Please excuse me if this is a bit of a quickie, and a day late too! My last post was all about impermanence and the gently shifting sands of change. I was and am handling all the changes in current very well as I sail with my Beloved in the Love Bubble, upon the sea of love. But even so I got a quick taste of just how attached one can be to material objects when my jewellery bag with all my basic things that I wear often, went missing for a night and a day. I was devastated, not by the material loss but for the loss of bits and pieces that I’ve had for years and wear with certain things. My jewellery is a part of my creative expression, for me a very important one along with the clothes that I wear.
So there is a material attachment there that goes along with my passion for colour and dressing up. I would have managed to surrender to the loss but it would have been hard, very glad it was a brief lesson this time. So in the end all one can do is keep surrendering to what is there in each moment. To be in the physical world is to have attachment of some description, after all we are interdependent with all things. So it may be more the attitude we have towards the various things we really like having around, the stuff that we all need to receive in order to be balanced and happy in an earthly life. After all perception is really everything in the end, so much choice in how we can perceive the world around us.
May I have compassion for myself and for anyone who suffers from the perceived loss of changing fortunes, there are always swings and roundabouts. The kinder I am to me the more likely I am to manage positive and uplifting outcomes anyway so why not indeed!
Love is all you need.
