al laid across the pillows last night so i slept in this convoluted position and woke up with a stiff neck. ouch.
jerry besides being a mean little bastard is also sort of like sheldon on the big bang theory....an OCD freak. last night al 's sleeping spot screwed up jerry's sleeping spot. i thought that dog was going to pop a gasket because OMG he had to sleep either one foot to the top or two feet below where he usually slept. bed space flexibility is NOT part of that dog's makeup.
anyway..it looks like jerry survived the upset and it looks like he did it without a sore neck.
apparently the way to enlightment is to let go of earthly attachments. i can see the value in ditching attachments to things..(and sleeping spaces jerry!)
i can see the real importance of losing attachments to self..life is really not all about us.
i am just wondering about the value in not having attachments to other living beings.
it might be easier, it might be less painful, it might actually involve less personal suffering. but isn't the best part of living.... connecting with and caring about someone else more than ourselves?
i don't get it....what is so great about flying solo in the light? i think i prefer some pretty special company in the shadows.
i will try to work on step one and two but i am skipping step three...that makes no sense to me.
