These things dont freak me out anymore

Yesterday, I met a friend at Starbucks and we spent a couple of hours discussing enlightenment and how I tend to avoid it by not doing what I am guided to do--specifically, meditation, giving up caffeine and yoga. Those are really not very big things and, so my angels tell me, doing them consistently would change my life. I pondered, with my friend, whether perhaps I don't really want my life to change--and told him how, usually, when I am wondering about such things, my angels amp up the guidance, kind of hitting me over the head with it.

I received this in my daily, DAILY OM, email today:
Avoiding Your True Power
Afraid To Meditate

There are times when we feel the pull to meditate but are swayed from it by the excuses that spring to mind. We may think that we are too busy, have no time to ourselves, or that we do not have the right place to meditate. Our minds can think of dozens of reasons to put off meditation. But those are even stronger reasons to look past the illusion of the hustle and bustle of daily life and to connect to the place within that intersects with the timeless power and limitless potential of the universe. From that place we can experience that potent stillness that exists at all times, and it is only as far as away as our breath.

It might be useful to ask yourself why you would put off something so beneficial to your peace of mind and general well-being. There may be fear that if you were to stop your frantic pace, your world might fall apart, and then you would have to face the undeniable reality of who you really are and the results of the choices you have made. You might be afraid that you will be forced to make huge changes in order to align yourself with the universe and harness your true potential. Sometimes the frustrations of the known world seem less scary than the possibilities of the unknown. But the truth is that when we cooperate with the universe by creating our lives from the truth of our being, life becomes less of a struggle and more of a process of living blissfully on purpose.

Finding yourself alone for a few moments can give you the opportunity to turn within to infuse a sense of calm wisdom to your work. Whenever you can take the time to recenter and refocus, it will remind you how beneficial it is to connect to your source. Then you will make the time for longer sojourns of spirit, because once you are rejuvenated and enlivened by knowing that you are made of energy and light, you can channel the power to create your life in alignment with the highest potential of your soul.

Need I say more? I was planning to go into the office today but instead, Im heading back to Nyack to meditate, go to yoga--and to meet with our attorney about the new house. Tomorrow I will go it without caffeine.
