Outrageous Requests

“Great things are only possible with outrageous requests.”-Thea Alexander

This morning I woke up considering what it is I would be sharing in the Bliss Blog today and a thought crossed my mind, that had been lingering for the past few days. What is it that I settle for, rather than asking for what I really want?  Do I usually only request what I am fairly certain I can receive, rather than risking hearing ‘no’?  Yup, there are many times that I play it safe and go for what seems attainable. What if I could truly dive into the Universal Pool and splash about in the uncertainty and simply be brave in asking for what I desire? And as things go, the Source responded with the message I most needed to hear. Although I had never read this quote, attributed to one of my favorite writers, it was the perfect answer to my query. Thea Alexander is the author of a pivotal book in my metaphysical journey. 2150 A.D. is the allegorical Hero’s Journey of Jon Lake; Ph.D student in the 1960’s whose service in Viet Nam cost him his leg. He shares an apartment with his best friend Karl Johnson who acts as a guardian angel of sorts and the skeptical mind that challenges Jon’s new perceptions that are awakened while, paradoxically, Jon is asleep. In his dream state, Jon travels to the year 2150 in which the people he initially encounters seem unattainably super human, endowed with exquisite beauty that reflect their inner divinity, possessing abilities that go far beyond his beliefs of what he is capable of achieving. He is brought there in order to become a greater force for good and to heal his own wounded places. What he discovers is that within him and within all of us, lie the seeds of magnificence. The community is referred to as The Macro Society that evolves following the Earth Changes that we have been hearing about for so many years. It is a natural outgrowth of the acknowledgment of what we were meant to be.  Jon has discovered that he can remain in that time period so long as he develops some of those same abilities as his ‘classmates’, with the added bonus that he will be re-united with his soul mate. I don’t want to give away too much of the story, but suffice it to say that it has many twists and turns and is a reflection of how I endeavor to live. The characters share this belief as expressed below and it seems to me to be a good guide for living, regardless of the era.

 

The Macro Creed

I Believe in the Macrocosmic oneness of all, and in myself as a perfectly functioning aspect of that Macrocosm. I Believe that I and only I have the honor and the power to determine, to design and to alter whatever my daily life contains, for it is the result of my own thoughts. I Believe that there are as many paths as there are people to walk them, and that each person is the best judge of which path they will walk at any given time. I seek the adventure of interaction with others knowing it is the classroom of my evolution. I joyously receive this and everyday knowing it is the canvas upon which I am painting my life.

Back to the outrageous request concept;  keep in mind that outrageous doesn’t mean ridiculous or impossible, just heart and mind stretch-y….what would you ask for if you knew that it would stretch your comfort zones, whether or not you received it?

My outrageous request list includes:

Meeting and growing a relationship with a Life Partner this  calendar year

Travelling to Hawaii  and Ireland on vacation

Workshops and classes that I teach, filled to capacity every time

Speaking at conferences

Writing for whatever publications I choose

Interviewing Oprah and Ellen

Publishing another book

Chapters included in Chicken Soup For The Soul books

Having my current Bliss Mistress book picked up by a major publisher

Reaching people worldwide with the message that they deserve to live their bliss FULL OUT!

In conversation with my flight attendant friend Jewelee Landis, about whom I have written many times over the years, we were musing about life being like a smoothie. She, like most of us, wears many hats.  Hers- wife, mom, daughter, granddaughter,  friend, doggy and kitty mom and now grandmom to n
