Yes, indeed, in my life it is all about me.
Who am I and how did I get here?
I have spent my life wondering, and seeking, what was the “best” way. The most efficient use of money, the most important principles of parenting, the best route for running errands, the true “Truth”, etc.
As a young person, I thought the true “Truth” was to save the world with political activism, but it turned out that I couldn’t find the political philosophy that embraced everyone, and no matter which one I looked at, only a small number of people were content with it, but a lot of others got really mad about it.
Later I thought if I couldn’t save the world, I could at least heal individuals from specific ills, and became a nurse. I was disappointed to find that not only did I disagree with the idea that healing had to be done with chemicals and surgery, but many of the people I wanted to help wouldn’t or couldn’t follow through with that model either. Gradually I moved into alternative “healing”: massage, yoga, Reiki, flower essences, herbs and essential oils, etc. I particularly liked Traditional Chinese Medicine, because it made room for intangibles like Spirit and emotions, and stated that there was no food/herb/activity that was inherently bad, simply ones that were only appropriate for some, and then only in the right degree and at the right time. Yet, even with alternative medicine, there was a piece that was wrong. It was the same story with different characters.
For many years I had been searching through spiritual solutions, as well. Psychology, astrology, reincarnation, Judaism, Buddhism, Unitarianism, extra-terrestrials, angels, totem animals, Seth, Barbara Marciniak’s Pleiadians Plus, Louise Hays, “etcetera, etcetera, and so forth and so on”.* No matter how parts of a philosophy captured my mind and/or heart, it was obviously not universal, and therefore not the “Truth”.
All people, each unique and no unifying factor? Is there no common factor? Of course there is. We all want to love and be loved, to belong, to do what we love to do, to be happy…to be free to make our own choices. At last, unique choices for unique people. What finally made it come clear to me? The last piece of the puzzle was reading/listening to Abraham-Hicks’ teachings of the Law of Attraction (see “What do I mean by the Law of Attraction?”) .
It explained to me not only how there can be different “Truths” for everyone, but how to “Create my own Reality” like Seth never could teach me. The crucial point was their concept of the EGS, the Emotional Guidance System. The uniquely right choice for me, right now, feels good. Period. Just as I have eyes to guide my feet around a hole in the path, a nose to help me determine if my food is good **, I also have an inner guide, my emotional state, to help me make decisions that thinking by itself doesn’t answer.
At this point, I would like to make it clear that belief in the Law of Attraction (LoA) is not required to benefit from this website. The reason is that I have gotten to the understanding that I do not use the LoA to achieve cars, money, success or health. I use it to help me feel good about everything that comes into my life. I accept the LoA teaching that says that feeling good as much of the time as possible means that I will attract all those other things, but I am satisfied if I can feel good now. And if you see the power of feeling good now, most of the time, this website can benefit you. If you choose to. Because the Truth is that we all want freedom, and in your life, it’s all about you.
