I think the lesson of the day is simply to push through with stepping forward into what I need to do, while there is a bunch of the world that is happy and content with the status quo. It doesn’t mean the status quo is good or bad, it just means that for whatever reason I would like to advance my inner and outer self beyond what the norm is.
To do this, I need some help. Trying to get the various people to align is a bit of an interesting story. For example, the meditation man is perfect for me. The problem is that standard classes for him are prime time work hours for me. The gym isn’t a problem, in that it is open 24/7 what I am trying to do is gain a solid sleep schedule and a stronger discipline in the timelines that are blocked out for brainstorming, work, and then work to help others.
The boxing? Well, it was a few months I wrote and called the gym owner. As I mentioned I really don’t know what or why they have the school open for yet, cash flow seems to come to mind. However, I thought I could get in the introductory classes in the previous 10 days, but that, just like the meditation did not happen. Life decided to change in an instant with dads health.
It only took me 50 years to learn that people have very different ideas and are in very different spaces in life and that less and less want to change and experience some discomfort and pain with growth actively. Instead, we have taken a lot of our technologies funded for security and military uses and applied them to a world where people don’t have to really do all that much in the coming automation and robotics world. Everything will be “you deserve an instant gratification, no pain, do whatever you want life. I think the movie wall-e showed a great example of that reality.
This week has been one where a decent plan has been attempted to be done with a few things, and none of them are actually done. I have three days to figure out how to finish it all as I simply want closure on some things and be able to move on with some new ideas and projects that have filled up sketchbooks with life.
It just has me feeling discombobulated. I am not sure if that is an actual term of something that Disney invented for a movie?
I have to rush as storms are coming in….weeee!
While I had hoped to have the whole prayer, meditation, fitness, learning in place before I leave for a few weeks. That too will have to start in earnest when I get back. c’est lavie.
change usually takes more time than we guess, particularly when other people are involved that either want to or think the status quo is just fine.
I must confess life gets more interesting when you drop that stuff that the world tells you is important and move forward beyond religion into the spirituality of the cosmos. your pride shrnks dramatically. this is a good thing.
I just have to remember the meditation and not allow others “stuff” to affect me. meditate a bit and get blaanced again.
