Infinite Patience

superyou

In preparation for an interview I am doing next week with author and Unity Minister, Justin Epstein for my radio show It’s All About Relationships, I found myself diving into the book Super You with what I imagine has intentionally designed Superman colors on the cover. With a similar spiritual background….Judaism that expanded into an interfaith flavor, I was nodding along to everything he was saying.  From the opening pages, he speaks about what I think of as ‘cosmic coincidence’; that unexpected, but always welcomed sense of being at the right place, at the right time, doing precisely what we are supposed be doing with the people we call into our lives.

So, what is this concept of Super You?  Justin explains it in this way; it is “the Spiritual Self, the place within where God is expressed as you.  Your Spiritual Self is an expression of God like a wave is an expression of the ocean.” When I am aware of that, I am in the flow, rather than getting knocked on my butt by a tidal wave.

The timing of this could not have been more perfect, as I have moved through much of what he speaks about throughout this easy page turner.  As a recovering Type A overachiever, I would often think that I was responsible for doing it all myself, from the creation of an idea to the effort involved in making it so, to seeing it come to fruition.  In reality, I am a partner with the God of My Understanding as we co-create. I have been letting go and surrendering outcome once I have done the seed planting and garden weeding.

One of Justin’s mentors was beloved Unity Minister Eric Butterworth who incorporated what he called Divine Indifference with which he set intention and then allowed God to work through him. Not an easy task for me at times. He then goes on to quote A Course in Miracles “Infinite patience produces immediate results.” As paradoxical as it sounds, I have found that to be so as well, as evidenced by the beautiful garden that has recently sprung up.

This past winter, I had grown impatient with the pace that my life was going. “Not fast enough, not successful enough,” was the litany running through my head. With the input from wise friends and Divine Guidance, I am astonished at how all that I have dreamed about is now showing up. I am writing this entry in a hotel in Harrisburg where I am staying before teaching at a recovery conference tomorrow on one of my favorite topics: Co-dependence. Welcoming in new people and experiences. Met today with someone I had interviewed recently who I sense will become a new friend.  I have written several articles in the past few days that have been flying through me at the speed of sound and light combined. I feel like my Super You brain is supercharged!

Don't Give Up
As I am in the middle of the fifth decade of my life, the world has become a patchwork quilt of experiences. In the last 55 years, I have splashed in puddles of joy and gasped for air while feeling like I was drowning in sorrow. I have been clutched by fear and basked in light. Through it all, I hav

Heaven On Earth
    "Imagine, will you....Heaven On Earth For Real." These are the words that are on my friend Tambra Harck's Facebook page. I think about it a lot since I believe that we create our own vision/version in our vivid imaginations. One of my favorite songs on the topic, sung by Ma

With An Open Hand
  When you consider all of the things that you desire; from relationships to abundance, from faith to freedom, from possessions to passion, how do you hold them?  What I mean by that is this:  do you hold them with a closed fist; grasping, clinging as if for dear life or can you let go a b

The Art of Surrender
On Saturday, I began my day in retrospective musing. Listening to Ellis Paul singing Dragonfly  on Sleepy Hollow  to greet the sun. Was reading earlier entries down my time line on Facebook and marveled at how far I have come since everything changed with the 'cardiac event' on June 12th. It was o
