It’s all about Relaxing into the Comfort of the Day

Forgot, until just now the major decision I made yesterday. I live my daily life with the same delicious comfort and freedom from conflict that I experience in the morning when I wake up in my perfect bed. My jaw is relaxed, my shoulders have dropped. My focus is about using today’s journal entry as a tool to reach for better feeling thoughts and aligning with source. I dedicate this moment to really enjoying this day. Looking for things that I want to see and reveling in the abundance that is all around me today.

Looking for Something I Want to See

Kicking the Tires of Thursday June 14

OK here goes. Pure and simply I want to move faster and more successfully to achieving my financial goals, or manifesting the millions available vortex. It’s a simple answer: there is a gap between my current mindset, and the mindset of abundance. My focus is misaligned, and I am resistant rather then open to receiving. Conflicts are canceling out the momentum.

Whoops, I feel myself creating the wrong momentum. “The car perched at the top of Knob Hill is starting to move a direction of self-criticism. That’s developing momentum in the wrong direction. What takes me where I want to go is feeling that I am on the verge of developing a truly wonderful and fun online business that provides a valuable service, generates a lot of income, and is a lot of fun to do. There is a huge market among the senior community. There is an opportunity for me to become a real presence, with a lot of positive public exposure.

Well that short paragraph has definitely moved me in the direction that I want to go,

GraphicWake up Enthusiastic

It sparkles to wake up enthusiastic about being awake and having a new day in which to play. Looking around, I see a buffet of “to dos” with which I can play to create a day filled with fun and accomplishment. I’ll put one or two of them on my plate, and delegate all the rest to my personal manager to complete in ways that surprise and delight me.

Delegate to “the Manager”

Now that’s really a fun filled thought. It’s a thought that deserves the magical 68 seconds of attention. I am love thinking about a universal manager who supervises “fairies of the universe” devoted to surprising me and delighting me. I great the morning, and list all of my desires. I pick out the cherries, and assign the rest to the manager, resting secure in the knowledge they are in the best of possible hands.

VICTORY! VICTORY! Standing atop a heap of wins this week. It’s wonderful thinking about al the events that have worked out smoothly this week. The small things equal the “big” things in importance. I treat all of them as evidence that things are always working out for me.

First, I had funds available to treat friends to lunch during a rendezvous at Cornerstones. I acted as host instead of expecting friends, who are temporarily more in funds than I to pick up the bill. Secondly the friends really enjoyed visiting Cornerstones. As a bonus, Spring flowers were blooming everywhere.

Although I spent an amount for lunch that represented a large percentage of my available funds, I had an abundance of funds for renewing my AAA membership at the premium level.

Now, I possess an iPhone. It is in my hands; in my pocket by day; on the nightstand while I sleep. I was so happy with the BLU phone that it tugged my heart to set it aside. Nevertheless, I desired an Iphone because of its enhanced operating system and 32 gigs of memory. The monthly price of the Iphone combined with the cost of mobile service is less than that of my original provider (that I loved). It is reflection of the deliberate focus on shifting the vibrational set point.

Last, but not least, the missing piece of Direct TV equipment (a mini-genie) showed up in my box of electronic parts. It was returned via FedEx on Wednesday morning: G will not be charged for equipment that was not returned.

I love life being good.

Mully-Grubby Morning

It’s a hair away from eight in the morning. The sun rising behind the row of palm trees creates a picture that fits an advertising brochure for a tropical island.

However, my feelings don’t match the uplifting view from my window. I am feeling “mully-grubby” which is a feeling identified when I was very young. That feeling established itself as the normal state of feeling when I was about eight.Read More »

Camp NaNoWriMo

Signed up for Camp NaNoWriMo with a commitment to write a thirty-thousand-word book this April.  This time, I signed up for a non-fiction book about living life in the fast lane for people over 65.

I am a writer

Fact is, I am a writer.  I write.  I want to write. I think of things I want to say by writing. The quality of the writing, the readability of the writing, the interest of others the output of my writing is irrelevant.

When it comes to writing, it boils down to one thing.  Writing sentences, paragraphs, and pages each day until I complete my word goal. Fortunately, I feel comfortable with writing fragments, like blocks of quilt, then arranging the pieces into a coherent pattern.

