My Cup Runneth Over

 

This morning, on the way into work, I stopped to get a cup of chai. I carried it up to the counter to pay for it and had the precognitive  experience of seeing myself doing exactly what I was about to do a moment later…spilling it on the counter. Kind of like seeing yourself locking your keys in the car right before you do it, but doing it anyway. My initial reaction was to think of myself as being careless or clumsy and I pulled myself back from that precipice, because I knew it could set the tone for the rest of my day and I wasn’t goin’ there. Instead, I took a deep breath, asked the woman behind the counter for something to clean up the mess and then wiped it up. She told me I could go back and refill my cup after I had paid for it. I walked back to the machine, and pushed the button. This time, it didn’t stop as I had expected it to and it flowed over the edge. Being the ‘queen of re-frame’, my next thought was, “Oh, my cup runneth over.” and I decided that THIS would set the tone for my day and so it did.

As I went about the next 12 hours, I found myself facing challenges and then leaping over the hurdles. I kept coming back to the thought that became my mantra. Funny, isn’t it, how we are such powerful creators of our own experience. Having little or no control over circumstance , I am ALWAYS at choice about how I embrace or reject what I am handed. It is up to me whether I view the cup as half full, half empty or full to overflowing.

Tonight as I was heading for a book signing event, at a gathering place called The Zen Den  in Doylestown, PA (perfect for the experience I am describing);  I set intention as I always do, to find an ‘Uncle Jimmy parking spot’. My uncle was our family parking angel and would always find the perfect spot. I invoked my mojo and after driving around the same block 4 or 5 times, as I was pulling into the parking lot of my destination, a spot opened up right by the front door. It took driving around for the spot to be available, since it wasn’t open the first time I drove through. A lesson in patience and trust that I am always at the right place at the right time.

During the presentation, I was joined by people who live that truth as well, in gratitude for the overflow, miracle manna-festation, knowing that they will see it when they believe it. I left a few hours ago, feeling deeply satisfied and gratified for a day filled to capacity and then some, with love and support, color and juice, passion and purpose.

Where in your life does your cup run over?  Where would you most like it to do so?

    Edie,

    Once again you have changed things up, taken the common experience and have created a new more fulfilling behavior out of something that could have cause your whole day to be a spill, instead created a spill over, a flow of positive, a flow of fullness…

    “Where in your life does your cup run over? Where would you most like it to do so?”

    I think my life cup does run over but I don’t always see the choices.
    (when I went to answer this question my mind such shut down, refused to make any coherent sense…))

    I am Love, Jeff

    Jeff:

    So glad this touched you. I value your insights and responses to my tappings and typings. Yup, it is so easy to let life’s waves either wash over me or knock me on my tush. Glad to ride the waves~
