Divine Sips

6 03 2010

“If you want more of something, give it your attention even before it comes into full bloom.  The flower will not be far behind.”  Alan Cohen, A Daily Dose of Sanity.  March 6.

If I were to take one lesson of Alan’s so far out of this book and give it to someone in a deep pit of personal hell, this is the one I would copy, laminate and give to them.  Here is why;  My personal journey with bipolar for many years was nothing short of horrendous.  My failures, my dramas, and the constant anxiety and chaos I generated on a daily basis, almost got me many times.  It was a lesson like this one many years ago that helped me turn a very significant corner on my journey.  When I began to focus on the pinpoint of light in my life, an ok moment, a successful completion of a task, a meaningful connection with someone where I didn’t walk away feeling like the psycho, they began to occur more often.  This really is a vital and important ongoing lesson.  If I focus on all the crappy coffee I’ve been served or created, chances are, my next cup will taste awful as well.  If I concentrate on all the perfect cups of coffee I’ve ever had the pleasure of being served or brewing, than chances are divine sips are not far off.  This seems real simple, but is it?  I encourage you to find the simplest joy or moment of light and focus on it today.  If you are in a dark place, know for a moment, I am cheering for you, and chances are others who know you are as well.  How committed are we to our problems and darkness, how committed are we to allowing creating joy in our life?  Sometimes it’s as simple as what we allow our minds to focus on in the moment.

Seeing good,

George
