To the ones who complain to me when their mate engages in texts and late night phone calls with an ex who is trying to lure him back: Not to worry. He’s at your place while he’s doing it and he tells you all about it. If he wanted to be with them, he’d be with them. Meantime, feel free to text and call whomever you wish if you feel you’re lacking attention. Nothing moves you on to a better feeling thought like a new flirtation. After reading Wiki and Merriam Webster definitions (which differ) of flirtation, I will say that when I use the word, there is no romantic or sexual promise in it. Merely interest in and appreciation of who and what someone is and does. My point is we each, regardless of conventional relationship obligations, must make it a point to spend time with those who uplift us and inspire us and add a pleasant experience to our life. Don’t expect to get it all from one person, because when that person leaves, you will then have nothing. Have a collection of friends who make you happy, and a variety of sources that stimulate and inspire you. Then when your world and everything in it morphs and changes, you’ve got a big support team to draw encouragement and inspiration from.
You must un-learn what you have been programmed to believe since birth. That software no longer serves you if you want to live in a world where all things are possible. Jacqueline E. Purcell
I just revised 44 blog posts where I had the email address incorrect. Sheesh…
We are all Vibrational Beings. You’re like a receiving mechanism that when you set your tuner to the station, you’re going to hear what’s playing. Whatever you are focused upon is the way you set your tuner, and when you focus there for as little as 17 seconds, you activate that vibration within you. Once you activate a vibration within you, Law of Attraction begins responding to that vibration, and you’re off and running–whether it’s something wanted or unwanted ~ Abraham~Hicks
Q: Robert, when you say, “Sit in the silence” to find the Self, naturally a river of thoughts flow, but it’s okay to sit in those thoughts and just watch?
R: When you observe your thoughts, you are sitting in the silence.
S: Even if you sit day after day and the thoughts may not even slow or anything. But that’s okay because you’re still sitting by yourself?
R: As long as you’re not identified with the thoughts, let the thoughts come and let them go. As long as you can be the observer of the thoughts, then you’re in the silence. Continue reading
I wrote on Facebook last night: “I just noticed I have no quarterly property tax bills for 9/30/12 – I have notices of proposed taxes and new valuations saying tax bills will be sent out on Nov. 1. Does this mean no 9/30 payment or shall I go down to the tax office tomorrow with the 6/30/12 paid bills and pay on them anyway? The values and taxes appear to be the same…” Then I got the idea to go to the Property Appraiser’s website and see if they said something there about it. Upon inspection, I learned I could find and pay my taxes online there also. I went to the website and did a search, then clicked on the link for “Tax Collector Info” and the bill showed there. This happened because I got so used to having them sending me paper bills and return envelopes a month ahead of time, but I know it’s my responsibility to be aware of what I owe and when it is due, regardless of what “they” do. So I really have nothing to complain about. I paid the property taxes online on the spot.
Afterward: Two days later I found the property tax bills in my chair where I’d been sitting on them. I place things in my chair so I see them as soon as I go into the office. Unless I go in while it’s dark….
I do not want to step so quickly over a beautiful line on God’s palm
as I move through the earth’s marketplace today.
I do not want to touch any object in this world
without my eyes testifying to the truth
that everything is
Something has happened to my understanding of existence
that now makes my heart always full of wonder
I do not want to step so quickly over this sacred place on God’s body
that is right beneath your own foot.
As I dance with precious life today.
A friend asked recently what I thought about her showing interest in someone at her church. Scenario: she and Domino, her ex, live together because she can’t afford to move out and get a new place. She drives Domino to work and watches his elderly mom each day. She’s afraid to get too interested in someone else because if she leaves, Domino has no one to assist him. Domino has told her she is not “the one” for him, but they get along well so she stays. The problem is she wants to find “the one” for her, if there is any such creature. I told her it didn’t matter so much what she did on the physical plane, where she lived, etc. because she could come to a place of understanding and be able to perceive it differently even in the midst of it. Of course, moving out would be best, cutting the cord would be best, he’ll find his way, she can find hers. But not if she’ll continue to feel guilty and obligated to help him “because he hasn’t another friend in the world.” If she’s going to feel guilty and obligated, there’s no point in moving out. She can stay and think, “I will focus my attention on whatever and whomever pleases me and from that point on I will attune myself to inner guidance to be show the way, step by step. I can help Domino arrange for other assistance, to help him attract a good live in nanny for his mom, and he’ll find transportation. I can remind him of these things, I can let him know it’s possible to attract the perfect scenario as we talk about it and add more to that thoughtform so it will grow and become reality.” We’ll know what thoughts she chooses by what shows up next in her life. Nice to know we’re in control of all that, huh?
Allowing is not about tolerating something that is vibrationally offensive. Allowing is about setting your tone so that only that which is in harmony with your tone is allowed to come to you.
I love that scene in the Steve Martin movie, The Man With Two Brains, where he’s speaking to a large wall portrait of his deceased mother, asking whether he should marry a rather unsuitable woman, and he asks the portrait, “Mom, give me a sign, should I or shouldn’t I?” Suddenly a dark storm comes up, hurricane-like wind rushes through the house sending papers flying and the wall portrait begins spinning crazily on the wall, while a disembodied voice shrieks “Nooooo!!!!!!!” Steve Martin looks again at the portrait and says, “Just a sign, Mom, any kind of sign.” We laugh, but we’ve all experienced it, being blindly oblivious to messages and guidance, since in retrospect they loom so large. Two weeks ago, my roommate and I decided to change our living arrangement before it affected our friendship. We got out just in time. Continue reading
