Phenomena of the day. Views and Opinions. So I'm running along, the traffic is terrible, I note it, just note it, nothing else. I'm running along, and I'm seeing kids and adults and families all over the place and it is about 11:00 a.m. to around 12:00 p.m. that this is all happening.
I'm running along and I'm working with being mindful of my footsteps and I keep running around families. At one point I wonder if it is a holiday that I don't know about. I decide that is not the case as we would know about it at work and the calendar would have had a colored mark (to say we don't work).
With about 3 km to go I whip buy a family of three, husband, wife and about a 7 year old. the view and opinion comes to me: "why aren't these people working, why isn't he in school (the boy), why aren't the parents working, this is just terrible, all these people should be working, all these............"
Mindfulness comes to the fore, one simple question Mr. Mind "Why aren't you working? Your running, not working."
renounce views, renounce opinions, do not be hemmed in by clinging to views and opinions.
