I remember my Mother telling me one day that she always thought that I would become a Warrior for Peace some day. These were the thoughts she had when I was in her womb. These were the thoughts that fed me as my cells divided and my body and soul started to develop, the finest parts of my mother combining with those of my Father.
There is however, a fly in the ointment, a buzz in the speaker, a problem with reception. The problem is bigger for the fly though. Let us consider him for a momentito. From the flies point of reference.
He's really struggling, that little fella. Churning all six of his tiny little legs, flapping his wings like crazy, cursing his fly God's cruel nature. Thing's look pretty bleak for him, for who would take a moment to save a fly, he who would find a fly gal and lay little maggot eggs in out fruits and feces. He of the annoying buzz and the terrible manners, ruiner of picnics and vomitus ingestion methods. Flies eat by puking on you and then slurping up the soupy yummi-ness. They are easy to misjudge. They are on their own journey.
The details of our Journey are there to be celebrated as the lessons that they are in our development. Each irritating detail another teacher. The annoyance you attach to the details is something you have to be taught. What is it about living that annoys you so? Take steps to avoid similar annoyances in the future. Remove the perceived causes of your frustrations and re-evaluate your life from a different perspective.
Test the waters. Are you happy? Today I am, and that's all I got, and that's a lot!
The future is a concept and the past is remembered differently by everybody. Connect a string of wonderful "nows" together. Share your joy. Learn from the fly that shit happens. How we deal with it is what makes us sane or insane. I choose sanity. I choose love. Help another soul find their way, help them to frame their struggle in a healthy way.
Do not allow negative energy into your life, except to laugh at it and send it on it's way. "Begone with you foul money demon and take the demon of regret with you. This is a UNIVERSAL LOVE JAWN that we are all participating in here. You don't know it yet because you have had some bad teachers, I love you for being who you are and trying to do a good job for your unholy boss, but I am a being of light. You have no power in the universe of LOVE, the place my soul dwells.
I am a limited creature who woke up with a small taste of cosmic love in my mouth and found I liked it. I choose to focus my energy on understanding and nurturing this. Just as I do not understand the way of the fly, I do not understand the way of the demons, but he is just a dude, with limited understanding like my own, doing his best to get by. Trying to find his own demon peace. Chasing his pleasures the best way he can, but sorry, demon dude, you are not invited to this party. Take a little doggy bag of love with you on your way out, have a nice life, things get better, trust me. I was once a money demon too. I was once wracked with guilt. I was once a hurt and frustrated pain-filled creature until i realized that that was a self-perpetuating spiral , a drag on my spirit and the spirit of those around me, and I took small steps to make small changes and feel I am on the right path once again, but what fo I know. This is
Do you wake up filled with the sense of universal love and take one joyous breath after another? It can happen. The way is the way of Gratitude.
Thank the cool morning air for being such a delicious couunter-point to the furnace of the afternoon sun in Mexico. Tell the sun as it rises that you are grateful for the way he helps your garden out and for all that great, free vitamin D. Plan the best day possible in those morning moments, when you are closer to unconsciousness and clear thinking than you ever will be again until the next time, and adapt and adjust you plan according to the details of the day.
I woke up happy and that was pretty fine with me. I am sending you this message of UNIVERSAL LOVE and saying I will get to the rest when I get to the rest. I have to trust that the conversation I had with the sun this morning was the assignment that the universe had for me today. And that this is a pretty good start for now, a step in the right direction and to finish with another song... "love is all you need,"
