CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #514

I recently had a dream where I'm standing in a crowd of people. A soft voice in my head tells me that if I let go of opinions, judgments and criticism of all those around me, I will be set free. The voice makes clear that those things are like invisible tethers. They are binding chains that I myself create. I obey the voice and cease to judge, criticize or have an opinion on all the people around me. Immediately I'm infused with a deep sense of peace. On awakening, I realize I've been given a gift. A life-changing epiphany. Revitalized, I showered, dressed and drove to work. A few minutes from my home it became clear that the DWP had once again chosen the morning rush hour to shut down a lane and create gridlock. I immediately had an opinion, judgment and criticism. But this time I was able to exercise my newfound nocturnal wisdom, let them all go, and crawl along at eight miles an hour with a sense of ease and comfort. Then my phone rang and I was told CBS refused to discuss a future for Mike & Molly, effectively cancelling it. Once again, I found myself with an opinion, a judgment and a criticism. To further complicate matters, Bruce Springsteen was on my car radio singing about "the ties that bi-yiyi- yi-yi-yi-yi-yi-yi-yi-yi-yi-yind." Regardless, I let them all go. And as promised in my dream, my heart was free. Broken, but free.
