In the Present Moment

When do you find yourself in trouble?
When do you start worrying?
When are you most concerned?
When do you panic?

I bet I can answer all four of those questions with six words:
When you are in the future.

It’s only when we think six months, a year, five years ahead that we that our panic button is pressed.  That’s why Eckhart Tolle has made such a huge impact on society in the past several years.  His book The Power of Now discusses the benefits of staying present.

Why forecast what your life will be like tomorrow when it is already decided?  I realize I link to my predestination search on Wisdom and Life often, but that’s only because it is a subject that comes up in my columns often.  My faith in that subject is rock solid.  That’s why I write about it and why I link to it so often.

You can entirely eliminate stress, panic, worry if only you stop forecasting the future.

Stay in the present moment.
Let the Universe decide your future.
Let God decide your future.
Let go and let God.

These may be cliche
These may be platitudes.

Unless you put them into action.
Unless you believe them.

Only ONE has your life in HIS hands.
Only ONE has your best interest at heart.
Trust that staying in the present is the best state to be in.  I’m sure everyone has felt calm, peace, serenity when they forget about what’s happening tomorrow; just as I’m sure you have felt stress, anxiety, panic when you look into the future.

The question then becomes which feeling do you enjoy?
Which feeling, brings you joylessness?

Which feeling do you want more of?
Which feeling were you created to experience?

Are you strong enough to choose to be in the present?
Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Law of Attraction and Meditation

Law of Attraction and Meditation:
These two topics would seem to fit together as perfect puzzle pieces, wouldn’t you think?  I never thought of them in the same sentence before, however I can see how they would fit together.  Law of Attraction (LoA)  after all is bring into your focus what you desire.  What’s the imperative word there?

If you said, focus then ding ding ding, you get the prize.  Focus is extremely important in meditation.  Remember as I said above one of the points in LoA is focusing on what you want?  What better way to focus than through meditation?  I am well aware of guided meditation as I’ve done it before.  I’m sure there are LoA guided meditations available.

The biggest challenge I have with being guided is that it does me no good.  I focus too much on the voice of the person speaking to me and not enough on my own personal space.  When I meditate I don’t like to be told what to see, where to go, what to do.  I need the freedom to travel unimpeded , to go where I feel most at peace.  I can imagine someone just learning to practice meditating would need some guidance, however I’ve been meditating for several years now and hearing someone’s voice does more to interrupt my calm than settle it.  Focus is what I need when meditating, and guided meditation simply doesn’t work for me.  It doesn’t mean it won’t work for you.  Maybe it will.

LoA attempts to bring to you what you desire.  The only way for it to do so is by deep focus.  Meditating can bring you to a place where you are extremely focused.  If you center on what you want whether it be a relationship, a career, an object, put some instrumental music on, close your eyes and simply drift away, staying centered on your desire.  You can sometimes reach your higher self in this way, the universal “you,” the place where your dreams exist.

Those who meditate daily say they can find that place with relative ease on a regular basis.  Once in this state, the essence of who are, some would say your soul is no longer with your body.  It has traveled outside.  This is when you can ask the universe for what it is that your shell, your physical desires.

It’s not easy to get to this place.  The more you practice meditation, the more likely it is that you will reach it.  You may not even be aware that you are in the state the first time you make contact with the Universal.  You may only be there for what appears to be a split second, but remember in previous entries here at Wisdom and Life when I said:
Time is different in the Spiritual Realm
.  I wrote another entry called Fixed Rules where I discuss how time varies between the spiritual realm and the physical realm.

What I’m getting at and why I brought up these two blogs here, is that even though you may feel as if you’ve spent only a split second in the Universal State, most likely the time you were there was much longer than your physical, than your shell can comprehend.  So while there you MUST make sure you voice your desire.  Someone (Our Guides?) will pick up on your desire and if it is in your Divine Plan your wish will manifest at the right time.
When the wish arrives, you must make sure to thank the Universe, your GuidesThe Masters so that they are aware.  This is an important step in practicing LoA.  By acknowledging the Universe, you are giving thanks to those who manifested your desires.

Meditating can help you reach that state where can speak with your guides and as I said above even though it may seem as if you’ve spent but a split second in that state, chances are you were there much longer than you know.

It’s important that you ask for your desire.
It’s important that you continually focus on your desire as you move into your meditative state.  The more you center on your wish the greater the likelihood that your masters, your guides will pick up on why you’re in the Universal state.

