I went away, and didn’t even bother to tell you I was leaving. Sorry. Sometimes life takes us on a surprising detour – or perhaps it’s a change in path, I don’t know yet. (Truth is, at the time, I didn’t know I would be absent from here for so long.)
I promised myself I would not write here based on a certain schedule, but only when I am inspired or have something worth saying. Today I am inspired. I want to talk about the power of a small choice, and the potential it has to create big changes in one’s life. Since I am in the midst of the experience, I cannot yet see what ‘the ending’ to the story is, I can only share where I am in this moment of the process.
What can I tell you that will bring some insight to you as you walk on your path? What is unfolding for me now is, I suspect, the result of my continuing to hold in my heart the desire to find a way to be of service to a larger number of people. It’s not like I haven’t tried some other paths, modalities or strategies to ‘market’ myself – which I abhor, by the way, which is probably why it doesn’t work for me – but somehow, I’ve always felt I was trying to force myself into a spiritual shoe that didn’t fit…
And there, in those words, I find another powerful insight for myself about my own spiritual path thanks to the thing that took me away from this blog for so long. No, I am not ready to speak about it yet. It is not fully formed or integrated enough for me to want to do that. I have learned some pretty tough lessons from speaking too early about something. Don’t want to repeat that one any more.
What is important for this morning’s cup is that what is unfolding with lightning speed is a pathway I, at my human level and even with all my attention focused on doing whatever I was guided to do next, did not even see coming. I say to you, hold tight to whatever your dream, your vision for your life is, your heart’s desire is. Keep listening, and follow to the best of your ability the calling of your heart even if it appears that you are just stumbling along getting nowhere.
Trust me when I say this to you: one small choice, if it is in response to that heartfelt prompting, can totally change things for you in an instant. As I have said here many times, the Universe will rearrange itself to fit your picture of reality. Change your picture, change your reality, sometimes in a pretty dramatic way.
Now go make your very next, best choice. And may your day be glorious.
