It’s Possible – by Annette

When I sit in front of a blank computer screen, staring at it for inspiration, I often wonder if it’s really true. You know, the theory about the million monkeys typing for however long will render the complete works of Shakespeare… That’s mind boggling.  All I am really interested in is being able to corral the random thoughts floating around in my mind and have them visually appear!  In cohesive order!  Like MAGIC!!

Magic! That’s it!  I need some major magic going here.  To write, is my right and when I invoke the rituals and rites of magic, sometimes I can write fairly well. However, the evocative writing gets blocked from time to time. Drats and rats! I cannot stand writer’s block.  It annoys me more than anything else. Monkeys?  Are you there?  Will you come to rescue me?  NOW??

In desperation, I release the need to make anything magically appear.  I release the need for eloquent thoughts or rationale to pervade. I allow the process of creativity its own space and time. This means I risk appearing to ramble on and on (like now?) but I am learning to trust the process. This must be some cosmic lesson, a magic lesson no doubt. Like, not trying to change the situation, appreciate things for what they are and allowing the magic to amaze and delight.  Um, suddenly I have this intense craving for bananas…

Could it be that the experience is the lesson?  If this is true, then I can relax regarding the means. After all, it all does come out exactly as it should, regardless of how much I push to make it happen. In fact, pushing really doesn’t make it happen any quicker, it just makes it harder.  Why would I want to work harder?  Perhaps working smarter will get me further, faster. This could be my abracadabra moment!

I like this calm, peaceful feeling I have as I give it all over to Divine Order.  There is a strength building as I step aside to give way to Divine Timing.  Trust allows me to keep writing and release the need to and for judgement of the value of my work. I understand that as long as I keep writing, magic will manifest. This is not the winter of my discontent after all!  Hey, who let that monkey in here?
