Maybe you messed something up today.
Maybe you didn't get everything done on your list.
Maybe a friend is angry with you.
Maybe your presents aren't all wrapped (or bought!).
Maybe you haven't packed for the big trip.
Maybe you really, really, really want things to be different.
Can you see that there is a still silent part of you, the witness of these events, that is unchanged by any of them? That cannot ever be anything other that peace and joy?
Just for a moment, can you rest in that peace and joy?
Because no matter what is happening, the real you (your ever present awareness) is still OK. And always will be.
I am out through January 3. Happy Holidays!
