin with, so what I experienced today was an extra level of compassion. It somehow energized me to do what needed to be done.

    Being connected is a different bag for me. I’m connected to many, but usually from a distance and most often with an electronic media in between us. I become so absorbed in tasks that sometimes personal contact feels intrusive and irritating. Just ask my husband (poor guy). Whew, I can give a look that withers. I decided today to join in — and it was lovely.

    Today’s Significant thing is like all the other days. The focus today doesn’t indicate completion. Things are not all wrapped up in a convenient episodic package. I hope that by choosing something every day, that I am enhancing my repertoire and putting more and more in motion. That’s good. I like that.

    Happy January 5, 2010. Here’s to today and to tomorrow. And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death….

    Significantly,
    Susan
