“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat.
“I don’t much care where–” said Alice.
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat.
“–so long as I get SOMEWHERE,” Alice added as an explanation.
“Oh, you’re sure to do that,” said the Cat, “if you only walk long enough.”-Lewis Carroll

I am writing this on July 5, 2013 for posterity. The woman who is typing these words has lived more than 54 years on this planet, this time around and since she believes in reincarnation, likely eons more in a different form. She has loved and lost, stretched and shrunk, leapt and lurched, cowered in fear and stood center stage courageously. She can be laser focused or easily distracted by a shiny thought.  She can be serious and silly. She can celebrate the successes of others and envy them. She can be patient and petulant. She can be judgmental and understanding. Such a dichotomy she faces each time she steps out on the road. There are times when   she has not a clue which direction to turn. Her inner compass sometimes spins wildly, sending her scurrying to make a course correction.

Like everyone reading this she is Divinely Human and Humanly Divine.

Sound familiar?

My intention is to consciously choose where to go, by  noticing where my feet are planted, where I want to end up and then take the first step to get myself there. The tricky thing for me has to do with time and deadlines. If I knew, really KNEW that it didn’t matter how long it took to reach a destination, but that I needed to keep taking the steps, resting when called on, moving ahead when able and willing, then I would likely feel a greater sense of peace about it all. It took 20 years to manna-fest the interview with His Holiness the Dalai Lama in 2008, from idea to actuality. When it finally happened, did  I complain that it took so long?  Nope, I reveled in the reality of it. I wonder sometimes if our ‘destiny’ is patiently waiting for us to show up where it is. Kind of like a stage set that wants us to step on to it so it can fulfill its purpose. That can be around a relationship, money, career, creative outlets, health, home….

This is what I am programming into my inner GPS today:

Professional dream into reality desires today- since I can ask for them (and so can you)…  have my book picked up by a major publisher ( it was self published originally), write for O magazine, interview Oprah and Ellen (not just be inter…viewed BY them), write for HuffPo, have my stories published in Chicken Soup For The Soul, do a TEDtalk, speak at world wide conferences on BYOB (Be Your Own Bliss) in whatever form that takes. Continue to be a positive change agent, showing folks that they can live ridiculously amazing lives and be a greater force for good in the world. Thank you in advance, Universe for these coming to be. And for guiding my feet along the path~

Any Road

 

Give me that plenty of that guitar.
But I’ve been traveling on a boat and a plane

In a car on a bike with a bus and a train

Traveling there, traveling here

Everywhere in every gear
But oh Lord we pay the price

With the spin of the wheel with the roll of the dice

Ah yeah you pay your fare

And if you don’t know where you’re going

Any road will take you there
And I’ve been traveling through the dirt and the grime

From the past to the future through the space and the time

Traveling deep beneath the waves

In watery grottoes and mountainous caves

But oh Lord we’ve got to fight

With the thoughts in the head with the dark and the light

No use to stop and stare

And if you don’t know where you’re going

Any road will take you there
You may not know where you came from

May not know who you are

May not have even wondered

How you got this far

I’ve been traveling on a wing and a prayer

By the skin of my teeth, by the breadth of a hair

Traveling where the four winds blow

With the sun on my face, in the ice and the snow
But oooeeee it’s a game

Sometimes you’re cool, sometimes you’re lame

Ah yeah it’s somewhere

And if you don’t know where you’re going

Any road will take you there
But oh Lord we pay the price

With the spin of the wheel with the roll of the dice

Ah yeah you pay your fare

And if you don’t know where you’re going

Any road will take you there
I keep traveling around the bend

There was no beginning, there is no end

It wasn’t born and never dies

There are no edges, there is no sides
Oh yeah you just don’t win

It’s so far out, the way out is in

Bow to God and call him Sir

But if you don’t know where you’re going

Any road will take you there And if you don’t know where you’re going

Any road will take you there

If you don’t know where you’re going

Any road will take you there
(Yeah hey! Ah ee ah! Ah he ah!)
