From Walking The Fence To Picking A Side

From Walking The Fence To Picking A Side

Just now here at the cafe I was trying to be extra careful with my iPad.  I just bought a new case for it, and it’s nice, but not as protective around the edges as the last one.  So I was being ginger with it. Making sure no liquids were too close to it at my table. It was a concern that ironically caused me to spill my venti cup of water all over the table, the chair and the floor.

And of course my first thought was, damn, it happened!  The very thing I was trying to prevent!  But my iPad was still in my hand, and virtually nothing of mine got soaked.

And on top of that, a woman at the next table rushed over, said she already told the barista, and began moving all my stuff off the table for me, Within seconds, the Barista came over with her towel.  thanked her, too, and she said, “As long as your stuff is o.k. That’s all that matters.”  And she added, “We adore you!”

So I moved to another table, and within moments another barista had a fresh cup of coffee and a new water positioned next to me.

It was all seamless.  Graceful.  Almost magical.

So, a couple of things here.  It’s not an earth-shattering story,  but it is a demonstration of how the universe, or our soul, has our back, regardless of how the mind can become overly cautious about things, overly worried.

It demonstrated how, first of all, worrying can actually create the events we are worried about.  As I look around, most folks have laptops, which are not overly protected with covers.  In fact there are no covers on them at all as they work with them.

I’ve noticed that in some ways I have become more controlling and more anxious and cautious about things in my life.  Things that earlier I didn’t give a second thought.

I’ve become aware that those thoughts erode my sense of joy.  And I notice that there are still many things I am relatively carefree about.  So, the not so carefree thoughts are coming up, no surprise, for a final clearing.  I say that because as they come back, they are not nearly as compelling.

We are all experiencing this, because this is the time where we find ourselves, many of us, at a crossroads.  A time where it’s almost do or die.  We can’t walk the fence.  We have to pick a side.

And most of us are finding that the side we pick determines our next experience.  There is less and less lag time involved for some things to manifest.  It’s good to be hyper-aware of what we are feeling and to ask ourselves, what side of the fence is that emotion on?
