Stop Striving and Open to Blessings All Around Me

Well, I woke up this morning. Gave thanks for another day and all the blessings in my life including my little dog, Cosmo, the sun shining thru the window, the smell of organic coffee brewing and a great outward breath of having to achieve today. All of my goals from yesterday’s list that I did not achieve, I grabbed from my desk and simply set on fire while throwing it into the outdoor fire pit. No list of achievement today, thank you very much. Today I was going to simply breathe in and out and not achieve anything but instead open to all the blessings of life around me. How did that go? First off, I received a text from my publisher wondering why I had not showed up for a webinar on “How to Build an Internet Presence.” Secondly, my dear friend of many years texted me that she was on her way to Mexico to check herself into a Cancer Curing Clinic. I let go another deep breath for four counts and inhaled for three counts. I missed my Daughter in Santa Cruz with my Grandchildren, longed for my other daughter to call me instead of texting me and then I began to laugh while standing in line at a very upscale coffee house in Los Angeles, much to the amazement of the onlookers. What was she on? I had an “aha” moment and suddenly realized that my personal spiritual development for the past 30 years was a farce and needed to take a backseat to those that I loved and loved me and I truly cared about in my life. Why all the fuss about achieving something/a legacy/a personal achievement when that didn’t mean diddly squat when compared to the here and now that was fully present, omnipresent, I might add and deliciously waiting in the wings for my attention, my union, my let go into the mysteries of the unknowing and feeling open and comfortable with  all that the great mystery has to offer. Not only that, but welcome love with all my heart to all the blessings around me. So by this time, it was half past noon and I had made my way back home to my sanctuary.  So, I took my shoes off and curled my toes into the organic earth and spied a hummingbird taking a bath in the water of the spout of an Egyptian Obelisk fountain in my backyard. Tomorrow is another day, maybe then I will strive for perfection but today I will be fully present with the blessings all around me.th
