When we set out on this journey, this adventure, we have everything we need to complete it.  And yet, it’s the stop-overs, and the resting pauses, which truly make it worthwhile.

             Often, we think we’re in charge.  Ha!  Not even close.  We did, however, chart out the basic map.  We just don’t always pay attention to it.  Which then leads us off-course.

             And ya know, that’s fine, too.  It absolutely is about the traveling, not the destination.  Today’s message though, is a reminder of this.  The journeying and the side roads, the movement and the stopping.

Back On Track

             Our course is far from direct.  It can’t be!  We’d never learn anything that way.  But, some parts?  They can totally zoom us ahead a few steps.  Like in Candyland, when you get the “good” card, and you’re magically transported to the castle, flying past Queen Frostine and Princess Lolly.

             That’s what we’re talking about today, those Bullet Train hops.  We need to be aware of them, they do happen.  Especially when we’ve been paying close attention, and really allowing our lessons to sink in.

             They are as important as our standstill moments, the ones we’ll soon be moving out of (if we haven’t already).  Each part has value, that’s the point.  Going or staying, we have to acknowledge how important each aspect is.

             Making our way around the card altar, now that we’re moving again, we’ve come up to this perfectly validating draw.

don't settle

“Set Your Sights Higher  ~

‘Increase your standards, and expect more for yourself.

Don’t settle!’

This card indicates that you have been trying to rationalize that some situation is okay . . . when it isn’t.  You’ve settled for less than you desire, and for much less than you deserve. 

You don’t need to compromise!  Heaven will help you heal, or will replace troubling situations in your life.  All you need to do is ask for help, and then adhere to the guidance that results.

Take time today to visualize and dream about your true heart’s desires.  Don’t worry about being disappointed – you deserve a great life, and you have the power and the Divine assistance to accomplish it!

Fear and worries slow down your manifestation, so keep releasing all cares and doubts.

You may feel intimidated by moving up to a higher plateau in your journey; however, you have the reassurance of the Universe that you’re ready.  Reach for the stars, know that you are qualified and deserving of these gifts.

Open your arms to receive them!”

There were LOTS more behind me as I lined up this quick shot…..

             ……. but these were the prettiest.  Well, nearly all of them were delightful to look at.  I can’t believe how well the entire thing turned out!  (Even if I had to make a few substitutions.)

  1. I tried a “swineapple” on the smoker last night. Pineapple, pealed and cored, stuffed with country style ribs, draped with bacon. Turned out pretty good.

    1. Ooooooo, now that sounds interesting!

      I just read about an oven-roasted cabbage draped in bacon! You quarter it, then cut those wedges in half, cook hot.

      Seriously, if it weren’t for pork, I’d totally be a very good vegetarian………
