Be careful if you carry a language that sounds like, “there comes a time where enough is enough,” or “I’m sick and tired,” “if they didn’t change by now, they’re never going to change” etc. The phrases above are all judgment-based. We didn’t learn to think this way from Jesus. We learned, “Father, forgive them, they know not what they do” from Jesus.

This doesn’t mean to be passive, some might argue. This means to carry the right heart and attitude toward other’s value in the light of God otherwise your actions won’t be from Jesus. Christ definitely acted on His words by laying His life down and showing people who they were by loving them in this way. He is not passive or a doormat.

8.27.15

Actual break at work. Always remembering it’s just work—heaven is the true goal. Prayer throughout the day is the only thing that will help you remember our purpose here on earth when things get rough.

“And do not disgrace me on the Day they are [all] resurrected. The Day when there will not benefit [anyone] wealth…” [Qur’an, Al-Shu’ara’ 26:87–88]

The daily dread of being judged, of being measured and found lacking in some way, no matter how small, was a burden she carried, compact and profound. It was a too-heavy purse, worn and comfortable on her shoulder, which she did not know the weight of until she set it down.
—  Lynda Cohen Loigman, The Two-Family House: A Novel
When you go out into the woods and you look at trees, you see all these different trees. And some of them are bent, and some of them are straight, and some of them are evergreens, and some of them are whatever. And you look at the tree and you allow it. You appreciate it. You see why it is the way it is. You sort of understand that it didn’t get enough light, and so it turned that way. And you don’t get all emotional about it. You just allow it. You appreciate the tree.
The minute you get near humans, you lose all that. And you are constantly saying “You’re too this, or I’m too this.” That judging mind comes in. And so I practice turning people into trees. Which means appreciating them just the way they are.
—  Ram Dass

I did it. I cranked out the last 4 of the Major Arcana. 😳😆

However, it ran me out of spoons. Hardcore. 😞

I need to start pacing myself better. I need to understand that I CAN take my time, that it doesn’t have to be finished right this second, that it doesn’t have to be perfect, that I have to take care of myself first. It’s tough, you know? You get so focused in on something that you more or less ignore everything else. Sometimes, it’s a saving grace, an escape. Other times, it’s a roadblock.

Maybe I’ll treat myself to a week or two away from it, to recharge and focus on me.
