"...do you really want to be happy?
just pay attention and be kind, unconditionally kind,
on this breath alone.
forget about the future. just this breath.
no matter what the circumstances, just be kind.
friend, lover, family member, someone who seems to hate you,
someone you've never met on the street, your own soft animal body.
just be kind in whatever way is appropriate.
everything else will work itself out,
and you will begin to sense your own Pure Heart everywhere.
just be kind.
only on this breath."
after i had taken my coffee photo.
and as i was drinking my first cup.
i started to take.
the online, government census survey.
after 15 minutes of filling out info, with no end in sight.
i hit save and logged out.
i know at some point.
we will not be able to breathe without asking the government for permission.
so i stopped the survey.
and regained my happy focus.
with Molokai Girl's post from yesterday.
i aspire to just be.
and this survey took me far away from that this morning.
this country is headed in directions.
that is no longer about.
We The People.
so this morning.
government does not get to ruin my coffee time.
i control what i can.
to be kind.
it is that simple.
welcome to coffee hour.
welcome to this Sunday morning.
