It is only a matter of knowing what's what and doing what needs to be done about it in each situation as it arises. That is harder than it should be because we keep getting in the way. Remember Adam and Eve? The Garden of Eden metaphor plays out times everybody on the planet and every situation that arises for each one every day. We get in the way with our preferences, desires, agendas, plans, interests, routines... Our life gets in our way, keeping us from being alive to the time and place of our living. Trying to live life as we want it to be prevents us from living the life that is ours to live in response to each situation as it arises. We have more important things to do-- and live to impose our list of more important things onto every situation that comes along. And there we are. Nothing is more important that what we declare to be important. You might think that our idea of what is important would have proven itself deficient by now, given the way things have turned out, across the country, around the world. But no! We are still hot in our pursuit after what we want NOW! No reconsideration/reevaluation ever enters the picture, only working harder and harder in the service of what isn't working. When it is only a matter of knowing what's what and doing what needs to be done about it in each situation as it arises.

Hi Pete, sandync28704 suggests that If you are a subscriber and get the photo associated with each blog entry but not the text, the work-a-round is to click on the date of the blog above the photograph and that should link you directly to the blog.
Thanks. That works! The text used to come through fine! Don’t know why it quit.
