I have to admit that I’ve been feeling frustrated lately. Nothing keeps happening! When will all of this spiritual crap kick in already and make me a Bodhisattva? I’ve been meditating until my head hurts and … that’s bullshit. I’ve actually been watching a lot of TV. And I know, I know, the road to enlightenment is a lifetime journey, but all I keep thinking is: Are we there yet?
Tony keeps reminding me that I just need to stay on the righteous path (and it’s impossible not to hear Samuel L. Jackson’s voice when he’s saying that). What he’s really saying is that there are bound to be some fun adventures awaiting a newly single guy trying to be metaphysically good. And this is also why he is my best friend.
I also thought that maybe this would be a good time to check in with Laura, my feng shui guru and de facto spritual guide. If anyone could set me straight, it’s her. So I emailed about my disappointment and impatience with achieving a higher state of awareness (and if my kids are reading this … dudes, this doesn’t mean what you think it means) and this is what she had to say:
That’s part of your own blockage and the lesson you need to understand. When you become aware of the greater happenings, life opens up and you understand your purpose. So stop rushing the process, you need to go through the experience. No one said it would be pleasant all the time. This is how you’ll learn, evolve, understand and gain experience, which leads to wisdom and the understanding of spirituality. The entire world is going through this process. It’s called ascension. Amazing things are happening every day. So have patience, young grasshopper 😉
Now the secret of being a kick-ass spiritual guide is the ability to impart simple truths while occasionally goofing on Kung-Fu dialog, and nobody does it better than Laura, although Tony is equally genius when it comes to Pulp Fiction quotes.
So in the spirit of heeding Tony’s advice on “fun adventures” and accepting Laura’s assertion that “amazing things are happening every day,” I’m going on vacation. And maybe, just maybe, I’ll find whatever it is I’m looking for. See you in a week.
