I am no innocent bystander. Everything I do, say, think and believe affects my life. I had a teaching creme brûlée last nite. I knew it was OK to order it, but I did not pay enough attention to the description on the menu. It read, “enough for 2 or 3 people.” So when the oval tart dish arrived – it was the size of a clown shoe – we were all very surprised. It was then I had a choice and I did the right thing. I ate just the right amount and had the rest wrapped up to take home. (I did offer to share it with my friends, but they so rightly would have none of it. I hang with very enlightened people!)
But I was again tested at home as I took the pudding from it’s shiney folded black paper box to place it in a more durable container. “Gee – that is not as much as I thought,” I thought. “Gee – that spoon tastes good. Ya know – I think the burnt sugar may dissolve before I get to it again tomorrow. Perhaps I should finish it tonite?”
Don don don donnnnnnn! Oblivious to the forbodding Beetoven-ish chords playing over me and the dish and the spoon, I carried my doom with me up the stairs to my bedroom. Yes – it was eaten. Yes – there was a belly ache. And yes – I had totally disregarded all my inner wisdom.
I am no innocent bystander here. I created all of it just like I am creating this message to myself today, as a reminder. I am not powerless. I am NEVER powerless. All the choices I make bend my life forward!
Knowing this Truth I move onward being more aware in the moment of every single MOMENT!
