Work, employ the body and mind. Live fully today free.

I don't understand. If I could live the day free, I wouldn't have to work. I could play, enjoy, relax. No, I don't understand at all.

Work...Freedom...Life...I never realized until this morning how many friends of Bill I work with. One of our little sheep strayed from the flock last night while on an out of town job. Sitting here listening to Bill's buddies tell the tale of the past 24 hours. A case of life going too well and not knowing how to deal with it. so, let's f it up! how can I deserve a good life? Stinkin thinkin, isn't that the phrase. How guilty we all are at times. Easier to believe the worst...Today I will enjoy my simple, happy little life. I will work with my good people, do a good job, and go home to a good space. Nothing fancy, but oh so good. And I will enjoy the happy, not question it, but enjoy. Grace be to all.

dang! The line was going well and
kabam! I hit something and it left...
well, to go one more time...
it has been since July 10th then that no one has posted here....
it has been busy in this "little corner of the world"...since June 9th I must say...when the live in gymnast missed on a tripple back flip from the top of the stair...
ah, but then the 8th of 9 lives has kept the heart from the flat line...no crow was around to take on the soul..I told her that and seemed to be without amusement...
Well, so, take this to heart, from Jack Kornfield's "Wise Heart" pg about 147 toward the top there...the quote goes as follows:
"The mind creates the abyss,
the heart crosses it."
...."employ the body and mind."...
...."the mind creates....." For the line might go no further for some....unless the heart is set to freedom....
best wishes and hope to see you all soon....I do hope someone sees this....

-ps....no time to start the new books yet.....but they are on the
stand ......
"The Wise Heart" subtitle
A Guide to the Universal Teachings of Buddhist Psychology...so that is why no one recongnized it...
See you soon.
