Peace & Light to All the Funky Mystics AROUND the WORLD,
I’ve GOT to tell you that driving in 5 O’clock traffic in DALLAS-FORT WORTH can make me CRAZY. I hate it, especially on Friday, because it’s like people are EXTRA focused on getting away from their places of employment! They will run you OVER! Even when you are driving correctly.
As soon as I realized that I was caught up in this “mess”, I said out loud in the car, “OK God, you are gonna have to help me here. People are driving crazy and I hate feeling boxed up in this car, not able to get where I’m going like I’m use to, when traffic is not a problem. God, I’m gonna need some extra energy to move through this mess in joy!” After I prayed this prayer, I was at peace! I had driven this stretch of highway tons of times and knew if I could only get to this one specific section of road, the craziness would subside and it would be “smooth sailing” to my destination from there!
As I began to merge onto the main roadway, a pink Cadillac Escalade, refused to allow me to merge. I drove beside the car down the roadway hoping that the driver would finally release some of the frustration they felt and let me in. The driver never did. Once I realized that this driver was not gonna let me in, I wasn’t angry or frustrated, much to my surprise. At that point, I was inspired to look in my rear view mirror and saw that the driver behind me had created a clearance for me. I said out loud in the car, “Thank you!”
As the pink Escalade moved forward, I fell back, right into place that was created just for me. Once I got into place, some FUNKY OLD SCHOOL JAMS started playing on the radio. My, Myself & I by De La Soul, Tennessee by Arrested Development and MORE! I started singing LOUD and enjoying my time in the car. I looked beside me and noticed a clearing, I moved up into that space, peered into my rear view mirror and saw the pink SUV that refused to let me in. I saw another opening, and another opening and another opening, I took them all, which moved me out of the bumper to bumper and away from the pink SUV. Before you know it, I couldn’t see the SUV, was out of the traffic jam and I was to that “smooth sailing” spot I told you about earlier!
I learned a lot from this experience! But I think the thing that stands out the most is this: Don’t expect everyone to do what YOU think is right, but someone ALWAYS will. Align yourself with Spirit/God so you can recognize when goodness comes your way, take that opportunity and you will be “smooth sailing” in no time!
Sending you PEACE, LOVE & POWER!
