Okay...gasp...shock...insanity. I signed onto match.com for three miserable days. Ugh. And I thought facebook was objectifying and crazy. I discontinued and learned a great deal. 1) I would rather be lonely, 2) you can get 60 emails in 12 hours, 3) If we all just offered present moment beingness to one another during the simple goings on of our days we would find ourselves feeling far more connected and far less alone. So here is what I am going to do...I am going to practice talking to people. Being kind to people. Not rushing away when I could stay and offer presence to a situation. I discovered that I have been retreating all my life. I wonder what life would be like if instead I began taking steps forward. It is worth considering.
