Treat Yourself. Forget Asceticism

I know that many people want a better life. Most of us, actually. I was there a few times. Thankfully, I remembered how I managed to have a beautiful life before I took to self-flagellation, figuratively or literally.

Remember, we’re all Children of God. We all deserve joy and love. We really do. If you don’t believe that, go and take a walk. Look at the sunset. Listen to a dog barking. Bake a cake. Start realizing that you deserve a life that is a joy to live, not a penance to endure. Many religious people love God but forget that suffering wasn’t part of God’s original plan.

Treat yourself. You need not become egotistical in order to do so. But treat yourself, all the same. Cuddle up on the couch with a good book. Take a nice hot bath with scented Epsom salts. Schedule a massage on demand at home and enjoy the feeling of relieving muscular tension. Take out your old college paint set and paint something. Remember what it’s like to FEEL like you’re worth something. You’re worth it.

I’m not telling you to buy into any New Age garbage. Just realize you are worthy of God’s love. And, also, this isn’t meant to be a religious blog. It’s meant to simply re-orient you to what life is. If you are atheistic, think of it this way: Life is not to be endured, it’s to be lived. If you want to take God out of the picture, that doesn’t mean you will miss the point.

All the effort in the world can’t get you there. But remember the feeling of when your parents hugged you? Remember what it was like on Christmas morning? The day of your Bat Mitzvah? Graduation day? Your first date with that cute boy in high school? That feeling of anticipation, of newness, of infinite possibility? Yeah; that feeling. That’s where you want to be. even if you’re’ eighty.

I’m trying to help you. Are you getting it yet? It’s a certain feeling, a certain perspective. A certain knowledge, a certain understanding. Life can be anything. It’s an open book. Make your story a story that you can bear. There may be twists and turns, but any good plot has that. Remember to write a story day by day that where you are free. Free to be yourself, free to pursue your true destiny.

By now, you should KNOW I’m a Reality Queen. I make life happen. God gave us all this ability, but few of us use it.

I Am A Queen

I am a queen. Not a drama queen. A reality queen.

What does that mean, exactly?

I’ll tell you.

I can create my own destiny.

Clear enough? I think so.

What I really mean is this: I can close my eyes, make a wish, open my eyes, and find myself in a new reality. Can you do the same?

Didn’t think so. Maybe you’d like to acquire this ability, too? And, why not? It never hurts to be able to be the master of your own destiny.

My suggestion: Start by forgetting everything you THINK you know about reality. Now, let me tell you what I know for sure:

Any of us can be anything we want. ANYTHING. By this, I mean that life is a blank, a book without words. We fill in the words as we go along.

Now, I don’t mean that we simply choose a path. Go to Stonybrook. Major in medicine. Nah, that’s too obvious.

I mean more like: Go to Stonybrook and have the time of your life, while getting a straight A average. Meeting the man of your dreams there.

Major in medicine. Have medical programs calling you day and night, competing for your attendance. Pay for medical school? No way! For you, it’s free!

Does this sound like a dream? It could be. Your dream, that is.

I can’t stress enough that I’ve always had this ability. It wasn’t something I learned. I was fortunate enough to be born this way.

I will say there were times I lost this gift. I didn’t even realize until I reflected on my life and it became clear that I had once had the world in my hand.

How did I get it back? That’s what this blog is all about.

Now, I know this is a major cliffhanger, and I don’t think you would want to tune out if you have any sense.

But, that’s part of what I’m trying to let you in on. You probably WILL tune out. You probably think I’m a kook. Or some freak who casts spells.

No, I just pray to God. But so do you, probably. That’s not the secret.

The secret is…remember the universe can be anything. You are in control. You’re in control in a way that might be frightening, if it were not so amazing.

You are to blame. You are the one making things happen. Good and bad. It’s all coming from you.

I can’t prove this to you, but if you take this knowledge and walk the days of your life knowing it and your life be be transformed.

Transformed from a series of random crap to a series of random good. I promise. And, a promise from a Reality Queen is no small thing.
