Things are down to a trickle. Nothing is moving. The plumbing in our apartment is backed up and is being replaced. My son's trip was cancelled. Something is supposed to happen and than it doesn't. I call these mind fillers to keep us busy because we aren't quite there yet to embrace the emptiness.
The universe is 99.99% empty space. My life is starting to mimic that.
When the mind is used to constant action this 'nothingness' is hard to take. I am glad I don't get what I want. What shows up is much kinder and gentler. Life is effortless when the mind is not in the equation.
The universe doesn't give me anything that reinforces illusion. I thought I had it all figured out. I know nothing.
