Daily joy

How is it that I can go so quickly from my confident calm cool self to insecure mess?  It’s amazing to me that I can have SO much evidence for love and support and safety and security in my life and when one little thing triggers me I can be off on the way to my crazy hole spiraling downward with not so much as a tree root to grab on to.  The mind is can be a very tricky place to be… at least my mind can be.

I read something the other day that brought even more clarity to this topic.  ”The Law of Attraction says that that which is like unto itself, is drawn. In other words, that which you think, in any moment, attracts unto itself other thoughts that are like it. That is why whenever you are thinking about a subject that is not pleasant, in a very short period of time, most of you, upon any subject that you ponder very long, attract enough supporting data that it does bring forth the essence of the subject of the thought into your experience.”

So, it’s not that the things I’m thinking about are true or not but that my thinking about it long enough must bring forth evidence of it’s existence because of the attention I am placing on it.  Like a file drawer marked “relationships don’t last” or “I can’t have what I want” or “this is not safe”.  Once I open that particular drawer I am only able to access what’s in that drawer, thoughts that support the title of the drawer.  But there are also other drawers.  Some marked “everything works out” or “all things work together for good”.  For me these drawers aren’t as well used as the others but they are there none the less.  So all I have to do is start opening those drawers and get them good and worked in so they are as full if not fuller than the other file drawers that are entitled with things I don’t want in my life.

The joy I am finding in my life today is my openness to love and growth and sometimes feeling uncomfortable.  It is in the inquiry of uncomfortable that magic is found.

Everything works together for GOOD… I believe it!
