Who We Are What We Are

So we brought the second car up to Marin for storage and my wife drove us back in her car and I opened the letter from DMV which states that the doctor has to send medical information in to them by 12/30/2016 and only then will they evaluate to see if I lose my license or not. ¬†So, at least as of the moment, I can still drive and I don’t have to bother my neighbor to help me visit my hospice patients or learn how to use Uber and Lyft. ¬†Go figure. ¬†I may be able to dodge the bullet after all.

So it finally came. The DMV letter that will take away my driver’s license because of the seemingly epileptic¬†episodes I have had over the past several years. ¬†Apparently it will be in effect until a doctor figures out what caused them and how to control them. ¬†Oh well. ¬†Another opportunity to focus on what is really important.

This morning I found a major update due for the software that is carrying this blog. ¬†I clicked on it and the entire site went down. ¬†Fortunately, my tech connection was able to fix it and I am now back blogging. ¬†Had he not been able to fix it, my promise to blog very day for a year would have been lost… and so near the end of the year. ¬†And yet, there was no big concern that I had not made good on a promise. ¬†The more important issue was… What really is important? ¬†It was a great lesson.

Another day with the feeling that there is nothing that I ‘have’ to do. ¬†So I’m sitting around, reading Amit Goswami’s, Self-Aware Universe, and Neil Douglas-Klotz’, The Hidden Gospel, and wondering how it’s all going to play out. ¬†Of course, wondering about how it’s all going to play out is probably one of the things I’m not supposed to do. ¬†Hey… who said it’s easy?

I feel a change occurring in my life although I can’t quite put my finger on it. ¬†Yes, I am losing weight. Yes, I am letting my hair grow. ¬†Yes, I have stopped smoking pot. Yes, I may have epilepsy. ¬†Yes, I may lose my driver’s license, at least temporarily till that last issue is resolved, ¬†Yes, things are changing at the¬†hospice where I serve as chaplain. ¬†Yes, I am getting older and every ache and pain could be the start of something big. ¬†Yes, the year is coming to an end and I have to decide whether to continue this blog that I started last January 1st and said I’d do for a year. ¬†But most importantly, I’m not sure I have anything left to write until I get the things I’ve already done out in print.

Thankfully, I still believe in my three rules of life. ¬†1. Be Happy. ¬†2. Be Kind. ¬†3. That’s It. ¬†So I’ll let the universe figure out what I do next. ¬†That’s where the ultimate decisions always came from anyway.

Off to Cultural Integration Fellowship to hear talk on consciousness then back home to spend the day doing nothing,… except maybe editing the submission letter to Scientific American. ¬†Ever onward.

Amazing what one day can do. ¬†Yesterday, after writing the blog post, I discovered that Scientific American does take unsolicited manuscripts. ¬†So today, since they are the very inspiration for my quantum physics article, Shredding the Event Horizon, I have been composing the cover letter they want along with the manuscript and I have sent it off to my editor/sister for her thoughts. ¬†And of course, as I was doing it, I felt energized… exactly the opposite of my feelings yesterday. ¬†What a difference a purpose can make.

I woke up this morning feeling that absolutely nothing I am doing, or want to do, has any meaning or importance. That would bother me a whole lot, except for my three rules of life… ¬† 1. Be happy… 2. Be kind… 3. That’s it. ¬†None of which say that I’ve got to do something of importance to save the world. ¬† Obviously, not. ¬†If there is only one “I AM” of which I am just one little offshoot, who am I planning to save? ¬†“ME?” ¬†Needing to have some accomplishment left behind is just ego… and by now I hope I’m rid of mine.

Hard to believe, but December is here and the challenge I took on last January 1st, to do something outside of my comfort zone is almost over.  I have, indeed, blogged everyday for eleven months and have only one more month to go.  And will I have everything ready to publish by the end of the month as well?  Stay tuned, the answer will be here thirty days from now.

What a blah day. ¬†Woke up late. ¬†Never made it to the gym. ¬†Never even made it outside. ¬†Pretzels and lemonade for dinner. ¬†Why is it that some days just sap your energy so nothing gets done? Here’s where being a retired senior really comes in handy. ¬†There’s nothing I really have to do in the first place… except write this post, which as you can see is getting done. ¬†So it’s not a total waste.
