It is interesting to me; when my physical life was overflowing with 'physical' bad surroundings, issues, etc. my mind had the negative impressions ... understandable reasons right. But now, when I have had my 'physical' bad surroundings eliminated for the moment, my mind still loves to push my spirit down. I really get annoyed at this acid rain falling in my mind!
Thankfully I can still reach that oasis of peace, I just have to work at it. Sometimes I just wish I didn't have to lift a finger to reach the oasis. I guess in this life, our toil will continue till we breathe our last physical breath. I like to say, “Keep smiling”. ~b