Remember to focus!

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

God cures the patients.

God cures the patients, but the doctor takes the fee.

 

Hawkeye Pierce
M*A*S*H*
Showtime


One of all my time favorite shows is M*A*S*H*.  I watch it as often as I can and two nights ago JUST as I turned the show on, having missed the first five minutes, I heard the above quote.  Interesting in and of itself.  But what I found completely fascinating is that I still wanted to write one more blog to stay two weeks ahead.

Many of you who have been with me on this blog journey for awhile now understand my feelings about writing:
–That I’m directed what to write.
–That I’m simply a conduit.
What I write is a direct result of divine guidance.

I clearly understand I may receive odd looks when I suggest such a thing and that’s just fine.  This is what I believe; and remember that adage from Law of Attraction that our thoughts create our reality?  My reality is that the Divine is everywhere.  We only have to seek it out and when we hear the voice speaking to us, not to ignore it.  Accept it and be thankful for it.

As it was the other night:
I believe I missed the first few minutes of M*A*S*H* for the direct reason that I’d hear that quote from Hawkeye, giving me the inspiration I needed to complete my blogging schedule.

Nothing happens without the Divine’s explicit permission.

Our transition?
Our challenges?
I wrote about one such challenge here a couple years ago:  Paraplegic Berkeley Student Walks.  This can be used in any context that I’m referring to today.  Make sure you read the follow up A Dangerous Thing where I discuss what I’m writing here.  That we have a divine schedule and that everything we do has already been decided.  So now maybe you understand why I resonated so deeply with Hawkeye’s quote.

Everything in our lives is Divinely mapped out for us long before we incarnate each lifetime.  So what does all this have to do with Hawkeye’s quote?
Nothing happens unless God decrees it.

This is something I believe with all my heart.  It is only because too much has happened in my life not to see this as my truth.  After certain events have occurred, I’ve clearly seen the divine’s hand at work.  I can’t list everything here so I will direct you to Being Spiritual.

I clearly understand that many of you may cringe when I invoke that word.  Rest assured, however, as I say at least once each time I use it, that I don’t mean the religious God.  I use the word in a spiritual context, a universal context, a divine context.  I can’t begin to explain to you how how deeply my spiritual roots go.  I don’t attend organized religion, because I’ve never been comfortable being told:
Believe this.
Don’t believe that.

We should be able to make our own choices on what we believe, not force fed a particular paradigm.  As I’ve maintained here for some time.  Everything, I feel comes down to choice.

What do you choose to believe?

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

God Laughing

If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.


Connecticut Senator Matt Lanier
Wednesday, January 16
Approximately 7:45 AM
on Chaz and AJ

WPLR FM in New Haven, Connecticut has been a staple radio station for most of my life.  I listened through the 1980s, through the 1990s and even now in the 2000s.  As I was driving into work on Wednesday, a 24 year old Connecticut State Senator said the above upon being asked if he had a girlfriend or planned on it.

I made a point of remembering the quote, repeating it again and again so that when I arrived at work I could write it down and begin this blog post.  There is, in that quote, a message to be worked out.  The message I received after hearing it is loud and clear:
Get out of the way and let God take over!

Or another way of thinking about it is that YES!  Predestination does exist. But then, you who have been following my blog are already aware that I’m convinced of that fact.

My plans were to be a successful writer.  When all of us grow up success equals financial freedom.  Isn’t that right? Fortunately, as I matured, I discovered that financial freedom didn’t always equal joy, happiness abundance.  I’ve seen people in my life who are financially rich beyond wonder; and yet they are miserable beyond repair.  I’d rather be abundant beyond wonder.  Okay,  Now I bet you’re wondering and asking what’s the difference?

The difference is in semantics.
Abundant takes into consideration more than simply finances.
Abundant means plenty of joy, having a career of love, means being surrounded by loving people.
Having abundance what you should be striving for.  If you have look for abundance you’ll be following God’s plan.

In other words:
Get out of the way and let God take over!

God had a different plan for me so I can definitely relate to Senator Lanier’s quote.  I think that’s one reason it so resonated with me.  I’m convinced that HE has our lives completely mapped out.  We just have to put one foot in front of the other and trust HIM implicitly.  God’s plan for us is bullet proof and it is only when we stray from HIS path that we find challenges.

I understand that I’ve written about this so many times in the past here but It is such an important piece of information that I need to continue discussing it:
Do NOT do NOT let anyone dissuade you from your dream.  If you have a goal, a dream, you MUST follow it to its fruition.

