Obstacles; a New Understanding

I am, as we speak, writing what might just be the book of my life. I am as madly in love with this novel as I’ve been with few before. I can think of 3 out of 60 some-odd titles. And that, by the way, is why you haven’t heard from me in a while. I have been obsessed with this story.

Back on topic. I’m not going to list them. I’m actively trying to let go of them, so why on earth would I hold them in place by focusing on them? Bad things happened, and then more bad things happened.

And then I received a gentle reminder in meditation. It’s the secret of the cosmos. It’s the key to all that is. This is it, this is everything.

Just focus on feeling good right now.

It doesn’t matter where my attention was, or what knocked me off course. All that matters is where my vibe is right now. If I turn the channel, and all that bad stuff will just fall away. So instead of staying tuned where I am while reviewing all my recent play lists, I am turning the channel.

And as soon as I decided to do that, I received another little message.

Those were not roadblocks. They were speedbumps.

And I understood something I hadn’t before.

When you are more aligned than not, and leading a pretty upbeat life, holding your vibe at a
