I am really getting how my impatience with others inhibits harmony and stops conversation. I am great at listening fully at work, and then at home with the people I love the most, my desire to do my own thing butts up against my desire for connection.
So I got into a disagreement around how I am spending my time, and because of that, I did not finish my reading of Scroll 1 – instead out went the light to pacify the problem.
Then sleep, vivid dreams and boom! 1:40 am I awaken with a Knowing. Get up and read the Scroll. Up and into the bathroom and then I am reading out-loud by nightlight. And the new rendition of the words I have been reading daily popped for me – “I must not, I do not, break this habit of daily reading from these scrolls and, in truth, the moments spent each day on this new habit are but a small price to pay for the happiness and success that are now mine.”
The work I am doing consciously, my guardian at the gate, is informing and leading my “mysterious other mind” and I am let to do what I truly desire.
Today, I am listening more fully to my husband, my grandchildren and to what is next. Thank you Subby!
