When I saw this writing on a Park avenue pavement, it went right into my heart & turned into a question – “What do I really live for?”. I thought of a couple of possibilities, which all sounded cool, but non was unarguable enough for me not to doubt it in my own head-:) The answer to this question came to me yesterday as I was walking in Brooklyn searching for the house in which I was going to officiate the exchanging of vows & sacred partnership ceremony of Geordi & Segun. Although I had clear instructions how to get there, I went to the wrong address. When I realized that ‘I was lost again’… I was triggered by this horrible anxiety of being late & a desperate panic that ‘I was never going to find the place’. Of course, the voice of anxiety loves a good story – “Thirty people are waiting for you to officiate the ceremony they came for, and you can’t even get get it together to find the place & be there on time? What the f–ck is wrong with you?”.
Thanks 2 my BREAZE practice, I turned my anxiety over to the breath, and asked Love to heal me. Within seconds my displacement anxiety shifted in 2 breaths of compassion. Of course, I got there on Go
d’s time – not mine & started the ceremony with the story of what happened on my way to Willow Place which my internal GPS turned into Willow Street, and how it made me feel like I was in Payton Place.. -:). At the end of the day, I was Loving~IT~all~the~way, which is what I really came to share with Geordi & Segun & their lovely family & friends – “Live 2 love all the way.”
