Many people in the UP are waking up and are disappointed, for their minds were wrong, again. If you feel completely distraught due to the bright white ground and decorated trees, it is because you think it should be different.
You think it should be green.
You think there should be blue skies and flowers...
When instead you see white...and grey and brown mud puddles leaking through the snow...you will be crushed.
This is how the mind gets ahead of reality and plans it out and then is so disappointed when reality doesn't match what it thought.
How hard will it be to give up what your mind thought and enjoy THIS day as it is.
To accept what is as it is.
Will you put on mud boats and go and get your winter jacket and gloves; grateful that you have the correct clothing? Or will you lament about the Spring stuff you can't wear today?
Will you sulk at home and do nothing, cause the weather is poor?
Or, will you use this day inside to do inside stuff? Will you play with wild colors to offset the monochrome day? Will you add color or sparkle to your outfit to brighten up the day?
This is my was my Morning View....breath taking in its perfection for today. My mind isn't fighting it.
I know better.
Reality wins only 100% of the time...says, Byron Katie.
My mud boots are happy, it is their turn!
