recent tidbits

::i am trying to learn how to forsake or lose expectations and assumptions. the purpose is to develop a more ready attitude for the unspecific, rather than the specific.   i learned that things like frustration, annoyance, disappointment and similar feelings are actually self-generated and self-fueled, and thereby totally avoidable with nothing different but a mind-set.  our minds are very powerful i'm also discovering, and often looking at something the right way unlocks it::  

::i saw this book called  "tao of pooh" and i didn't read it, but the back cover had pictures of winnie the pooh characters and statements like, "while piglet frets, and owl calculates, and eeyore plans,, etc, ... pooh just is"  .  anyway something about it seemed important, and learning to just be in the moment, present in the moment, not off in the past or vain imaginings of the future, but here awake in the now.::

::praise YAH, i've had a breakthrough and finally understand what it means to repent.  i'd always hear it, and think do i feel bad enough about that or this sin, is that what it means? and now i find it simply means to change!  to stop unrighteous behaviors/attitudes and do things differently than before.  now i think duh, but hey.. halleluyah, understanding this was so helpful.::
