How do you react when your plan not go well?
How do you behave when your off day being disturbed by unforeseen incident?
Are you angry? Are you start to blame the external environment?
To us, we treasure so much on weekend as after a week of hard work. Finally, we can take a break and do nothing to recharge our energy. How wonderful to enjoy the peacefulness and silent on the weekend after we talked and listened so much during weekdays!
We plan to stay at home and do nothing this weekend, a gift to ourselves to enjoy the stillness. However, we can plan yet a lot of things turn out and we can’t follow our ideas. A few days back, Miss Mimi was reducing her diet even though she was still active, as such we just monitor her condition. This morning, we can sense that she might get fever as her little body was warm.
Immediately, we change plan as we need to settle the urgent matter to bring Miss Mimi to visit Vet and get medication. This is a great lesson to remind us on impermanence of life. It’s hard to predict what will happen next, however no need to worry or stress so much. Whatever happen, just accept and move on. Do not being disturb or bother by the external environment. You can still live your life in peace and calm even though chaos. Train your mind be the chief security guard, to filter and let go all unnecessary thoughts, not to create a story which bring stress and fearful to your life. Be the master of your life!
Think about it, if you yourself not open your door to allow all thoughts in, there is no way to create the full story board. You are the key holder!
Accept change, accept impermanence of life and treat all incident happen in life is the best gift and best nutrient to make you a Better people and moving forward in your spiritual practice.
