Loving each and every day!


Some days flow, nice and easy; and others like someone dropped a toaster into the bath water! No matter how your day goes today; know that it's yours. You own it, will handle it as it goes and at the end of the day, you can reflect. One thing for sure, you can always smile and know it all begins again tomorrow :)If you don't have the idea, the answer, the information that tells you what can be done when
and where, relax.
Do what has to be handled in the present. Do you
have to go to the bathroom? Do it now. Do you
have to answer the phone? Are you hungry? Does
your body need some exercise? Is there some
energy that is calling you to go within and
meditate? Do it. Handle the simple needs right
now. You can let the process work by itself, as
you handle the practical needs.
The process is your having the faith that "the
Spirit in me is working and will supply me with
what I need when I need it."
A lot of people feel threatened if they feel they are being asked to question their cherished beliefs or their perception of reality. Yet questioning is what keeps our minds strong. Simply settling on one way of seeing things and refusing to be open to other possibilities makes the mind rigid and generally creates a restrictive and uncomfortable atmosphere. We all know someone who refuses to budge on one or more issues, and we may have our own "sacred cows" that could use a little prodding. Being open-minded means that we are willing to question everything, including those things we take for granted. The willingness to question everything doesn't necessarily mean we don't believe in anything at all, and it doesn't mean we have to question every single thing in the world every minute of the day. It just means that we are humble enough to acknowledge how little we actually know. Nearly every change in history came about because someone questioned some time-honored belief or tradition and in doing so revealed a new truth, a new way of doing things, or a new standard for ethical and moral behavior. Just so, a commitment to staying open in our own individual lives can lead us to new personal truths, truths that we will hopefully, for the sake of our growth, remain open to questioning. :o)
