advice from…

I don’t believe in astrology or tarot or anything much at all, and yet I love reading fortunes and predictions. They seem like messages that I can meditate on, if they are the least bit relevant. The mind finds the relevance, or creates it, and I get some new insight just from having an open mind.

Having said that, I reiterate that no plan I have made for the last two weeks has gone unbroken. My response is to retreat to the tea leaves on the internet, which told me this:

Just because you can’t push the river doesn’t mean you can’t paddle your canoe.

Challenges come at the right moments to help us learn and if you approach them with a good heart,
all will go well.

I am approaching the challenge of being sick by attempting to get well.

I’m going back to bed.
