Trust the "System" - It Works!


The "System" - the overall structure and organization of this great creation that we're a part of? including our ability to personally interact with (and benefit from) the spiritual aspects of this creation (universal consciousness, God, whatever you'd like to call it).

Here's the story behind our recent move.

It all started with a single comment as we merged onto the 101 and pointed the van westward from Phoenix toward a short vacation in California.

"What the hell are we doing here?"

I had lived in the Phoenix metropolitan area for over 30 years and was ready for a change to a slower-paced lifestyle, less traffic and congestion and yes, a lower summertime temperature. Don't get me wrong. Phoenix is a great place to live - a great climate, good employment opportunities and plenty to do year around. It's just that now, on that early September morning, I was starting to feel an urge to be somewhere else. Where - I had no clue.

"So where would you like to be?" I asked my life companion.

"Well, I remember driving through a small town in Missouri about 30 years ago that I thought was really nice. I can't remember the name of the town but maybe if I look at a map it will come back to me."

Obviously since we're talking about moving here, she recognized the name of the town and to make a long story really short - we moved. Pretty simple, huh? We moved - to a town I'd never been to and that she had spent maybe all of seven minutes driving through. And - we bought a house - without ever having seen it in person. Sure, we did our research and were fortunate to have someone available fairly close by to check out the house - and we were fortunate to have complete strangers work closely with us to make sure the process was completed in a reasonably efficient manner.

We moved - and are now living in an absolutely beautiful part of the country, in a great small town in a nice home surrounded by absolutely super neighbors and friends.

No big deal you say? Thousands of people move every day. You're absolutely right. But how many thousands don't move - or don't do those really nice things they could do because they're afraid to make a change? Because they're afraid that things might not turn out as well as they'd like? Because they're afraid to step outside of their comfortable little womb to experience a different lifestyle, a different job, a different group of friends, or a different environment?

How many people hold themselves prisoners in their present situation because they lack the confidence in themselves - and in the "system" - to carry them on to a more enjoyable destination? To new opportunities to experience new situations and to learn from them? The likely answer is "far too many". What a pity.

I am thoroughly convinced that each one of us has the ability to interact with what I have referred to as the "system" to a degree that will provide us each with tremendous benefits. All we need to do is follow our instincts, our gut feelings, our "knowing" and let the system work for us. Sure, we need to do our part and do our research and sometimes even really bust our buns to get to wherever we feel we should be. But that's just the normal doing - the actions that are a necessary part of making any change or achieving any goal.

Are you ready for a change? So go for it! The system is already in place to help you?
