Staying focused on what I know i’m here to do doesn’t stop the distractions, just makes for more choices to be made. So many things going on. many wants to do, places to see, people to do them with. How to ever choose which to do, because of course I want to do them all, like everyone! The only way I can ever accomplish what I want to achieve with my work (arting and writing), to get published, is to focus focus focus. So here i am at my desk doing a final edit on my novel, and for the moment, putting on the back burner another project (nonfiction) that i’m working on with Dani, my writing partner…which will be attended to when my novel, the main project I’m invested in right now, is ready to be presented to find its publisher in early March.
BUT…working on what we want to achieve doesn’t stop the synchronicity of life happening, now does it? So here’s a tidbit to chew on that’ll make you laugh–and wonder at.
Got a phone call this morning from Jamie, my good yoga pal up in new york city. She’s in charge of Donna Karan’s Urban Zen Project ( www.urbanzen.com ) . Sitting beside her as Jamie drank her morning cup of joe was Nicole, who’d just arrived back from Costa Rica, where she has a fish farm, deep in the cloud-forest mountains, close to where I also happen to spend a lot of time. Call it coincidence? Call is “a sign,” call it kismet–whatever alchemical, synchronistic term you choose to call it—three days ago Nicole had been given MY card when she went into an ice cream shop in the coastal village of Dominical, when the kind proprietress there used it as a recycled scrap of paper on which to write the name of a Big Apple restaurant for Nicole to check out when she returned home. I’d been in Dominical three weeks ago, for a surfing adventure. Now Nicole is back in the city, back to her job assisting my yoga pal Jamie (!!) in Donna Karen’s pet project, the Urban Zen organization, and Nicole casually says to Jamie, “Hey, do you happen to know Lordflea?” Jamie hoots and hollers, laughs and wiggles in delight of such PROOF, of what a small degree of separation we all have. She called me right then and there, and all three of us, me Jamie and Nicole, shared a moment of ecstatic wonder, marveling over just how exactly connected we ALL are, each and everyone one of us, on this here spinning blue globe we inhabit, as each of us continues to whirl like insane dervishes upon our own focused centers.
This particular instance of “connection” is astounding, and real. The “sign” of how we all reach out in our energies without even being aware that it’s happening, to know, to share, to comingle with each other—it’s simple incredible, and oh so very real. Of course the connection is that we are Spiritual Beings having a human experience. For those who don’t know—they scoff. For my Jamie and her pal Nicole, our mutual connection is specifically about a sacred yoga pavillion just built in Uvita, Costa Rica, which I’ll discuss on my next blog. Check out www.lacusingalodge.com for a preview of my next discussion.
We who work on bringing the LIGHT of awareness (through yoga, zen, and other awareness modailities) to as many people as we can, with joy, with health, and with a hefty degree of comedy and entertainment, are always being give PROOF that our faith is real, our connections are strong. All we have to do is look for them. Wow. Take this connection we have with other, former living beings, for instance (given in humor, and to keep things light!) Now HERE’s the serendipity of life that keeps things rolling toward the right focus, i’ll say!
Keep smiling—we’re all connected!
Are you with me? Still smiling?
Short or tall. Fat or slim. Black, white, green or purple—all religions, all beings everywhere! WE ARE ONE!! Let the synchronicities roll! I’m feeling much more focused now, thanks. ahhhhhhh—oooommmmmm.
