Can’t You See

Now is the time to see, with the eyes of age and wisdom, all the things I let pass me by as a younger man.

I believe that I have become more reflective since watching “The Buddha” on public TV.  I picked up some Buddhist philosophy from The Shrink, and have always found what he passes on to me is timely and profound.   It comes at a perfect time in my life.  I am experiencing change in my professional life, in my personal life, and in my spiritual life.  I understand that change is inevitable.  There must be the presence of change, otherwise our lives would be boring with no need for growth.  My challenge is to embrace change.  I’ve made so many changes within the last ten months that I have felt overwhelmed at times.  It’s been a whirlwind journey.  I’ve been pulled in mulitple directions, trying to figure out the direction I need to travel, and still trying to answer the question of who I am.

So, what’s with the profound start?     I have come to the conclusion that  I allowed some of the things I enjoyed in life to slip past me.  I made choices in my life and put those things temporarily away.  As I have matured and acquired wisdom, I realize that, once again I needed to incorporate those pleasures in my life.  New stuff is popping up all the time and I relish the arrival of the next long-lost pleasure. 

All-in-all, I’ve done the best I can.  I still need to work on the sloppy bachelor thing, though.  I do my best to keep everything manageable, but it’s the kitchen that is the greates challenge.  I still don’t like to wash dishes.  I need to work on that.  I need to work on everything.  It’s always something.  That’s why we are all works-in-progress.

    Don’t worry so much about the housekeeping as living your life. Like I tell my kids, just try to keep things kind of picked up, you never know who is going to drop by. In the spring, summer and fall, life is hectic with the boys and sports. I have a sink full myself. Just remember, a clean house is the sign of a wasted life. As for me, I live in a clean house, but there are dishes in the sink and backpacks strewn over kitchen chairs, and my books and reading glasses thrown about. But most find it comfortable and that is good enough for me.

      Oh, my dear, you have no idea! I am a cleaning woman’s nightmare. In fact, I have to tidy up BEFORE the cleaning woman. It’s just clutter, nothing toxic to worry about.Ihaven’t had a really clean apartment since last June. Ring a bell?
