I've had an interesting few weeks of miscommunications, direct messages I can't fully decipher, feeling deaf and out of sorts OR fully tuned in, whichever end of the duality stick chosen in a moment of time. On the other hand, it's been the best few weeks ever. One of our close friends stayed with us for a holiday from Ireland, then our family had quality weeks on another holiday in the historic towns of Kalgoorlie and Westonia, West Australia. The clever architecture and history just spun us out, completely, especially visiting the old Orabanda Hotel and the Broad Arrow Tavern. I wanted to press the Pause Button on Life and stay in those places for at least a week.
My friend from Ireland and I live in different worlds now but we are truly connected by our many shared experiences and all the Love attached therein, each of us patiently trying to take in the other's world for the hard of hearing - my friend doing a much better job than me, I suspect. When we drove her to the airport to say Goodbye, I hugged her and couldn't let go. Making us both cry!
To top it off, I had another spin out experience where someone, a very important someone in the emotional scheme of things, was reviewing my book... Fingers. Crossed.
What is it with listening, speaking and the consequences of smart body language? We regularly receive signals about what another person wants from us, or expects, albeit covered up in something or other. I've heard the Chill Out statements of Let It Go, but Hey, living in this divine world of Free Will and Multiple Choices it's not so easy to move through the everyday puzzles OR Sit on the Fence. To. Scream. In. Silence. Only to then turn on the Laptop and read some of Sandeep's genius poetry and Relax once more.
A fine example of the conundrum of a Speakeasy is around my new Book, Creating with a Bang. I have been told by a number of reviewers that it is an academic read. Some reviewers have given me feedback that they loved the start of the book (and every single page), "best piece of writing ever," and others have said they could not get into the start of the book and where the hell was I going at the beginning of the Story! I value ALL the feedback and have learned how we are sensitively engaging so diversely from our own points of view. By the way, if you enjoyed this book, I would be thrilled if you have five spare minutes to write a Review on Goodreads.com or Amazon.com or ReadersFavourite.com. Just Sayin'.
At the end of the day, does it matter what anyone else thinks? It depends on your opinion. As an author, we are writing our own story in the hopes that the reader can identify with and enjoy the world from our perspective (in my case I am showing readers how our family's lives were changed forever by simple changes, not to mention saving us a fortune by accident in the process). It is not a quick fix. It demands attention but the life-saving rewards are indisputable and solid.
Why should we duplicate what others may think is best for us? Or how they think we should have written our story! No. Maybe those two last sentences are not quite accurate as communication is a journey of constant elevation and growth. We all have our own unique talent to share, even you! And. Me.
I had a chat with my dear friend George yesterday who intimated projecting High Vibes and Let the Outcome Go. No more trying to control the end result of anything. I feel back to normal today after our chat and sitting in the Love Bubble with him for a while. Tonight I'll hop into the Love Bubble with Hot Henry who has the answers to everything. By. Allowing. All. Around. Him. To. Be. Free.
Be Brave. Be Bold. Be You. A Multi-Directional Being of ever-changing Light Within...
