This is taken from a post I did three years ago. It was my message for today and I thought I would share it with you. It turned out to be a great reminder for me and I hope it is for you also. Peace and Blessings
He came into my world somewhat unwelcomed
Like many blessings he came in disguise
Wearing camouflage pants and a motorcycle vest
How could I know that he had a heart of gold?
It took some time before I saw him
One day I looked and he was in my corner
Even after we fell out big
There he was standing in support
As the years rolled by, I could see him much more clearly
This man who came and loved my mother
He also loved my sister, and loved me
and became a grandfather to our children
Everywhere he went they seemed to love him
People who saw beyond the camouflage pants
They saw a child, a father, a brother, a friend,
and a man who possessed a golden heart
In loving memory of Charles Toodle

It may come in way that is very surprising and somewhat other worldly.
It may come in a dream, but when it comes it really strikes you, and makes you feel like the dream was real on some level, and trying to tell you something.
The dream may even feel so good that the feeling is way beyond what would be your normal experience of feeling good.
It may be that you get an idea, and right in the midst of this idea the whole world seems different.
You could be in a situation and all of a sudden, you feel like you are being told something.
What you are being told may come over the radio, or be relayed in conversation by someone, but it seems as though it is talking directly to what is on your mind.
It could be right in the middle of your conversation. What the other person is saying so profound, that is seems like incredible knowledge form above and suddenly makes you see things in a new and different way.
You may feel totally different and comforted in the midst of great difficulty.
You may find that what you are going through at the time might seem to tie into something else, quite perfectly, and you can’t believe the way it fits together. It’s like you are being told something by the whole Universe.
While all of this is happening it’s like you are there, but not there, perhaps like you are looking at the situation from afar. The world may even seem to slow down as the information comes your way.
These are times to take notice. The Universe is getting your attention.
It is not until tomorrow becomes today that you will see your dreams come true
If you can realize today is the day, you will enter a whole new dimension
When today becomes the day, now becomes the time to act
When now becomes the time to act, it all happens in an instant
You will be living the life you always wanted to live, being the person you wanted to be, doing the things you have been wanting to do.
Why? Because somewhere along the way you decided now is the time, I can not wait.
So start right here, where ever you are, with whatever you have, giving whatever you can, letting go of it having to be a certain way.
And what do you know? Tomorrow becomes today
You are doing the things you would do tomorrow, today.
The resources magically show up
The fears you had, they go away
The results you have, blow your mind
People don’t know you,
You barely know yourself
You ask for guidance, you move, you act
You have entered a new dimension, living the life of tomorrow
Whether you know it or not you are constantly telling yourself a story. And whatever the story is that you are telling yourself greatly determines how you show up in this world. Not only are you telling yourself this story, but you are also telling the outside world and the Universe this story. If you can change the story you can change your life. For example I watch a television show that has great story lines but it also shows anger and competition. Not only does this particular show focus on this but as I watch it, I at times find myself getting angry while watching. I may even find myself saying “he should just beat him down or if that was me I would do this.” When this happens, I am telling myself that this is how the world is. You have to watch your back, and if this happens to me, I will do this. This becomes my story. The Universe says “Oh this is what you would like, worry, enemies, and competition. I will help you create a situation so you can live this out.” When I see this happening I finally wise up and stop watching for a while and flood my world with more uplifting movies.
Here is another example. You see something you like and you tell yourself “I can’t buy that. It costs too much.” You may also be telling yourself I would buy it if I had the money, but I can’t. You have just told yourself a story about how you can’t afford such things, and the Universe responds. But you can change your story. I used to buy very expensive watches. In recent times I have told myself that I have too many responsibilities to spend large amounts on a watch. But here lately I changed my story. I started looking at watches again and told myself I will only buy one if I see an expensive one that I like at an unbelievable price, like half off. Then if I had the money at the time, and I mean a surplus, I would have no choice. Little did I know I changed my story from I can’t buy those anymore. to if an incredible deal comes, I may have the money as a surplus and buy it.
Last week it happened. A friend told me about a jewelry store that was moving and having a big sale. I stopped in one day, just in case it was an incredible deal on a watch that I like. I did not see much of a deal and began to walk out. That is when one of the owners stopped me and my sales person and said “have you seen this one.” It was a Montblanc, at one half off. This was one of only two brands I had been looking at consistently off and on over the past three years. You never, never see them at that price. And guess what? This year has been great with my business, and I had an unusual surplus. I even talked to another watch store owner at a totally different store about the deal. He could not believe it and at first even thought it was a fake until I told him the name of the store I saw it at. He then said that they are too reputable to have a fake. I ended up buying the watch. And my situation totally fit the new story I told myself. “I buy expensive ultra luxury watches from time to time. I get them at incredible deals that fall in my lap. When the incredible deal comes, it seems to come at just the right time when I have more money laying around than usual, so I don’t even miss the money leaving.” I like that story. And the Universe responds.
Needing no thing from no one,
and trusting that the Universe will provide,
I can enjoy my trip around the world
How can I have a care in the world
when the Universe gives me everything I need?
When you don’t need anything from anyone
you understand that the whole world is at your disposal
With the entire world at your disposal,
whatever you need just shows up
Understanding this, it is a good idea to go within
Going within is a secret to letting go,
and having everything magically show up
Peace and Blessings
