Emails From God...

Every morning in my inbox I receive an email from God. Okay, before you get all skeptical on me, let me explain. I've blogged before about Neale Donald Walsch. His Conversations With God series of books helped me reprogram the baggage I held around the word god when I left the Jehovah's Witnesses. It allowed me to entertain the notion of god as my higher self, that which I truly am, as Walsch states, "the grandest version of the greatest vision ever we held about who we are." While I may not agree with all of Walsch's philosophy, I can relate to the "dialogue" he has had on his life journey with the inner divine.

So, I signed up for Walsch's daily email a month ago. And I smile every time I get one. In a fun, horoscopey, mantra kinda way, they mirror my life. I thought I'd share today's as it made me do a little dance around my living room.

On this day of your life, [tall penguin], I believe God wants you to know...

.....that you have only just begun to discover your
magnificence.

This period of your life marks a New Beginning. You
can feel it. And you have only just begun to know the
treasure and the glory of You. And you have only just
begun to make your Real and Lasting Contribution.

So step into this day with zest and zeal! Go now and
give your gift. We're all waiting for you. And we need
the wonder of Who You Are.

You may recall these words I wrote just yesterday regarding my life and where it's going: "I think the me I am has always been there. It's just a matter of time before the butterfly finds its wings...It's in process people. I can feel it." I know rationally it's a randomly generated mass emailing, but still, I like watching art imitate my life.

I am a walking, empty cardboard box. It's weird hearing myself bubble forth with emotion when commenting while simultaneously breaking down the answer with logic.

Just reading through your blog.

I also get those daily emails and quite enjoy them. Back in June, I was actually able to meet Neale in Chicago. You can read about my experience here:
