The past few weeks have been turbulent for me, but I asked for busy and this has been yet another example proving the statement "ask and ye shall receive." As I said I asked for "busy" and I got all manners of busy, but the only problem is some of that "busy" was somewhat fruitless and time wasting. I say "somewhat fruitless" because it was those fruitless moments that made me realize that often when we ask God/The Universe/Whatever Force You Ask By Whatever Name You Call for things we ask in a vague manner and as such we get vague results.
Its very important to be specific about what we want and why we want it or else we may find ourselves chasing the wind. If you don't understand the concept actually try it; next time you feel the wind blow just run in that direction to see you you can catch it before it disappears or you collapse of exhaustion. Keep in mind that whatever we ask for that we have to give up something in exchange for it because nothing and I mean nothing is free. It may not cost money but you will have to sacrifice time and energy which are two of your most valuable resources. I sacrificed time to get to this reminder of a realization because sometimes we forget what we know and have to retrace some steps while reevaluating our choices and our requests.
When I asked God to help me get busy what I really wanted was an expansion of my artistic career to include workshops, college performances, my monthly venue packed with more audience members than poets, and a greater online presence including more digital sales, and a few more things which I won't go into here but all I asked for was to get busy. And what I got was an increase in the things I was already doing within the circle I was running. Instead of an expansion of the circle I just ran more laps in a shorter time. Sure I got a lot done but the only thing I have to show for it is "getting a lot done".
Therefore it is of the greatest importance that our prayers are accompanied by precise planning and practical actions that match up with our requests or we just end up tired.
OH YEAH AND IF YOU DECIDE TO CHASE THE WIND...PLEASE HAVE SOMEONE VIDEOTAPE, UPLOAD, AND SEND ME THE LINK SO I CAN POST IT HERE.
