welcome to the maiden voyage of my blog!!
anyone who knows me also knows that I am a big fan of ralph waldo emerson, and, today I was reminded of his essay entitled “compensation”…….
basically, emerson says that, when one thing leaves our lives, something else comes in, to compensate for that loss……
this is also a spiritual law that I had forgotten, as well as a principle of science (a void must be filled……and all things must be in balance)….
it’s funny how my mind forgot all these important things, just because I lost a favorite site on the internet!…..
for over a month now, I have been stressed, depressed, and upset by losing this site, because I had friends there, and did my writing there…..it felt like I had lost so much that was near and dear to me…..I felt lonely, and felt too uninspired to write…..
today, I got really lucky, because a dear and trusted friend of mine in Kansas sent me an email, reminding me of who I am, what I do, and how much I actually have in my life….and she reminded me how life goes on, despite all losses, despite all changes……….
and so, I sat and meditated upon all of the things she had said….
and I found the real truth about how life goes on, despite all losses and disappointments…….
life goes on BETTER, when we recognize the spiritual and scientific laws that help to govern our little worlds…..because, when we understand these principles, we also open ourselves up for positive changes…..we then ALLOW the new and better things to come into our lives…..and they start coming in more rapidly than you could ever imagine!!
so, good-bye to the old, hello to the new—–
hello word press
hello to new friends that I now know are coming my way
hello to new possibilities, new ways of thinking, new joy
and many thanks to a wonderful friend, who always inspires me to think in new and better ways……..
until next time…….
I wish you blessings and abundance in all things
