It’s my choice.

“Every Day is a New Life to a Wise Man.” – Dale Carnegie
“Happy is the man, and happy he alone,
He, who can call to-day his own:
He who, secure within, can say:
‘To-morrow, do thy worst, for I have liv’d to-day.'” – Horace, Roman Poet
Today, this morning, mere moments ago, I was pulled out of meditation to the sound of my phone. On for work, not for the use of my own. Now, thinking of yesterday, the past week and what’s to come. Knowing that life is in this moment, bringing myself back, but preparing for a run. Today I challenge myself to live in this day. To live a new life, not expecting what’s already become or yet to be done. To create – not react – step into the unknown.
Taking phone breaks – Friday leading into the weekend. Durations of disconnecting virally/virtually, and connecting more spiritually.
Remember when your home phone was your phone? Then the mobile phone became the secondary phone? It was for emergencies. Then it became the cellular phone then that took way too long to say so it became the cell. My cell. Now it’s just a phone – I have my phone. Where’s my phone? I have to charge my phone.
And now a home phone – sounds so weird. Why would I have that? Doesn’t even make sense – I have my phone.
I had cable hooked up at my new apartment last year – the installer said, your package comes with a phone line. For a phone. I asked, a home phone? He said, yes. He said, you don’t have to use it – we just hook it up so you have the option. I asked, do I have to get it hooked up? He said, it comes with the bundle – it actually costs more if you don’t have it. So I have it. The wall is set. There’s a number attached to that wall, it’s just floating around in my apartment. I don’t even know it or need it. But, I have it. I’m getting calls on that wall. I vibrationally sense it when I wake up during the middle of the night. Darn it!
Why did I let them install a home phone? Calls all night. I can’t answer the wall.
Call me on my cell. My phone!
Sounds suspicious when someone asks you to call them on their home phone. Doesn’t it?
Why, what do you want to talk about?
Can’t we just talk on our phones?
Ok, time to unplug for a bit – remember what’s important – space between to know who I am. May all of us have time for truth today. Let go, allow the distractions to fade into the background – blurred, indistinguishable, unimportant. Feel a real connection, all is well. Peace.
