“Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree.”—Emily Bronte
One afternoon, when Taz was four, she was playing “mom” in the backyard with her friend, Ashley. Ashley had taken her turn being “mom” and had dutifully washed the pretend dishes, hung up the pretend laundry and ordered her pretend daughter, Taz, to pick up her toys.
When Taz’s turn came, she said, “Okay, now I’m the mom. I’m going to go meditate.”
It was one of my proudest moments. My daughter believed that’s what moms do first.
I don’t remember her friend’s response, but I do know this. The most important thing anyone can do for themselves is to get in tune with the Divine Buzz.
You can read all the books, follow all the steps, write affirmations to the moon and back, but unless you begin to feel this invisible, yet palpable buzz, this infinite force that flows through you and connects you to all that is, you will spend your life searching.
It’s all right here. In this moment.
Meditation is one way to feel the Divine Buzz, but there are countless paths. Above all else, align with whatever feels most joyful. This instinctual, incurable buzz is the best GPS I know.
Pam Grout is the author of 17 books including E-Squared: 9 Do-it-Yourself Energy Experiments that Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality and the just-released sequel, E-Cubed, 9 More Experiments that Prove Mirth, Magic and Merriment is your Full-time Gig.
Thanks Pam! You have just reminded me to schedule some meditation into the morning – even 5 mins! Always makes me feel connected. I have just discovered your blog BTW and LOVE it. So much wisdom and fun here 🙂 I’m a British ex-pat living in Spain and have also just ordered E Squared from my local bookshop, like literally today. Only 9 days to go before I can devour it and have fun with all the exciting experiments. Counting them down!
Thanks Pam! Thanks for sharing this to all of us that “The most important thing anyone can do for themselves is to get in tune with the Divine Buzz”!!! Right On !!!
So cute. I don’t know what I’d be doing now of I did not have my Transcendental Meditation practice. It seems like if I’m tired overwhelmed or out of sync it is because I meditated late or missed a session.
thank you especially for this
I have always felt the Buzz. I just thought it was my imagination!
More happy stuff: The scene in the original Disney movie where Haley Mills convinces the Reverend it might be beneficial to focus on the “Happy Texts” in the Bible.
Whoops! Movie title: POLLYANNA

This is a great analogy for finding our way back to ourselves. If you haven’t read her book E Squared, I highly recommend it. E Cubed is her next book…and is on my list to read! Enjoy!
