I do this thing where whatever it is that I admire in someone else, I apply it to myself, and it feels pretty good. To be metaphysical about it, I’m able to view my ego from the Self’s perspective. So if I think there’s something desirable in someone else, I realize that it’s because I have those qualities in me.
There’s fulfillment and satisfaction in the cleaning and organizing that I do at the shop. Like making the bath tub usable once again. Or taking care of the cats.
It’s a day to day kind of life. Each day has meaning.
