Feeling better today. Lovely weather, sunshine and a bit of a loose plan all help with that. Went through and double checked all my security junk after the whole crazy people thing and am feeling pretty good about it all. I’m a bit shocked at the visceral reaction I had, just to unwanted communications. I’m listening to it though, over the years I’ve found it’s not worth it to ignore my intuitions.
In the parking lot at the grocery today I saw a fender bender. A good reminder to me (and all involved) to Pay Attention. Man A was either pulling into a spot or out of it, and Man B was backing straight out. A honked, several times and long ones, B continued to back. He couldn’t have been looking at all. A’s vehicle was a minivan and it was almost perpendicular to B’s vehicle. Nothing major- just enough for a dent and shake of the van I suspect. Still, sometimes we miss the most obvious things because we’re just not paying enough attention.
I am often guilty of this.
I tend to ‘brown out’ sometimes on things that don’t seem important, then later wonder why Bear/Monkey is insisting they told me something. They did, I wasn’t paying attention- to one of the two most important people in my life. Today I will have Open Eyes, and Attentive Mind.