That dream?  That goal?  It is God’s plan for you.  Find a way to pursue your living following your dream and as I’ve said before:
You’ll never work a day in your life!

One of the things that Chaz and AJ kept saying was that it was hard to believe a 24 year old could not only reach political office but also how mature beyond his years that Senator Lanier appeared.

Who says that? was the mantra of the day and after the Senator spoke the line I quoted above.  As I’ve maintained here from the start of Wisdom and Life, my listening is finely attuned to passages such as this.  Only because I’ve been so steeped in this paradigm (Another favorite passage I’ve used to describe myself) for so long that when I hear someone else speak as I believe, I become extremely sensitive and listen for the next resonation.

I particularly like the image of God laughing, because it is not something you typically associate with God.  But why not?  Again, I refer to religion (And the VERY LAST thing I want is to invoke the wrath of the many followers and readers I’ve picked up over the course of my three years of writing Wisdom and Life.)  This is how I ALONE see religion, as not where  I feel comfortable.  It doesn’t mean my view is the correct one.

It all comes down in the end to choice.  How do YOU choose to see the world?  To see religion?   What does religion teach us about the almighty?
–That HE is vengeful
–That HE will deny some of us.

Do you really believe that?
Or do you believe as I do:
I believe in a benevolent loving God
I believe God LOVES EVERYONE.
I believe God created us and he won’t forsake ANY of us.

Even though I truly believe everything I write about here, I HAVE a challenging time seeing God laugh, seeing God as humorous.  That’s because the philosophy of God in religion is so deeply ingrained in each of us that no matter how much we want to believe we have, and are becoming more enlightened, there is a shred left that simply can’t or won’t be torn off.

I think each of us, on some deep level must admit that to be the case.  However, that being said, I always enjoy hearing someone else speak my story.  It goes to show that there are people out in the world who are continuing to progress and aren’t intimidated to show the effort they are making.

Are you one of them?

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Change or be Changed

“You can change or you can be changed. Initiating the change yourself is a lot less painful. The choice is yours. Today, think about those areas in life you have accepted won’t change. We all have them.  These are the situations we don’t expect to change, so we don’t work on them. If you can’t think of any, ask those around you:
Where do you see that I’ve given up seeking change?  Where am I not even trying?”

Spiritual Random Message
iPhone/iPad App

Change or be changed.
This is another recurring theme here at Wisdom and Life.

–Change happens whether we accept it or not, whether we like it or not, whether we initiate it or not.
–Change is a matter of life.  And since that’s the case, I’d rather embrace it, then run from it.  It’s like I’m fond of saying:
Row your boat gently DOWN the stream.

Because it is when you resist it, it  is when you go against the current, it is when you attempt to prevent change; that’s when you get in trouble.  I’ve written here previously that you can’t change someone else.  You can only change yourself.  You will not be rowing down the stream when you attempt to change someone else’s behavior.  I learned that lesson and it took me over thirty years to recognize.

Today, think about those areas in life you have accepted won’t change. We all have them.

Was about to write that I don’t know that I agree with the above quote, but after reflecting on it, there are examples where something can’t and won’t be changed no matter how we attempt to influence our lives.  As I’ve also written here previously, there is a the matter of predestination.  It is something that I sincerely believe is part of the fabric of our lives.  As an example:
Have you been attempting to chart a new course in your life and are constantly butting up against debris?
Maybe you’re looking for a new job?
Maybe you’re wanting to move out of town, out of state?

Is something preventing you from initiating these changes?  Ya know what is causing that?  It’s called predestination.  Yes there are things we can do to change our lives.  However if you are running into blockages, blockades, stumbling blocks when attempting to initiate a change then back off.  Let your life flow like that unobstructed river..  I guess what I’m saying here is:
–Accept change when it happens.
–Don’t struggle.
–And when something you want to change doesn’t, remember it’s what’s supposed to be.

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Squandering Now

People say. “If I’m always setting goals and reaching for the future, then am I not squandering my now?” And we say if in your now you’re using a future event to make you feel good, you are still feeling good in your now. And that’s the best use of now that you could ever find.

Abraham Hicks


Goals are important.  Even if, as I say the major plans for your life have already been mapped out.  I’ve written about this before here.  Since we respond to joy and since joy comes to us from the journey, it seems to me that setting goals is a twofold success:
1.  It gives us something to aim for, When we have a goal we begin to travel the road to meet that goal.

