The Answer

While I was in Sebago a few weeks ago and became certain (click here to go to Certainty blog), I was shown in no uncertain terms that the Universe is constantly listening and responding to our thoughts, words, conversations- and neither it’s frequency in occurrence nor it's chilling accuracy have waned since. The coolest part really is the proof in the conversations. This absolutely incredible gift of knowing we aren't alone doesn’t just come to me privately. They are also very often often given to my counterparts in conversation to the same degree of AWESOMENESS that they are presented to me-simultaneously (just like the story of the simultaneous Gratitude/Gift Moment with me and Joe in Sebago). When presented in this way there is no doubt, it's certain.

Certainty- no uncertain terms.

So, it’s been a really interesting period of time here , as any of you who are with me on FB have seen. We’ve experienced so much love and appreciation and joy, but for as much as I share and show, there’s at least just as much that I don’t-same as you I would assume. After a week filled with family and friends from near and far at our home, my oldest daughter went off to college five days ago, our middle child starts his junior year and my youngest preparing to become a Freshman on Monday. We’ve had two significant (all my kids were in significant relationships) breakups in the last week and there have been some situations that would be considered heavy take place as well. So, needless to say, our home has been filled with some really remarkable conversations and a wide range of emotions lately and today the confirmation of being heard, and the amazing gift of being guided or answered came to my whole family! And I truly hope that many of you who spent time here with us will receive the blessing of knowing that your conversation (even if it was a conversation with your Self!) was heard and is being responded to here!!

This morning Joe started redesigning the “teen-suite” for the boys (thanks for the game table Uncle Sean! Can we keep it? LOL) and in the process removed a chiminea that sat on a brick hearth, here since we moved in almost 3 years ago. Underneath was found an 8x10 piece of light weight metal or stone of some kind and I don't think there's a question, pondering, or conversation we've had here in this time of uncertainty and new beginnings that isn't addressed or confirmed in this treasure:


(definition: something that is needed or wanted)

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love, for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment,it is as perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

Note: Our copy has a slightly different ending than this original composition. For unknown reasons (perhaps copyright laws) The second to last line on ours reads “Be careful.”, not “Be cheerful”.
