No really feeling odd. Don't know what odd means but just odd.
Worked today with my friend Bill. He is still coming in to help once a week even though the time I paid for is long over.
You know some people just have a hard time in this world. Hard time with the ebbs and flows of what life is. They dig in their heels and demand that the world be the way they want. Respond to their needs and wants. Be the image they see in their minds eye.
Nothing could be further from reality. You can choose to swim with the current and work with what you have or you can be unhappy. Life is like water in that respect. It is relentless. It never stops for anything. You are part of it and the next moment you are not. It keeps going.
So much is outside of our control.
Some people have even gone so far as to use devices to generate help from others to their views. One step more and you are in the realm of fake news or what used to be called propaganda. All in the name of creating the world in the image of someone.......when the world is and will be the world. Life is and will be life.
I'm not saying I'm a nihilist. No I feel you can have an affect on your world in some ways. You can choose how you respond to life and in that way affect your life. How you choose to feel about life.
Like water though......life is be what it is.
I think the Native Americans had the right idea. You find a way to live in harmony with life. Not fight it.
I think that is as close as I can come to describe the changes I seem to have gone through up to now. Finding a way to live in harmony. Balance. Not fight with life anymore.
Things I am thankful for:
up and walking today
