“You will be bound until all the world is seen by you as blessed.”—A Course in Miracles
Happy Monday, my friends! I’m down in Mexico, loving the weather, the mountains and all the beautiful souls who live here in Ajijic.
Every morning at 9 a.m., I head to Jimmy Twyman’s Namaste community for the morning message and to get a bunch of hugs.
Today, Jimmy challenged each of us to do something “impossible.” The example he shared was his own belief—up until yesterday—that he, a talented musician, couldn’t write a song in Spanish.
Rather than continue on with that belief, he decided to challenge it. He not only wrote a song (in perfect Espanol), but he produced a video (complete with graphics) that he shared with us this morning.
Another “impossible” story came from my dear brother Rod who I met three years ago when I first came to Namaste. He’s 80 now, but when he was 65, soon after retiring from his demanding career as a construction supervisor, his body more or less gave out. He had tremendous back pain, neck pain and could barely get out of bed. Doctor after doctor couldn’t help. Like all of us, he was given the cultural programming about “old age.”
But since he had a much younger girlfriend at the time, he decided that being infirm wasn’t going to cut it for him. He met a guy selling a tonic called “Longevity” that supposedly would keep old age at bay. Rod bought a bottle, began to feel better and bought another bottle.
Within a couple weeks, he was back to his old self. As he says today, it wasn’t so much the tonic that “cured” him, but his belief changed. It was no longer “impossible” that he could be as fit as he ever was. And today, 15 years later, he’s hale, hearty, passionate about life and one of the most loving humans I have ever met.
I also want to let you know that my website is being re-designed this week (one of the many blessings I’ve received over the past few months) so it will likely be unavailable for a few days. So if you can’t access it, that’s why.
And I’ll leave you with this question: What “impossible” belief are you willing to let go of today? #222 Forever
