“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade wind in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain
Hello all you beautiful, wonderful people.
Our dreams are coming true in front of our eyes. It is still hard to believe that we have our boat. It doesn’t matter that it’s a little small or that it needs some work – it’s ours. To me that’s like having a home without a mortgage, freedom from the conventional bounds where we can bring in the ropes and the world is ours to explore.
The Universe to quote one of my favorite authors Pam Grout ‘is strangely accommodating.’ I have started putting this new understanding of an accommodating Universe into action. I found this out about a year ago and just started focusing on sailing and we now have our boat so I tried it with smaller things like:
While Steve is away, we have needed firewood which I have to get myself. I started off using his chainsaw but it is a massive thing with a 28″ bar – SO HEAVY! It’s not that I can’t cut with it but I prefer not too. So we were only getting smaller wood that I cut with the drop saw but that wasn’t keeping us warm enough. So I put it to the Universe. I said something along the lines of “Hey Universe, I have heard that you are as reliable as the electricity in my house, that I can plug into it at any time and know that it will provide. So I need to do another firewood run, it is meant to snow for the next 4 days and I want to find enough firewood to last at least that long. I am not taking the chainsaw so you need to provide. I’m leaving now and expect to have the wood I need.”
So we left without the chainsaw and just took the wood splitter and you know what – we found enough firewood to fill the back of our bus and it lasted us a week and a half with the fire on 24/7. I’m not saying that it was the easiest thing to collect but it was right there ready for us to split and pack.
There might be something to this Universe thing making dreams come true after all. I still haven’t had anyone put an offer on our house yet (even though it’s not for sale) but I know it’s coming. According to the rumors it has to come – that’s how the thing works.
So to you beautiful people out there, if this Universe can provide me with things as small as some wood and as big as a boat, It can provide all your desires from the smallest things to the biggest. To quote another inspirational person Esther Hicks ‘It is just as easy to manifest a castle as a button.‘
The most important thing I have learnt in all this is to laugh, be silly and have fun like a child again.
So have a fantastic day all and know that your dreams will and are coming true.
