What can I say? 2

Yesterday I realized, with a lot help from the animals, that I did not mention them in my post on the 25th.  They reminded me how our upsets affect them and how vulnerable they are.  I have written about this in past posts. 

In the post on the 25th when I said “And how I am does have an effect on everything around me.”  I should have mentioned animals specifically in the everything.

Me remembering I do affect the animals around me, with how I am, will help me to be more aware of what I am doing right now.  It makes it less general and more real and closer to me.  It is not something out there, it is right here.

I am glad they brought this to my attention as it is important and I feel very foolish for forgetting to include them.  Maybe it is better this way as they get there own post. 

They remind me frequently what a stupid human I am.  With them riding herd on me I don’t have to worry about getting a big head.  Thanks guys. 

What can I say?

For weeks there has been so much rolling around in my head, I could not figure out where to start, what to write.  So that is why it has been awhile since I have written.

To say the least it is a wild ride right now.  I have asked myself did I really sign up for this?  Yeah I did.  If I am learning anything, it is I am responsible for my life. Which means my thoughts, actions, and what comes out of my mouth. 

What does that have to do with what is going on? 

I am blessed I get to talk to people from all over the country.  What I am hearing is quite a bit of upset.  I listen.  Then I share the decisions I am making. 

I asked myself the question, can I change what happened in the big picture? No I can’t. If I can’t affect the big picture where does that leave me?  It leaves me with the responsibility of choosing how I respond to what happened.  I realized if I choose to be upset then I am putting a negative vibration into the collective. Does that help anything? No. 

I can only make choices for myself and those choices have an effect on the rest of the world.  My being upset puts a negative out.  My being calm, peaceful is a positive out.   I am learning it is that simple.  In each moment I get to choose how I am.  And how I am does have an effect on everything around me and beyond. 

Throw a pebble onto the surface of a calm pond and ripples flow out from where the pebble went in.  That’s me.  I create ripples with how I am.  Those ripples go out and touch everything around me 

I believe the Divine knows what it is doing.  If I take my attention off the big picture and place it on my picture, that is the best I can do.  I am doing my part.  The rest is out of my control.  Thank God.  It is so simple when I allow me to Be.