2.  If we reach our goal, if it was something that we were supposed to do, then we have attained a success.  That provides us with an ego boost.

What we can’t do is let a goal not reached bring us to our knees.  We have to remember that for every goal we don’t attain, it simply means that something better is coming.  Law of Attraction is a powerful tool and we can all use it to our benefit.  As with all tools we first need to learn the basics.  I’ve mentioned here many times how much LoA has changed the way I live my life.

Law of Attraction can be seen in Predestination, Spirituality.  All major Religions have aspects of Law of Attraction.  What we need to do is look at how LoA compares to Religion.  In the movie, The Secret, there is a scene where someone says something to that effect, that:
All major Religions have aspects of Law of Attraction.

Study Law of Attraction and you’ll see this.  I believe LoA is just another way of expressing our spirituality.  They are intertwined.

What are you doing when you ask for something?  When you are setting a goal?  Who exactly are you asking?  The Divine, right?  In LoA terms you’re asking the universe, correct?  In Spirituality, another word for Universe is the Divine.  In religion those two words translate to God, correct?  So can you now see where my Spirituality, my Religion has deepened since discovering Law of Attraction.

Setting goals is extremely important in the process of moving forward in our lives.  If we didn’t have goals in mind we certainly wouldn’t be able to find our way through this adventure called life.  Goals are part of our predestined plan.  I’ll use myself as an example:
From early on in my life, my life goal was to be involved in books, somehow, whether it be writing them, reading them; somehow my plan included being paid to do something in that field.  That goal was in my predestined plan.  Before I incarnated during this lifetime I’m in now, I can certainly relate to the fact that my soul, my source, my essence looked at my life now and said:
Yes.  This WILL happen.  He will struggle.  There will be challenges along the way.  But when he reaches his goal, he will be grateful.  He will be joyful.  He will love his career choice.  So yes!  This is the life that I choose for this soul to enter.

The next time you reach a goal look up and say a silent prayer, or say it out loud.  Whatever.  Thank your soul.  Thank God for providing you the opportunity to reach that goal.  Because you know without those two very important aspects of your life, nothing would be possible.

Have you seen this at work in your own life?
Have you attained a success and suddenly realized this is something you always wanted to do?  If so, that’s because that goal was part of your predestined plan.  Remember that always!

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Setbacks–How Do You Deal With Them

Yup!  Another SeededBuzz column today.  And another from Bonita Kay Summers Intuitive Perspective.  When You Don’t Get What You Want is a bit different as it is a video blog from Bonita.  It’s the first time I’ve linked to a video here.  I like her message as it is truly what I believe.  One of the things that resonated deeply with me is what she said about The Universe knowing that we don’t need what we want when we seek it.  God/Source/The Universe whatever entity you put your trust in knows beyond doubt what is best for us.  As I’ve maintained here at my own blog since its inception is the fact that we have a predetermined set of circumstances that we simply cannot change, as in predestination.  I truly believe this and if you look back at that link I just inserted with the word predestination I think you’ll come to see the value in understanding exactly what that term means to me and quite possibly to you as well.  Another example in her video column that spoke deeply to me is where Bonita discusses about Messages, warnings and events.  I have some really good friends who owned a business in the town I live in and for the longest time they kept the business open long past when they should have.

They’d been getting subtle messages from the universe that it was time to move on.  They ignored those messages.  Warnings came next.  Then the event happened where the business was taken away from them.  If they had heeded the messages then the event would not have occurred as it did.

Fortunately, as is ALWAYS the case, my friends are now in a much better place then they were when they owned the business.  That’s another thing we all have to remember, that no matter what the challenge that arises in our lives, the challenge always makes room for something better.

Bonita also uses a phrase I’m fond of:
When a door closes, a window opens.  We have to be cognizant of looking for that opened window.

We have to make a habit of looking for the window.  Many of us are unaware that this even happens.  We automatically think that when something we deem destructive occurs in our lives, that life as we know it has ended and there is no way out of the current sent of circumstances we happen to find ourselves in.

That can’t be further from the truth!  God/Source only wants what’s best for us and what’s best for us may be a clearing away of the old to make room for the new.  When something of a challenge arises we must be prepared to find the blessing.  For there is always a blessing.  As Bonita said in her blog:
When you don’t get what you want, trust that you’re on the right path.  Trust that the universe knows better than you.
The Universe always has your best interest at heart.

