When I come to this space or anywhere, I speak for myself, of myself only. It’s all about me. Sometimes I even have trouble knowing my true self, so how can I speak for or of anyone else? In the same vein, I can only change myself. I can only change the things I do not like about myself. I can’t do a darn thing about what I don’t like about other people, things and events. But changing myself can cause a chain of other changes. My aha moment of the moment.
The world was too much with/for me today. There wasn’t a thing I could do about it. I couldn’t change the brilliance of the sun. I couldn’t make people be quiet. I couldn’t….I couldn’t. So I went within myself, quieted my thoughts, slowed down my breathing and let go of the world. I listened to the voice of Jon Kabat-Zinn as he guided me through the body scan.
