I am sitting here, in front of a blank screen, immersed in a most interesting part of the creative process.  I have nothing to say.

I am at a loss for words, because I am feeling.  A feeling cannot be truly conveyed through words.

This is an exciting point in my life.  I am actually manifesting my dreams!  They are becoming real right before my eyes, and all that I have to do is reach out and accept them.  For this I am overwhelmingly grateful.

I have just thought of what the word grateful actually means if it is broken down.  Great-full.  What would we be acknowledging if it were not for the gifts with which we have been bestowed?  I am aware that each word holds such resonant magnificence. So do I.  So do you.  The words are just symbols for that which We Are.

I love my life 🙂  I love the creative person that I AM.  I delight in each day that I am alive!  And I wish to share that delight with everyone.  Joy incites good will and what is the good of good will if it is kept to oneself?

Even when I was immersed in my darkest hours, I loved my life.  Even when I could not see my way out of that darkness and was painfully groping around for a light switch,  I have come to cherish each moment.

The manifestation of my dream for my very best life does not hold the answers for you.  I do not think that anybody else’s dream is right for you to blindly follow.  Regardless of how magnificent the dream, it is still a dream.  It can, at best, be an example of what applying the abilities, memories and knowledge of that skilled dreamer can do for you.

Regardless of how many courses or workshops you take, how many books you read and how many questions you ask, the answers will always be, in the end, up to you to determine.

There are things I know, and there are things I don’t know.  For me, there were no 7 Easy Steps, or any politely packaged exams that “all I had to do” was pass in order to proceed.  Nor do I, looking back, wish there were.  That would have made the process entirely too predictable and that would have meant that someone or something else was the captain of my ship.

What I do know is this – simple and pure and easy to understand . . . because I desire it, each day I will know more and more.  How do I know that?  Because it happens.  It is happening right now, as I write this.

I know I am great – full.  As an extraordinary part of the great plan, my role is no less, or no more than my sister or my brother’s.  That is what makes it great.

How do we describe greatness in this world?  Generally, it is considered the attribute of an individual who has the vision, the motivation, and the inner fortitude to impact the world in a great way.  It is always about how it effects the collective.  In a large, expansive way,  a way that makes the rest of us want to step up and count ourselves in!  We respond to that greatness.  We know it.

I take great delight in being part of this magnificent collective!  And when I feel that delight coming back to me, in a tangible, extraordinary manner, the only appropriate response is . . . gratefulness.   I am confirming, once again, that I am filled.

We are all ordinary.  We are human.  We are born, we live for a while and then we pass on.  We may come back and do it all over again.  Every one of us have these experiences in common.

We are all extraordinary.  Within those common experiences is a kaleidoscope of diversity, as varied as the snowflakes that fall silently through the deep night sky.  If we look closely at those experiences, in a certain Light, each one . . . every one of them has infinite value and beauty.

Each one of those extraordinary experiences has melded together to create the wonderful aspect of our Creator that you see in the mirror  – the being that looks out through your eyes and lives its life in concert with billions of others.

I am, like you, an ordinary person living an extraordinary life.  It is the beauty within the kaleidoscope of my life that I wish to share with you.  Those colors and shapes, I know, have been magnificently designed to blend with yours.

7 Easy Steps cannot compare.