I LOVE her quote where she says:
So often when we’re trying to make things happen and they don’t it may be a message that our lives are supposed to take a different direction.

If we can ONLY remember this and not only remember it, but put it into practice in our daily lives, can you imagine how much stronger we can be? How much better we can be?  How much healthier we can be?

Let’s see if we can start down a new path where we recognize when a door closes and find that opened window.
Let’s see if we can start down a new path and recognize when something we want so badly that doesn’t occur and see if we can realize that something better is waiting around the next corner.

Can we do that?  If so our lives will markedly improve.
Let’s make a resolution right here and right now that we will.

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

The Perfect Age

You are Beings who intend to come forth and to continue to expand and grow and change. What is the perfect age? “Well, it’s the age where I finally understand my freedom, and I finally understand that I am free to create, and it’s the age that I am at my most beautiful.” And we say, by whose standards? In other words, who gets to decide the perfect age? And we say, rather than determining what the perfect age is, why not decide what the perfect state of being is—and then discover that you can find the perfect state of being at any age.

Abraham-Hicks
Tuesday, October 11

Age is simply a number.  How many times as someone said to you:
Oh man, if I could go back and do it over again, I’d do this differently and that differently and that differently too.

Would you REALLY?

Don’t you understand that if you WERE to go back and change EVEN one aspect of your life, everything else would change too?  Deviate one step and your life would take on a whole new aspect.  Is your life so difficult now that you would want to change it so drastically and not know what the outcome would be?

I think people don’t take into consideration what changing one thing could do.  Your life is perfect as it is.  You’re right where you’re supposed to be.  Do you understand that you ARE free to create your life as you want it to be?  There is free will up to a point.  Yes, I believe the monumental aspects of our lives are already mapped out.  I’ve said it before.  I DO believe in predestination.  There are some things in our lives that can NOT be altered.

Our birth day is one of them.  That simply can NOT be changed.  It is known well before we incarnate.

Where we will incarnate, to who we will incarnate (who are family will be.)  That can NOT be changed.

Where we will live, how many times we will move and where we will move.  That can NOT be changed.  Look at your life for example.  Have you ever thought you were going to move out of a town or state that you lived in, only to find something blocking your way?  That’s the Divine’s guiding hand putting up a roadblock.

Our transition day is also mapped out.  Unfortunately, that day CAN be changed, either by ourselves.  We can choose to transition at our own hand.  I was at the Madison Coffee Shop for breakfast one morning last week  in Madison Connecticut and I walked in on a conversation about the Death Penalty.  It was asked would you rather be put to death or spend life in prison.  Marge, the woman who asked the question turned to me and said:
I already know your answer, Chris.

Since I FIRMLY believe we all return again and again, and Marge knows this is a strong belief of mine, she thought I’d say put me to death.  I surprised her with my answer.  I went on to explain why I believe the death penalty is wrong not only morally, but also because it is disrupting God’s road map.  Humanity has NO right to step in and decide when someone’s life is over.  Only God should make that decision.

If our life is cut short by our own hand or by human violence of ANY sort, that’s a one way ticket back to physical form. We are incarnated to physical for a specific reason, or a purpose and if we do not discover that reason or if we don’t have the time to find that reason, because our lives have been taken from us, we MUST return again so we CAN discover our purpose.

So what IS the PERFECT age?  It is when we have found what we are supposed to do and when we set our minds to getting there, to doing it.  If ANYTHING stands in our way, if ANYTHING prevents us from doing what we are supposed to do, whether it be someone well meaning telling us:
Oh you can’t do that.  How are you going to make a living doing THAT?  If we agree with that sentiment and deviate from God’s plan, we will MOST ASSUREDLY return and find ourselves in the same situation when we reach the age it’s time to make that decision again.

If our lives are cut short by our own hand or by violence from another hand, we will surely come back to the same point in time again.  We will continue returning and be in the same position over and over until we learn the lesson that we MUST follow the map that God has laid out for us.  Until we learn that lesson we will be placed in the same position again and again, much like an LP record that skips when there is a scratch on its surface.

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Alice and a Fork in the Road

“One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. “Which road do I take?” she asked. “Where do you want to go?” was his response. “I don’t know,” Alice answered. “Then,” said the cat, “it doesn’t matter.”

Brian Tracy Daily Quotes

Take a step, ANY step.  Don’t stagnate for fear of taking the wrong step.  I’d rather go in one direction or the other instead of staying put.  If you come to a fork as Alice does in the above quote, what’s the difference what way you go if you have no clue?

