Daily Reminder # 281

Desperate for something different to photograph and
I thought this shadow was kind of interesting.
Going to use Neale Donald Walsh tonight. I absolutely hate this one. I mean I hate it passionately. It applies to me on multiple levels and it stinks. Stinks, I tell you. I don't mind good, wise advice that I want to follow, but this stuff that's repulsively true and that I have no desire to listen to, well..... So read it if you want to. It applies to almost every aspect of my life. But I haven't left my house in five years. I can barely walk. I almost never see another human being.. Part of me really wants to give up my vices: staying up late and getting up late, wasting my day playing computer games, watching TV, over-eating... But another part of me - the one that's winning - thinks that my vices are my only friends. Anyway. I post it because I know it's important. But I do so with a chip on my shoulder and a hint of  "bah humbug (not actually the words I'm thinking) to Neale and God.

On this day of your life, dear friend, 
I believe God wants you to know...
....that he who eats till he is sick must fast till he is well. 

That is a Hebrew proverb, and it has to do with a lot
more than food. Look to see what behaviors you are
indulging in over and over again that are clearly not
serving you. Then, go on a "bad habit diet."

I mean it. I'm not kidding, Pick one bad habit, one
bad behavior, a day for five days. You can do this.
Stop doing the stuff you're doing that obviously
does not serve you--or others.

This friendly "nudge" came from your Self, you know...

Love, Your Friend....


Some things I'm grateful for today: (items in red are pre-gratitude - an attempt to bend the Universe to my vice-ridden will and get what I want delivered before I kick the bucket. As a friend of mine used to say "when my ship comes in, I'll be waiting at the train station." I'd rather have abundance delivered to my door. Hear me Universe?)

It says to give away whatever doesn't serve you. Being on the computer does serve you. It is there that you read, shop, socialize and play. None of those things are wrong or bad. The computer is also where you serve others -- for instance you post your daily reminders and check on the health of your friends. As far as I can tell, over-eating is the only thing on your list I can't negate because I don't know what or how much you eat.
