Ask for what you want!
If I am quick to see danger lurking in those around me, and to question another's kind intentions, it is most likely because I am quick to question my own, and have not learned as yet to forgive myself. ACIM
Today I took the plunge and cooked. I was right proud of myself, all went well and it goes to show feel the fear and do it anyway! So I’m walking around saying I did it, I cooked, they asked me what did you cook? When I told them, stunned silence then extended laughter! Ok Edwards, we will get someone to either give you cooking lessons or cook for you! I am determined now to leave the country with enhanced cooking skills!I went around looking for a place to watch the Arsenal game, I came up on the Bamboo nest, funny what happens when you want to make something happen no matter what! The Bamboo nest is a big bamboo shed. I approached the man at the entrance, I said I am looking for a place to watch a football game. He said well my friend you have found it.
I asked what game are you showing, he responded any game you desire! At first I was questioning in my mind is this for real, he’s really kind , then I remembered the teachings in ACIM which talks about the way you perceive things is really a reflection of what’s in your mind and to follow your first instincts, believe that people are inherently good! I also remembered my lady from yesterday on the talk on my energy. Walk with the right energy and the Spirits/Ancestors/Gods will protect you without fail! All things are lessons that God will have you learn.I paid my host $2us dollars and was directed up the bamboo stairs, of course, lead to my own tv and given some type of ginger drink! I thought I was in heaven! I watched football all evening and my team won too!! I even left with some new friends! Persistence, following your intution and determination- works every time!
So what did I learn today?
The easiest way to get what you want is to ask for it. I wanted to see Arsenal play, I asked for it! When you flip-flop between what you feel, what you say and what you do, you send out mixed signals, which means you will get mixed and often unsatisfactory results. (It is also a good practice to make sure that your no means no and that your yes means yes.) Write it down, speak it out loud or clearly picture it in your mind.
