Stop. Look. Appreciate.

Posted on December 29, 2009. Filed under: HowTo, Musings, Philosophy |

I tend to find inspiration in unlikely places. For instance: My firewall software. Whenever I go to a website it doesn’t recognize, a little window comes up asking how I want to treat the web address. I have three choices, and I can choose one, two, or all three. These are the choices: >Remember. >Trust. >Allow.

Remember means I want the program to make the same choice I’m about to make, next time I visit the site, without asking me first. Trust tells the program that I’ve been friendly with the website in the past, and I know we play nicely together. Allow is bit harder to understand. It means, sort of, “Let’s go there this time, and see how it goes.”

Remember. Trust. Allow.  I like to apply these principles to the rest of my life, not just websites. I remember who I am—an unlimited being who can create in ways still unimagined. I trust myself, mostly, to make the right decisions, even if they seem illogical to others. I allow—everything. The thing that gets in the way for most of us is our own resistence. Resistence occurs when we complain about something, when we look around and don’t like what we see (and decide to chant a soliloquy about it) or when we’re feeling undeserving.

I’m arriving at the last few days of my “Twelve Days of Solstice” Introspection/Blog-spilling, and here are today’s quality and gift:

Day NINE: The Quality of Appreciation; the Gift of Resources.

As any student of New Age Woo-woo philosophy knows (and I mean that in the best way; honest!) the more we appreciate, the more there is to appreciate. I’ve seen this in my own life so many times I no longer question it. I only have to remember to DO it! 🙂

When I Remember, Trust, and Allow, I Appreciate my Resources, and those that are on their way. Good resources to you this day.
