It's Wednesday, October 7th, and the last Line of Gate 48:6; Self-fulfillment. An undiminishable resource. The theme: give and you will receive. Can you picture how that shows up?
Today I ran errands all over the place: downtown Chester, Springfield, North Springfield, Perkinsville, and Claremont (there is something very satisfying about getting everything done in one trip!)
My first surprise came in the mail: a small portable portal from Carolyn. What a lovely memento of a magical day...
Have you been inspired to create a small door of your own?
During the drive, I would glance down and smile. The green door goes to a creative place and activates imagination.
It was so touching... Thank you!
Then, when I returned the two futon covers I had tried (which did not fit the newly painted living room) I found the one I had pictured in my mind's eye.
Has that ever happened to you? You can picture something in your imagination...and if it's not exactly aligned with what you see, it feels a little off?
When I got it home and on, it felt so satisfying......as did walking through the 'new office.'
I'm learning to trust my vision. Sometimes I can't seem to get things quite aligned - so I keep working until it's like I've pictured it in my mind's eye. This is (self-) fulfilling!
Of course, someone else might come along and see it completely differently...my vision might shift.
Do you see the duck? Or the rabbit?
Whether perspectives, advice, energy (in all its various forms) - we are constantly giving and receiving.
Becoming gracious about giving and receiving (even when it's not exactly as we may have imagined/hoped/wanted) is part of picturing the both/and: truly, an 'undiminishable resource.'
