THIS HAS TO BE GOOD!
'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]
Read the last Daily Message titled, IT'S YOUR DECISION
I witnessed the most enlightening metaphor this morning while out running early morning errands. It was a similar type of intersection that you might come upon while pulling into a big parking lot at a mall or grocery store. Those entering the parking lot do not have a stop sign while those coming out of the parking lot do have a stop sign . . . yet, the person with no stop sign stops for the person with the stop sign. So there I sat behind the car that stopped, which had no sign to stop, as traffic backed up behind me waiting for the unconscious person in the car to go. It didn't make me angry, I just smiled and decided to look at the reflection.
The more you are conscious
the more you realize when you are unconscious.
I quickly scanned a few areas of my Life to see how and when my unconsciousness, stops others from doing what they need to do, much less stopping myself. DANG! There I was looking at my actions and not the person driving in front of me. They are in their own stuff . . as I am in mine, so there was no usefulness in getting mad at the person in front of me. I may as well use the experience to benefit myself because it was happening 'for' me. The only JUST GO! about this equation was in myself and what I was not doing in my own Life.
As many of you know me well enough by now, I'm a firm believer in looking at everything as, "Since everything must serve me in a Good way, then this has to be Good." And it was.
