OK, now? Now. May I have it now? How about now? Yes, now. As in this-very-bloody-minute-damn it-NOW. You know, old school now. Not New Age airy-faery now. Like 1980’s I really give a care whether it is in the highest good or not NOW.
I mean really!
As evolving humans we make semi-precious plans to have this. Do that. Be here. Go there. It doesn’t appear to be unreasonable at the time we dream the dream. We are soon turning the corner on the first decade of the new millennium. What do we have to show for it?
We have now.
Granted, maybe not the now we thought we would have. But take heart. Here’s the dealio. So what if it is taking longer to BE HERE NOW. I mean the here you wanted to be now by now. (This is becoming tedious isn’t it?) Life, obviously, got in the way of your plans. Welcome to the Land Of The Truly Living! I know it is muy fashionable to work the Law Of Attraction to within an inch of its charismatic life. To believe we can manifest the Trump fortune overnight. Deny the fact that we have ever had a negative thought or feeling. Fashionable… to be some kind of spiritual Stepford Wife (or Hub’s) flashing those veneer pearlies through the storm.
Hey, I get it. I was in show business remember?
I know all about the power of illusion. To this day I will only allow George Hurrell-esque black & white pix with a dark velvet background to be taken of me. None of that casual, candid, digital stuff por moi. And if I am having a fat attack I run from the camera altogether!
But the truth of the matter is as follows. For we “wee-people” the average wise-acre with an attitude problem? The ones with rent/mortgages, orthodontists, and corn flakes to pay for? It may just take us a minute or two more to move our too tired butts to the beat of the music. That’s fine by me. (I always was a behind the beat N’awlins kinda gal.)
The point is, don’t despair.
Just because your sister was able to drop the extra 30 lbs she’s been courting since her 1st born. Just because your best friend is marrying her “soulmate” for the 3rd time. Just because everyone in your book/bowling club managed to go to Paris this year. Just because your business is running an all time Holiday $$$ lowly-low-low?
You can still do what you intended to do all along.
Make minor adjustments and forgive yourself for all the “shoulda” that should have happened had you been punching a clock.
What you say you want and what you have are not yet aligned.
The Divine has been holding you and your “dreams” in safe-keeping all this time.
You will have “it all” whatever “it all” is to you as soon as you are able. Able to appreciate it. Able to take care of it. Able to not kill yourself trying to enjoy it. “It all” is still yours.
2010 looms large and fast. Make your intentions known. Write them down. Do your vision boards and vision work of course. Fully understand that life itself has its own vision.
As long as you have enjoyed a little more than 60% of the ride so far you are doin’ alright! Could it be better? Sure. Do you have some decisions to make about who you need to be to be to make it better. Yup! Can you do it? Yes, you can. I know you can.
And you know you can.
Will you do what must be done?
Don’t break your heart with false promises. Be flexible. And leave the rest to heaven.
You “don need no stinking guru!”
You need to do what you do with grace and humor. Embrace ” the now” with the spirit of generosity, grace and humor affords. It is a very dignified way of being when you think about it.
Even we “wee-people” can manage it with considerable panache.
Sending… Love, Light and Oceans of Bliss for the Highest Good of All.
And so it is!
