I'd Rather Be....

Company's coming on Sunday, so i'm prissing around the flower beds when i'd really rather be out in the vegetable garden trying to get it under control. (As if that were possible.)

This double-mindedness afflicts our every waking moment and is summed up by those bumper stickers that say, "I'd rather be...."

Sometimes we don't get around to meditating because we'd rather stay in bed (in the morning) or watch TV (in the evening). We think we're reducing our stress by doing something pleasant, but the real stress reduction comes from calm and tranquil mindfulness, not from mindless vegging out.

When in the flower bed, just flower. When in the veggie garden, just veg.
