Sorry, Bush. I don’t seem to be able to shut up, do I? In spite of my intention not to post today, these thoughts came up about the day ahead:
As I see it,
this is a day about mind.
It's a day about mind-full-ness
(for the mind is greater than the brain
that generates thoughts: the brain
is a tool of the mind.)
It's a day about mind-training,
about a long, slow learning to teach the mind
to do our bidding
rather than its own.
the mind is a great and powerful tool
but also a puppy dog;
it likes to invent
its own fun and games; it likes
to wander off into the woods
So this is about the training
of that puppy dog
to play our games.
This day is about training;
It's about learning the discipline
that practice brings.
It's about the practice of mind-full-ness
of having our own mind.
It's about focusing the power of mind
to do the work we want,
to create those things that we want
This day is all about mind,
the power we have
to have it work for us,
daily, in our lives,
toward the fulfillment of our dreams.
