I woke up today and my day was not fully planned. This is an effect of yesterday. Yesterday my day did not go as I planned it. Don't get me wrong. It was fantastic. In fact, it was so good that when I got home from my date I didn't want anything to interfere with those feelings so I went to bed without opening my planner and working on my agenda for the week. I slept really well and woke up eager to start my day even if I didn't know which end was up. As I was driving in early traffic this morning, I had a feeling that everything was going to be fine...and so it is.
Normally, I am planned and organized. I could be worried that those who count on me–colleagues, contractors, co-workers and peers–will think that I am losing my OCD-type-A-control-freak-ways, that this is not professional, that something in the general plan will fail because I don't have my plan for the day or for the week. I will not worry. I will not worry for a couple of reasons. First, I am learning to live free of the opinion of others. Second, time is an illusion. I have time to accomplish all important things.
I felt these reminders in my morning mediation which I inadvertently did during my morning drive. The sun was peeking behind gray clouds and it reminded me that behind apparent darkness, the sun shines. We just have interference in our view. People's opinions of us cloud our vision in the same way, interfering with our true identity. We forget that we are divine, that our worth stems from within and that giving credence to the fleeting opinions of others can be discouraging, confusing and scary.
The other reminder I received is that we have time. We receive time abundantly each day. What we choose to do with it is up to us. With my purpose clear, with my intentions set, with my spirit aligned with Spirit, with my willingness to be an instrument of a higher plan and by allowing things to happen in their time rather than forcing them, I accomplish everything that I need to accomplish for my benefit and the benefit of others.
I am thankful for these two reminders this morning. They are your reminders too.
