Welcome and thanks for
being here! I am Brad Gilbert, Master of Medical Qigong. My wife

month's topic: Following Your Life
Wow what a month! Have you dared
something different yet? (see
our February E-Newsletter
for more on this). Is your life waiting for you to happen?
Here's a good question:
How do you feel when you go to work?
Do you have to have a big
cup of coffee? Do you grit your teeth as you
walk in thinking, "God, why am I here!?" It does not matter if you are
a top executive of a high-tech firm, or a part-time janitor for a local
school, or even have a hobby that brings you some joy and
If you are glad to be there, do your work, and satisfied when you are
done, then you are probably "on your right path," doing the work you
meant to for your life. This work may or may not have to do with
career. I don't mean that you need to have no complaints, and that everything
has to run perfectly. If that happened, you would be very bored and you
would not have a chance for advancement or new goals. If you are
right path, or have your right work, you will be challenged. We
here to learn a thing or two. This is the Divine school of the
physical. We are here to experience all we can being human. Your Divine
Source wants you to be fulfilled, and participating. Are you
doing what you really want with your life? If you are wasting
your time then you are "wasting God's time." I don't believe that you
will be punished (unless that is your belief), but you might get an
etheric kick in the pants when you are not
looking. Spirit won't let you be lazy too long before you'll get
hint that you need to do something else.
Q: "So how do I find my life path?"
A: Look in the mirror. I bet you have an idea
already. What is it? Wow that sounds great. Now how can you make it
work for you? Don't make too many detailed decisions. Leave some of
that for Divine guidance. If you are not sure where to start then
look to people that are already successful in what you would like to
do, and find out how they did it.
Q: "When is it too late to find my path?"
A: When you are dead!
Q: "Will my family/friends still accept me if
I quit everything I have done to be a tight-rope walker for Ringling
A: You will have to find out--communication is
the key. Being on your right path may bring a whole new set of
people into your life that you never would have been in contact with
before. Old relationships will probably change, and some fall
away, but this is a natural consequence of this kind of metamorphosis.
The only way to find the
life you want to live is to open the space to have that life right Now.
Do you want to have a
life path that matches your career or is it something you might do on
weekends or in the evenings after your regular paying job? Do
what it takes to begin it Now. We all have goals
we want to be when we grow up," but as long as our goals are
how it is could be some day in the future then that day will never
That day of feeling what you want to feel when you get there
to be something you can feel now. Life is short, really, and you want
feel a certain way like be happy with who you are now. Do you
feel a great pull to do it Now?
For each of us, the clock
is still ticking and we do not know when it will stop. Each person's
life is only for a certain amount of time. But in Divine time
there is only Now. Yes, there are things that need
to be done - pay the bills, take out the trash, do the laundry. Do you
hate these mundane things that need to be done all the time? I know, I
have been right there too. However, you can turn life's ordinary
experiences into a state of fulfillment, but you have to decide to do
you find that missing piece, your life path, the rest of your life can
just fall right into place. Peace comes to you when you actively
Fantasies are more than substitutes for unpleasant reality; they are
also dress rehearsals, plans. All acts performed in the world begin in
Barbara Grizzuti Harrison, American author and
me share with you this secret:
First, try this. Close your
eyes and imagine you are doing exactly what you have always dreamed of.
Are you a healer, an executive of a big successful firm, or a
landscaper working with the soil between your fingers? What ever it is,
you know that you deserve this and the people you help greatly
appreciate what you have done for them. You go to the place where you
do this work or play feeling fulfilled, useful, and complete knowing
that this is what you have been looking for. You are now more satisfied
family life, friends, and other commitments having this new avenue of
All those things that you used to complain about, that did not work
out, that were frustrating, are now in the background just working out
so much better, with much less effort on your part.
So what is stopping you
from having this? Does it seem to be negativity
coming from other people in your life, or from within yourself even? Do
you get a tightness in some part of your body when you think about
manifesting your ultimate life? Do you think it would cost you to much
to make it happen? Does your mind go numb, not sure how you could
handle life actually going your way? Or, are you just not sure exactly
what it is that you want to
do, but you already know exactly what you don't want to do.
There can be a lot of ways
in which you are blocked from your greatest potential. But with
determination and some help from those who are good at guiding you in
the right direction, you can make your dreams a reality. Just
don't try to do it alone. We all need assistance sometimes, so be brave
and get what you need to support yourself in this process.
The purpose of life, after all, is to live
it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without
fear for newer and richer experience.
