I spent some time in meditation the other day, worried about work, being lolita, my relationship with my beloved, and a hundred other things. I received the following advice, with the instruction to share it widely--because it is not just for me, but for anyone and everyone who feels moved and inspired by it. Here goes:

Hold back nothing from your beloved. You are embarking upon the adventure of a lifetime. Let him drive; don't worry what you want. Share those things with him and with Me, but do not become impatient for them, any of them. Not the wedding, the marriage, or any of it.

Be like a lotus in a valley pool, content with where you are, where you are going, and the value you add to your surroundings.

I know you need certain things, but be unconcerned for the future. Strive to live cleanly, kindly, and lovingly right now. Strive to be content with all that you do have.

Take stock of what you have. Use it (do not lose it), for the betterment of society and humanity. Everywhere kids need your inspiration, but how can they be inspired if you have let the bloom fall off the rose? How can the young be inspired if they look at adulthood and see nothing they want?

Be yourself, because nobody else is going to be you. Nobody else has what it takes to be you--plus, they are all too busy engaged in the equally important job of being themselves.

Wallpaper your world with your own visions of beauty--who knows where this will lead?

You cannot leave your spirit dead and buried any longer. Begin to come out of the closet at any cost. Only by seeing you come alive can anyone else be inspired to come alive themselves. The time for toil and swallowing of sorrows is long past. Your task is to eat joy--to eat it so deeply that seven generations of your ancestors are nourished by it. They are here, watching their precious child, grandchild, great-grandchild and so on, grow up.

Your coming into your own power will be a cause for celebration the world wide.

Yay! I am glad you got something from it. Funny thing, when I went and posted the link to it on FB, I was thinking only of women, and totally forgot that Adam could read it too, which he did. Eeek!

Well, hot damn, let me know when I need to buy a plane ticket to Chicago (or wherever) and pack a suitcase with a vintage dress and matching hat. Unless you do the eloping thing, and then I'll look pretty silly wandering around Chicago dressed like someone from the 1940s.

I'll keep you posted! And, if it happens, I'm hoping everyone shows up in lolita or vintage or other fun clothes. :D
