Sloooooww Going

One of those days (again) when time slipped away. The day felt remarkably unproductive. Getting the media center set up - assembly, running speaker cables, pulling cables from the attic and basement - was an all day process. The computer with all it's bell and whistles still needs software loaded. And there is all those things you can't remember that come up when you least suspect it...

I'm celebrating Cinco de Mayo with a martini tomorrow. Either a Tequila/Grand Marnier Martini or if the liquor store has Dulseda, I may try a Dulce de Leche Martini.

Living consciously...

While the reading today focused on telling the truth about your own anger, the real point was revealed in the practice - accept that it is your own resistance (rather than other people or the world) that is responsible for your problems.

Ah, the simple life.
anger: a strong feeling of displeasure and belligerence aroused by a wrong
resistance: opposition to an attempt to bring repressed thoughts or feelings into consciousness
problem: a misgiving, objection, or complaint

If only, I could consistently and successfully manage the gap between stimulus and response by living in the moment...
