Lesson 216 – It’s not Easter

I am not a body. I am free. For I am still as God created me.

(196) It can be but myself I crucify.

All that I do I do unto myself. If I attack, I suffer. But if I forgive, salvation will be given me.

I am not a body. I am free. For I am still as God created me.

I should have been out watching Misha B tonight (X-Factor finalist) as part of the BEX Live (Black Exposure) event, but sadly it was cancelled, due, I believe in part to the huge competition from Jamaica in the Square, which is free. I could be there now, but couldn’t face another drive into the city centre, and the possibility of being rained on again. So, I’m in, and taking the time to reflect on the lesson of the day.

There were many mini moments when I found myself thinking of attack. For example, the organisers of the cancelled event, the inconsiderate person in the car park who blocked me in, the people who turned up late to the meeting and wanted everything repeated that they’d missed, the man who didn’t show up for a viewing. Instead, I looked for the positive in each of these situations, and tried to use each one to my advantage.

The cancelled event afforded me time to catch up on my blogs, and get a well earned early night; and besides, I’ll get a refund, so I’m a few pounds better off. The person in the car park helped me to develop my skills of getting out of tiny spaces. The constant repetition in the meeting meant I got everything firmly embedded in my own head, and the anticipation of a viewing made me get up earlier, clean the house, and had more time to do things.

No one was crucified and I had a really productive day. Even managed to catch a bit more of Jamaica in the Square.
