"When you are in alignment with who-you-really-are, you cannot help but uplift those with whom you come into contact. Your value to those around you hinges upon only one thing: your personal alignment with Source. And the only thing you have to give to another is an example of that alignment—which they may observe, then desire, and then work to achieve—but you cannot give it to them. Everyone is responsible for the thoughts they think and the things that they choose as their objects of attention."

--- Abraham

This is a somewhat "New Age-y" way to say this, but it does correspond to what I myself have experienced. I don't actually believe in doing anything other than talking and living from where I am most whole, and then putting people in positions to do the same thing for themselves.

Someone asked who Abraham is. I'll put a link to a site describing Abraham here in a bit.

The answer to this question doesn't actually matter to me. I don't have any real sense of who or what "Abraham" is. I do care though, that some of things attributed to him/her/them/it reflect aspects of my experience.

And another way to say it:

"If we are not happy, if we are not peaceful, we cannot share peace and happiness with others, even those we love, those who live under the same roof. If we are peaceful, if we are happy, we can smile and blossom like a flower, and everyone in our family, our entire society, will benefit from our peace."
  ~Thich Nhat Hanh

This one resonates, too.

Yesterday I had a hundred important things to do, and in the midst of them all I got a strong urge to renew my passport. I discovered that it had lapsed in January when I grabbed it a few weeks ago in order to use it as a model for a faux, stick-on passport on my vision board.

The form has been filled out ever since, waiting for me to act on it. Why yesterday? I had so much to do! I did it---it required two trips to *two* post offices---but I didn't understand why. My travel plans seem to have shifted, I don't have any upcoming trips and I don't understand why I had to do it yesterday and not Monday, or why I had to overnight it---which I did, reluctantly, after my inner sense pitched a fit at the priority mail option. Whatever!

Finally, I decided that if nothing else, it would prove to be an interesting test for that pesky inner sense.

We'll see.

I want to go to Bhutan. It will be expensive.

I'll need to make more money soon. Good thing I am excited to do this!
