Good morning, it’s 8:16 am as I start to write. We had a storm come through last night and by the looks of things, we got a bit of rain. Very grateful for that and grateful that the severe thunderstorm warning we got before bed ended up only being a warning! It’s so funny with thunder. I was almost asleep and then it was like, “We now interrupt your sleep for these 30 seconds of thunder.” (Kyle’s words there). Sleep all through the night remains elusive for both Kyle and I.
I had some interesting dreams last night, I remember snippets of them. I dreamt about being with some old men and one of them telling/saying to me, “Do you want me to tell you how old you are?” I said something like, “3,000” and the man said, “try 5,000.” Other dreams were of being in an old parlor or Victorian type of settings. I remember men sitting on the deck of a ship. My mind must be sorting through a bunch of stuff I’ve been looking at in my waking world like the Victorian Trading Company catalog, the Aspern Papers film set posts from Jonathan Rhys Meyers and other stuff.
I don’t believe the person I am is that old but what do we know of our souls? The energy our flesh encapsulates? The flesh is just a suite, a covering for the soul. The soul can be as old as time itself because there is no such thing as time in the unseen realms….for any other beings but humans is there such a thing as time! The dream realm in me obviously knows that.
Another conscious Key that may have unlocked last nights travels could have been this awesome post, Abandoning Adulthood, from my friend Ally. I have been thinking about this topic a lot lately!
She was looking for something about adulthood, and found it. Ironically, just yesterday morning Kyle and I were trying to figure out why we were so crabby and irritable and realized it was because we were having to be adults or what we call “Adulting.” We had made an appointment for Link to have his back left leg looked at and didn’t want to take him even though it was the right thing to do. We had barely dropped him off and were getting groceries when the vet called to come back for him! Yay! We dodged the almost $200 x-ray expense that is conveniently not covered under the Wellness plan we have both the dogs on….sigh. What the hell is insurance of any kind really good for?! It never covers what you need it to even though you are paying enough for it to cover everything! Anyhew…we didn’t get away without spending money on an anti-inflammatory and in a couple of weeks we’ll see what’s going on oh yeah, he’s “obese”….sounds like he’s a little old man not a dog right?!
On the way to the grocery store after we initially dropped him off, we were in the car bitching about EVERYTHING! I realized we were doing the thing we try very hard to avoid doing and that’s focusing on what’s wrong and not what we want to be going on instead. While President Trump it seems like like he’d rather be golfing instead of dealing with world issues and appears to be throwing away every opportunity put in front of him to make the world a better place, it’s not entirely his fault America is the mess it seems to be. A secret part of me thinks, is hoping, his being President and what he’s been doing is just some sort of epic reverse psychology experiment! I wouldn’t want to be President or any form of government official these days! It’s so easy to solve the worlds problems from the seat of our cars, kitchen tables, video game chat and social media forums but quite another to actually be the ones who have to sort it all out! Anyways, Kyle and I finally talked ourselves to where the source of the anger was and it came back to us. We decided we would rather be doing anything else but what we had to do….goofing off! This process we went through is something I learned to do in AA with the acronym HALT (Hungry, Angry, Lonely, Tired) and doing a self examination before blaming others through the day and just before bed for things when your angry or upset….making amends.
Anyhew…..it’s Monday again….time to get on with it. I hope that wherever and whenever this finds you, you have everything you need inside and out to be fulfilled. I hope you know that even if it seems like nobody cares about you, there are people all over the world, myself included, that say a prayer of love and thanksgiving for you every day.
