I don't know how long... but it's been some time,
how much do I really know about you?. Following the map with my fingertips isn't getting us anywhere. I love you..(maybe) too much, I need to let go. Goodbye!
February 18. “In any situation, instead of reacting suddenly, we could chew it, smell it, look at it, and open ourselves to seeing what’s there. The opposite of patience is aggression— the desire to jump and move, to push against our lives, to try to fill up space. The journey of patience involves relaxing, opening to what’s happening, experiencing a sense of wonder.' Pema Chodron
This popped up in my Facebook feed as a reminder of what I posted three years ago today, after going to yoga @eastofeden17 - and still the journey continues, deepens. I had to go and find a new travel adapter - of course my ‘universal’ travel adapter didn’t work. Navigating my way along busy streets (pavements are not for walking along here) and breathing in the busyness. Hoping I’m going in the right direction, not wanting to look at a map. Being directed from a store that sold electrical goods to a little cubby hole of a shop on an alley that sold adapters along with lightbulbs and other such small electrical items. I’m sure there is some kind of metaphor here for adapting to the situations you find yourself in. Patience being one of the keys. And a willingness to open to what is happening.
Egyre jobban zavar, hogy azt mondják én más vagyok, jó értelemben gondolják de néha már csak ugyanolyan akarok lenni, ugyanolyan mint mindenki, akinek nincsenek ilyen végeláthatatlan gondolatai mert nem fogja el soha annyira a magány, hogy legyen ideje ilyeneken gondolkodni. És nem zavarna, hogy akkor nem lennék "különleges" vagy nem tartanának koromhoz képest érettnek, inkább lennék ugyanolyan mint a többség és hülye, de legalább boldog.🖤🕊 #hungary#quotes
Maturity is a skill learnt from patience and tolerance. It's not easily developed by many people but that doesn't make it impossible. This is a skill everyone should try develop in order to avoid conflicts and childish people. There's nothing with being the bigger person. ~owlthoughts_
