yes, that is actually me taking a hand stitch sewing class from the local make space. why? because there appears to be a strange issue with me having so many interests and wanting to learn some basic skills about everything. it might sound silly, but I have always wondered what the right way to put a button on or sew some prototype fabrics together might be. almost like everything else, if you have a knowledgeable teacher to show you…it is far less intimidating or difficult that our minds make us out to think.
The spiritual battle in my life in the past week has been really interesting, educational, and has me in a space where I can clearly see the two perspectives of an issue and there I am in the middle to make a decision and choice. The first was the old way, and dare I say more common way to solve a problem on the planet and have human repeat history with how we wonder why the world doesn’t get any better with an eye for an eye mentality. The second, of which taking that choice, feels very awkward in that it is not the normal path for the way we tend to live in the world, yet, it actually opens your heart and allows you to grow
The word is called “mercy” and with it, the lesson of the week was a higher power seeming to teach by example and ask, “do you remember when I did this for you as well?”
I could write about it, but I don’t think understanding it will make sense to most. The reality is we are so busy with the cares of day to day life, that unless you make the time, much like physical exercise and really push yourself – the experiences inside your heart and soul might not ever have or need to learn the lesson? Perhaps it is that there is a bigger reason for me to learn about this “mercy” for another. Whatever the reason, it certainly is an eye-opener and heart opener.
For this weeks heart lesson and schooling, I am very grateful. just as I am grateful to learn the right way to sew a button. now I can play with some ideas I have had in my mind for a few years. some people go to bars, others might watch tv, I simply will try to make some ideas reality and hopefully practice this mercy idea to be a better human with my time on this planet.
