I wanted to go to do a drive from Sequoia Forest to Seattle, but Universe says no. I’ve been on the phone with Travelocity trying to book it for over a week now and no matter what, they will just not finish the processing. At first, I took this as they were just being straight up shady. Today and tonight, I’m rolling it around my mouth with some ice, like whiskey, the old top-shelf stuff.
I’m not supposed to go to California now. I’m supposed to do something else. And so this presents a challenge. Where am I supposed to go? I have 5 places off the top of my head I could use an old 500$ credit with. But I need to be there and flown back by Feb 11th. Heh. Add a wittle Mercury Retrograde and we have a partay! Can’t book til Jan 25th. Honestly, though, it’s all about perspective.
In another unrelated but related story, I was supposed to have a visitor this weekend that was unwanted. They invited themselves to my house for the weekend after I already said I would be on vacation another time they wanted to come. Oh thanks! I kid, but, eyy. Anyway. It just worked out this morning that all flights were canceled from their city to mine. And the message came through. “I guess Mother Nature does not want me to give you a hug goodbye.” And I said “Haha. I guess not.” Because that relationship ended five years ago and it’s not any longer in line with whats supposed to happen. I thank the Universe for diverting that flight and have been hi-fiving her all morning. (EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! ) It was simply not meant to be.
I wanted to discuss the idea of “haters” I keep seeing this! I was on EP and someone made a comment about trusting people and it was negative and like 40 people liked it. It ended with some comment about haters. It could have been a positive post but it was angled negatively.
I have a friend, or had a friend, that was big on this haters idea. The only problem is that the haters idea is in your mind. Just like Satan, evil and bad, all made up illusions to keep you controlled by fear, all of these creations invented by the mind, not nature. Sure, there may be what we would consider rough or sharp energy. But this type of energy moves things into the right spot. There may be a clairvoyant understanding her death in a negative way and therefore saying Satan or evil is out to get them. You have to die, it’s a natural process, but you are the one who views it through your filter of perception, making it positive or negative. All negative aspects are in the mind, taught to us by other people who FEAR things.
This blizzard, the perfect example. “I hate snow.” No, you dislike the uncomfortable aspects that you must endure during a strong snowfall. Like if power goes out. Or you can’t do what you want that day. Or shoveling. You dislike them. It’s cold and you’re cold and you don’t like being cold. Snow did nothing to you.
Or even the fear behind a blizzard. Gotta get out and get snow melt and bread! Watching The Weather Channel could freak you out! (and let me take this moment to really harp on the fear-mongering of modern day Weather Channel. Where’s Jim Cantore?! In a windbreaker, off to do an interview in 80 mph sustained winds in the Bahamas! No, this isn’t the 1990’s anymore, when love was overflowing as it was then and races were getting along. No! The Weather Channel has turned into the Fox News of weather reporting. The world is going to end and were going to televise it, piece by piece, EXTREME DANGER! Here’s a video of an old lady stuck in her car with her cat. What a complete crock of shit.) And people believe this mindset and feed on it. Like a car crash. Or a Trump debate. Sprinkle in a little Palin waving her arms and saying,”Pussy-footin!” And many other embarrassing things that ignorant people say.
Anyway. That’s all an illusion. Whatever really happened to you in the past 20 snowstorms/Nor’Easters/blizzards that passed over you? Nothing. Maybe your cousin hit a telephone pole. Adds a bit of sparkle drama. But really. You had to shovel snow and couldnt go to the mall for a day. Or in my case, Home Depot.
I’ll end this blog quick with an old short Cherokee quote.
One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson
about a battle that goes on inside people.
He said, “My son, the battle is between
two “wolves” inside us all.
One is Evil.
It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed,
arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies,
false pride, superiority, and ego.
The other is Good.
It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute
and then asked his grandfather:
“Which wolf wins?”
The old Cherokee simply replied,
“The one you feed.”
