Today’s Intentional Transformation: are you more in love with your beliefs or are you more in love with the truth.
Dear Diary and Friends,
I have come to an awareness, through meditation and reading and listening to spiritual leaders, that there are no answers to the big questions. Why are we here? What is our purpose? Who are we? What does it all mean? The answers are that there is no purpose or meaning. Everything just is. We just are. We are living in rented temporary bodies, thinking temporary thoughts and doing temporary things. Are we supposed to expand and grow and become better people? I don’t know. Grow or just be? Become better than what or who? Who defines what is better? Who sets the standards? Are my beliefs any more right or valid than anyone else’s beliefs? Are my thoughts superior to anyone else’s thoughts? Do I know what’s right more than anyone else? Life goes on whether we think thoughts or not.
The only thing that is real is the moment. Everything else is thoughts and thoughts are not real. (Oh! I think that will be my intention tomorrow). What’s real for me right now is I am lying in the guest bed where I am house sitting. I am perfectly warm. I feel tired. Angel is sleeping in her red cloth wagon next to the bed. I hear traffic from the highway in the distance. I hear me typing my blog. I am typing my blog. That is all I know. Anything that happened a minute ago is not real anymore. Anything that will happen in the next minute does not exist yet. None of those questions matter because there is only now.
I appreciate long bicycle rides.
I appreciate real phone conversations.
I appreciate talking to people.
I appreciate acceptance.
I appreciate challenges.
I appreciate my belly.
I appreciate Oliver the dog.
I appreciate running water.
I appreciate consulting clients.
I appreciate Airbnb.
I appreciate the downtown association.
Thank you for being a part of my life.
I appreciate you!
