A friend writes: “What about the issue of karma/karmic debts that we have to repay in our lifetime? Sometimes I honestly feel that “bad” or seemingly unjust things occur regardless of all the positive vibrational energy we send out into the universe.” Good question. When you’re in a good place and doing all the “right” things and still get hit by a karmic backlash, that’s simply past momentum coming back around. Soon enough you will work thru it all.

It’s all about perception. An elderly neighbor called me this morning: “A big, black man just went into your garage. He knocked on my door and I didn’t open it.”
Me: “Oh, that’s the next door neighbor’s teen, he just wanted to use the phone.”
Some folks see dastardly doings in the making no matter what they look at.
The Universe is not punishing you or blessing you. The Universe is responding to the vibrational attitude that you are emitting. ” Abraham-Hicks
How awesome is THAT, that WE are in control of what the Universe sends us more of.
Accept what is as if you had chosen it, and avoid creating stories and hypothetical outcomes that don’t exist. You will avoid a lot of anxiety and stress if you simply accept what is happening and concentrate the mind in the present moment, without thinking about what could potentially happen as a result of this problem. The future doesn’t exist. Only now exists. The problem isn’t the problem. Your thoughts, attitudes, and emotions towards the problem is where the self-induced suffering will occur.
Wherever I am is wherever I am meant to be, whatever I am doing is whatever I am meant to be doing and whatever everyone else is doing is exactly what they are meant to be doing – this is contentment. If you do want to change where you are, or what you are doing, the first thing is to be content with wherever you are and whatever you are doing right now! Paradoxically that’s what attracts opportunities and invitations to be somewhere else! Why? Because you are a living magnet, and contentment is one of your most attract-ive qualities. And the law of attraction says that according to your dominant thoughts so you will attract the people and circumstances into your life. Being content right now attracts the best possible future. ~ Brahma Kumaris, Mt Abu

“Everything in your life is there as a vehicle for your transformation. Use it.” Ram Dass –> So this means everyone who rubs you the wrong way. This means the bad news you continue to watch on tv. Everything. It’s ALL grist for the mill. Let it grind away your judgments, your angers, your fears about the future. Let it transform your life into one of golden appreciation every moment forever, no matter the circumstances.

A sunset dip in the pool, water was 81 degrees. I have two skinny pool noodles that I love using new ways! Today I twisted them into pretzels and stuck my arms through and I swam up and down the pool with them. They keep me high enough to keep my hair out of the water. “Where’d you learn to swim? From a dog?” Very funny. No, I just never got the hang of swimming and don’t put my face under. But I can float like a mofo!
