|We have all seen the Matrix movies. I have occasionally had a "Matrix" weekend as I have had "Harry Potter", "Indiana Jones", Mummy" and various series weekends. Weekends when the weather sucked to one degree or another, the money sucked, life sucked or I was just in one of those "I don't give a shit" moods.
At a point in the movie, Neo comes up to a young boy and he is bending spoons with his mind. They are of course in the "Matrix". The boy tells him to bend the spoon is not possible, what the truth is, there is NO spoon. Voila! Hey, there is no f__ing spoon.
In the course of our lives we all run up against things that scare the crap out of us.
"How am I gonna pay that bill?"
"How am I gonna get a job?"
"I'm too_____(put your own adjective in here)"
"It's too hard."
"It'll never work."
HEY!!! There is no f__ing spoon! Things will work if you believe they'll work. Through my whole life this is the way it has been. If I need something and I just believe it will be ok, it always, without fail, is. If I get stuck in the oh my, oh crap, what the hell am I gonna do. I not only feel like shit, things usually go like shit too.
The human mind is capable of some miraculous stuff. Examples being Van Gogh, Fleming, and Einstein. They are all amazing. For an all time "there is no spoon" winner, I would vote for Stephen Hawking. This is a man confined to a wheelchair for the last 40+ years who could give us all a run for our money. He knows the wheelchair has nothing whatever to do with his mind and has proved it time and again.
The point of this little ditty is once again I have set out to kick myself square in the ass when I knew I was kicking myself square in the ass and let it affect how I felt, what I was doing, and how I was living. (Note to self, "Hey shithead, there is no f__ing spoon!")
It is hard, our day to day lives and that is true. That we are what we believe we are is also true. Sometimes it seems impossible to see that damn spoon in front of our eyes and say...."There is no spoon."
That is however what we need to do. Things will be ok. Maybe not exactly what I want, but then I don't always want what I should. Things, however, will be ok. Things will be as they should. The Universe in all it's glory is far wiser and older than I am, and after all, "there is no spoon."