Focus on One Thing

Today I read a book that I borrowed from Kindle Unlimited half a year ago. It’s about the power of doing one thing.  The first pages contained a diagram of dominoes accompanied by a description of the power of one domino to knock over a larger domino, and so on and so forth until the escalating power of a single small domino can demolish buildings. This was a red letter insight because I fail to complete things. Project that are started take on a life of their own.  They create a vortex of energy that sours and morphs into burdens, baggage and confinement.

Focusing on the single most important thing for today is the touchstone that I am using to align myself daily with Universal energy.  Far, far better to spend ten hours focusing and one hour acting from that alignment then spending ten hours of unfocused activity.

Creating Belief

Writing this is creating belief in the rejuvenating power of years when all energies are focused upon opening the way for the sheer flow of Universal energy.

I had a flash of insight the opened a door for me in the moment. It disappeared before I could write it down.  Remember, I need summarize the day as well as open the day with alignment.

Morning Milepost

Sin Defined as Missing the Mark

Wow! Look at this definition of sin that popped on Wikipedia: “thought or action that endangers the ideal relationship between and individual and God.” Additionally, a Greek concordance defines “to sin”is to “miss the mark.”  What a delightful linguistic find; how well it merges with Abraham’s discussion of one’s individual alignment with Source.

Sin of Complacency

This morning, it became clear that I am a sinner.  I sin by my smug complacency.  I sin by resting on the self-satisfied conviction that my thought environment was basically “right.” In my fatuousness stance, I am 180 degrees out of alignment.

I am missing the mark in terms of my internal environment. My thoughts must change.  My feeling must change. I must rebuild, repaint, refresh, revise, refine, refurbish my entire internal environment.

How do I know that? It’s so easy.  I merely pay attention to what I am seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting and touching around me and I have a faithful image of where I stand with my thoughts and feelings.

The Avenue of Desire

I am happy with much  in my environment, but I passionately desire so much more; I desire the tenth power of what I have now.  For today, I am happy with what I have.  At the same time, I am happy with the desire for more.

The sin lies in Not wanting more.   It is missing the mark Not to want more.  Wanting more requires releasing resistance and opening more to the energy and voice of the Universe.

Happiness is the Important Thing

The important thing is feeling happy.  The important thing is clarity. The important thing is focusing on what I want, not on what I don’t want.  The important thing is shifting my vibrational set point. As I write, I feel a shift in my confidence. I feel connected. I feel fulfilled. Life feels fun and worthwhile although I am not doing anything special.  I feel differences between states, and practice shifting to a state that feels better.

Attending the San Rafael Workshop

Why do I want to go to the San Rafael workshop? Because it would be fun to participate in person again in a room filled with people out to enjoy several hours of participation.  It would be a lot more fun than it ever was before because I am so much in a receptive state.  I would love participating in the workshop because it would just be something I love doing out of who I am.  It would just be fun to be in the hot seat just for the fun of the experience. Another thing that I would really love to do is subscribe again to the workshop master tapes.  I really love those so much. I love loving things.  I love feeling engaged and excited about things.

In this minute, I can say that I really love my life, I love being here typing and I love feeling expectation of exciting and wonderful things to come as well. I really love this experience of wanting things just for the fun and eagerness of wanting things.

Imagination Exercise

Pure and unadulterated desire focuses a flow of energy.  What would be even more fun is to go to the seminar and pay for ten more people to attend. Imagine living from impulse without a care in the world.  I laugh when I think how I planned in logical sequence and ruined my life. Well of course I mean ruined in a fun way. I am in the groove and having a wonderful time this morning.  Madness not to align myself for the day.  Think of managing the way I feel and my focused intention to create fun and lovely things and let the Universal Manager move mountains and molehills. Try it for an hour-or two-or forever.

Imagine playing violin in the world’s most dynamic and thrilled orchestra.  Imagine being surrounded by musicians lost in glory of creating music soaring to the skies.  Imagine playing outdoors in an open field by a bubbling brook.  Imagine playing to the galaxies.  Imagine dancing in tune to unheard of music of the spinning and expanding galaxies.

