Zigging and Zagging — 02.13.30

Guiding Thought

Knowing the essence of All as our Self, we respect and revere All Life. We love our Self; we love All Life. We bring this Love regularly, sincerely, and thankfully to all our activities and interactions. We now Know the Peace inherent in Oneness. We Know All as our Self. We Know our Self as Love.

We bring Love to all our activities and interactions. I wonder, have you been in a “big box” furniture store lately?  They’re acres and acres of stuff on display. We went to look at options for a new couch today. After describing what I thought I wanted, the nice sales rep walked us through this enormous maze in search of a particular sofa. They apparently had only ONE sofa out of this entire maze that fit my criteria. We turned left, we turned right, we zigged and we zagged.  He slowed his pace a bit after I explained I’d had recent surgery on my knee and couldn’t keep up. And we zigged and zagged some more. He shook his head and said he’d been away from work for a couple days and that they’d moved some things around. When he finally found what he was looking for, we had traversed the entire multi-acre store, and we ended up about 10 yards from where we started at the store’s entrance! It wasn’t the sofa we were looking for and I found myself wanting to be somewhat angry and frustrated, because of the unnecessary trek throughout the store. As we walked back to our car, I couldn’t help but laugh. At least I’d gotten some extra walking in today – gotta LOVE that. As we begin to know our Self as Love, we practice seeing the silver lining in the dark clouds, we begin the practice of finding ways to Love what might otherwise be frustrating experiences
