Enlightenment is not sought enough. I’m guilty of not seeking it often enough. I think we assume too much, and trust what we know without thinking about what we don’t know.
Such was the case today when I went to the temple. My thoughts were centered around solving my own problems when I finally simply let go. I let go of the thought that I even had the knowledge or power to solve them.
Suddenly I began to see and understand something I had never understood before. Having nothing to do with my anxieties and problems, my new understanding caused a calmness.
I thought, “I need to pay more attention when I attend the temple!”
The day began with a Chamber of Commerce meeting. We had two new guests who provided great input. The more people we gain like that, the more powerful the chamber can be in bringing about good changes.
There was a discussion about how foolish it is for a business to pass up chamber membership at $65/year. Just the publicity via the Internet is worth the $65 membership.
Oh, well… you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink.
