“The only real valuable thing is intuition.” – Albert Einstein
I’ve decided that I’m going to use my intuition to write this post. I have no idea what I’m going to write about, but I’m going to have faith that Albert was right about intuition and that the perfect topic will come to me as I keep writing. I’m hoping for that wonderful feeling of Satori to kick in. Satori is a Japanese word and it describes what happens when you are taken over by a creative project and time is seemingly irrelevant. You are acting out of time and out of ego, simply channeling the creative force of who you truly are, the Divine Creator!
So, today I keep thinking of the Gospel of Thomas. You remember Doubting Thomas, one of Jesus’ disciples. He’s the one who asked for proof that Jesus came back, that’s another story which I kinda doubt happened, the way it’s presented anyway Thomas admitted that he really didn’t have much of a clue as to what Jesus was trying to say with his parables and metaphors so he decided rather than trying to interpret Jesus’ words or tell Jesus’ story he would simply write what Jesus said and let people make up their own minds.
Of course, we don’t get the opportunity to read Thomas since he wasn’t included in the New Testament. Why the Nicene Council of the Holy Roman Church decided to edit the gospels is anyone’s guess? Mine is that they chose the gospels which worked best for their agenda to control the Roman Empire, but I digress, the perk of following intuition!
So Thomas, in his humble innocence, simply dictated Jesus’ words. You can find them all online, but the one that really hit me, WACK, right in the face was what Jesus said when asked what people should do. Jesus said, “…don’t do what you hate…”
Wow, if there are any words
to live by, strangely written in the negative, but for a good reason, it is those five words.
DON’T DO WHAT YOU HATE!!!!!! This seems simple enough, but how many people kill their spirit by doing what they hate, for their whole lifetime? They do it out of responsiblity often enough. They have children to raise and send to school, children whom they don’t see enough because they work too much, bills to pay, plastic toys to buy which they don’t get to use because they work too much, huge mortgages to pay on houses they spend little time in because they work too much, big cars to pay for to drive to and from those jobs. These words come to mind. Futile. Striving. Endlessness. Broken. Exhaustion. Depression. Isolation.
Is this any way to live? DON’T DO WHAT YOU HATE!
Ah, but I have to pay for all this stuff. Let me tell you something, Sir! I lost my job about 8 months ago, hence the blog, and I was making half the money I made working. I stopped buying what I call plastic toys, which is all the unnecessary crap we buy, and I managed to make my mortgage, make my car payments, pay off my credit cards, eat healthy organic food, and did this for six months.
Here’s the kicker. I can’t go back to my old job. It was killing my spirit. So I am going to have faith that the universe will provide my perfect life for me. (Don’t be surprised if I add a donate button on the side, someone has to subsidize these posts!) I am not going to live in fear. Do I want to teach my children that they must do a job they hate for the rest of their lives so that they can buy all the conveniences they wouldn’t need if they had more time, or if they did what they loved and had less money, but lived simply? Sometimes intuition leads to jumbled sentences, but you get the drift.
You are the teacher of the next generation. Do you believe that the universe is friendly? Do you believe the universe conspires to make your dreams come true? Prove it! DON’T DO WHAT YOU HATE. IT WILL KILL YOUR SPIRIT!
This experiment in intuition seemed to work, the time passed in an instant, and some sense was even made (I hope). Now it’s your turn to follow your intuition and do what you love. Follow your dreams in faith. Know that you deserve to be happy. You are a perfectly made you with your own special desires and talents. Follow your purpose. Follow your DNA! It was made with you in mind! Yes, perfectly you. Don’t live a perfect life, live your perfect life.
Your perfect affirmations:
- I deserve to live a life which fills my soul with joy and purpose.
- I happily pursue my dreams with the faith that God wants me to be happy.
- I have enough stuff.
- I am enough.
- My children are happier with my time than with my money.
- I love my life.
- I live my perfect life.
Close your eyes. In your mind, take a walk in the woods and when you come to a clearing you will see yourself doing what you love to do. Enjoy it. Now make it happen
