VioletMyst still believes that Unusual traveling instructions are dancing lessons from Godis it really ever completed...??
...or “given up”?.....or something else? Since i never could write an adequent description of what this goal meant to me, i’m going to take it off my list…
i think it really is more of a life’s philosophy than a straight-forward goal: some weeks it’s dropping off a bag of goods to the “homeless shelters”, some weeks it’s cooking myself some good healthy food; some times it’s running an errand for my mom, some times it’s letting myself sleep lots to overcome my fatigue. All these things are meaningful, in their own small ways. The buddhist view is that there is no act that is unmeaningful, only acts that are done Unmindfully, and thru Attention, Attention, Attention, we are present to the meaningfulness of every moment. Brother Lawrence of the monastic tradition wrote a famous treatise on the “daily presence of God” in all things, if we opened our awareness to the Divine….
thus that is my intention, to consider all acts meaningful, and to be mindful in all actions…. 7 years ago
