Sometimes, I am not nearly good enough to myself.
I wear the same few pairs of jeans over and over and over, because they’re the only ones that fit right. And when I’m sick of wearing them, I just don’t want to go out at all.
Sad, sad life it is at those times.
Then, suddenly, I realize: I can buy new clothes! There are stores that are open right now, and all I have to do is go inside and give them some money, and they’ll hand me anything I want!
Well, not hand me. Let me find anything I can find that’s already there.
But, close enough.
So, today, that’s what I did: I found whatever I wanted, and today, it was three new pairs of jeans, and they make me look good.
I must remember to do this more often.
Money can’t buy happiness, but it definitely can buy some pleasure now and then.
Inspiration from the other side.
You’ve been on the spiritual path for a good while now. You’ve read the books. Maybe even met a guru or two. Sometimes, though, you need a different kind of inspiration. Inspiration from someone who knows how hard this inner peace stuff really is.
