Day 113 – Life Is A Lovely Thing

April 2, 2012

Again, so many different thoughts in my head. I’m going to write in the blog every day this week. I’ve been having a lot of insights lately. Insight and change are not the same thing, I know, and so, this week I’d like to focus on the step in between insight and change, action.

I’m sitting in someone else’s apartment right now, a nice apartment on a nice side of town that an associate has let me stay in while he is out of town. A wonderful change of pace, peace and quiet, and beautiful scenery. On my right is a list of about thirteen things that I would like to accomplish by the end of the week, most of them final steps concerning my professional, financial and romantic life.

The thought of completing the list frightens me, which is perhaps why the list has been lingering for so long.

Today is a new day, though, and in it there are endless possibilities. My heart feels so alive. I can physically feel it expanding, like when a new tooth comes in. We are not guaranteed for ever. My time on Earth could end any day. Every day is a blessing, and I am thankful to know this day, the day when my conscience is clear. The day when my mind is free enough to actually notice the roses. The day when I know that there are no impossibilities.

It’s like life has opened up. I’m going to do an experiment in action this week, and I’d like to let you know how it turns out. From what I have been learning and reading, once a clear and genuine intention has been set to live a certain way, and it is reinforced with consistent action, life changes. Things change. We change.

Today I realize that fear is just that: fear. Not life. Just a little part of it. It usually doesn’t kill you. Maybe it makes your heart beat a little faster or gives you a headache or a stomach ache for a while. Maybe you have to take a deeper breath. But then you expand. You expand. Your heart aches and then it’s open. It’s such a lovely thing, this life. Action and momentum are lovely things. Genuine smiles, unencumbered conversations, opportunities for expression, spiritual connectivity, nourishing food, sweet smells… These are all lovely things.

We get to have them. We get to share them. We get to have these brand new days where we can say sorry and thank you and I love you to anyone and it won’t kill us. we get to write lists, finish projects, apply for new opportunities, clean our houses, move around and grow. We get to release whatever burdens we have been carrying. We can start the process off on any given day. We are so lucky. This is the day that the Lord hath created. Let us rejoice…
