Let today be that one Day where you can see what Your Soul Sees, and more, see things the way that they could be seen…
If there is one thing that I have been “accused” of in the past is the ability to see the good in anything perceivable as being “bad.” There are a lot of people right now who are at the very end of one part of their lives and who have, without their realizing it, begun the second half. It’s weird and cool all at once, and the frank truth is that even though there are facets of our collective lives that are not that great, singly, too, it has to be a good thing when you think about the idea that everything you ever wanted to see in your life, no matter what is no longer there, is now and totally in manifest.
The good part is that even though we can physically see our “losses,” what we cannot see, at least a lot of us, is the idea that maybe it isn’t as much a loss as it is a clearing out of the old to make way for the new. I have a habit, most of the time, for getting to a point where I need to get to and then fall apart into a panic, and the panicking comes from the outer Me, the Me Who likes comfort and likes that she works in the field she works – it is that version of Me Who really likes not having to worry too much about the things that are held in manifest at this point, things that are what I have been calling in to my Life for many years now, and it is that version of Me that is the Ego part of me that, just as quickly as I can relax into the idea that I am in control of my Destiny and the fruition of the Dream that I have always held, that part can also be manipulated by that same version of Me to panic and ultimately make everything that I have worked so hard toward achieving take that much longer for me to see for real.
So for now, let’s go through some “what ifs,” okay?
What if the reason that the thing that is no longer there were not as important as is the thing that we cannot yet see because it has not yet been manifested through you, and it has not yet been manifested through you because you do not know that you are as powerful as you think you are?
What if the things that are no longer there are not there because in our smallness of ego-thought, the thing that cannot yet be tangibly Known or Seen is too big a thing or an ideal to fit into the “emptiness” left by the absence of the thing, the situation, the people, the thought? What if what it is that you have always Known as the thing you really wanted to do is so far much bigger than your own human thinking ability can conjure it as being,and what if God has decided that the sculpture that is You and Your Life needed to be totally and completely made no longer recognizable as what it all once was?
What if in all of these loses we each chose to see to it that everyday we take the time to rebuild ourselves, our Lives, and what if we chose instead to see the good that is always there instead of what could happen that we might not like?
What if, rather than fretting over the things and the situations and most of all, the people, who we think would be better off if they did things the way they know they should, and what if the situation at hand was not as harsh and what if you decided to see said same situation as a lesson and not something as harsh as Karma?
What if from this point on, instead of freaking out whenever there was some great big change happening, we each decided that it is our perception that has had us fooled all this time, and what if just this one time we bothered to question and not accuse, bothered to Know within us that what we are faced with now is but one more step on our own Path to Enlightenment.
What if tomorrow morning you woke up with all these new “what ifs” only to have figured out that “what if” is
far different than “is”? What if you woke up to that new way of thinking about the happenings and the worries and the fear and everything else in your life, and it all started with a simple little question – “What if…?”
Two tiny words which give us a whole lot of room to Dream, to Create within us what it is that we so dearly Desire to see in our lives….
What if you were able to see things from a new perspective?
I LOVE YOU ALL !
