I just love this – it makes me feel so much better! So thank you Abraham.
Being a Taurean I tend to ask advice and then do my own thing, and when given free advice I tend to say ‘No I don’t think so!’ But I’m learning.
I remember as a parent governor of the school, where my eldest attended, the Headmaster asked me what he should do about a parent who complained that her son would never stick at anything, trying one after school club this week and another the next, running through the whole gambit of available options.
I could only relate that we had the greatest joy as parents when the girls wanted to try various instruments to see which one suited them best and encouraged them at every stage to try new things and get as much experience before making a firm choice.
From the age of three the youngest danced and ballet was her love, but encouraged by the ballet school, and us, to try a musical instrument she went for a silver flute which seemed to go very well with the ‘Magic Flute’ and all!
The eldest followed me on the piano and supplemented the ivories with the liquorice stick of the clarinet, soon however to be replaced by a much sexier golden saxophone! No problem, and briefly dabbled with the guitar if memory serves. The fact that the piano and the dance are all that was retained by them is just as it should be. They both now teach.
So the purpose of these recollections is only to reinforce the message from Abraham and agree wholeheartedly with his advice to say ‘Yes’.
And here it is:
Say yes to whatever it is. Because if you say yes to it and then you get in the middle of it, and you say, “Uh oh, this isn’t really turning out the way I wanted it to,” then out of that is born another desire. And as you say yes to that, then it turns out. And you say, “Well, it’s still not quite right.” So you have another desire… Until eventually you get it exactly right. You cannot get it wrong. No creation is ever complete. Just do it.
The moral, if you need one, is don’t believe those who would call you grasshopper or fly-by-night do your own thing, whether you are 9 or 90, try everything until you get the happiness and pleasure you so richly deserve.
Don’t thing of completion let desire rule. Be happy, Love David
