Happiness at our fingertips
The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance; the wise grows it under his feet. ~James Openheim
These days life seems as if everywhere we turn around, there is another fire to put out, another crisis, more chaos to clear up. We keep thinking that if only this would happen, we will be completely at peace, completely happy, if he/she would only….. happiness would never leave us. We question why the problems come, if spirit was in this situation, it wouldn’t be so hard. Yet as we go through yet another test, another trial, one more painful day, this is the lesson. Just as we reach higher heights for finances, for goals in work, education, we set our bar higher, than higher again, so spirit moves in our life to teach us to relish in this moment, find our happiness in the quietness of this minute, or be able to be completely centered, balanced right now, right here just knowing that Higher Power has us in hand. We consistently find the negative in each everything right now, how can the universe trust that when we get our dream, our miracle, we will appreciate it, see it , embrace the little irritants that the great job we have ALWAYS wanted ( believe me it will have some stresses, some issues) that love, ( believe me he/she isn’t a god , not perfect by any way, shape, or form) with happiness. Let our happiness grow today, knowing that our miracles are right around the corner being happy for the journey, seeing the little burst of growth s of wisdom along the way!
Animal totems: Yesterday in my meditation, alligator came to me. Now I don’t live near, nor want to be near an alligator, but I thought I should research what spirit is saying to me. The Crocodile or Alligator is the keeper and protector of all knowledge.She is the primal mother in whom all knowledge rests and waits to be born.People with a Crocodile or Alligator totem have the opportunity to develop new wisdom but they must be careful not to be consumed by this wisdom. Study each bit of knowledge carefully before going on to the next. Today while I am off for various reasons I will meditate on the knowledge I receive from spirit.
I am off today. I was going to work this am, but yesterday there seemed to be so much chaos in and around the calls. Many people missed their calls, keen was having problems connecting the calls properly so I am going to take off, smudge everything.

I will answer emails later after he gets settled down for the night. I love getting emails but please give me time to answer them all. Talk soon on Friday.love ya, Me, Bob, Bets, T
