I took some pictures at Cranes Roost Park in Altamonte Springs today before yoga. I only took pictures around the fountain area. My focus was on the pretty shadows of mid day light and textures. All pictures up on Photobucket.
So I have not been to worried about the fact I am homeless come Sunday night. And I cannot explain why I am not worried. Maybe it is because I have other places to go. I think it is mostly because, unencumbered by “stuff” I can go wherever the wind blows. This is truly the most liberating feeling in the world. So much freedom. I can do where I want when I want and stay where I want. Its amazing.
This also allows me to wait for the best opportunity, where I really feel as if the universe is offering me exactly what I need, instead of taking the first thing that comes along afraid of “securing” something. In fact, many of the choices I have made in the past are to be “secure” or to get something before someone else does and constantly looking for something better that I missed out on because I chose to be secure. Being able to choose what I want and waiting for opportunities is really allowing me to listen to the world or god or universe or intuition or myself. Whatever it is, I am listening to it. I am learning who I am and about the world and people around me like I have not been able to before. It really is amazing.
And I have not even left yet!
This afternoon the Universe told me where I will be staying, for part of the time at least, after Saturday. I had given up on the apartment search temporarily and was thinking I would have to couch surf around friends hoping not to bug one friend too much. Only, a lot of my friends live 45 minutes to an hour or more from downtown Orlando, where I work. I have done that commute before, but it is a beast. So I texted my friend M that I would like to take her up on an offer to stay at her place. She told me she had just talked to a girlfriend of one of her clients who works half the time in Florida and half the time out of state. She has a really nice loft apartment about 5 miles from where I work. Perfect location because I can bike to work, most of the way on a bike path. I just need to find a bike. When she is in state I have other people who I can stay with, including M. All possible because I am sans “stuff.”
I am meeting the boyfriend today to check out the apartment and can be in there before Sunday if we agree! Amazing how things just work out sometimes. Paulo Coelho says the Universe conspires to help those chasing their dreams. I think it might possibly be that if you truly listen to the Universe it is always there to offer you nurturing and solutions. It is the beginning and end of us, it is us. Its existence is our existence. So people – listen!
