Reading, no, chomping my way through books.
These are things I did to protect myself, my sanity.
I drowned in science fiction and fantasy
to escape the truth.
In so doing I drew strength from the characters, saw the heroes never give up.
That’s survival, isn’t it?
No one to escape from, I wish to read again.
I start a book
Either sci fi or nonfiction
But can’t get into it
I lose my concentration.
I think I associate
With a past life.
So all that energy
This is a process of letting go
Of learning to love again
Never giving up hope –
You’ll learn to rescue yourself.
Thoughts for meditation this morning.
“In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.”
“Work out your own salvation. Do not depend on others.”
“You cannot travel the path until you have become the path itself”
“You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.”
“To conquer oneself is a greater task than conquering others”
~ Siddhartha Gautama, Buddha
