I used to lose things all the time...especially my keys. I could often be found walking around mumbling "where are my keys, where are my keys". The subliminal aspect of the statement was not lost on me and I would often giggle at myself...and my key problem. Then 5 years ago I met my beautiful man, and at first if I lost my keys he would always be able to find them...then eventually the problem just went away and I stopped losing keys, and things in general.
Then last week I noticed that a saphire around my emerald ring (that I recently got) had fallen out. "It's ok" I thought "just a little test of attachment...doesn't matter..easy to let go" (even though the ring was one of my most precious possessions). Then the next week I noticed that my beautiful emerald had disappeared as well. "oh well" I thought, though I really loved the emerald and it's energy.."it's ok just a material thing..must have been done with that energy."
Then on Saturday it was my gorgeous man's bday and I raced around with our three year old son buying some nice bday treats. My last stop was the bakery where I bought some very naughty :P pastries. Now a few days later I have realized that somewhere betweeen the bakery and home my wallet has disappeared!! The only thing I can think is that I might have put it on the roof of the car while putting my son in his seat and driven off.
Now it really doesn't bother me that my wallet is gone...except for the annoying part of having to replace everything and the beaurocracy that entails....that's a bit of a drag.
My feeling is that this is connected to the fact that recently I have been thinking about the saying "it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than a rich man to enter the gates of heaven (not exact quote)". I had been thinking about this statement a lot before this 'losing things period' began. I could see how any attachments stop us from being our true essence...which is essentially the kingdom of heaven. The more we need 'things' to feel valuable or important, the less we are able to be our real selves.
SO anyway, while I know that we all have unique paths in this process, I'm wondering what others thoughts or experience with this 'losing things' phenomenon is.
LOVE ALLways, c
