Good Day, God!
Two small surprises for me — so far — today. The first was emerging from my shower and finding my delightful husband, Kit, refolding all the towels in our linen cabinet. Kit has “instructed” me many times (without success) on the proper way to fold towels. So, I guess it shouldn’t have been a surprise when he felt he just had to redo the towels that my professional organizer had refolded just the day before.
Both of them have “reasons” for their style of folding. My P.O. pointed out that I could get more towels into the same space. Kit points out that the way his towels are folded you can pull the towel out and it is immediately ready to hang.
Towel Wars! Who knew! But then, just a few minutes later Kit told me — in his most helpful voice — that he had disposed of my oldest (and dearest) pillow. AURGH! To the rescue! Sigh. The basic bedrock importance of territory was revealed to me — once again — this morning!
I had encountered this business of Territory years ago while riding in the car with Kit as Captain of the Ship. Aaah, but, back then God, I didn’t realize I had my Territories, too. Now I am slightly more aware and I suppose that is progress.
Awareness. Hmm. Do I hear You saying that Awareness is where Change can begin? Not in judging, condemning or chastising — just in simple awareness? Maybe even compassionate awareness? Yes, God, please help me open my Heart to Compassionate Awareness.
