Currie's Gratitude 17 December 2013

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.  [Alan Watts]

It is fun sometimes to take apart a feeling I am having,  return it to the pieces that built it in the first place. It BEcomes quite the curious thing to see how I changed from one point to another all BEcause I dissolved into a thought and danced with it.

Action and reaction, ebb and flow, trial and error, change - this is the rhythm of living. Out of our over-confidence, fear; out of our fear, clearer vision, fresh hope. And out of hope, progress. [Bruce Barton]

I don’t know that this is true for everyone… Somedays I‘ll just BE doo-dee-doo-ing along and suddenly it feels like a storm cloud has come over me. I’ve learned that instead of running about to find an umbrella, if I will just stand still and listen to a sound my heart makes when I am sort of scared or just overwhelmed, I can stand laughing, happy, in the rain.

I suppose this is what it means to BE the Change I want to SEE in the World.

If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. [Maya Angelou]

Yes… Yes indeed!!

I love you, Currie

Something that helped me years ago (and I can't remember where I read it) was that feelings were like the weather. There are days that are sunny and days where it rains or storms--hot days, cold days. The weather is just the weather. It's not good or evil...it's just a natural occurrence. Only humans try to control and put arbitrary value judgments on things like the weather...or emotions. I can't remember how it all went, but that's the gist of what I remember. :)
