IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU SAID IN YOUR LIFE WAS "THANK YOU", THAT WOULD SUFFICE. ~Meister Eckhart

011110

Fear is only an illusion. It is the illusion that creates the feeling of separateness--the false sense of isolation that exists only in. your imagination. ~Jeraldine Sounders

Today I am grateful…

  • for a night’s sleep where I didn’t have to take a bathroom break. Oh, and dreamed of being with Lady Gaga.
  • I recognize I am still stubborn. I am a lot more flexible than I have ever been, but I still hold my cards close to my chest some days.
  • I would seriously rather be happy than be right
  • for one of the most important tools I have, another alcoholic to talk to
  • that I can make a terrific cup of coffee at home

We are one. We are connected, interdependent parts of the whole. We are not separate from each other except in the mind, in our false understanding of reality. As we come to understand our connectedness, our need for one another to complete the whole of creation, our fears will die. ~Touchstones

Being happy rather than right changed my thinking about 4 years ago. I had heard it many times, but I finally "got it" at a speaker meeting one Saturday Night. I bet you were sitting next to me.

I want more proof that you may be the Lady.

011110 is 30 in 8-bit binary. I'm a geek and that is the first thing that popped in my head when I got here. I know....who cares.....

Yep, and happy, joyful, and serene beats right any day now. Good start to my day!

Namaste

I too would rather be happy. I used to want to be right at everything.

Liked the Lady Ga Ga bit.

"We are one. We are connected, interdependent parts of the whole. We are not separate from each other except in the mind, in our false understanding of reality. As we come to understand our connectedness, our need for one another to complete the whole of creation, our fears will die."

This is what the first law of Ecology says.

Good day!

Joy always,
Susan

Being right IS what makes me happy, thus I am happy most of the time.
