“The whole universe stands on tiptoe waiting to assist you in miraculous and amazing manifestations.” –Constance Arnold
I’m sure nobody but my editor noticed that I deleted one of the paragraphs about Barbra Streisand in the anniversary edition of E-Squared.
In version one, I mentioned that her intentions to be a glamorous movie star were SO STRONG that she, with her unconventional looks, had little choice but to manifest a voice powerful enough to lead her to stardom on Broadway and eventually the movies.
Yesterday, I heard an interview with the multi-hyphenate superstar where she basically said the exact same thing.
“Thoughts transcend matter,” she told Robert Rodriguez when he asked how she could possibly have achieved all she has over six decades. “With a strong enough will, you can manifest anything.”
“People wonder how I can hold notes for as long as I do,” she said. “I will it to happen. Like the Goethe quote says, ‘at the moment of commitment, the universe conspires to work with you.’”
She also mentioned that she gets very quiet and listens, that she tunes in to what feels right.
What feels right to me these days is exactly that–to be very quiet, to erase all ideas I learned about what is and isn’t possible. And especially to walk away from fear.
Fear is rearing its head across the planet. Everyone is dividing up, taking sides, casting blame.
We humans are capable of such atrocity. But we’re also capable of such love, such beauty, such creativity, such light. And since, as Barbra pointed out, thoughts transcend matter, I’m putting all my thoughts and energy into love only love and the life force that holds the infinite.
Any other thought is wasted distraction.
