NOT LESS BUT MOREI started dreaming early ..... see ME?
I have resisted change with all my will.
to life, "Pass by and leave me still".
But I have found as I have trudged
That all my wishing will not hold life back.
things must go their finite way;
I cannot bid the merest moment, "Stay."
So finding that I have no power to change
Change, I have changed myself. And
this is strange,
I have found out when I have let change come,
change that I was fleeing from
Has often held the good I had prayed for,
And I was not the less for change, but more.
Once I accepted life and was
To change, I found change was the seed of growth
- James Dillet Freeman, 1912 - 2003
Heee heee heee.....
Then the challenge was to occupy their minds to stop the frenzied boredom attack of the vengeful.
So what better than a few games of "I Spy With My Little Eye" .......... you know ........... "something beginning with ?????". I don't know 'bout you but that game caused more punch ups than the deliberate harrassment of 'Are We......".
Hmmm..... nothin' like remembering the good ole' days.
I remember having my gorgeous little twin boys in the back playing "I Spy" while zooming down the busiest highway on the planet with a bazillion CARS in front, behind, everywhere the eye could SEE. Anyway I did the obvious "I Spy.... something beginning with C", as you do.
Being brilliant thinkers like their father, they came up with every C you couldn't SEE .......... chocolates, chairs, chicken, caterpillars .... and onanon. Finally in hysterics I told them it was "CARS". That's when World War 3 started. Next came 'C' is for CHEAT and a punch up bigger than Tyson v. Holyfield........
Oh how pure and sweet and innocent they were!
But unknowingly these bigger kids keep playing that game called "I Spy With My Little Eye"
They do. Weee do.
We keep looking for stuff that we can see around us. And unknowingly we keep looking for answers for what we can SEE. Sometimes we come up with the right answers, sometimes not. Problem is that we SEE but we don't LOOK. To explain ....
Like the game of 'I Spy' we can see with our eyes wide open. And what we SEE is a whole lotta stuff that's been created, including WEEE. As I said in last BLOG thingie, our eyes let us SEE in front of and around us. THAT IS ALL! Limited vision. But that's all we NEED. It's all we WANT. It satisfies our SURVIVAL needs according to Abraham Maslow's Hierarchy of needs. But.........
WEEE start LOOKING rather than just SEEING. It is then that we begin to SEE with our eyes wide shut. WEEE start LOOKING for something MORE. WEEE start looking for answers to "I Spy With My Little Eye".
WEEE LOOK for meaning and purpose. WEEE LOOK for the reasons WHY. And it is then that WEEE truly SEE and the answers are to be found in your ME.
All the above information comes from the big kid who waited to crawl under his rock before he decided to LOOK. Of course the 'big kid' is Moi.
But, you know, I'm reeeeally glad that I can share my EXPERIENCES with you because I hope it is glaringly obvious that you don't have to wait for the rock to LOOK. And when you LOOK you will TRULY SEE.
And the 'big kid' in you will find that the answer to that game "I Spy With My Little Eye" is :
................ your ME
