This one is about the Important and the Urgent!
Below is what has happened in our lives over the last few weeks. It really shows the difference between the Important and the Urgent.
The Urgent is what constantly is in front of us, that, supposedly has to be done…but does it. It’s stuff like reading my email, reading posts on FaceBook, watching TV, or fixing our car….all the stuff that seems necessary, and it might be, but keeps us from doing what we know we should be doing…the Important…like researching and starting that business, exercising, writing your story, or learning something new every day! My Important is to write every day about what I have learned about Healing and God, and how to develop that into a business online, so I can help people heal. It’s sharing what I have with all Creation.
My mentor said today that we always have time to eat and sleep. When we view the Important as that crucial, we will have the time.
So first the Urgent…like our car problems, it finally gave out. It went from bearings and brakes to the front suspension, the A/C, a gas line break, which almost started the car on fire, and finally, it starting only when it wanted to!! You think maybe it was time!! It took 3 weeks of looking at cars to finally decide to buy a new one…a Kia Sportage, something that should last 5 or 6 years. That was urgent and important.
Getting money transferred to buy it has been an experience. One has to have all the account numbers right, and knowing which ones are right is not that easy. So the transfer was delayed, while we try to figure it out. I think we have it now, but have been without a car for over a week. That’s been interesting. We had to depend on friends or relatives and taxis.
Also, Ryne and Natasha (my children) came to visit and attend our wedding reception. And there are always the mundane things like fixing the house.
This week we went to a friend’s home for lunch and a swim in her pool…great fun, but no writing happened. Yesterday we decorated a Christmas tree and made a Christmas scene. It all takes time, and no writing happened again. The Important seems to get pushed back.
The Important…So last night I wrote some in a book that I am writing a chapter in. It’s about half done. The problem is what to write. I consider myself one who tries to say what I need in as few words as possible (well maybe not, as you can see from this blog entry, haha.) This morning, after going for a nice long walk, I sat down and started writing. Now that’s getting to the Important!!!
So I am trying to tell you what life is like “down here.” What I wrote about above has been negative, but, for a reason. Life treats us as we treat it. If we just drift along, Life’s current will drag us down until we feel depressed and worthless. It takes changing our attitude and the way we look at things. One has to focus on one’s calling.
Now for the good part!! I have lost 15 lbs since I moved here. I have noticed that the stress here is almost non-existent. The pace here is slower, and it can be frustrating at times, but I am happier and much more content. I have been able to mediate, pray and listen to my inner self. What a feeling! What a life!
Now that’s Important!!!
So if you have questions, or need help getting to the important and Finding a Healing God, just reply to this post or send me an email.
