Life Lessons

Posted by Whiz on February 28, 2015

I am traveling through another session of the 28 Day Wealth Journey available at Perception U.com and The Shift Center. I have traveled this journey many times. I learn something new with each adventurous journey.

Today is Day 11 this time through.

Yesterday, I didn’t write in my Wealth journal. I was to keep track of my thoughts, and decide later whether they were thoughts or Angel Ideas. Today is “Turn things back into thoughts day” following the writing. This has been educational. I want to share this day’s journey with you on this blog that I have been neglecting for a long while, relating here what I’ve learned today.

I am practicing turning thoughts into Angel Ideas. This is the process of what brings material thinking into Ideas, this process then brings thoughts into the realm of thinking as One Mind. I begin with the qualities of all that appears in my life…..translating these into the spiritual nature of what shines through. I discover what uplifts, inspires, transports.  This is the Action for today’s exercise of the Wealth Journey….practicing turning thoughts into Angel Ideas.

Sometimes what we do appears as “active not doing.” I recognize this as what happened for me yesterday. Yesterday began with a thought…..I realize now it was a thought of “compel”, rather “impel”.  I felt “obliged” to paint rather than inspired to paint.

I didn’t write yesterday for Day 9.  Instructions were that I was to wait until after I’d written down all the thoughts I had, then record what I was thinking, then write in this journal. This writing would help uncover whether it was a thought or Angel Idea.

I started with the thought, “Paint”. I got out my “Daily Painting” book, picking up where I had left off with last reading and read another couple of chapters. Then I thought, Paint. I got up to gather paints and supplies out of closet.  On my way, I decided to sweep kitchen floor first. I thought, ah ha, I’m procrastinating….go get the paints and paint.

Next thought, maybe I should mop the floor since I just swept it. I did. Then I thought, I should mop the bathroom floor as I was in this floor washing mode. So I did. Next, clean the toilet, and the sink, then wash rugs. I did all those tasks. Then……next thought, paint.

On my way to get the paints, I thought to check my messages.  I check messages. Next, I respond to messages. Next I listened to tapping exercises. Then I read blogs….blogs that are writing and telling me how I needed to work hard in order to perfect my talents of what I create. Then the thought. Paint.

Next thought, I’m not a good painter. Next thought, you have to paint, you must practice to get better. Then, then, then, many thoughts later and before I knew it, it was time to fix dinner. I decide I will paint after I eat. I watch television while I eat dinner.  I watch a bit more.

Nearly bed time now.  I check recorded programs. I discover one on ETV, Great Performances. I notice that it is with Josh Groban and the New York Philharmonic Orchestra together celebrating Italian Music and Movies. L LOVE  Josh. I decide to watch….just a little before I go to bed.

Oh, wow. This is so beautifiul. I watch some more. I watched an hour and half…the entire concert. I see each person, each instrument…..reveling and appreciating the thousands of dollars invested in all those instruments, all those dresses, all those tuxedos, thousands of hours of practice from each participant to become proficient at their particular instruments, then be chosen to play in this prestigious orchestra performance. Everyone. Many hours. Much discipline. Much beauty. Each individual plays their part beautifully, yet the true harmony and beauty of the playing comes as they play together. Wonderful music. Exhilarating. Uplifting. Harmony.

Next thought. I would never be that proficient in anything I do because I don’t work that hard. I felt very human, very small.  I most definitely knew this was not an Angel Idea.

I am listening and being guided by Angel Ideas. That’s it isn’t it? I am Listening and Being guided by Angel Ideas. Be this. Trust this. Live this life as an Angel Idea.

I am grateful for the beautiful concert that played in my home all day yesterday. I am grateful for that beautiful concert I recorded the of Josh Groban and the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. I can replay this concert at any time, transporting me to the beautiful world of harmonious blending of music, images, voices, sounds, perfection. I see it. It is already mine…..within. I cannot see it outside of me if it isn’t already present within.

Back to today, Day 11, on the Wealth Journey. I recognize that thought, “paint”, was a compel thought. I felt obliged to paint based upon material perception that I haven’t painted in awhile rather then “impel” as a divine action to paint with inspiration. My actions for the day were harmonious….lasting….beautiful after all even though I didn’t paint.

The day ended with my listening to and appreciating that magnificent Great Performance with Josh and the orchestra singing and playing Italian lyrics that I could not understand with my head yet my heart was able to hear that beautiful music. I was appreciating….seeing….the beauty, talent, harmony expressed by others. No judgment, pure gratitude and appreciation.

I choose, instead of feeling guilty for not ever picking up my paint brush yesterday, to be grateful. Grateful for the day’s activities that lead me to express and appreciate….a clean house, and a wonderful concert.

Who knows, maybe this is the part of “This day as an unfoldment of infinite progress in which every detail is governed by the Law of Love”?

Who knows, maybe today is the day that I take the action and paint, feeling inspired by all the beauty I heard, I hear, I see, I hear again, and again.

Today I take action only on an impel. This feels like an Angel Idea.

“Just be what you are in the moment you are.”

I narrate this somewhat nonsensical day and thought processes I experienced in order to clarify my own thought processes. Yes, I do see the silliness of how thoughts fill up an entire day seeming to keep me away from what I “should” be doing. Yet, what an awareness lesson of expansion and learning.

Even when a day is filled with the mundane, the magical moments of inspirations for learning are all around.

Thank you.
