Cracked

Church Bell Swinging

 

“Ring the bells that still can ring. Forget your perfect offering. There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in” – Leonard Cohen

Like many of you who are reading this entry, I want things in my life to feel phenomenal and flow effortlessly. At the moment, it doesn’t feel quite like it.  Throughout the day,  I have been consulting with my friend Mike Chadwick who is a computer whiz about my right livelihood tool, my link to the world, a source of education and entertainment, that was reluctant to start this morning. Once it did, then something else conked out too. I took it to Best Buy from whence it came and a very nice and quite capable young man named Zach, gave it a once over and suggested something to repair it which I purchased from them. As I am writing this, the new program is humming along quite nicely, thank you very much and along with it, its hardware host and its owner.

In the past few weeks, glitches have been occurring in what I would like to be a seamless, crackless existence. First I lost my iphone (and it was returned unharmed after camping out overnight in the bushes in my front yard) and then I misplaced my credit/debit card (it too is being replaced after the original was canceled) Then clients who had scheduled appointments at my counseling job (like the one I had now) canceled or didn’t show. One person I spoke with recently feels that she is addicted to complaining and doesn’t know how to stop it. She sees it as more of an issue than the substance abuse for which she is being treated. It is a wake up call for me to be aware of places where I am more focused on problem solving than solution finding. I would rather be in the latter state. I’ve needed to postpone workshops because of scheduling snafus for participants. In the face of all this, I am doing what I suggest clients and students do, since I believe we teach what we need to learn AND I practice what I preach the majority of the time. I am taking slow, easy, deep breaths, taking care of the practical components of what needs to be handled and then surrendering it to the Cosmic Tech Support Team. I know that I am always protected and held safely, so that no amount of ‘mal-ware’ can ultimately do me harm personally. I am allowing the Light from within and above to stream up and out, in and all around. I am trusting that the Highest Good outcome will prevail. I know that my computer and I are Higher Powered.

The Now What Club
This morning, I joined two dear friends for brunch at Mal's Diner in Skippack, PA.  After a heart-healthy workout in cardiac rehab, I had a heart- happy  meal of egg whites, spinach (no cheese), fresh fruit instead of home fries and dry (no butter) whole grain toast. Yvonne Kaye has been my mentor

Enjoy Every Moment
Feeling emotionally raw at the moment, having just returned from a day of honoring my friend Delane Lipka. I had written about another extraordinary day in a previous Beliefnet article called In the Garden of Eden that described a gathering of kindred spirits that had been organized by Delane. For d

Cardia-versary
This morning marks 3 months since I experienced the kind of pain that cracks you open and has you revealing the emotional viscera that had long lay dormant. Literally at this moment, I was captured by the symptoms of a heart attack- searing heart burn pain, jaw tightness and wringing wet sweats. I s

Cosmic Coincidence
My definition of cosmic coincidence are those events that have me shaking my head in bewildered awe, asking "What are the chances that such a thing could happen?"  My answer is always the same. "100%, since it occurred." It is that encounter with just the right person, hearing a song on the radio r

Transformation Takes Determination
As I was on my daily walk today, decked out in my navy blue t-shirt with the word TRANSFORM scripted on the front of it, it occurred to me that if I want to transform any aspect of my life, there are several essential ingredients. 1-Quoting Joe Jackson "You can't get what you want, til you know
