Entertaining Emotional Guidance
I received this entertaining email from a friend and former client, but it was her comment at the end of the note that made me burst out laughing.
“To my darling husband,
Before you return from your business trip I just want to let you know about the small accident I had with the pick up truck when I turned into the driveway.
Fortunately it was not too bad and I really didn’t get hurt, so please don’t worry too much about me.
I was coming home from Wal-Mart, and when I turned into the driveway I accidentally pushed down on the accelerator instead of the brake. The garage door is slightly bent but the pick up fortunately came to a halt when it bumped into your car.
I am really sorry, but I know with your kind-hearted personality you will forgive me. You know how much I love you and care for you my sweetheart. I am enclosing a picture for you.
I cannot wait to hold you in my arms again.
Your loving wife
P.S. Your girlfriend called.”
The way the email goes, you read the love note first, THEN see the photo, and then the PS about the girlfriend.
But my friend’s note at the end made me proud that my message of always seeking the downstream action had gotten through. Her words:
Before she got into the truck, she asked herself,
“what would feel better?” . . .
Indeed! lol Sometimes the “feel better” action may very well result in something that looks like the above photo. Lord knows I’ve been there!
Which is why no one else can give us direction as good as we can give ourselves.
Checking within about what feels best offers us expert guidance.
We hear Abraham say all the time that our tendency to shun anger sometimes keeps us from climbing up the emotional scale. Although it doesn’t necessarily feel good to stay in the angry vibe for lengthy periods, sometimes it’s exactly the bridge we need in order to get to higher vibrations.
And that’s as much as I’ll say about that. For now, anyway. 🙂
