You have a sense of humor. Here I am in the most stressful month of my life and the spiritual practice you have led me to focus on is play. Here I am in a space when there are more things on my to do list, then there appears to be time for the things I want to do list. Final projects are coming in from my students, I am doing a record number of Pampered chef parties in a two week period for myself, editing a document for a client, planning my upcoming winter course, meeting with clients, facilitating groups, and making time for day to day activities like sleeping, eating, showering, time with Zoe and time with the cats. I would like to say I am busy, however, I am working at releasing that word from my vocabulary.
This is the perfect thing for me to practice on in this month, and all months, so I do not take things or myself to seriously. As crazy as it may sound this is part of what I love most about the groups we do with Inspiritual. Yes, you could say I am working, but it is normally something I enjoy, because it takes me away from the computer and gives me a chance to interact with people. Thinking about play this week has also helped me realize why I love my wife so much, she makes me laugh each and every day. She encourages me to take laugh breaks and to watch, listen to, and look at things which will make me laugh. I might ask her to read me her Pinterest make me laugh folder. Perhaps I should create my own. I am enjoying reading my new book Buddha Laughing. I love the cartoons. I am grateful for the friends in my life who I can laugh with and have a good time. Mostly, I just want to thank you for your own sense of humor and knowing what I need to practice most in my life even when I do not.
