Yesterday mom and I had a girls day out. We started at the car wash. This was the place for the seed of this blog. Surely many of you have had the experience of sitting in a car while it is being washed and you feel that you are moving, when in reality you are standing still...or are you? I mean you absolutely feel that you are moving. Basically it is the machine around you moving. So this got me to thinking. We all base our perception on what has happened or is happening around us. From our past, our families, our failures, successes and just general environmental happenings. We see what we have come to believe as reality. And since we all have different experiences we doubt each others realities. How about doubting our own reality. Our perception is based on trivial things. Like a bad grade we achieved in school or a teasing a mean spirited child laid upon us... or maybe not small events but dark abuse and neglect. Be aware your reality is tainted and it is certainly not fair to expect others to see things the way you do. Look inside for your perception, to the place of creative breath, to the place that is your center and to a place where peace and love reigns. Everything outside your soul and spirit is moving and changing and only truth and love is steadfast. You do not know what is real and what is just an illusion so be kind to yourself and to others. Try not to judge your neighbor until you have walked a mile in their moccasins. Life is a mystery, God is a mystery, love is a mystery. Enjoy the not knowing. Maybe your moving, maybe your not?
