Hello Darlin. This is an invitation to join me in a yes day!
Yes! It was a great idea to eat the potato chips and the chocolate covered espresso beans. You love them. They satisfied and delighted your taste buds. You have more energy and focus now that you’re not so focused on wanting to eat them.
Drop all the stories and the things you’ve heard… Yum is good.
Your body is amazing and can perform mind boggling feats.
Yes! Good thinking laying in bed an extra 30 minutes this morning!
Yes! Buy the flowers, say the thing, sing the song. Move your body. Don’t move your body.
It’s all ok.
I’m reading the Tao Te Ching. The copy translated by Stephen Mitchell.
“The tao that can be told
is not the eternal Tao.
The name that can be named
is not the eternal Name.
The unnamable is the eternally real.
Naming is the origin
of all particular things.
Free from desire, you realize the mystery
Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations.
Yet mystery and manifestations
arise from the same source.
This source is called darkness.
Darkness within darkness.
The gateway to all understanding.”
Yeah. Eat the potato chips. Enjoy each, crispy, salty, satisfying bite.
See what happens when you allow yourself to fully enjoy the chip. (The chip could be anything you’re not allowing, or judging yourself for wanting or having). Maybe you’ll only need five chips to feel satisfied. Maybe, you’ll be free from the gripping desire and it’s subsequent manifestations. Potato chips are bad for me and make me fat. And find yourself energized, alive and focused.
The tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao. Once you think you know – you find out, you don’t. Know. Jack.
I love you boo. To the moon and back. You are breathtaking. Right here. Right now.
