A lot of what I write about here is concerning tools I use to live a “better” life. When I ran out of things to say recently, I had to ask myself, “What is ‘better'”? I want to say that it’s more engaged, more centered, more balanced, more compassionate, more reverent, thrifty, brave…I could go on an on. It occurs to me though, that all those things are about being or having “MORE”. Even something like having “More Simplicity”. There’s irony for you.
How about having less? What about having enough? How about just having–being–doing, without any consideration of “what”? This sounds rather Zen-like in the moment, and that is fine. I’m just not in the mood today for self-improvement, self-development, or even “self”. I’d like to take a breather, and just Be. 8) Salaam.
