Yesterday was a windy chilly day in Venice. I was walking block after block without knowing where to, I just found new alleys, new little roads and it was all so quiet, I was alone, I did not see or hear anyone else. And then it suddenly hit me again and I love when it happens: I’m so fortunate, I’m so lucky, so happy. I realized once again how I have everything I desire and I feel at peace. And feeling that way even though I just like everyone else has issues and problems and concerns, well, I felt proud. I felt so proud of being able to stay focused on my priorities. And that I know my priorities.
When I find this mental state, and they do come more and more often since I practice bringing it to my mind, there is nothing that can stop or push me off my path. I feel empowered. And finding that power within myself and not from praying to some higher force or god makes me realize that yes, I can accomplish anything I want. If I do ultimately does not really matter, but believing so is.
I’ve made it my number one priority in life to be happy and content. It’s the hardest task one can master because it takes constant practice. Day in and day out. But, wait a minute, that I do already, I do as I do because I practice to be disciplined and patient. Once again, I get goose bumps when I see what my life brings to me and what things leads to. I always knew I was going somewhere unknown, I worked to get there, and now it’s all coming together. I reached a new level.
