I drove back to West Texas to visit my family for the holidays. I stayed at my sister's house Monday night. I had a dream that night that I was delivering food to some people but I was going in the completely opposite direction to deliver the food. I have been giving my parents and sister Eckhart Tolle's latest book for Christmas. I took the dream to mean that I am giving the wrong people spiritual food. That said, my Father actually uttered a line from The Power of Now in Ft. Davis, TX yesterday as we argued politics and religion...well, he was arguing religion, I was trying to plant spiritual seeds. So, perhaps, some seed of Truth has been planted. I am trying not to complain or be negative around my family. I haven't always succeeded in my pwn emotional reactions. While I was visiting my Father, my stepbrother and stepsister interrupted my time with my Father. They probably meant no harm, but it irritated me anyway. I feel ashamed that I couldn't remain Present during that irritation. West Texas has a slower pace of life and it's more earthy than Dallas. I still feel like a stranger in a strange land here. I love the night skies because I can see the Milky Way in Ft. Davis and all the stars I grew up with that are horribly obscured by light pollution in Dallas. Happy New Year Annie ! Happy New Year everyone!
