God cures the patients, but the doctor takes the fee.


Hawkeye Pierce

One of all my time favorite shows is M*A*S*H*.  I watch it as often as I can and two nights ago JUST as I turned the show on, having missed the first five minutes, I heard the above quote.  Interesting in and of itself.  But what I found completely fascinating is that I still wanted to write one more blog to stay two weeks ahead.

Many of you who have been with me on this blog journey for awhile now understand my feelings about writing:
–That I’m directed what to write.
–That I’m simply a conduit.
What I write is a direct result of divine guidance.

I clearly understand I may receive odd looks when I suggest such a thing and that’s just fine.  This is what I believe; and remember that adage from Law of Attraction that our thoughts create our reality?  My reality is that the Divine is everywhere.  We only have to seek it out and when we hear the voice speaking to us, not to ignore it.  Accept it and be thankful for it.

As it was the other night:
I believe I missed the first few minutes of M*A*S*H* for the direct reason that I’d hear that quote from Hawkeye, giving me the inspiration I needed to complete my blogging schedule.

Nothing happens without the Divine’s explicit permission.

Our transition?
Our challenges?
I wrote about one such challenge here a couple years ago:  Paraplegic Berkeley Student Walks.  This can be used in any context that I’m referring to today.  Make sure you read the follow up A Dangerous Thing where I discuss what I’m writing here.  That we have a divine schedule and that everything we do has already been decided.  So now maybe you understand why I resonated so deeply with Hawkeye’s quote.

Everything in our lives is Divinely mapped out for us long before we incarnate each lifetime.  So what does all this have to do with Hawkeye’s quote?
Nothing happens unless God decrees it.

This is something I believe with all my heart.  It is only because too much has happened in my life not to see this as my truth.  After certain events have occurred, I’ve clearly seen the divine’s hand at work.  I can’t list everything here so I will direct you to Being Spiritual.

I clearly understand that many of you may cringe when I invoke that word.  Rest assured, however, as I say at least once each time I use it, that I don’t mean the religious God.  I use the word in a spiritual context, a universal context, a divine context.  I can’t begin to explain to you how how deeply my spiritual roots go.  I don’t attend organized religion, because I’ve never been comfortable being told:
Believe this.
Don’t believe that.

We should be able to make our own choices on what we believe, not force fed a particular paradigm.  As I’ve maintained here for some time.  Everything, I feel comes down to choice.

What do you choose to believe?

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.
