It All Counts “Pay Forward” #198

Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is – It All Counts. “There are two fatal errors that keep great projects from coming to life: Not finishing, Not starting” Buddha. Have we bought into the idea that only the “big stuff” is important? I did, and that caused me to discount the daily tasks that gives order to my life, and keeps me grounded. The simple “duty” of clearing away the physical clutter, encouraged me to address my mental and emotional waste-land. I start my day reading, writing, praying and meditating, at least a little bit. It takes me two minutes to make my bed and put my dirty clothes in the laundry hamper. I straighten up my office before I call it a day. I do a few little tasks every day, no matter what, that way I feel better when I go home and also when I go to the office the next time. We do well building the mental equivalent of what we want, and expunge what we don’t want. Focusing with clearness, and interest on one thing at a time helps us take full ownership of whatever, given us the right to surrender it to our Father; our True Source. He can take care of our needs, regardless of the size; often before I ask. “It is well to give when asked, but it is better to give unasked, through understanding; and to the open-handed, the search for one who shall receive is joy greater than giving” Kahlil Gibran. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
