Mop guilt.

Message Bookmarked

You walk three steps into a room and then look up to find a man holding up a mop and looking up at you.

He probably doesn't mind that you've just stepped onto his freshly mopped floor -- someone was bound to do it, and you needed to walk through the room either way -- but still, it was pristine, and he was almost finished with the room, and you blundered right into it.

It's a sad feeling.

think of the mop man like the buddhist monk making his sand mandala, you have now both done your part in affirming the impermanence of the physical.

I just walk lightly with a sort of sheepish "So sorry!" look on my face. No guilt whatsoever, he should be mopping at 3am when nobody's about.

be sure to tell the mop man about your monk vision, he will be thrilled.
