My first night off!!!!
Nice and relaxing…just how I like it. I spent it watching the second episode of Dancing with the Stars and the first vote-off. It was the guy from Saturday Night Live — he had some real physical limitations with his broken neck. I felt bad that he was so upset that he was voted off first 😦 I hope that he will be able to look back and see the experience as a positive one! I just love watching that show!!
Meditations from the Mat (Day 95)…
~~Buddha said that spiritual practice is like a boat we use to cross the river of suffering — when we get to the other side we must be willing to get out of the boat
~~to place anything above ourselves is to use it as a crutch, a block to spiritual growth — we have a tendency to say, “X says I must do Y, so I will do Y,” — but that doesn’t allow us the responsibility of figuring out for ourselves what is right — if we don’t bother to figure it out, we make a choice NOT to grow, to NOT recognize our own unique path
Things making me happy today: done with my stretch of days on, getting to watch DWTS, homemade pizza, M&M’s, knowing I will get extra sleep tonight
