For the past few weeks I’ve felt my powers of concentration and manifestation growing significantly stronger.
It was awe inspiring to witness. And it was also a little scary. Ok, I take that back. It got very scary.
As Spiderman’s uncle said, “with great power comes great responsibility.”
Abraham Lincoln said it a different way, “Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.”
I’ve overcome many types of adversity. But how will I handle power? Will I make sure to think of the best and highest good? What if the watchman at the gate fails? I don’t think I could bear disappointing anyone.
Which is worse, trying and failing or never trying at all? DUH!
Ok so it’s absolutely worth it to try. But how high do I want to reach? I’m no beauty queen, but I’m such an idealist…it’s hard not to aim for the big daddy: world peace.
GUESS THAT MOVIE
“What’s the one thing our society needs?” “That would be harsher punishment for parole violators Stan.” (crickets chirping)…
“And…World Peace.” (massive applause) <– Can anyone guess what movie that’s from?
The basic necessity of life is to be able to imagine what you want it to look like. I’m going back to the basics. All the experiences I’ve had up until this point will factor in to what my perfect world will look like. I want you all to rest easy knowing that I feel my perfect world will not take away from anyone, in fact I feel strongly it will add to the lives of others. And please, while I’m dreaming, feel free to judge me but please hold your tongue if you respect my right to choose. Would you stomp the dreams of a child? Does it make it more right to stomp someone’s dreams because they’re going to encounter adversity? A good way to find out if someone is serious. Tell them there’s a 95% chance they’re going to fail. Ask them if they still want to do it.
“Alicia, There’s a 95% chance you’re not going to see humanity attain world peace. Would you still like to attempt it?”
So, “here I go again on my own…going down the only road I’ve ever known!”
Just KIDDING. I’m going down a new road. A road I’ve never been down. And I’m not just traveling down it. I’m skipping along it, while whistling Dixie. What a gift to have this life!!!
Until next week,
