Hello Amazing World,
I't s been a while since I posted on this site - which I refer to as "an online sanctuary for spiritual explorers". Thank you all who have continued to visit here over time.
This morning I awoke in one of those "funks" you might call it - just feeling weighted down with things I want to do, fretting that I don't have enough time to do them or to do them as well as I'd like to do them, feeling uninspired and uncertain and feeling badly for this which added to my "funk" and then fretting that I was losing my mojo. So with this all weighting me down I decided to revsit one of my favorite books on spiritual awakening - Conversations With God by Neale Donald Walsh. I found a link on youtube of the fantastic audio version as read by Walsh along with Ed Asner and Ellen Burstyn. Sometimes all it takes is stepping back and taking a good look at a situation to get us to let go of our negative claim on it. A work such as "Conversations with God" can be so helpful in this way. Is it "fixing us"? Is it taking away our problems? Is it making us, and others, change our mind? No - works such as this are tools that can encourage us to focus. Focus on what? Focus on what is already here and now: our joy. our truth.
On this earthly plane it is so easy and inevitable for us to get caught up in material concerns i.e : Oh how will I pay the rent and bills, "oh what if I'm not good enough for that position, oh what if he/she doesn't love me, oh what if my health doesn't improve, oh what if the economy collapses etc.etc." Those concerns and more can be ours at any moment. But our truth, our joy, our center is always here and now despite the dramas we create.
So I highly recommended listening to "Conversations With God". The next time you wake up feeling blue or burdened in any way - remember that this is understandable as we are all on the earth which is the plane of drama. But also remember that you have control over this. Focus on what you truly love and consciously create the drama you want.
Please let me know how you are all doing with this!
