I was feeling like I was in my element, and that was so for a number of reasons which I'll mention later - but I realized also that while I was sitting there enjoying the here and now of this situation, my mind was talking to me saying things like "I should have done this right away, missed the beach and come straight here, saved some money and time....."
Typical human programming - what a bunch of negative thinkers we are, always looking for a fault in a situation. In fact if I hadn't gone to the beach I would never have known it wasn't for me, I wouldn't have thought about coming here... one decision led to another and that to another... there's a chain of progression here and you can't skip it. I'm glad I realized this because it reminded me of my deeper goal regarding this journey - it's not about the travel per se, or cd's, or singing . . . it's about me discovering what life is all about by giving myself over to the flow of circumstance and opportunity and synchronicity and seeing where it all leads me. Well it led me to the beach and then to here. Where next I don't know, but that's a later adventure. For the moment I'm here, I'm now, and I'm grateful.
