Fantasy Life Bowl
The problem with fantasy is the greatest gift of fantasy; it prevents us from living in the present moment. But the present now is different from the present then, and while it is true that in the present, people will get sick, leave and die, it is also true that the present is where hearts are opened and love enters. – Geneen Roth
Geneen Roth really has got something there doesn’t she? Too bad the temptation to pull a Walter Mitty is just oh so very tempting. Especially at those times when you feel as though you are in the wrong life lane and things appear to be falling apart. The thing is… consider for a moment that falling apart is a temporary perception and falling together is really what’s shakin.’ To quote Jerry Lee there may be a whole lotta shakin’ goin’ on! Because sometimes it takes a spiritual earthquake to make the changes that must be made for your life’s purpose to be expressed.
To tarry in the past or future will ease the stress of the moment but it isn’t where the light shines.
It shines in this moment.
It shines brightly when your purpose is alive and well.
Our lives either bring us closer to our hearts and our heart’s purpose or takes us farther away.
When we live in a fantasy because the truth is either painful or terribly boring we run the risk of losing our dearest resource – our open and ready heart that is there to receive the love we are looking for. And make no mistake; love is the only thing we are looking for.
This love may come to us cleverly disguised.
LOVE may walk in the door as a new song that haunts you in the middle of the night until you write it down and sing it out loud. It may be an old friend that appears out of nowhere to remind you of who you really are. It may be a new, wonder-filled relationship with someone you would never have looked at twice a year ago. Could be a place to live that offers you comfort and peace.
If you are caught up in an addiction or fantasy distraction you may be missing out bigtime.
Ask yourself if what you are doing, saying, being, living, is where your true love lies? If the answer is no? Do whatever you have to do to get your head out of the clouds and plant your feet firmly in the present. The present where the gift of love lives.
Your life will thank you.
We send… Love, Light and Oceans of Bliss for the Highest Good of All.
And so it is!