Alignment for Saturday, January 13

Celebrating Micro Successes

Giggles! Successfully relaxed into well being for about an hour yesterday. A young man had the right numbers for ‘the big lottery.”  Electing the lump sum payment, he is over 200 million dollars richer. Think of it, abundance arrives out of the blue.  Think about this happy news; a young man is on the path of financial abundance for the rest of his life  That is in line with what I want: immersion in financial abundance so that I have what I want, easily and effortlessly for the rest of my life.  Imagine how much fun to remodel Genny’s mobile home from top to bottom, and put her up in a luxury hotel while it’s happening.  Imagine purchasing a brand new modular home for Linda and Greg.  Imagine gifting Cheryl with a million dollars!  Imagine flying Genny first class to Canada to visit her son, granddaughter, and grandchildren.

Fun Thoughts of Abundance $$$$

I love having fun, and one of the most fun things in all the world is providing good things, happy graphic of a modular home wiht a lawnthings, and fun things for people.  What I really like is my shift from dependence to independence.  Thinking about providing wonderful things for people is a really happy thought.  It feels really good just thinking about doing those things!  It feels good to think about Genny feeling vital, and energetic with strong legs returning to her ability dance.

Relax into Awareness of Well Being

My shoulder is experiencing sensations reminiscent of sharp stabs with a blunt knife. However, this does not detract from luxuriating in well-being.  Inside a warm shelter while cold fog swirls around the outside.  A snuggly warm robe, a wonderful computer, cats on my bed, topped with the whipped cream of a subliminal erotic arousal. I am certainly more engaged with these wonderful experiences.  I enjoy focusing this way when I remember the way I felt when I was wracked with feelings of discomfort.  

Think of those great lyrics from “Westside Story.”  I feel pretty, oh so pretty, it’s alarming how charming I feel.  A thought drifted across my mind that I really like thinking.  What if the deliberate cultivation of well-being combined with the active practice of vivid imagination, opens doors to a new journey, far more exciting than I deemed possible.  A new way of participating in the world that is far outside the box of expectations, imagine driving a hundred miles an hour without trees in the way.

Remember, it’s too big to control-all I can do is guide my thoughts and allow “The Manager” to work it out.

Yesterday’s Successes

Self Correcting Electrical Outlets

Celebrating a success yesterday!  Got the electrical outlets working in both my bathroom and in Genny’s bathroom.  Magic!  I got a red light on my surge protector indicating there was no grounding in the electrical outlet.  Dug out my tester, and through a series of inspired mistakes, discovered that the “reset” buttons needed a very hard and deep push to reboot the outlet Now both outlets work.  For me that means I can recharge my toothbrush, and use my hair dryer right from the bathroom.  That’s a big yes.

A Fist Full of Dollars

Deposited forty dollars into my account! Rolling in riches!

Inspired Writing

Yesterday, I wrote, then posted the following:

This week two strangers received joyous news.  A match was found for a new kidney. Their struggle to live under the shadow of renal failure is over.  The donor was my cousin Penny, who passed from this life January 4th when her life support was disconnected.  One door closing opened two others. Life passes to life. Like water, life takes many forms and shapes that are beyond our ability to see. Penny lives in our memory, and in the lives of others as well.

I didn’t have the slightest emotional tie to my cousin, who I only saw when she was three years old, yet I cried when I wrote it because it was inspired by Source.


As part of my new daily routine, I spent some time aligning myself with well-being.  From that I was inspired to that tribute to my cousin.  What was important was the insight that I gained.  Life passes to life.  It takes myriads of shapes and forms but life is eternal, and there need be no sorrow, nor sense of loss.  When I read or write something that comes out of source, I cry. Abraham says that crying is an indication of residual resistance. So I accept it simply as a signal.

