If anyone had told me that one fine now ‘my’ mind would fall like a feather into a flow of not-minding I’d have told them to sod off.
I loved minding everything: how I looked, what I believed, how others should look and behave, how my life and the world should be.
I loved all the opinions, the stories and self-righteousness.
I loved my choices, my decisions, my ‘personal power'(!)
Well, well, well.
Don’t ask me what happened. I can spin stories about what went before and after, but as to what actually heaved the minding-mind from its default mode, I’m clueless.
A clueless “feather on the breath of God.”
And I don’t mind one bit.
