It's NOT. The "truth will set you free" & the truth about my todo list is that in one sense it doesn't even exist - it's not real in the first place. Furthermore by placing my attention on love & spirituality I am "doing" what is by far the most important thing on the list (or what should be on the list) as first priority.
Why is it number one? Quite simply, there is nothing more powerful than love, there is only love & as I place my attention & all of my being in/on love it connects me stronger & stronger (practice makes perfect) with the source of infinite wisdom & employs the powers of the universe to manifest things for me so to speak - as I let go my desires, intention & joy into the universe the synchronicities that follow will assist me in my "todo"list in divine right timing... I hope you can follow all of that- it's so cool when one is on track with this & I hope that you will discover this flow in your life because it absolutely rocks!
The strange thing about this nudging that we get is just that- it's a nudge, rather than an in your face screaming alarm of some sort. It is usually as softspoken as a lovers whisper, gentle as a feather & you must be paying attention or you can miss it entirely. Sometimes I've asked the angels to turn up the volume! I've come to realize that everything in the heavenly realms is about gentleness. It's about love being kind & not forced,free will & not pressured. The connections we make within, in order to really go deep need to be progressively calmer & more & more relaxed, effortless & allowing - it asks us to TRUST
Yesterday I was guided to be more like a stream. A gently meandering brook. It gently flows, taking the easiest route, nourishing all life in its path whereever than path may lead - it goes with the flow as we must- not fighting against the current . As I considered this thought I went to my kitchen window where I witnessed a cat in my garden & recognized that this cat too knew to be calm - it casually surveyed its surrounds, it was in no hurry & felt no anxiety of a todo list, nor did it have an agenda, a fear pertaining to any sort of lack or any sense of needing & not finding love - it was completely trusting & knowing...
Later on that same day having been considering these aspects of "being still and knowing that I am God" all about me, I realized & II believe that these inner studies of all the aspects of God gradually brings our beings into the same alignment. As we focus on the free, gentle, unforced unconditional love, we become more of the same ourselves. A friend who I have been helping, teaching & sharing aspects of spirituality with was guided to call me. He was very grateful & pointed out to me that my gentleness & soft-spoken making of several points had been what had impacted him the most - there was no hype or forcefulness of any kind in my delivery & this had allowed him to trust it & to recognize it as truth more easily. The truth doesn't need to be defended- it doesn't come with a entire assault of words trying to justify itself - it just IS. I am grateful to have helped my friend & take no credit for that belongs to God, but I do feel like I was the one blessed!
It's in the stillness where Love works its magic in transforming us - I'll be listening carefully!!! In fact whenever I find myself getting even a little bit anxious, even if it is for more love, everything seems to grind to a halt. I cannot get anything to work out & should I try to force things it gets worse. It's just time to STOP & get calm - to find that 'peace which transcends all' & listen, watch, be...

Davo - please share the love!
