Lessons Learned on the Road of Life

“That’s enough!”

“But Dad, I was just trying to help!”

“You’ve helped enough already!”

That’s my son and I having a conversation, lately.  There is no reason – and I mean it is totally unreasonable – that I should ever react this way to anything he does or does not do. After all, my perception is just that – my perception. It has very little to do with what might actually be going on in this life. My experience is colored by my thoughts about it. I KNOW that! I wrote a book about it!

“You’re creating this scene just as your son is creating his own little world there in his room.

“Yes, I had that thought. But surely I am not responsible for my wife’s indifference?”

“Is that what you truly think? Have you been willing to go deeply beneath the possible motives you might have for creating such a response?

“Well, I have certainly looked at it, and I don’t see how I could be responsible for HER actions.’

“You are responsible for what you perceive, however.”


Who believes that this is at least partly true? What IS the truth about this life we live? Are we making it up as we go along or is there some sort of Divine Plan that we are only being let in on a bit at a time…? That doesn’t seem fair, does it? I want to know the truth now! You? Let’s look in the book….

“You do not have to wait for the Truth. You have to ask for it, now, wholly desire it, and it will reveal itself in everything that you perceive.”


Wow! Who wrote this book, anyway?! But it IS logical, isn’t it? If what we perceive tends to be a reflection of what we think or intend, then holding an INTENTION to know the Truth should show up in most everything we perceive, right? I know it’s a little circular, but it seems right, doesn’t it?

“You reach for that which lies beyond your seeming world. Keep reaching and you will find that which you seek, for the answer is always with you, and you already know what to do.”


Who thinks that the Truth might be something that we already know? Maybe we are afraid to know the truth. IF we are responsible for what we perceive, that would have to apply to everything, wouldn’t it?

So I ask myself – I ask each of you! – what is it that I truly want? IS there something that I am supposed to be doing, or perceiving that I just am missing somehow? If I already know the truth somewhere inside me, how do I decide what to do next?

God, if only someone wrote a book about that!

Oh, well, here – I did that!

Read “Vortex” – page 57:

“Then I have been asking the wrong question all along.”

“All this time I have been trying to remember who I used to be…. And I should have been asking myself ‘Who Am I?’ in this moment.”


It is in the moment that we make a difference in the unfolding of our perception. We choose what it is that we want to think, and then we see our thinking reflected in our experience. WE choose this ‘now’ again and again and again, without end, in the eternal moment that is ‘Now.’

I know what you’re thinking- you’re thinking “How could we each be choosing our experience when we are in this world together and share so many ‘facts’ in common? It’s like Science, right? There are some things that we just ‘KNOW’! So how could it be? Are our minds linked? Are we making it up together? Let’s go back to the book!

Read “Vortex” – page 117

“The same only different?”

It was uncanny how she read Vortex’s mind – how her thoughts followed his own.

“How do you do that? How do you seem to know what I am thinking?”

“I only seem to know, as you said. I am merely responding to my sense of what seems to be occurring….. I am not reaching into your brain and reading it – I am responding to my own attention in the Universe, which has not only aligned itself with your attention, but is fed from the same ‘Unmanifested Intention’ that is God….”


Wow. We are sharing the same Source! We are in this together! So if anyone seems to have more of something that is only because of alignment with that vibration in the space! Whew! Change your vibration and you change everything! What did Gandhi say? “Be the change that you want to see in the world.”


“Son! That’s enough!”

“What Dad?”

“There is always ‘enough’ of everything, Son. Always.”



“It is not God’s function to create, or uncreate, the circumstances or conditions of your life. God created you, in the image and likeness of God. You have created the rest, through the power God has given you. God created the process of life and life itself as you know it. Yet God gave you free choice, to do with life as you will.” ~Neale Donald Walsch
