I’d like to think I’ve learned more than one thing in my life!
First of all, I’m beginning to like MMA…can you believe that? You know, it’s this thing where guys get into a ring with eight fenced sides they call the cage and fight.
I don’t know what that’s about, I’ve never been able to watch Boxing, never mind this free for all. To be honest, I don’t think I’m watching the fighting…
Yes, I’ve been distracted the whole week…none of my thoughts going in any particular direction.
I’ve learned that the quality of our thoughts affects the quality of our lives, that when I was younger, I had a wide variety of optimistic thoughts to chose from, that I have to work a little harder now, for faith, belief, stuff like that.
I’m meditating this year with the Brahma Kumaris. I used to do this kind of thing easy. Last Sunday, I went to my fourth lesson and noticed a number of things.
First of all, they all wear white. They sit in a darkened room in front of an image of ‘Babu’ who is drawn sitting underneath a single point of light radiating long orange rays . After a while he floats.
They talk about heaven being this world of silence.
Their quest is for Peace. It runs everything.
Like I said, I used to do this stuff easy…now I’m not so sure. It seems that every religion/Life System wants to be THE ONE…but they all are looking for the same thing. They are all more similar than makes them comfortable.
They constantly propound that one thing that they believe makes them different. The Brahma Kumaris have a world tree that contains ALL religions. So that’s their one thing…they’re above the fray.
The one thing I AM getting though, is about the WAY you think. If you can manage to believe the best of life, to believe that you can overcome, then invariably life comes around.
Unfortunately I think this is all I can come up with; the Dentist looms and I’m into blog fatigue. I’ve been thinking about joining the Army.
It will all make sense tomorrow.
