Hey, would somebody please tell me where August went? It was the 3rd, and then I got back from a trip and it was like the 19th, and suddenly even September is almost over. Life moves fast. How about you?
I find that as the years seem to fly by faster, I try to move, develop and grow faster. There is so much I yet want to experience in this short, very finite human experience I am having. And that has led me to being quite selective about the people in my life, the stimulus in my life, the environments I expose myself to, and the learning I seek out.
It’s not even a conscious thing any longer. It just seems to happen naturally. This blog community is a virtual pipeline, funneling me ever more people who are on a pathway of personal growth and enlightenment.
And I find that those kinds of people find me in many other conduits, such as through my church, friends I already have and other avenues. So I am not complaining, I have wonderful people in my life. But I had to create a vacuum for that to happen. Which is a nice spiritual way to say that I blew off my old deadbeat, lack-obsessed, victim friends...
Conversations about how many Long Island iced teas you consumed at the club last night, who is cheating on whom, or that include the phrase, “What I really I felt like telling him…” no longer interest me.
I’m not interested in hearing how your bitch ex-wife is hounding you for child support, how unsympathetic your parole officer is, or what assholes the electric company people are because they shut off your power for non-payment.
So let’s just say that I am still waiting for the divine light to shine in some of those people. Now that doesn’t mean that they are not divine or possess consciousness. But I find that the level of consciousness they are currently at is not attractive to me. And I don’t want them in my life while they are at that consciousness. And truth be told, I don’t think they want me in theirs any longer.
So let’s look at that deeper tomorrow. Until then, please share how you deal with this situation in your life.
