The Train Didn’t Stop

Not yesterday, anyway.  No, that Blog Train just hurtled along reminding me once again that we are not in Kansas anymore.  Which is fine by me.  It amazes me to think that I used to have a life where things were moderately predictable and now every day is pretty much a crap shoot.  And, of course, WIN SOME LOSE SOME.

Anyway, expotitions today about which maybe there will be something to report.  Or not.  But I’m thinking mostly about how changing our own attitudes about things is the most important thing we can do in any situation, and how hard it is to do that.  Once you do accomplish a shift in behavior and things work better, you’re like, Dude! Why didn’t I do this sooner?  But you do things when you do them, this is indeed a wacky planet in some respects. So we cling to these idea of separateness, being different which equates to being isolated quite often, the us and them, and all the rest of it.  It is certainly true that people ARE different, and when you’re “too different” you can have a tough row to hoe for sure.  Still, you can adopt an approach of exploration and understanding of how truly temporary everything we experience is.  If you can ride with that for a while and live with the grief we experience upon that understanding, and the denial that leads people to conduct their lives as though they’ll live forever and there is some concrete something “out there” that will once and for all tell them what time it is in the way they want to hear that news, then, as Krishnamurti said, a whole new experience arises.  If you can put the fear down, it doesn’t necessarily change what “happens”, but it certainly changes “how” it happens.  And that space where “you” connect with “It” is where things change.  And that is something I think we can all agree needs to happen, and soon.

Later, alligator!
