We live in a fast moving world these days, and people have gotten used to the concept of instant results. Constant communication access. Fast food. 24 hour delivery.

Got a pain? Pop a pill for fastfastfast relief

And I think, because of this, people are often surprised and even outraged when some things take time.

But that’s how some things are. Some times you’ve just got to hunker down and do the work before you can see results. And one place this can happen is in metaphysics.

There are some things in metaphysics that can be amazingly quick to happen- but often you have to give some time and energy to a practice before you’ll get places.

  • Want to be comfortable with praying in any situation? The more times you pray, the easier it will become for you.
  • Want to get good at meditation? Easily accessing an altered state takes practice (perhaps that’s why they talk about a meditation practice…)
  • Want to do acupressure? It takes time to learn all the points and meridians.

And this concept of doing the work seems to be hard for some people. Where’s their instant Nirvana?54f6a620-f2d8-4bdc-ad37-a97aa1a18800

We have someone that we’ve seen a couple times a year for quite a number of years now. He’s a nice guy. He’s had some distinctly metaphysical and spiritual experiences. And he’s motivated for more.

And every time he sees us, he asks the same questions about how to achieve his goals. And we give him the same answers. And he doesn’t follow through

He keeps asking if there’s some simpler way- some “magic bullet” that will shoot him straight to what he wants with no further delay.

Without doing the work….

Based on his skills and approaches, there isn’t. We tell him this- and the next time we see him, he’ll be asking the same thing again. It’s as if he believes that, if he asks enough times, the answer will change and he’ll get what he wants as soon as he wants it. Like now….

It’s sad to watch him- and the saddest part is that, if he’d just done the work as opposed to fishing for shortcuts, he might actually be where he wanted to be by now.

Sometimes you just need to do the work.

Although sometimes….

We’re all on the path to enlightenment, but we also all have different stars to steer by, different goals we’re heading for and different paths forgetting there. That’s fine though- it’s not a one size fits all universe.

As if that were not enough, most of us face challenges along the way, and one of the primary challenges is clearing away the stuff in our lives that isn’t really about our journey so we can see the things that are.

Clearing. Simplifying.  Finding our focus and our life’s mission and then staying on the path…

Ran across a one year course on doing just that. Thinking about taking it to see what I can clear away and what I’ll find if I do. Amongst other things, I find it interesting that, while the course is not free, the student gets to pick what he’ll pay for it.

Thought this might be of interest to my other fellow travelers in the universe, so I’m sharing the link here.

A Year To Clear What is Holding You Back!

Here we are in the dark time of the year, and it’s easy to get down and blue when the days are short and dark and cold. When we get the blues, the vibrational level of our  energy fields also drops down lower, and tends to attract more of the things we don’t want and less of the things we do.

How do we break out of this downwards cycle? Well, as noted in previous posts, you need to fill your own bucket. You need to pay attention to what gives you joy or strength or peace and make a point of making time for more of that in your life on a regular basis.Copy of Fotolia_44996157_M

But what if you don’t know what that is?…

Many of us have spent so much time doing the things we’ve been told are important that we’ve lost track of what actually makes us happy. We rarely get a moment to nurture ourselves… and when that moment occasionally happens, it speeds by and is gone before we can figure out what to do with it.

There’s lots of good ways to figure that out, and I’ll be talking about them in upcoming posts. For now, I’d like to recommend a book called The Woman’s Comfort Book by Jennifer Loudon. It’s a great reference for figuring out and remembering how to nurture yourself. Check it out and enjoy.

– so what are you going to do with it?

Copy of Fotolia_44996157_M

(No really- what great things do you want to do with this gift of a new year?…)

I hear a lot of people talking about New Year’s resolutions with scorn or dismissal. The prevailing story is that resolutions are meaningless commitments that you make that you never intend to keep and that you will abandon by January 15th, or 30th at the latest.

But those are just stories; and you can always choose to tell yourself another story.

Let me lay some ideas on you that you might want to think about.

  • Resolutions are just a fancy name for goals that you set at the beginning of the year.
  • If you never set any goals, it’s likely that you’ll get little to nothing done.
  • We tend to be happier when we are making thing happen that we want to happen.
  • We’re all setting goals all the time, both big ones (I’m going to travel to Paris) and little ones (I’m going to get up to get to work on time.)
  • Goals only work if you do the work to make them happen.
  • Goals are like promises that you make to yourself. If you make a promise to someone and break it, they stop trusting you. If you set a goal and don’t keep it, you stop trusting yourself (which can screw you up in quite a number of ways.)
  • We all fall down on our goals at some point. Some people use that as a reason to quit, but you can also chose to see failing sometimes as part of the process and get back onto that horse.
  • Finally, you can set a goal or make a resolution at any time of the year, but turning points tend to help people to make a change. New Year’s day. Your birthday. Your anniversary

So, you can have a mediocre year that leaves you feeling blah and wondering where it went- or you can have a year where you make astounding things happen and invite miracles into your life.

The difference is goals.

So what are you going to do with 2016?

Ran across an interesting article lately that claimed that people who stayed up late were more intelligent, more creative, more proactive, more open minded, and anti establishment.

As a night owl and a fairly intelligent person, I have mixed feelings about this. I think the data they have is very interesting, but I think the conclusions they draw from that data are pretty big leaps of possible logic.

Check it out and see what you think.

People talk about not having enough time to pursue their dreams. Here’s something that really puts that in perspective.

The Time You Have (in Jelly Beans)

So… what are you going to do with your jelly beans?
