If you add up all the little things
you did today–it is a lot.
Just because you didn’t build a bridge
or write a book
doesn’t mean you have to scratch the day
into whatever your being needed to do to
get through the day in relative peace &
joy, harmony & bliss.
Like a pedometer we need to measure
& count every step on our journey. Your
24 hrs. is the same length as mine.
Everything that happened within
that time frame was life’s gift to me
to do with what I wanted.
All the hours are like building blocks.
Stack one on top of the other until
you got something more than a
pile of blocks. It’s fun. Kids do it
endlessly & never tire of it.
Just a pile of blocks & they’re happy
for a long time.
The same with our day. Building
whatever with our hours & minutes,
we while away the enjoyment of
the day. Not noticing the
movement of “time”. Actually,
we’re in a “timeless” state
and have no awareness of how long
has passed except if it’s time for
recess, or we’re starting to get
hungry, & its it lunch yet?
