What often frustrates and derails the spiritual student is the quandary of how to live all the things learned along the path. The purpose of this blog is not to ask anyone to change a belief but to help those who are intent in their pursuit of living in alignment with their beliefs to put those ideals into their real lives.

BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD
Recently, Don & I had the
privilege of watching “Beasts of the Southern Wild”.Suffice it to say I loved it, particularly
the voice-over dialogue of the young girl regarding the connectedness of the
Universe. I took away several things
from the movie, but here are a couple of them –
I now call those unexplained fears that pop up from
nowhere my “Beasts of the Southern Wild”.
Whenever those fears/Beasts pop up, I borrow/paraphrase
from the scene where little Hush Puppy confronts the Beasts, and I say to my
fears/Beasts, “I know you are my friend from who I was before, but I must tend
to who I am right now.”
The real take-away is that
the Universe is “talking” any way and every way it can.(You would not believe the lessons gleaned
from last night’s 4:00 a.m. Spider Solitaire game!)It is a wise entity who would have “ears to
hear and eyes to see”.
There is so much available
for you – let it all in and let it change your world.
