Momma and dadz want to move to France when they get older. Can you blame them really, it's France. My parents think about life in terms of living gloriously, living a life full of "being in the moment." Imagining all that the world endeavors to fulfill for us, I do offer this thought: when you think "this" and or "that" can make you happy or will complete you, then you might want to rethink your thoughts for the day... like thinking about moving to France.
"Someone" can't make you whole, "it" can't make you whole, and far from the notorious "that" can make you whole. Heavens, we can't even begin to address "that," "if I only had that....." I find that being honest with yourself, being transparent with others, being thoughtful in our approaches, these things will help us on our journey of life. We should try very hard to be aware of all that we think, see, do, and determine what is "real", throughout our journey of life.
This gets back to being in the moment. You cannot be in the moment when you are concerned with the abstract talk going on in our minds, practice this when you are talking with someone: let go of your desire to influence the outcome, just listen. Letting go, being in the moment, being free of all the ego... it's living in the moment. Thank you for taking up the mission of being free, of being ourselves in the moment. I feel blessed for having this moment with you. It is special.
Momma thought this over while she was petting me... and she said, "Mattiedog, if we don't move to France, that will be fine, I have you and that's all I need. We'll just bring a little bit of France in to our everyday life!" Then she said, "say 'la woof' to me!" I feel special in the love momma and I have together!
Love always, Mattiedog
