I Think I Found It - my voice that is
Thank you to Toastmasters for this image. The image is called Finding Your Voice.
A whole lot of things happened to me yesterday on this subject so I thought I would write about it today while it is still fresh in my mind and because it is a continuation of what I wrote yesterday. I wanted to be both serious and non-stiff and something more - but I could not put my finger on what that something was.
Getting off this track for a moment, I will say that this is my pet name for God/Goddess: 'and Something More' because it reminds me that no matter how grand I visualize the Supreme Being, HE/SHE is something more, something beyond my comprehension - this helps me keep things in perspective.
Yesterday because of the constant urgings of my loving companion, I went to a open mike session which featured an author who is a professional writer. He read from his book and afterward, he talked about his current book - a tome about golfing with spiritual people - the author was happy because he said someone was paying him to golf, his idea of heaven.
On the drive home, I was bantering this subject around with my loving companion when I said out loud: "I wish I could travel the world, talk to spirit-driven people, and get paid to write about it." A shiver of knowing went down my spine and somewhere inside of me, I knew I had spoken some truth of my soul. I also know that I love to travel and meet people and write and this idea could merge all three worlds - and for some strange reason I could visualize myself doing that. For the next three minutes (until I got home), I was grooving to this idea - my spirit was soaring to the heavens And then I fell back into my household routines and then I read the comments on this blog and again my spirit soared. Thank you for your kind words - they really do make me feel Joy.
So I am going back to work on my new idea for a book about people who have influenced me and how none of them had the full impact I thought they would. But each of them helped me change my world a little - and over time that little rolled downhill and picked up momentum and now I feel as if I have entered a tipping-point zone in which all these littles have merged into a one big change. Surprisingly, I am embracing this big change without internal resistance - it must be the right time. I must be in the right place.
I hope you are getting to your right place too.
