It’s so easy to worry.
It’s so easy to ruminate,
Change the channel.
Change the frequency.
Change to thoughts of your heart’s desires.
When your familiar, habitual thoughts of worry come back,
KEEP changing the frequency.
Go to picturing your heart’s desires.
Go to gratitude.
Align your energies with THOSE thoughts.
And watch what happens!!
Our thoughts become the fabric of our lives.
How is that, you ask?
Because thoughts are energy, going out into the Universe.
We are energy-beings
And the frequency of what we focus the majority of our attention on
Flows to us as form and experience. Truly.
Focus as much of your attention as possible on your heart’s desires.
You will change your world.
Catching raindrops on your tongue;
Splashing through the puddles;
Watching the moon come up.
Skipping together, in the middle of an evening walk;
Cooking together, then
Enjoying the results;
Fireworks on the Fourth of July -
Or any other time for that matter,
A blanket on the grass, live music perhaps,
And people we love.
There’s your conscious mind.
Then there’s your subconscious mind.
Then there’s your Divine Mind.
Your awareness, your understanding and your dwelling
In the connection, the oneness of these
And the all-providing activity of the Divine Mind
Is your source
Of form and experiences you can barely imagine.
Said another way:
Your thoughts in your conscious mind
And God responds.
Dwell in the positive, the happy, the joyous.
We so want to please others.
So we don’t answer honestly, truthfully.
We skew it to please (we think).
Oh - and hey - we do the same thing to ourselves!
We don’t face honestly, about what we REALLY want.
That we are far from victim - because we are able.
That we can trust - and believe - and move toward joy.
Time for honesty.
Time for facing who we are,
And sharing our REAL self with the others.
At the restaurant - meaningful compliments & gratitude to your server.
On the phone - a word about their gracious help.
In the parking lot - an offer to take their cart to the cart stall.
In the online chat - a thank you for their bright and friendly voice.
Instantly - you can help anyone on our planet.
All most people want really is to feel good about themselves, eh?
And how it ricochets back to you when they do
After your bit of love to them.
We have lost too many people we loved,
in the past couple of years.
We are still here to give our world love,
Through our grief and loss,
Comes the very strength we need.
Rest easy, our loves. We miss you desperately.
And therein we find strength to go on.
We say, “Godspeed
...and God’s strength upon us all.”
Years ago, I heard Dr. Wayne Dyer say,
“If it happened, it was supposed to happen that way.
"How do I know?
"Because that’s how it happened.”
That understanding has carried me through
so many, many ‘happenings’
That I could have obsessed on and made myself crazy.
Instead, go to trust and ask for strength and guidance.
Notice how we look back at things that we waited for
And think, it seemed a long wait then, but now it’s WAY over.
It seems to take so long!
Longer than we thought!
Yet, one day, we’ll be looking back at it,
Instead of forward to it.
So rejoice in today!
Rejoice in the wait!
It will be a glorious part of the past-
…that we yearn for more love, more connectedness?
Perhaps it’s to help us remember to love others, to connect more.
(And, it’ll come back to us many, many-fold!)
Do it today.
