Let's Be Clear - Or Not

Something is happening.

I don't know what it is. It could simply be finals. It could be because I'm preparing for a vacation. It could simply be over-introspection.

Several irons in the fire as they say. Many things to think about. I'm trying to actually focus on them rather than pushing them out with avoidance.

Could that be a light way down there? Really? If I squint I can see it.


I have a group of online buds I've hung out with for, can it be, closing in on 10 years? The core group that is going on now I've been hanging with for over five to be sure.

An AWESOME group of women btw. Each one more different than the last. I can't even describe to you how different these women, (girls? ladies? guys? I don't like any of these descriptors) scrap that, friends are. We live all over the place. Literally. We are all at different places in our lives.

Yet there is this core of similarities. This bedrock of belief that keeps us with each other. I love it and find it fascinating.

So - at that place - there has been much talk about manifesting.

Here is a definition of manifest:

manifest late 14c., "clearly revealed," from L. manifestus "caught in the act, plainly apprehensible, clear, evident," from manus "hand" (see manual) + -festus "struck" (cf. second element of infest). The noun sense of "ship's cargo" is from 1706. The verb sense of "to show plainly" is late 14c., from L. manifestare .

Broken down to the simplest idea (that I am understanding) is that you must see it to be it. See it to have it. See it to touch it.

I do believe this conversation may have been what is sparking me.

Right now I'm hanging on to the side of the car while climbing up to the peak. I know at the top I'll see down and all the scary shit that is in front of me.

Oooooo, I hate rollercoasters! Sometimes you just have to get on and hang on.

My favorite saying is an Arab proverb "The eye does not see until the mind wakes it with a question." We have to be looking at old things with new eyes, see the new things going on around us. Not just drive/run by with blinders, just gettin to the destination, but experiencing everything along the way. It may have been there every other day, but you actually "see" it today. Get our brain around it, examine it, digest it, see how it fits.

Don't we all need to do that.

Please teach me how to manifest. I find it all quite confusing & disorienting.

I need a vacation.

Deborah said...

RJ - don't be confused because that would be two of us. You should be in this head with me if you think reading my blog is bad. :)

Ms A - Let's design some blog shirts. We could start a biz.

deb - I keep thinking about that quote

DDG - manifesting is confusing, I'm certain I am doing it wrong. I bet I manifested that. Come on vacay with us!
