You do realize, don't you, that there have been others - in lifetimes, millenniums, and civilizations past - who have been to some of the same "places" you've been to? Yet, they got so scared they lost control, turned away, or flat out quit.
Yep, and they surround you now in the unseen. Your greatest admirers.
Thanks, The Universe

Now, double it. Whatever it is you want, think of owning two of them. They're yours free and clear. Think of the implications their possession would have on your life. What would your neighbors say? Where would you keep them? What colors would you choose, what dimensions, what characteristics?
Okay, you're about to receive a third one, more than you could possibly use (at the moment), so who would you give it to? How would you tell them? What would their reaction be? Would you be able to help them take ownership? Would you be there to facilitate the transition, if necessary? What would your friends and family say about your generosity? Would you do it again? If so, for whom?
This exercise has now concluded. Drop it from your thinking. Resume enjoying the here and now, because it's the only place happiness resides, and every so often, as your mind wanders to thoughts of the above, smile with gratitude.
Choices, choices, choices, The Universe

Life is queer with its twists and turns,As every one of us sometimes learns,And many a failure turns about,When he might have won if he'd stuck it out.Don't give up, though the pace seems slow -You may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer thanIt seems to a faint and faltering man;Often the struggler has given upWhen he might have captured the victor's cup,And he learned too late, when the night slipped down,How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out -The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,And you never can tell how close you are -It may be near when it seems afar;So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit -It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit.

Do you have any idea how many princesses have gone unrecognized by their prince, because of logic? Or, how many princes have gone unrecognized by their princess, because of pride?
How many dreams were dashed when the handmaiden answered the door? Or when the gatehouse was mistaken for the mansion? Or when the calm before the storm of abundance and good fortune was viewed as a sign to retreat?
Happily, we've got forever and ever. And fortunately, it's never too late to see what one's missed, remain focused on the dream instead of the "hows," and move with unwavering faith.

Life's magic is a lot like a swift flowing river. No matter how long you've overlooked it or unwittingly swam against it, the instant you stop struggling you're back in the flow, hat down low, coolest cat on the block.
In other words, your so-called "baggage," ain't no thang.

There's so much time in a day. You could have breakfast, lunch and dinner on 3 different continents. You could outline the book you're going to write, start the screenplay adaptation, and watch "Gone With The Wind," before the sun even sets. Spend a day at work, and still have 16 hours left over. Or you could just think 10,000 different thoughts as you tool all over the city. Hey, the record for climbing Mt. Everest is under 9 hours, leaving 15 to nap and go Yeti searching.
There's so much time in a day. So much.

For what has been an eternity, dwelling in the vastness of the unseen, I've been preparing for these very moments...
You waking up to the truth of your magnificence and power, knowing, at last, that you're not alone and that you've never been judged. That life is a playground, not a laboratory; an adventure, not a test. Knowing that you are exactly who you dreamed you'd become, and exactly who the world most needs you to be. And, perhaps most of all, knowing that your thoughts create, your words shape, and your deeds summon energies befitting gods and goddesses.
Good thing I don't age.

|Remember you once told me that if ever all of the circumstances in your life were aligned just so, your soon-to-be friends were in all the right places at all the right times, and the financial markets, social climate, and global energies had all reached optimal points... you'd want to be gently nudged as a subtle sign that it was time to start doing new things, saying new things, and visualizing so that you might catch these gargantuan waves of change and surf to dazzling new heights? |
TODAY'S THE DAY!!

And if you don't insist that such behavior come from a specific person, my hands will be free to find you what you prepared for, or better.
