It seems to happen when I have had some smooth sailing for a while and I feel like ‘glad that is over now’, like I have got this thing ‘down’. Then, there it is, rearing it’s ugly head, all geared up for battle…And…I keep it up, until I wear myself out and finally surrender…Not quite ‘there’ yet!
The story of the Siddhartha Gautama has been in the back of my mind these past many days now, when he is sitting under the Bodhi tree with all the arrows coming at him from all directions, and when they get close enough to hurt him, they turn into flowers and fall softly to the ground…
When we think we ‘got’ something, reality is there showing us — not so much!
Love & Light!
