Gratitude List / 2 minutes of appreciation: Getting your prayers answered/synchronicity - In this ambitious city, in this time of the world wide web, it's so easy to fill up your time with all kinds of things both good and not so fun, which gives the illusion that you are accomplishing a lot and making a difference in the world. But I have learned that frenetic activity is not always a sign of growth or progress and sometimes it can lead to burnout because it's work done for the wrong reasons, or you're on the path you think you should want, rather than what you truly want. I am guilty of being the hamster on the wheel, huffing and puffing and sweating away while staying immobile. Only since I have become more quiet and have started paying attention to what brings me a feeling of being alive at the end or what I feel called to go to intuitively(without knowing why) do I understand the magic that is all around us always course correcting us and putting us back on the path to what we really want, if I have the eyes to see it and ears to hear it. This evening was an example of that--seeing some posting in a random FB post, and feeling like, I need to go to that even though I don't know anything about it--finishing my work on time and just going without thinking about it, has reminded me of a request I made just a few days ago, about my next steps and then boom. There it was. It seems you pretty much always get what you ask for, and if you are not getting what you want, then you have to either let it go, ask for something else, or look into the way that you are asking. And trust. Trust that there is a larger order to things, that you are an important and indelible part of the whole and you are never forgotten.
