Our lives are so busy aren't they? It almost seems like life is on autopilot stuck on fast and pedal down. I wrote the following to a friend and thought some of you might relate.
...You know how this atmosphere we live in tends to change our plans and desires. It really seems like when I desire something of life, the powerful forces of the puppet master fight me so fiercely to take me in the opposite direction.
Take my very strong desire to simplify my life and have free time. I had that 2-3 years ago when I moved 1500 miles away from everything I knew. I remember thinking back then...I finally beat the opposing force of life. I personally kicked the puppet master's ass and am free.
Oh, I was wrong! I had only won a small battle, the war continues and I have found my ass kicked numerous times if not constantly since the master has recovered.
Sometimes I wonder if I reversed my strategy and purposely tried to add things in my life if I would get the opposite. But alas, I am afraid the master wouldn't be fooled, that is why he is the master. I am sure after I couldn't possibly cope any longer that; I would spend my remaining years digging out of an even deeper pit.
Did you enjoy the changing fonts? Life is full of change. Enjoy every moment of peace my friends.~b
