I woke up several times during the stormy night to hear the metal door of the gas meter box banging as the wind would get underneath and lift it from its catch. I had some choices...
1. I could get up and go out into the rain and try and put something underneath it to cushion the door.
2. Ignore it.
3. Get frustrated and run a story in my mind that would keep me awake!
I realised that the banging door was a metaphor for the noisy, judgemental, ego mind! It had a very strong pull because it was so loud! I chose to ignore it and as I did I realised that in my life my only choice is to choose to accept what is, let it play its loud noise in the background and remain at peace in my mind OR let my mind run stories of pain, suffering and misery about the issues that I don't want to accept. I went back to sleep to the sound of the banging door! My ego mind is the banging door! To be at peace in my mind is the accept the world and others as they are and to stop arguing with it. As the Beatles song goes..."Let it be, let it be......"
