Weekly Challenge (Omwork) – There is an old story from the East that I would like to share with you.
It seems God had just created human beings. Realizing that He had made a terrible mistake, God called a council of the elders to get some help. When the elders were gathered, God reported, “I have just created humans and now I don’t know what I am going to do. They will always be talking to me and wanting things from me and I won’t ever get any rest.” Upon hearing God’s dilemma, the elders made several suggestions telling God he could hide on Mount Everest, or the moon, or deep in the earth. God responded hopelessly to all of these suggestions saying, “No, humans are resourceful; eventually they will find me there.” Finally, one elder walked up to God and whispered something in his ear. Then God shouted in delight, “That’s it! I’ll hide inside of each human; they will never find me there!” According to the yogis, we suffer because we forget who we really are…the Divine “hiding” inside.
Throughout the month, spend time in reflection, meditation and self-study to gain new insights into your life, to shed your foliage like a plant or shrub getting ready to emerge from under the frost refreshed and renewed when Spring arrives!
