Spent the better part of the morning wrestling with god. Why do we have free will? Why are only some things destined? What, exactly, are the rules in your chess game? Not that I’m particularly good at either. The only thing I’ve done right is yield when I’m being pulled by the providential scruff no matter how much I’d rather kick and scream. All the rest continues to be an absolute mystery.
Instead of trying to outsmart the universe, I’m simply resting at its feet in devoted curiosity.
Later I read a fluff piece in Elle on manifesting. Gag me but the takeaway was essentially, we have to believe we’ve worthy in order to receive whatever we’re asking for. I’ve always wondered why these so-called champions of manifesting have yet to manifest world peace. Are optimal lifestyles, wardrobes, cars, partners and bodies more worthy of one’s belief than Love for all living beings? Answer me that Ms. Schovel Shinn.~
Do you believe in manifesting? What’s the difference between manifesting and prayer? Do you believe you’re worthy to have either requests fulfilled by whoever or whatever governs the universe?
Hope you’re staying well in the midst of all the madness. Recently discovered some delicious, gluten free bread. Toast and tea are always good medicine. xo
