Today was the last day of a four week spiritual enrichment course that I’ve been attending at the Unity Church of Hawaii titled, Quantum Success. It is based on the book, Quantum Success by Bobbi DePorter.
I had been in Hawaii for three weeks already and was beginning to get a sense that if I am to evolve in the direction that is most in line with my heart’s desires, I would need to examine and perhaps change, deeply held thought patterns and behaviors. The course sounded interesting and it was offered as a practicum, so love offerings in whatever amount were acceptable, but what really caught my attention was the following line: “Do you want to adapt quickly, learn better, and never fear failure again?” I know that it was no coincidence I saw that flyer on the bulletin board four Sundays ago.
Having completed Oprah and Deepak’s Desire and Destiny meditation series as well as the Chopra Center 8 week Happiness Series, I had already identified my desires. I had several “Aha” moments throughout the course, but it was during this last week that I set specific intentions with confidence, detaching from any specific outcome, and trusting the Universe that they will manifest in my life. It was brought to my attention today from my discussion partner, that the Universe is already manifesting my intentions and that it is up to me to remain aware. Ah, yes, how often do I live in that future mindset, missing out on the present moment miracles and blessings because my present reality does not match what I envisioned.
In one of the chapters, titled Key Catalyst: Keep your Balance, Bobbi DePorter points out that we won’t always devote equal time to each aspect of our lives, but what is important is that we “give things that matter the amount of time and energy that creates the greatest sense of fulfillment.” Well, one of the activities that I truly enjoy is cooking. I was in need of some nourishing soup and inspired by a can of Goya black beans, I blended two black bean recipes I found on the internet and created this bowl of yummy delicious goodness pictured below. I even narrated what I was doing as though I was on my own cooking show. I’m smiling right now, thinking to myself, “yes reader, you can admit you do this too.”
And this brings me to the question of the day: What things create the greatest sense of fulfillment in your life? How will you be devoting time to these things today?
With love and gratitude my friends. May you have a wonderful week and be aware of the daily miracles in your life.
