Hiding In Plain Sight

 

Last night I was speaking with my talented singer songwriter friend Robin Renee and found myself musing about a phenom that sometimes feels like it plagues me, or at the very least is a source of frustration. I call it the ‘not there yet.’ Remember when you were a kid, riding in the back seat of the car and you persistently would ask your parents, “Are we there yet?” I know I did it. My cousin Billy used to ask my Aunt Sue “How more longer?”  It sounds cute when I think about it, but now, it feels obnoxious when I apply it to my impatience with the process from conception to manna-festation of what I REALLY REALLY want. I asked her if she wonders why she isn’t more well known and that since her skyrocket to world wide fame hasn’t occurred yet, did she doubt that it still would?  I go through that experience myself when I question my own not quite meteoric rise to be a ‘mover and shaker’ of the caliber that I desire, who makes a difference on a global scale. I also wonder about this whole calling in The One relationship dynamic. There are times when no matter how focused I am on bringing him into my life and then paradoxically, how necessarily I release it to Divine Timing, as with everything else I have ever invited and subsequently saw coming to fruition, I still have my doubts. And I teach this stuff!  It’s like the kid’s game where you are looking for a hidden object and your friends tell you “You’re getting warmer.”  or “You’re getting colder.” until you eventually find what you are looking for. Sometimes it is hiding in plain sight. I wonder if everything we desire is like that and is waiting for us to open our hearts and eyes to take in what it is we most cherish.

When I roll back the clock, I can list hundreds if not thousands of amazing creations that came to me by serendipity or Divine Design. And for that I count myself immensely grateful.

Pass It Onword
Back in November, as I was meandering the aisles at the Mind Body Spirit Expo in King of Prussia, PA, I came to a booth at which two women were beaming beatifically. In front of them was a table of simple wares. Stones engraved with a word-  gratitude, strength, inspire, forgive, and kindness, we

How We Grieve
  "When my Guru died in 1973, I assumed that because of the important part he played in my life, and the love I felt for him, I would be inundated with grief. Surprisingly, I was not. In time, I came to realize why. He and I were so well established in Soul love that, in the years since he l

Recovering Human Doing
Lounging in bed, surrounded by lots of pillows and snuggled under quilts as I am typing these words. It is a drowsy, dozy Sunday morning. The radio is playing easing into my day tunes.  My standard weekend fare begins with Sleepy Hollow on WXPN which is a Philly based member supported Public Radio
