Today's weather has a few snow flurries falling down on us homeless cats, so putting on the right coat is essential. A cold wind is also blowing but the bus to the class was nearly empty and that is good.
Today I feel much more alert than I did yesterday. I meditated last night on the following phrase:
Everything is as it should be.
I found that by repeating this phrase in my head, I was able to accept the injustices (from my perspectives) and unfairness that I perceive in the world.
I have found that I cannot do anything about the weather except dress appropriately but I can change the world instantly simply by changing my attitude toward it.
By adopting an accepting attitude, I no longer have to feel that it is my job to change the world. Instead, I can focus on something that I can do everyday, all day - make myself better, happier, more alive . . .
I guess that is all for this morning - class is about to begin.
