That One thing…

one thingYou know that one thing that everybody seems to know about but you? You know that one thing that you are supposed to do? That one thing that you are not supposed to do? That one thing that you are supposed to be calm about?

Maybe that one thing that you are trying not to think about but it keeps popping in and out and keeps reminding you of its existence? That one darn thing that doesn’t allow you to fall asleep peacefully?

What about it? Nothing…absolutely nothing.

I wanted to talk about a different thing.  Everybody wants to be in peace. Everybody wants to be happy. Everybody wants to hush those voices in their heads. But the truth is – very few are willing to do the work that is required.

You know how they say – ignorance is bliss? No, not the ignorance but thoughtful choice to not know what people are convinced everybody needs to know and worry about.

Everybody wants to be next Dalai Lama – smart, peaceful, deep and inspirational. Everybody wants to be as happy and as worry fee as monks of Tibet. What is the difference between a monk and you?

A monk has no clue that he has to worry about earning money, about a car payment, about politics or about what others think of him. He has chosen to unlearn everything he knew and learn just to be in a moment.

Are you ready to unlearn your truth? I do not think so. You will always find an excuse why you can’t and when you finally run out of excuses, it will be too late.

    Well said, Dace. It takes an inordinate amount of work to quiet those voices. Worth it, but not everyone thinks so I guess.

      You are right Denise, we all have a choice. We want things but we want them right here, right now. We want miracles that happen on their own.
