Sunday Story…I’m

Sunday Story…I’m

Hungry, tired, thirsty, cranky.

My father, when one of us boys would say “I’m hungry”, would often respond with, “Hi hungry, my name is John. It’s nice to meet you.” And of course one of us children would get a little flustered and try to explain that we wanted something to eat. He knew that, of course, but he was trying to get us to understand the difference of Being and feeling.

I am 63 years old. I am a human. I am 5’8” tall.

I feel hungry. I feel tired. I feel thirsty.

There is a significant difference between those two sentences. Unfortunately, when we conflate being and feeling we often become out feeling. If I arise in the morning and say to myself, “I’m tired” or “I’m cranky” our day will often reflect that state all day. Your being isn’t tired. You just feel that way. But the more times you say it that way the more likely you are to become that thing.

And who wants to be perpetually cranky, or tired, or hungry.

Own your feelings. Live your being.
