Week 14

What a fun week.  Christmas started the week and I must admit I have been a little remiss in some of my readings, sits, etc., and late getting to my blog.  However, I also must admit, I didn’t feel a bit guilty about missing them!  I didn’t feel stressed out, didn’t attempt to make them up – I just enjoyed the time, the experiences of the day and loved the week.

Now I’m back in the saddle and watched the first of our suggested movies last night.  I chose “Wild”.  What a wonderful movie.  Having ridden my ten speed bicycle across country, (many years ago), it was first, a great opportunity to reminisce.  As she was unpacking her newly bought gear to pack it in her back pack I start moaning and groaning and Laurie says, “whats wrong?”  Having the knowledge of what she was getting herself into and she not having a clue was down right painful.  And then it was laughter as she tried for the first time to set up the tent, use the stove, etc.  And then her mantra, “I can quit at any time,” and the mental conflicts of constantly debating actually quitting.

All the obstacles she met, all the potentially contentious individuals she encountered as well as the extremely dangerous and life threatening circumstances she confronted; the sheer determination, passion and purpose was her compass that she never let sight of and the concept of quitting faded away like a dream you can’t remember in the morning.  Her dogged persistence was the wave that carried her to succeed.  One step at a time is really not that difficult.

Og’s Third Scroll corresponded perfectly with the watching of this movie.

As an observational and experiential aside, on Friday and Saturday evenings, I travel to a town close by to spend the night with my Dad and his wife in case they need any help.  They are 92 and 94 respectively.  I leave early in the morning, (it is still dark), to come home and drive past a waste management facility, (a garbage dump), and about half the time get behind a tractor trailer on its way with a load.  Fifteen to twenty-five miles per hour is the best that can be hoped for on this extremely curvy and hilly back road.

As I was returning home this morning, the last day of the year, December 31, 2017, one of these beautiful beasts turns on to the road in front of me.  On the very back of this truck highlighted by my headlights, are three large triangles, red, yellow and blue.  The yellow and blue triangles intersect in such a way as to create a fourth GREEN triangle.  How interesting.  All four colors, all triangles and the small green one is the one that stood out the most.  The green triangle is associated mostly as my financial point.  Finances and money had been for me a great challenge.

All I could see were the triangles, focused on the smaller green one, unaware of the speed and acutely aware of the fact that this tractor trailer was carrying all of this financial baggage to the dump!  As never has happened before, the truck pulls into a turn lane allowing me to pass prior to pulling back onto the road behind me.

WOW!  Leaving all the financial baggage at the dump and the intensely focused little green triangle as a beacon and guiding star getting brighter as I travel into 2018!

God Bless one and all and enjoy a healthy and prosperous NEW YOU!!

    I spent some time reading your blog and checking in on occasions with a comment or two. Congratulations. Week 14 Done, during the holiday season…becoming the independent self-directive person you set yourself to become. I am glad you answered the call within. Keep on moving forward in changing your old blueprint..to gain what I think is going to be a life changing experience.

    I am looking forward to seeing you manifest your intentions.
