A MONK IN THE WORLD
There are those who are close to me who would say to you that I live a small life. "Small" is my word. I find myself lately observing and contrasting my activity to those around me. Again I am reminded of a call I felt many, many years ago:
"you will be a monk in the world".
I continue to try and live that call out in my daily life, even when I am percieved as quite boring by some. I can only smile inside.
My life is not boring.
To me my view is vast.
Keeping my life small allows me to see with different eyes. And sometimes what I see is useless activity and useless striving.
I am happy in this small place.
I can see.
