Ahhh and the heavens opened...
So many times the depths of despair have threatened to consume us all, and so many times the heavens have opened to cradle us in thier comfort. What if you don't have to become a slave to your thoughts, your worries and insecurities? What if you can put a stop to the destructive path your mind takes? In our transition from a fast track life to simpler one we need to reevaluate the thought patterns that are destructive as well as our physical patterns and really make some conscious changes to how unconscious we will be to our thoughts. We get more and more involved in the worry of things and counting the things that didnt pan out or were failures, or worse what might fail. Fighting the habitual states of our mind is one of the noblest of paths and the most difficult. We all end up falling back on old habits but it seems to start in the mind, with a thought. Chores can add up and our desires and ideas can overwhelm us. Spring Seems the time when this happens to me the most. There are a million things I think I need to do and my head spins until I am forced to step back and reevaluate. It is about that time when I get an email that says you're not a slave to your brain, Thank god for the safety net of friends...
