“Worry is a misuse of the imagination.”—quote by Dan Zadra that I’ve always loved, but had forgotten until I was reminded of it by Cindy from my Sunday posse
I’ve repeated this at least as many times as you’ve heard Uptown Funk** this week. I cherish, adore, love and appreciate the beloved friends who I get together with every week when I’m in town. This is a group of brilliant lights who happen to know they’re brilliant lights, who live and act like brilliant lights. Lots of folks haven’t learned that tiny, but oh-so-vital piece of universal intelligence.
I, for one, woke up this morning doing everything I know not to do and doing none of the things I know to do. I didn’t consciously create my day, I didn’t repeat my Amazingly Awesome affirmation and, heck, I almost didn’t even go to my group. I was slightly mopey, worrying about my daughter’s semester in Costa Rica, feeling guilty because I’m less-than-perfect. You know, the typical effed-up human thoughts that are only as true as the energy I put into them.
So I walked in late and just seeing the faces of all these beautiful human beings who were deep into meditation completely shifted my nonsensical thinking. By the end of the group, I was swing dancing with Trina.
So here’s the thing I keep saying. It’s imperative to do this high-vibe business with others who are a) committed to bringing their best game b) who know the only thing worth talking about is what’s working and c) who know that we are ALL beautiful lights with beautiful ideas to change the world.
To paraphrase Tiny Tim, “Thank you, everyone ONE.” For bringing it (the light, that is). For believing that together, arm in arm, heart to heart, we CAN change the dominant paradigm.
I love you all.
