One of the gifts I want to give myself is a smoother ride, through life.
Happier. More joy. More connected. More in the flow, in the zone. More laughter. More freedom. More excitement. More fun.
Get the most out of this delightful experience.
And in the quest to hover on center, in day-to-day awareness, it’s becoming increasingly evident: the less I’m about campaigning the world to correct itself according to my specs, and the more I’m about just letting the rest of the world be as they will, the easier Zen comes. I guess stabs at controlling the inherently uncontrollable doesn’t contribute to Zen.
I don’t think of myself as being judgy or especially critical (because I’m not), but it can creep up sometimes in little ways. I’ll get the urge to set somebody straight either directly or even just in my head. I’ll notice I’m not feeling so good and say, “Hey, what’s up with this?!”
And I’m glad for each time it does. It alerts me to an opportunity to find more peace. It is a GIFT, getting that nudge.
‘Cause for the most part, I’ve learned to live and let live. I’m pretty damn good at it. But when I’m a little off kilter, even just a smidge, I’d like to know early on so I can make adjustments. I like to drive my own car, that way.Be what you want to see. #OnMyRadar Click To Tweet
Theme this week is about who is driving the car. Who’s input are you seeking? Are you eyes on your own lane?
Monday, Four of Cups rx: With the giant hand offering a drink, this image suggests a potential for misunderstanding or delusions. Somebody is drunk. Dreaming it up or down, either one. Sometimes, people avoid acting on longstanding dreams because they don’t want to risk the possibility of losing the dream. This has kind of the same feeling. Some confusion or lack of clarity in terms of what you expect vs. future visions. Take it easy, slow and not too seriously today.
Tuesday, The Chariot: Awesome card here–a road opening, opportunities to make progress. Some movement may be indirect, sidestepping obstacles. But we have some open roads, so take the turn and keep going! Good day.
Wednesday, Ten of Wands rx: Delegate. Hand off responsibilities that are not yours–and expect any responsibilities that are really yours that have been handed off come home to roost. Do what’s your and let what doesn’t matter go.
Thursday, Three of Pentacles rx: Living by committee won’t work so well. Your choices may not sit well with the collective. If someone comes to you with their desires for you, acknowledge and appreciate the care that prompts it, and then go on and do what is in your own heart anyway. Do not try to control and do not allow yourself to be controlled. Acknowledge the good intentions while still making your own choices.
Friday, Tower rx: I’m seeing a stack of blocks that wobble but don’t fall. Weaknesses and issues with structure will be more visible than normal. Insights about circumstances that are “iffy” will be visible. You’ll be able to spot this today so use that info.
Saturday, Page of Swords rx: Running with scissors? Not the best plan. Words can come across more harshly than intended. Don’t worry about it. Just accept what’s useful, constructive, and discard the rest. Be aware, your own words may be heard more harshly than you were aware or intending. Mind your words.
Sunday, Ace of Swords: Clarity to end the week. Clear idea, communication, a clear message, a clear thought. Muddled info from earlier in the week should come into sharper focus. Good!
Overview/Advice, The Hermit:Bathing lady knows how to live it up! Any conflict and drama comes up? Step back. Takes some time for you. Don’t try to fix it, fix it, change it, change it. Step back and get clarity for yourself first, foremost and exclusively. You cannot impart clarity to others, you can only inspire it through your own clarity. So step back, retreat, and get a handle on your own grounding. Everything is easier when you’re grounded.
Affirmation: “If I am resisting ‘evil,’ I am attracting ‘evil.'” Maybe you don’t agree with this, but one version most will be able to see. If you’re very focused on a particular issue or worry, that issue becomes a bigger part of your experience and you’ll see it everywhere. Whatever your major focuses of concern, you’ll be experiencing evidence of it, the essence of it becoming part of your day-to-day experience, because that’s where your focus is. The more you focus, the more momentum you add to the overall energy. It’s up to you to decide how you want to live. But it’s something to be aware of. You do not need to be absorbed in a problem to be a part of the solution–problems and solutions are very different energies.
If you’re bothered by the hate in the world, then talking about all the hate and sharing examples, and being outraged and upset does not drop the sum total of hate in the world, but does make it a bigger part of your in-the-moment experience. It immerses you in the very thing you don’t want. Whereas shifting focus to what you’d like to see instead–kindness and love and understanding–that is the energy of the solution. You are bathing in what you want and helping the collective make the shift by adding your light to the path, easing the way for those that would follow you.
Align with what you want, not against what you don’t.
That is how I’m looking to stay in my zone. Then it doesn’t matter, what someoone else believes. All that matters is if I’m living in close proximity to my own beliefs. If I want to see more kindness in the world, then I can be more kind. If I want to see more joyfulness in the world, I can actively participate in making some of that. I get to play in the energy I want more of, and be the change I want to see. It doesn’t get any better than that.
