Spiritual Lessons

I’m feeling totally in the here and now…plaiting her hair and watching the motivational speaker Dr Wayne Dyer in his film ‘The Shift’…She’s plugged into an Indie rock song blaring from her headphones. Suddenly she looks up…zones in on my Mac screen…

Daughter: What the hell are you listening to?

Me: …It’s a film…about moving into the afternoon of our lives, recognising life changing moments, being fully present, living with awareness…

She stares at me long and hard, her eyebrows doing somersaults as she struggles to make sense of what I’m saying…She gives up and returns to the noise in her head…

Seconds later…she zones into my Mac screen again as Dr Wayne Dyer talks about the shift from ambition to meaning….

Daughter: He’s your leader isn’t he…

Me: You’ve lost me…

Daughter: That bald man is your leader…

Me: Again, you’ve lost me…

Daughter: Indeed I have mother..

She plays with a strand of hair while scrutinising Dr Dyer’s face…

Daughter: …Evidently to a cult of some kind….
