"Nothing Above My Shoulders"

"Nothing Above My Shoulders but the Evening".  This is the title to an album by one of my favorite new age artists, Ray Lynch. His instrumental music is phenomenal.  When I really thought about the meaning of the title, "nothing above my shoulders but the evening", I realized that must be the true meaning of freedom.  No proverdial weights on your shoulders, no heavy loads to carry, no worries on your mind. Nothing but the evening and the stars. 

Do most people think that is a fantasy life?  I hope not!  When I listen to this music I can clear my mind of all worries and concerns.  I can truly be in the moment. (A good glass of wine doesn't hurt either). You may think that I am using music and alcohol to escape my real LIFE, but that is not so at all.  My real life is this wonderful and yours can be too.  What it is, is a choice.  We all have the freedom of choice. You can choose to be happy, positive, abundant and fulfilled.  Or you can choose to be negative, depressed or miserable.  A lot of people do not like the word choice because it implies responsibility.  Yes it is a responsibility for each and every one of us to "choose" happiness or sadness. 

 Which choice will you make today?

We are all familiar with the quote, save for a rainy day.  Have you ever stopped to really think about what this means. We are all taught from a young age to be careful about wasting our time and money because you never know when something "bad" is going to happen to you and you need to be prepared.  Why is it human nature to always assume the worst possible outcome in any situation?  Save your money because you could lose your job or your health. Don't waste time being non-productive.  Work hard all your life and save, save, save for those proverbial golden years.

If you know anything at all about the universal "law of attraction", you know that dwelling on, and being fearful of those rainy days, will surely bring them your way!  If you think that all the talk about this so-called law of attraction is baloney, then it is. But I would be willing to bet that you believe the old cliche's about the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.  What do you really think that means?  Plain and simple, the rich attract more richness, and the poor attract more poorness!

As for me, I feel there is no harm in thinking the good thoughts, so I am going to use my time and money for the "SUNNY" days that are right here in the now.  I am going to ride my turquoise bicycle to the beach and do a-bun-DANCE in the sand with the sunshine overhead. Blessed be.

You know the old cliche', "always a bridesmaid, never a bride".  That is the analogy that best fits my life. It seems that I have started this and started that, whatever has peaked my interest at the moment, but I never seem to follow through or finish or "commit" to any thing for very long. I am never the bride, because I can't stay interested enough to commit for life. 

I was born under the Sagittarius sign, which is best known as a wanderer and traveler, so maybe that is part of my make-up that always has me seeing the grass is always greener anywhere but where I am at. 

 I have read, studied, subscribed, purchased and on and on, every book, CD, DVD, movie, seminar, etc. that I am always sure is "The One" that will change my life.  So what have I gained from all this?  

 I am looking for clarity and direction and the discovery of my true passion.  What really drives me and excites me and gets me out of bed in the morning raring to go????? 

 I believe that I have a fear of finally committing  to something and it will be the wrong choice. Or committing to one thing, and then I have to give up all the other things that interest me? I have taken all the tests and quizzes about likes, dis-likes, personality, but to no avail.

So, you may ask, what is all this rambling about? Do I finally get to the moral of the story?


I am just going to keep on being a seeker and follow whatever the moment brings me.  I am going to relax and stop worrying about "living my bliss', or "finding my passion".  Frankly, I am a little bit tired of hearing the word "BLISS".. It is starting to become annoying. (but I do still like the word "passion"so I will not rule that out of my life).

If anyone out there can relate to this post or has any suggestions for me, I would love to hear from you.  Until then I am just going to blog away about whatever catches my mind at the moment, and I will stop worrying about catching the "bouquet".  The bouquet is probably red and pink roses anyway, and I prefer "yellow".  See what I mean!!!!!!!