Feeling Good about Socks

Writing about alignment, remembering moments of alignment, remembering feelings of alignment all assist me with realigning with the vortex.  Do you know what I feel really good about?  Do you know what really makes me happy are my new socks.  When I read about them, I felt that they would be good socks, and my instinct was right.  They are perfect socks; the right thickness, the right height, the right coziness, the right colors.  Life is good because I own perfect socks and was able to throw away the abominable socks. Nuclear war threatens, but I am happy because I own perfect socks

Kicking the Day January 5

Right now, I am feeling reverberations from yesterday’s visit by relatives. A substantial focus of energy was needed to prepare for the visit. The feelings of effort was of course my resistance. Right now, I have happy feelings about the visit. That happiness relates to dropping my resistance in a way that I could render assistance in a way that others perceived as valuable.

I’m promising myself to daily practice of imagination. Practicing creative imagination in order to generate better feeling while distracting my attention to the conditions around me.  Abraham says the conditions surrounding me are things past, done and over with.  Using imagination focuses me on the creative power of the now.

Trickle of Abundance

Already, I am experiencing so much value from aligning my day, that I am eager to add an evening alignment as well.  Happily, I am finding the feeling place of financial abundance. It’s a trickle of feeling but in Itasca State Park in Minnesota, I stepped over a tiny trickle of water that becomes the mighty Mississippi in just a few miles.  The trickle of abundance that I feel can just as easily become the abundance so vast that I cannot see across it.

A New Habit: Feeling Good

Time to focus on feeling good!  What I like is knowing that I can move myself to a much better feeling place. I choose good feeling music. I tone up and down the scale with a pitch pipe. I sing.  I think about feeling really good instead of thinking about the conditions around me. I use imagination to create a place that feels good.


One of the things that I really love is sitting on a nice sun warmed flat rock near the ocean, and losing myself in the hypnotic rhythm of the waves.  The quiet mindless-ness merging myself always feels good. I feel a sweet breeze on my face. The warmth of a mild sun, just warm enough to sit comfortably without a jacket. Smelling the saltiness of the ocean; hearing the cry of the gulls wheeling overhead.  Down the beach a dog runs with a stick in his mouth.  Sandpipers run along the beach.  Little waves dissolve into a wash of water. How do I feel now? I moved up the scale to one step below satisfaction.

Practicing New Thoughts

Yesterday, I gave up empathy because I don’t want to add another link to the chain of pain. A person in my life experiences pain in her back- again.  I assist by applying a prescription gel to her back because she cannot reach it herself, but offer no expressions of sympathy. I don’t allow myself to feel badly because she does.   Instead choose thoughts about her true nature. Source knows her as bright and healthy, Source knows her as a capable and loving person, filled with generosity and love. If Source knows her as a capable, loving and generous person, then I know her as a capable, loving, and generous person filled with well-being.

Daring to Think Well of Myself

I choose to look through the current presentation to see who she really is and connect with that;  However, to do that, I must look through my own manifestations of resistance, and experience myself as Source experiences me: generous, humorous, loving, filled with the enjoyment of the craziness. This takes me down an interesting alley.  What about this business of seeing myself as one of the ten most wonderful people in the world.  Source adores me; what if I adore myself completely and without reservation. Little voice tells me its wrong to adore me because I don’t live up to certain standards.  Wow! An entire chain of thoughts streaming through my head telling me I can’t adore myself and think of myself a totally wonderful. It’s delusional, its egotistical, I am not perfect. I don’t know unless I allow myself to experience myself as the best thing since sliced bread.  Everyone around me is so lucky that I am near their experience.

End Note

The person in my life just came by to tell me how much the gel application has helped her back; I know that has to do with my shift in the way I choose to view her.

Today’s Script Ture for October 26

Had some wonderful dreams last night. All I remember was the feeling of the dream. It felt delightful: good things were happening and everything was working out for me. Today I am writing about a successful organization imbues senior citizens with power: political and social power. Why? Because I want to have senior citizens to have more fun in the third stage of life than they had before. I want senior citizens front and center in society, not shunted into a backwater.

2017 A Year of Imagining 2017

In the middle of last December, I was creating cat designs to print on coffee mugs. Futzing around for quotations, I stumbled over one by Maxwell Maltz. I kept coming back to it.

“A human being always acts and feels and performs in accordance with what he imagines to be true about himself and his environment…For imagination sets the goal ‘picture’ which our automatic mechanism works on. We act, or fail to act, not because of ‘will,’ as is so commonly believed, but because of imagination.”
