"You are the owner of all that you perceive. But you can't perceive apart from your vibration. Feel your way, little-by-little, into a greater sense of abundance by looking for the treasures that the Universe is offering you on a day-to-day basis."

~ Abraham

"The main event has never been the manifestation; the main event has always been the way you feel moment by moment, because that's what life is." -Abraham

Another affirmation that it is better for me to approach all things (even STRESS) with an attitude of playfulness.

Maybe I'll start a movement. ;)

It is Law.

"You live in an inclusive universe. When you look at something and shout "Yes!" at it, you include it in your experience. When you look at something and shout "No!" at it, you include it in your experience." - Abraham-Hicks

All is well, and you will never get it done. Life is supposed to be fun. No one is taking score of any kind, and if you will stop taking score so much, you will feel a whole lot better -- and as you feel a whole lot better, more of the things that you want right now will flow to you. You will never be in a place where all of the things that you are wanting will be satisfied right now, or then you could be complete -- and you never can be. This incomplete place that you stand is the best place that you could be. You are right on track, right on schedule. Everything is unfolding perfectly. All is really well. Have fun. Have fun. Have fun! -Abraham-Hicks

Who doesn't love a good tragic love story? More to the point, why do we love them, and is it unhealthy to love them so? I don't know the answers to those questions. All I know is that I have had inspirations for such stories a lot in the past few weeks, and I feel like I need to tell one. For instance, I watched the movie version of one of my favorite novels, Wuthering Heights, the other day (the version with a youngish Ralph Fiennes omghot and an amazing actor to boot) and scene after scene I was struck repeatedly with how overwhelmingly in love Heathcliff and Cathy were, to the point of self destruct. Unhealthy? Yes. But heartbreakingly lovely.

Some quotes from the movie... )

I realize that this tragic kind of love goes entirely against my own desire to promote self reliance ( "My world will not end if I am alone, because I will always have myself/higher self"), but it's so gloriously powerful. The reason Emily Bronte was able to pull it off was that Cathy and Heathcliff are awful people, in reality. They're not the heroes (the next generation of children is). They're not anti-heroes, either. They are selfish, and cruel, but in a very human way that makes us love them. That's a difficult thing to pull off, in writing.

I also am aware of the fact that a certain author of sparkly vampires thinks her main characters reflect this same tragic romance... WRONG. Wrong wrong wrong! OMG wrong! I am offended by that comparison. Even if I did like the "saga," Wuthering Heights is a masterpiece and you would have to be on crack to think Clutzy McGee and Sparkle Marbles have anything in common with Catherine and Heathcliff. Ugh.

Ok.

Anyway.

I have a tragic love story building in my brain. I reconcile my spirituality this is logic: it's okay to write tragedies because we create our own desires by learning through contrast. This way, we can experience the badness of tragedy without it actually happening to us, but strongly enough to launch those wonderful desires that we live to manifest. Yay :D

Look out for lyric posts in the near future... there are a few Belle & Sebastian songs that have been haunting me in this arena lately.

I was looking for a way to say this, and then I got this daily quote in my email from Abraham-Hicks (no surprise, this email is all about the law of attraction):

"Everything that I think that I need to do is all only in order to propel me to some place that when I get there, I think I will be happier. So, everything that I am doing, no matter what it is, all of my lists of rights and wrongs… are all about me getting to a manifestation that I believe I will then be happier... So, why don’t I take a short cut and just go get happy?"

There is a fire that burns inside each of us—some more strongly than others, some so faintly that they might as well be dead. When harsh winds blow, some flames flicker and fade; some lash against; some bend beneath; and some flames are extinguished. But we know that the only way to prevail is to smile into the wind, and dance with the storm.
