It never fails to amaze me the ways in which the minutiae of life is metaphor for much larger, more powerful concepts. I believe this is the path to success in using things like the law of attraction. We figure out the big picture by looking closely at the small one.
I learned another cosmic lesson today at my job. A customer asked me for something expecting to be told no and when I found the thing he was looking for, he was unprepared to pay for it. No big deal, it happens a lot in that job, but today it hit me like a ton of bricks. If I ask the universe for something, I must be ready to receive it. And I’m not sure I have been as ready as I need to be. This is incentive to focus and work harder and get my life in order as much as possible. Luck happens to those who are diligent and prepared.
You can be diligent and still be unprepared. And then when life tries to offer you what you have asked for, you have no way to receive it. Case in point, the customer from earlier. He wasn’t prepared to be told yes, he prepared himself to be told no. Had he prepared to hear yes, he would have talked to all the people he needed to talk to and had his credit card in hand before calling.
I need to have my credit card in hand before I make this next call to the universe.
Sometimes it is necessary to make room for new people and things in life. I’m a minimalist, I don’t collect anything. Not people, not things. But, if in a symbolic act of spaciousness I need to clear out some room for something new, I’m willing to do that.
It’s good to get rid of stuff you don’t need. Whether it be things, people, or thoughts. If it does not serve the greater good, bless it and let it go.
If I want the person I love to love me back, I need to be someone he can love. Which means I need to understand what is important to him and figure out if those things can be important to me too. It’s one thing to be in love with someone, it’s another thing entirely to be good for that person. We must fulfill the role that creates the greatest good in the world. Sometimes that role is romantic, sometimes it’s platonic.
I find it difficult to continue this without gushing a little. I just really believe when you find the person whom you recognize to be the nicest person you have ever met–the one that becomes instant best friend–and that person is attractive looking to you…marry them! For crying out loud, just marry them already! If two soul mates meet and they are both single and attractive, smart, compassionate, etc., it is a travesty if they do not make that connection.
I cannot get my friend out of my head. Whenever I see him I feel like I am walking on a cloud for hours and days afterward. I do come back to earth eventually, but it’s like drugs. When I am around him I feel like I automatically become a better person. In case you’re wondering, that was the gushing bit I referred to before.
Looking forward to things falling into place perfectly.
Is it wrong of me to notice places that would make a lovely venue for a simple, elegant wedding?
