I checked out my e-mail today. I had around ten. A lot of spam. I got some business cards made at one place. I have done some on-line dating at another. I’ve been looking for work. And a couple of insurance places are trying to get me to buy some. Really, I got a lot of junk mail. It took me a couple of seconds to press the delete button.
Breath in while saying wake up. The tone and substance of this message is simple. What does wake up mean to you? Breath out and say I am. Same message, what does it mean to you? To me, I live in a Jewish-christian culture. My culture makes me more like it than the other way around. So, I tend to belive I am being reborn or remade when I say wake up. I hope I wake up fresh and alert. I believe it. Breath out believing that I am dead.
To live and to die is natural. In our culture we tend to believe more in living than death, but we are in a cycle of both. And we believe the end is death. Again culture has a huge impact on our individuality. We believe we will eventually die. But perhaps it may help to realize we die a little bit at a time. Every breath out is a little symbol of this death.
Perhaps this is a good meditation. Breath in and say wake up. Breath out and say I am.
Christy Clark is doing okay. She barely beat the NDP candidate, but a win is a win. And the leader needed a seat. Time to get down to busisness.
