Bend with the wind

The seasons have changed from Spring to Summer and now we are in Fall since my last blog entry. Either I was too busy or not busy enough to write.

2010 has been an interesting year... most interesting. Mostly challenging. Like most people- especially in California where unemployment is over 12%, I have been scrambling to make ends meet. The good news is that I have managed to keep my life a float with a lot of hustle and faith.

In order not to loose my mind I have to walk in faith. I have to hold close the fact that the Universal Spirit is conspiring for me and that there is always enough. Things look a little different then they did before. Things are changing and we have to break old patterns- bend with the wind.

There have been times this year when I didn't have work lined up and paying next month's rent was a complete mystery to me. But what I have learned through other tough times in my life is that I am in the "Action Dept" and God is in the "Results Dept".

(When I mention God I mean a Universal Spirit- a power not attached to any religious sect... I say this because I know so many people run when they hear God or Jesus... I know I get a little nervous.)

So when I show up each day and do what is in front of me and be of service to others when ever possible and be thankful for what I do have- I am working in the Action Dept. This means I have to reside in the moment. Stay in today. Keeping fear out... can I do anything about it right now? yes- then take those steps. no- then let it go.

It's all a work in progress... and I am grateful for what I have today.