The next time you’re out hiking in the woods and you come to a fork, how many times do you stay at the fork?  If you don’t know which way to go, are you going to sit down in the middle of the path and simply give up, not go in ANY direction at all?  How silly would that be?  If you go in one direction and come to a challenge, you can do one of two things:
–Keep going and persevere through that challenge
–Or you can turn around and return to the fork and go down the other path.

As it is in life.  I know you’ve heard it said here:
Life is about moving forward.

Sometimes, however in order to move forward you have to take a step or two back.  It really makes no difference in the grand scheme of your life whether you turn around every once in awhile.  Your life is entirely mapped out anyway.  I discussed Predestination here before.  I SINCERELY believe there are certain aspects in our lives that simply can NOT be changed.  I’ve written about this before in the entries called:
Your Life Is Like A River
and:
Being Spiritual

If it is true that your specific life plan is already mapped out by the divine then you simply can’t make a mistake when it comes to getting to your life nee, your soul’s goal.  You can certainly change the route and the time it takes to reach your soul’s ambition, but not the goal itself.  Whatever is happening now, wherever you are on your journey, just take comfort in knowing that you are RIGHT where you are supposed to be.  If you come to a fork in the road, a fork in your life, if a decision has to be made and you don’t know which way to go, just take a step, take ANY step; and believe in yourself, believe that the divine has you firmly in its embrace.

There are no mistakes!
There are no wrong paths!

Be courageous and know that the Divine won’t let you down.
The Divine loves you and that love for you will keep you safe and will keep you moving forward even if you have to take a step or two backward.  Keep the quote:
“One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. “Which road do I take?” she asked. “Where do you want to go?” was his response. “I don’t know,” Alice answered. “Then,” said the cat, “it doesn’t matter.”
above in mind and take it to heart.

You are right on track.  You are right where you’re supposed to be.

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you all.

In God’s Hands

God/The Divine/Source.  Whatever you believe has your life in their hands.  There is no need to fear.  Have a catastrophe recently happen?  A job loss?  The passing of a loved one?  Lost your home.  You MUST always remember that God is on your side.  As the music group Genesis sings in:
Jesus He knows Me:
if you promise to be good, try to be nice
God will take good care of you.That’s true.
God has you covered.
God has you in his embrace.
God will NOT let you down.Whatever is happening in your life, whether good or bad has been determined long before you incarnated.

I can hear the questions now.

Are you referring to predestination?
Yup!  That’s EXACTLY what I’m referring too.  Our lives have been mapped out for us.  There is no need to fret about what MIGHT happen.  What if it’s a bad thing?  There are no bad things.  Everything is a lesson to help us move forward.  Life is about moving forward.

You are loved!
You are cared for!
You are protected!
You are watched over!

Are you worried that you haven’t found your gift yet?  What you’re supposed to be doing with your life?  Are you wondering when it will be discovered?

Have you encountered the saying:
All In Good Time.?

Don’t struggle because you feel left behind.
Don’t compare yourself to others.

You are an entity unto yourself.  We all find our way eventually.  Our lives are a road map and we simply have to navigate the map.  If you encounter a roadblock, go around it.  You’ll know what feels right.  What feels right is a spiritual bliss when you’ve discovered what you’re supposed to do.  Don’t let anyone dissuade you from following your bliss.

God has a predetermined destination for you and if you sway from that path because someone tells you:
Oh you can’t do that.  How will you earn a living doing that?

You’ll find yourself dissatisfied, because you did something someone else told you to do,  NOT what you REALLY wanted to do.  If you’ve discovered what feels right in your heart, then that’s what God has planned for you.  To not choose God’s plan will only play out again in your next incarnation.  You’ll once more be struggling with the same set of circumstances again.

Remember when I said life is about moving forward?  If you don’t move forward during this life cycle, you’ll come back to this EXACT time in the next one.  So pay close attention when you feel joy, bliss, spiritual when you’ve found something that brings those feelings about.  That’s what you’re supposed to do with your life.  The plan has been discovered.  The road map has been travelled.  You’ve found your destination.  How silly would it be to turn back after you’ve reached home?

Life is about moving FORWARD,
NOT moving BACK!

God has your back.  When HE points you in a direction, it will be foolhardy to detour.  Follow God’s plan for you and you’ll never feel lost again.

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.
