HAPPY. How ridiculous it may sound. Yet, I think of the very thought often. If I see an apple tree far away, there is no use in standing here and wanting an apple.
Go and get it.
Wanting something is the very thing that drives me to the road of UNHAPPINESS, the source of all miseries, greed. While in the midst of my de-cluttering process, I catch myself wanting something and reflect on what I already have and the things I am letting go of. Must I define my life as happy or miserable? The difference between an enlightened person and one that is not is choice. Everything will align to your and my will. Would you choose to be happy, the enlightened one, instead of a “wannabe” wanting it?
This is the go-to project I cast on today–between errands, waiting for kids, in the car to grocery shopping, or just to have a break. Very intuitive knit…and a stitch pattern that serves well as a “trinity prayer.” It’s not a quickie, knitting in size 3 needles…but I am truly enjoying the snail-pace that I am striding.
How about you? Are you enjoying the wondrous fragrant of spring budding (smelling the roses…of life?)
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
