Fixing a hole!

A few months ago, while I was driving around town running errands, the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper's album was playing through my speakers.

Although I'm not sure of the original intent of the lyrics to Fixing a Hole, in a later interview, Paul McCartney stated that the some of the lyrics came to mind when he was working on his farmhouse on the west coast of Scotland.

The opening lines go like this (cue music!)

I’m fixing a hole where the rain gets in

And stops my mind from wandering

Where it will go.

However, the first phrases of the chorus seem particularly apropos to non-duality.

And it really doesn't matter if

I'm wrong, I'm right

Where I belong, I'm right

Where I belong.

I just had to laugh. There is only just this moment! We are always right where we belong!
