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 dictionary.com 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.
