Universal Insider

universeI’m normally pretty even keeled. No great highs or lows. Usually. Sure, I get depressed (clinical diagnosis once upon a time). And I get sillily happy and prone to Snoopy dancing when good things happen. But by and large, in my day-to-day life, I’m mostly mellow. I smile. I’ve been known to sniffle over a book, a commercial, a TV show. I laugh at silly internet memes.

When the Universe popped in with this, I wasn’t too surprised, being mostly self-contained. But it bears repeating.

Silver, all that you need, to have all that you want, lies inside of you, right now.

Silver, what a package!

We are what we are and we each have the capacity to decide and go after what we want. All we need do is look inside. Do you know what you want and need?

    Wow, profound for first thing in the morning – and when all I know I want (and need) is a second cup of coffee! Seriously, though, it’s very true – we just have to be wise enough to listen to ourselves without getting sidetracked by all the outside influences and ‘noise’!

    • Silver James says:

      Absolutely, Janet. We each have the ability to make ourselves happy or sad. Circumstances can create waves, but how we handle those bumps all comes from within. It’s up to us–not other people, things, stuff. Hope things are looking better after that second cup. I’m headed for my 3rd…or 4th. I’ve lost track this morning. 😉

  2. Yep. Self-contained. Even keeled. Encapsulated. It’s the best way to be, imo.

    Right now, I don’t know what I want or even what I need. Hubs asked me yesterday what I would want to put on the list of things to buy and things to do to the house, and I’m all like ‘I don’t know’. I did order up a new comforter and sheets so we can have some kind of ‘decor’ in the master bedroom.

    Here’s a deep thought for you: If necessity is the mother of invention, when you don’t need anything, are you uninventive? Cuz I feel uninventive.

    • Silver James says:

      Necessity is the mother of invention, it is true, but its father is creativity, and knowledge is the midwife – Jonathan Schattke.

      You aren’t feeling particularly creative at the moment, my friend. 😦 And you’ve come to a place in your life where your physical needs are met. And for the moment, you’re treading mud in an intellectual quagmire. Wish I lived closer. I’d roadtrip up and we’d talk. About all sorts of shit. Not writing. But trials. Tribulations. Burnout. Good stuff. Bad shit. And life and what a bitch she can be. We’d drink coffee. We’d watch wildlife. You might even get me to hike in the woods. And then I’d ask one question…

      What if…?

    Well….I needed to finish reading The King before going to Ward’s Q&A this weekend, and did so about 30 minutes ago. I also really need my grandmother’s house that is under contract to finally close. I’m sure there are many wants, but I’m so tired from missing out on sleep due to reading I can’t really think right now.

    • Silver James says:

      Reading a good book is always reason to miss sleep. 😉 Crossing fingers for the house to close. Have a safe trip this weekend. I won’t tell you to have fun. I know you’ll have a blast!
