I don’t know about you, but I know that I can be a better person.
I read all of these wonderful blogs and now Rhonda has a Down to Earth Forum there are more things for me to read and beat myself up over because I am not doing them right at this moment.
And it all gets a little too much for me.
I am the sort of person that wants to do everything NOW and its not good enough that I am learning to do it, it all needs to be perfect NOW.
I have to give myself a little credit for what I do and that I am taking steps to tread more lightly on this planet and be a better person, but I have limitations – not least that there are only so many hours in the day and days in the week. And as much as I would like the power to rewrite the laws of the universe or the way the western world marks time I just cannot do it. Nor can I summon huge amounts of money for someone to teach me how to do all these things I want to be able to do, nor can I afford to go and buy all of the ingredients/tools I need.
So actually a big part of my journey is slowing down. Whether that is because the universe is telling me to, or because slowing down is a key part of the greener life and I have to move away from this hyper fast modern world we live in which teaches us that we can have it all NOW – we just need to hand over the money. I am enjoying searching out second hand tools, or balls of wool or fabric in sales or the charity shop so that if I mess it up it doesn’t matter and I can learn to let go of my need for everything to be perfect.
As well as trust in the power of synchronicity.
Unfortunately I just need to rewire my psyche. New circuitry gratefully received.
