Subject: Musing 09: The gift in hangovers, sickness, and death
Hello ladies and gents! Super short and sweet Musing today.
During this week and some change, I’ve been dealing with a stubborn case of the rona and also been feeling a much deeper presence than normal which has allowed me to discover the hidden gift in sickness, hangovers, and even death.
What’s the hidden gift, you ask?
Awareness of your life and how you’ve been living it for sickness, hangovers and even death of loved ones brings you 100% to the present, allowing you to take stock of the life you lead.
Normally we operate on auto-pilot, checked out, cut off from the immediacy of reality and experience a dimmed down awareness as we’re lost in thoughts.
But whenever we’re sick, in physical pain, hungover, or dealing with the death of a loved one, the pain itself (physical or emotional) is usually a lot and is happening NOW which brings our attention/focus back to the NOW and with it comes increased awareness, clarity, and objectivity…
… which is truly the most EPIC gift (if we open it and use it right)!
