[success]It is a terrible thing to see and have no vision. ~ Helen Keller[/success] What was your vision for the day?  Did you decide beforehand you you’d feel when the day was over? Were you following your dreams? Did you ask yourself what you wanted to do, or what you needed to do?  And did you choose? Anything. Or did you wander from task to task, putting some off here, or wanting to get another just perfect? Did you have any sense of purpose today? I know I fall short here…more often than I care to admit. Working on it. I mean well, but there are times when my follow through is less than stellar. Two things stand in my way.  Even though I’ve begun to imagine it being other than this in my life, the reality hasn’t yet caught up with how it’s working out in my mind’s eye. So…

I’m away from the ranch (we don’t really have a ranch) and feeling pretty loosey goosey.  So in honour of that I have a few questions for you, but I think I’ll begin with a statement.  Told you I was loosey goosey. What if I told you that you were the greatest form of creation on the planet.  Yep, I’m talking about you.  You, my dahlings, are God’s highest form of creation.  You are absolutely one hundred percent, brilliantly uniquely you. No-one, and I’m talking seriously, no-one will ever equal you.  You have an enormous power within and you truly can experience whatever life you choose for yourself. But.  There’s always a but isn’t there?  But, is that how you see yourself? Who in the world do you think you are? Ever heard that before? Do you recognize yourself as a magnificent, amazing being? Mmmm probably not, but it really…

We all remember the eureka moment of Archimedes, don’t we?  The one where he got into a bath that was way too full and the water spilled over the sides onto his perfectly clean tiled floor?  Okay I just made that last bit up because as a retired ‘neat freak’ I probably would have been more focused on the oh heck moment – what about the floor I’ve just cleaned, as opposed to the magical eureka moment of blinding clarity about measuring volume or some such. I know, I know, I’m a philistine. However, I had my own euraka moment the other day.  More of a eurekarrgh moment in my case, and no I wasn’t naked in my bath and most definitely not ready to go running through the streets starkers…too many jiggly bits.  Roman Baths in England Anyhoo, I was going through my list of current desires…big and small,…

Time was when a compliment would embarrass me.  I felt uncomfortable and didn’t really know how to respond, so I mumbled and blushed and stuttered something…anything.  It wasn’t in me to be able to say a simple thank you and move on.  Actually, it was worse than that.  A compliment on my outfit, or hair would lead to mutterings about this old thing, or my hair just turned out this way by accident. A compliment on a kind act would be met with a shrug of the shoulders and it was nothing.  Anything but a genuine acknowledgement of thanks.  What’s with that?  Every compliment had to be deflected in some way…the attention moved somewhere else.  I didn’t, couldn’t, allow myself to be nourished by a kind word. I was not a good receiver. Now if the shoe was on the other foot…well I was pretty good at that.  I could…

Today, driving along in my ‘rolling university’ I was listening to a well respected lecturer saying that we are not what we have and we are not what we do.  Heavens to Betsy…not that I’d argue with such a well loved man…oh what the heck, who am I kidding…I would, and I will. In the grand scheme of things, looking at the big picture, the general consensus would be that he does have a point.  We are much greater and so much more powerful than we give ourselves credit for, on top of which we have been given  a remarkable gift…that of changing our mind about who we are.  You know the old saying…change your mind, change your life, or Biblically speaking “be you transformed by the renewing of your mind”. Whatever we can imagine, we can realize.  Now isn’t that AMAZING.  One might say we’re having a change of…
