Even the slightest form of irritation is pain
December 5, 2023
Actually writing and self-publishing is a better use of my time and energy than going to a writing class. My so-called writing class is not really a writing class anyway, it is more like show and tell, there is no real writing instruction offered. The best thing about the class was meeting new and interesting people and for that I am gratefuil. So instead of going to writing class today I wrote this quick post. By adding to this post bit by bit throughout the day I am able to entertain myself while learning new concepts. I have already learned a lot about Google Sites today. In Sites the title tag is the same as the URL so once you publish a page, you cannot change the title tag or you will display an error 404 message. In Sites, posts are really just more pages. The key is to create the correct directories.
My new study and practice of The Power of Now is going well. In furtherance thereof, here is my lesson for the day from this master work by Eckhart Tolle. I have learned from practice that it is best to meditate upon this one thing all day today. As a result I was able to put this to good use today at the soup kitchen. The definition of emotion is disturbance. Tolle is correct when he writes that "even the slightest form of irritation is pain."
