Relax and suck it up

One of my favorite things as a kid was using crazy straws. Remember those?

No matter what drink it was, stick a crazy straw in it and it instantly became fun.   Ah, life before the internet…

crazy straw

Are you still using one daily?  NO?  Maybe we should, they have so much to teach us.  Crazy straws want to remind us:

  1. BE AWARE -Don’t use yesterday’s straw!!    Don’t let yesterday’s straw ruin or taint today’s drink!  Yesterday’s (or last year’s) residue will only ruin a perfectly great, new daily flavor!   Don’t waste your time trying to clean it all out thinking about how it got gunked up –  just get a new one every morning when you wake up!   New day = New flavor
  2. Sometimes it’s going up, sometimes down, sometimes even sideways, and sometimes you can’t even see where or what direction it’s going, don’t sweat it. AND DON’T QUIT!  That’s life. It’s all in line with a bigger plan. It’ll arrive.
  3.  Decide what YOU want to drink before you settle on something that someone else just offers you.  Once you start drawing or sucking it, you’ll get it- but by then it’s too late to change flavors, to say “Woops, I didn’t really want that!”  What are you dunking your straw into today?
  4. Don’t compare your drink and how quickly you’re getting it, with anyone else!  Find your own speed that’s comfortable, you don’t want to pass out, or drink too quickly, you don’t want a Brain Freeze after all!

Keep your momentum going and you’ll get Whatever YOU DECIDE to drink.  First thing in the Morning, get yourself a NEW straw for your life, and stick it into something clean and nourishing like Universal Goodness, Love, Peace, Happy Thoughts and Knowing that whatever you draw in today, will be best for you.

My deepest wish for you my friend is that you enjoy your drinking of Life. Enjoy all the loops you’ll take.   KNOW that it’s All Good, even when you seem to be going up, down, sideways, or loopty loops.    No doubt, the upcoming year will provide all those choices.

Here’s a little secret for you– the drink never really ends anyway, so don’t worry about it.  ENJOY.

Intention and The Finger

Think back.  Did you know how you were going to meet that special person  who added so much to your life?   Did you specifically know how or when you were going to get the job or the house that you have right now?   Chances are you didn’t.

Oh sure, there were lots, even years, of action – but the final meeting up was quite “co-incidental”.  Like playing a game of chess, or any game, you rarely know the full consequences of any particular move that you make right now.  So, don’t “take score” TOO SOON!!

lighting match, momentum and intentionA Match in a matchbox, has an Intention to create a flame. It doesn’t know Where or What surface it will be struck upon to light it. It doesn’t understand about the Oxygen needed for it.  It can’t control when or where the fingers will be that are needed for the striking of it.  It can only offer its Intent. When conditions are right, a flame will be created.

We can only focus on our Intent. When the time is right, our Oxygen, , and Fingers for striking will show up. We can not predict or force any of those.  Just as we didn’t know how we would end up meeting our pets or mates, or getting (or losing) that last job.  Conditions will manifest, when the time is right.   

Timing  AH, the nasty little bugger in the issue.  Whose timing?     I WANT IT NOW!

If the Universe were to TRY to keep up with what YOU THOUGHT was the “RIGHT” timing, it would throw complete chaos into a perfectly running system.  We think we REALLY want something – BUT give us 20 minutes, or a day, or a month, and we’ve already changed our perspective, or altogether moved on to something else.

The Universe only does what We should do –  focus on IT’S Intent. IT’s been here a lot longer than any of us.  It holds Galaxies together!  It made sure YOU were the winning sperm and egg out of millions, didn’t it!!   IT  knows when conditions are best for ALL parties involved!

So don’t take score too soon.  Be Persistent, Patient and Positive!  OWN your Intention.

There are many fingers and striking surfaces that you are not even aware of, that will come into play. Just as they have in the past.

And remember, YOU also are a Finger.  You also, are someone’s Oxygen that they don’t even know about yet!     You are a gift, an answer, to their Intentions as well.

You have that in YOU!   Go light a fire!
