FROM THE ETHERS
Lots on my mind these days. Where I’m going and more importantly when? I know it’s on everyone’s mind.
For the longest time, I wanted to write about: ‘I don’t like people.’ I don’t want to seem rude (there I go caring about what others think of me), but sometimes I just don’t like people. Raise your hands if you get it. I don’t like people, but I truly love each and every one of them.
Maybe it’s the way they think, or the lack of thought itself. Maybe it’s because I see the bigger picture when others do not. I see the path to completion. I know the steps that need to be taken. I’m usually one step in front of everyone, efficient. I’m sure I’m not only one in this boat.
Backstory: Early on in my mediumship studies at Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp one my teachers gave me a t-shirt. It was black with white stick figures on it. There were a couple on the ground and one standing. The shirt read: ‘DOESN’T PLAY WELL WITH OTHERS.’ I laughed so hard and gave my teacher the biggest hug.
In between writing this, my friend just said, ‘You think of everything.’ I’m like really, OK. It just comes to me. And now, my sister just called me for my other sister’s address. Never mind that they live in the same city in Wisconsin. I tried to pull it from my memory, but couldn’t. I had it up on the Internet in seconds. I know that’s not that big of feat. I like that it happened while I was writing this – synchronicty.
How ‘bout those negative nellies? It really shocks me sometimes what people say, even in casual conversations. ‘Hey, how you doing?’ Response: ‘Can you believe this or that’ or ‘we’re going to be in this until,’ blah blah blah. I was happy to see the person, but just wanted to get out of that energy. I sent love and light as I moved on. It’s not that I haven’t ever been the one saying, ‘Can you believe this or that.’ We all grow.
My biggest lessons this time around include patience and tolerance. I work on them daily and have at times become really good with them. Bottom line, it’s really all about coming into one’s balance. Being mindful. And always remembering ‘everyone has a story,’ and ‘I cannot control what other people do.’
Blessings of Peace and Love!
P.S. When I was thinking about a title for this, I saw my daughter’s Facebook post, which was a paragraph similar to my blog. I love that! The title was inspired by my daughter.
