Here we are again on Monday or *Moon Day* as it is called here, and first thing this morning I found myself being challenged with the task of being loving, kind, and tolerant. Once again I fell over a bike which had been left in the path I take when walking Campbell. It caught me totally off guard as I was half asleep. We’d only been up just long enough for Campbell to have his breakfast, when once again I found myself lying on the ground. The shock of it took me by such surprise that my first thought was to get up and sling the thing into the street. Instead, I took a few deep breaths, gathered myself and getting to my feet said simply Mother Father God forgive them, they know not how they hurt me. I focused on the task at hand, which was to park Campbell, and allow him his morning sniff fest. As I walked round the yard I took slow deep calming breaths, and focused on the bird’s singing and the sounds of the city coming to life.
My heart was hurting most of all, and as I rounded the corner into the front yard, the tears began to fall. I couldn’t understand why this was continuing to happen. There’s a double garage that the bike could go in, and I just don’t understand why any mother or father would want such a sweet loving child as this one is, to behave in such a way as this.
I am determined to keep the focus of this day, and to know there are reasons for everything we go through. I still love my family as much as ever, and only want things to be set right. I know not how to do this, but I do know God and Goddess are bigger than this problem, and it will be resolved. It is just another trial I must face.
After I’d gathered myself and determined to make it a good day, I began to get ready. I took a long hot bath, and did my morning meditations, asking for protection from all things negative and hurtful. Then I began the morning’s tasks.
As I went through my morning’s emails I came upon an email from the director of an organization I’d been attempting to work with. I’d been praying for Mother Father God to show me whether I should continue trying to work for these people, and the answer came to me loud and clear. As I read the email it became quite clear to me by the tone of what I was reading that this was simply not the place for me. I answered them with a note saying that I’d found a more workable position provided by a group that was much more cooperative, and knowledgeable of blind persons than were they, as well as having much less chaos in their offices. I explained that I was no longer interested in working with them in any way and requested they remove me from all BOD positions, and to not apply for a VISTA in my behalf. Thinking that would be the end of it, I went along with my day. To my utter shock and dismay, I saw an email from the director again a few moments later. The problem? The email had not been intended for me to see. The director had forgotten to exclude me from her writings, and I saw very unprofessional comments made to her staff about me. She wrote, “Oh my! She is quite the works.” I could not resist. I wrote back after clicking reply to all, and said the following, “Yes I am. The next time you wish to write about me please exclude me from your email.” Amazing and disappointing to say the least.
Here’s the deal. First off these people proclaim themselves to be a disABILITY Resource Center. Secondly they know absolutely nothing about blind persons and in fact are currently breaking several ADA laws by not doing so. I intend to remove my name from any PR concerning this center, and in fact may pursue reporting them to the ADA myself. I am dis-heartened to see such blatant disrespect as what has been shown to me over the last few months, and am extremely glad that the original friend who recommended me to this organization has had the good sense to move on to a better job. I don’t doubt that he is much better off.
I am torn as to how to proceed with either of the harsh situations I find myself dealing with this day.
So today I draw upon the powers represented above and call upon Goddess Dianna of the Moon, and ask her loving protection for this day.
I call upon Father God, who created the Moon thus giving her power, and ask him to light my way.
I ask for guidance and instruction as to how I should proceed.
So Mote it be and Blessid Be.
