With this concept in mind, I poured myself and strong cup of tea and painstakingly unraveled a very tangled skein. The process was long, challenging, and absolutely worth the effort. But, I knew it would be. I enjoyed the work because I knew there was a reward at the end. Yesterday when I realized my floor needed hands and knees mopping since I had neglected it for so long, I was not so spiritually present in the face of the task. I was trying to think of an excuse to call in sick. Generally you can't call in sick to your own house, so I sucked it up and got to work. The next thing I knew, I was on a roll, cleaning everything I tend to ignore, and by the end of a couple of hours, I felt good. I had accomplished something I didn't want to do at all. When I was fully present, aware of each action, taking the time to pay attention to details, I can't say I enjoyed myself, but I felt better for focusing rather than dispersing my energies. Chop wood, carry water, life happens.
