Something's Different

I really paid attention today, and it seems that my 'center' is different.  Since my heart operation, things have changed.  Not a lot, but it's noticeable.  A couple of my close friends have made comment to me about it.  According to them, I'm more 'present' and more accurate in my speech.  What I know is that I seem to feel more 'no nonsense', and less willing to put up with some of the more frivolous socializations of life.  Drives me crazy in fact.  If it's on TV, I'll shut it off.  If it's happening in the room around me, I'll leave if I'm able.  And I certainly don't participate.  When I've tried that, I feel cranky and my words end up sounding rude.  Rude is not a word that would have every described me before. 

Things aren't totally settled yet.  I'm interested to see how things are when the 'shifting' has settled down a bit.

I have not had anywhere near the medical issues that you have been dealing with, but over the last year I have suddenly been dealing with some health issues. I have noticed that it does suddenly put a spiritual edge on, which is to say a shifting of priorities. The body-mind relationship is quite intriguing.

I've heard other people who are having a similar "moving toward the spiritual" experience in their lives. Hmmm. Interesting. Maybe we're part of a larger 'happening' in our world. Thanks for commenting on your experience, Josh. I am wishing you well.
