I am so proud of Diva! She really stepped into the plate today and helped me out a lot with things that were needed around the Palace while I went to work. Yeehaw for DIVA!!!!! She is awesome!!!!
Tripod and Freckles are learning to share living space. Today they paid a visit to the groomer together, like good siblings. They are so cute! I do believe what The Boys say about animals being here to help balance the vibration of the planet. They definitely balance mine! It takes a few strokes on Tripod's face for all my worries and troubles to take a second place in my mind. Thinking about this, it is so easy, if you think about it, to balance your vibration. It only takes one deliberate step for the Universe to take ten thousand. You think one positive thought and the Universe brings you an avalanche of positive manifestations. You smile and the whole world smiles back at you. Think about Tripod. He lives the moment. Literally. Tripod is missing a limb but he's not crying about it. He doesn't whine or complain or try to inspire pity. He just goes about his day like nothing. Chasing squirrels, and also climbing on furniture when I'm not looking. He can climb on the Red Bullet like nothing. He even lifts his only hind leg to pee on trees! Every time I see him I think about the countless times I have let a broken heel or a lost button threaten the harmony of my day.
Today for some reason I thought about romantic love and how easy it is for us to confuse love with dependency. How easy it is to lose our vibrational balance and make others responsible for our happiness or our unhappiness. We fall in love with someone with whom we completely align. For a while we choose to only focus on the things about that person that are in complete alignment with us. We put the other person on a pedestal. We don't ask for anything because we feel abundant by this person's side. Just being with him or her makes us feel complete. We make them our excuse for being happy. And then one day we wake up on the wrong side of the bed and we decide that enough is enough; that we have been way too benevolent and "what is so-and-so doing for me?" "I give and what do I get in return." And so on! It seems like we take a 180 degree turn and go from being generous, magnanimous, adoring, loving ourselves and loving our partner, into a feeling of limitation, of lack. Comparing and measuring what we give against what we are receiving. We suddenly become aware of the lack. And so lack becomes a reality for us. Now we make them our excuse for walking away from our Inner Self, from our Source. And at the end of the day it is all a matter of choice (again, that pestering word!). At the end of the day it was all about focus! My dad used to say "It takes two to tango" and he was so right! If one chooses to remain happy with who he or she really is, with "self", then one can love and adore that other person forever and ever because the other person is not responsible for making us happy. We are. I am responsible for my own happiness! Woo-hoo!!!! I'm not kidding you. When I realized this for the very first time; when I really understood it, it was like if a huge weight had been lifted off of my shoulders. I did not have to wait for someone to come and want to make me happy! I could be happy regardless! Yeehaw again! And this knowledge attracts the best partners together. Right? Right!
Where did that come from and why? I'd love to know. I could've skipped including it here but I promised to write an honest blog and here it is. With pets and all.
To be faithful to our tradition, I will report on the Grasshopper. He's in a much better mood! We did not have our routine talk this morning as Diva was in charge of driving him. We are looking forward to the weekend and spending some time with friends. I am scheduled to start packing house this weekend. Something I really, REALLY, don't look forward to, but that I know that the Universe will find a way to make it easier and lighter on me.
Thank you for staying with me. Thank you for taking this journey by my side. I sense your presence and can almost feel your eyes rolling, sorry, reading! Hehehehe Now, seriously, you make me strong.
