Safe and Sane or Basking in the Risk: What Will We Find Along the Way to the Sweet Stuff?
It’s been two weeks for me on the traveling now. As I schedule book signings and promotions down the road for my new book, Love Above and Beyond, I wrestle, as many of us do, with what is practical and what is the impractical thing I am being asked to do next by the Universe.
I write this blog today because I sense that we are all standing in that place where we are being asked to walk forward, but the path is only slightly illuminated. If we want to feel safe and sane, and if we need for others around us to approve of our lifestyle choices, we wait. We wait for the path to show us clearly where we are headed so we can decide whether we like what we see. And that waiting could and is quite likely to last forever.
For me, maybe for all of us, it is a time to embrace uncertainty, bask in the energy of risk, and know it is ok to not know.
Doing the Best We Can
I think that no matter the specifics of what is being asked of us at any point in our lives, the only thing we are really being asked is to do the best we can. I think that’s what we are all doing, too. Our best. So every day I wake, meditate and ask,
“What am I to do today?”
Then I get up and do whatever that is. Most times it’s as simple as showing up in every moment light, kind and cheerful. And what I am discovering is that for the most part, it feels pretty good not knowing once we let go of the need to know. In my Love Above and Beyond writings, astral lessons taught me that, like one of those yummy cream filled donuts, in order to get to the sweet stuff in the middle, often we have to make our way through the boring stuff, the tasteless stuff, and sometimes it all falls apart on the way. And even when we think we know what’s coming next, when we plan out everything to support our inner and comfort and happiness, we don’t know. Inevitably, here comes the monkey wrench! The yucky bite! Being OK with not knowing is choosing freedom over bondage. And I say, “Yay for that!”
