whining not allowed I'm sitting at home, writing this post on a day in which revelry is happening at my place of employment, revelry that I helped organized but won't be able to participate in because I am here, at home, allowing my immune system to do its thing and cajole some rogue respiratory symptoms to go their merry way, already. Earlier this week, I was accosted by internet mauraders, spyware deviants who stole my credit card info, faked purchases in my name, and left virus footprints in their wake. I opted out of several pleasurable activities this week in an effort to help my body get well. However. On this day that I am completely resting, I am so grateful for this chance to slow down and just be. I am appreciating my bank, whose customer service reps took care of me in my time of need and began the process of righting the wrongs that were perpetrated on my account with them. There is no irreparable harm done, and in fact, I am enjoying this opportunity to practice not using my debit card until the new one arrives, and seeing what that is like. A friend of mine is going to help me eliminate the trail of annoying cookies and registry changes that are still plaguing my computer. Part of me knew I would be spending some down time at home, and that part of me picked out several dvds at the library a few days ago. I've been savoring the celluloid goodness of Something New and Copying Beethoven. Such good examples of spiritual film, releasing ourselves to be who we are, expressing what is in our hearts for the good of those around us, cultural limitations be damned. It's so quiet here right now, I am enveloped with powerful silence....
my wish for you We would like it if {when} someone says to you, “What did you learn from Abraham? What are you going to do differently?”… you'd say, “I have no idea what I?m going to do differently. When I said, ‘Should I go here or here?’, Abraham said, ‘Your choice.’ When I said, ‘Should I eat this or eat this?’, Abraham wouldn't say this was better than this or that was better than that.” So they would say, “Well, what did you come away from there knowing?”, {and} we'd like you to say, and mean, “I came away knowing that all is well. I came away knowing that I don't have to nitpick over this stuff. I came away knowing that I'm going to thrive no matter what. “I came away knowing that I have value and that life is supposed to fun. I came away knowing that that's what it's all about. I came away knowing that I'm making far too much about far too much. “I came away knowing that I'm already worthy and I don't have to prove it. And that I'm already of value and I don't have to prove it. And that I'm not any more right than somebody else is right and they're not any more wrong than somebody else is wrong. I came away knowing that the mix is all of value and I came away loving all of them for all of their opinions and all of them for all of their interests and all of their desires. I love all of them and what they're doing. I love all of them. I love the holders of the bombs and… I love all of them. I love knowing that they're doing the best that they know how to do, and I love knowing that...
