Fishing For Soul

Angling for Spiritual Reconnection

This is Nothing

Every once in a while I sit down to write this blog and it seems like nothing will come out of me, nothing will get written and posted.

For this piece I spent some time looking through books, searching the internet, and asking myself, “What’s the topic?”

I noticed at some point that I was not following my impulse to just allow my fingers to move over the keys and see what shows up on the computer screen. It occurred to me that perhaps nothing would get written if I didn’t follow that impulse, and sure enough, ‘nothing’ is what appeared.

“Each and every day there is nothing waiting for you. Each and every day you wake up to a world that expects nothing from you. Each and every day there is an entire galaxy of vastness that is never in need of being filled up.

Each and every day the world sings your song.

Each and every day there is just you, with nothing to do, nothing to say, nothing to think, nothing to be. You are as busy, as bored, as happy, angry or sad as you say you are.

What do you think? Is that enough? Are you enough?”

I’ll admit I read that many times before I felt the truth and strength of those ‘channeled’ words.

So be it.

Monday’s affirmation: I follow my impulses.

Today I am grateful for the nothing that is everything, for the illusions I create, for the healing power of gratitude and forgiveness, for allowing myself to let others be who they are without judgement or expectation, for a world of innocence, curiosity and wonder, for my book agent, editor and publisher, for being open all ways, for the love of friends and family, clients, co-workers, neighbors and strangers.

Thanks and peace to all!

Joe

This is so beautiful and has me in tears. Yes, you have described the writing process beautifully! A channeling. And grateful, beyond belief, for that which I have and that which I am. Thanks ❤ Love. Kristy

Thanks Kristy. I’m happy that it resonated with you. I never know who is going to show up and write my blog. It’s liberating when I truly allow myself to ‘let go and let god.’

Peace!

Joe
