I live in a huge house on the lake. It can sleep about 20 people and it is obviously far too much for one single guy. Frankly, I would probably be happier living in a little 100 square foot yurt, yet for many reasons I have been unable to sell this house, the Voyage to Betterment House. A lot of the miracles that were caught on film for all to see, were filmed in the house, and revealed in the film Voyage to Betterment. With the recent influx of the energy of the Buddha Relics, I was wondering what was up, so have been asking for guidance & clarity everyday for over a month.
I had lunch with a friend yesterday, and just out of nowhere, he says, I've been thinking about your work lately... and after about 5 minutes, in a nutshell he verbalized the essence of the thoughts that had been coming to mind over the last few weeks, that I haven't shared with anyone. It was confirmation that what was coming to mind serve the highest good. Christians call this guidance, the Holy Spirit, and sometimes it comes through the voice of a friend.
This morning I went for a jog and some things were coming to mind. When I returned home I went upstairs to canvass the area and rooms, in order to visualize a way to accommodate the home to conform to the guidance received while jogging. After about an hour a plan emerged, that felt in my gut to be fairly complete, warm, fuzzy and all. The entire upstairs, would be an area of silence, for silent meditation, rest and healing. So I looked at the stairwell and thought I am going to have to be a sign there to advise guests that the upstairs is an area of silence.
I then took a shower and was drawn to take a drive into the city. Often when I jump in my Jeep, I have no idea where I am about to drive to. I sit in silence for a minute, and ask to be taken to wherever serves the highest good. So it comes to mind to drive to a certain home furnishings retail store. I have been clearing my house of stuff & no interest in buying more house stuff. So it felt odd to be going to a retail store, yet without thinking much more about it, I went.
I'm at the store and I am walking up and down the aisles watching all the people in there doing their Christmas shopping. I looked at some rugs and thought a new rug in the new year may help fulfill that vision. So I assumed that is why I was drawn to go there. Then I was walking along 3 aisles of picture frames and art works and at a certain spot it felt like I landed at the target spot. I looked through the art work in front of me. I had no choice but to buy this piece.
