It’s about 9 pm on Tuesday night and it feels very important to write this personal note to you.
You see, I just returned home from the hospital after my father got his 8th MRI brain scan to look at the progress of his tumor.
To all of our great satisfaction
There is still no growth from the original scan….
Which in the world of brain cancer is great news, because no growth means no additional reason to worry.
Kind of ironic in the realm of business… right?
But I’m writing you this note, not because it has anything to do with your business, but rather because it has everything to do with your life and your relationships.
Because I’ll be honest…
I never expected this situation to arise.
I never thought my father, one of the world’s leading experts in mind-body medicine, and my greatest teacher, would get a brain tumor.
And I certainly had no clue that my life would change so dramatically in such a short period of time.
Which leads me to my point…
You might have a vision
In your mind about what your life, your business, your health, your relationships, or anything else is supposed to look like.
Which in some ways, is very healthy… To mentally create a picture of your ideal scene.
And on the other hand, it’s possible that your vision of what you “really want” is also preventing you from embracing, acknowledging, or simply enjoying what you already have right now.
How do I know?
Because for most of my life, I am starting to see that I have been that person.
The one who is always seeing that the grass is greener when I get to “the big show.”
I mean look, I’ll be the first to tell you…
I have strong desires.
Ever since I was a little kid, my mom used to look at my Astrological chart (she’s a world-renowned Vedic Astrologer) and tell me that it was one of my blessings and my curses.
I was just hungry to accomplish things in this world… and that desire still burns strongly inside of me to this day (for better or worse).
Yet being with my father as we go through this process together is slowly causing me to shift something in a deep way.
I mean, I still have the somewhat un-controllable passion to “create, create, create!”
But on another side, I’m understanding that this pattern never ends and you can always keep chasing “the next big thing”.
So we might as well begin to appreciate and enjoy what’s happening now rather than postponing to an anticipated future date.
And when I say this shift is happening slowly…
I mean it.
Because here’s the thing.
Each day, we are simultaneously “waiting” to see what’s going to happen next and ALSO doing our best to focus on enjoying what’s happening right now.
We do the best we can. Sometimes it’s incredibly emotional and painful…
… And other times it’s pure bliss.
And there’s not doubt in my mind… when I allow that to truly happen, to embrace and appreciate the good, the bad, and the ugly around what’s happening RIGHT NOW…
I see how divinely perfect it really is.
I’m probably saying this as much for me as I am for you…
No matter what you’re life looks right now; there is perfection in it.
… And see if you can be grateful for whatever it is.
Because we just don’t know how long we’re going to be here for or why any of this is truly happening in the big picture.
None of us know why were are experiencing what we’re experiencing or where it’s ultimately going to lead us…
But we do know that we have a choice, right in this moment, to pause and say: “I’m glad I’m still here.” And everything that’s happening is for my greater good and the greater good of others.
I just don’t understand it yet…
I mean look…
You or someone you love could wake up tomorrow with a brain tumor.
… And everything in your life would change in an instant.
So rather than waiting for such a radical transformation to occur in such a shocking manner, let’s all do our best to appreciate the good old-fashioned now.
No matter how beautiful or ugly, painful or blissful, abundant or scarce it is…
Because it’s all perfect. It’s all leading to our expansion. And it’s all good.
What do you say… I’ll keep reminding you if this eternal truth if you’ll do me a big favor and return the love in exchange.
