[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] It Pours Out of You

"Every gift I give is always a gift to myself. I never lose! I gain, and so
does the recipient of my gift, especially if he or she learns from me to
give again. "Who understands what giving means must laugh at the idea of
sacrifice" (6:2). A Course In Miracles

It Pours Out of You

Affirmation: We are all family and the planet is our home

Journal Entry 160: I now drive myself to and from work every day; it's a
twenty minute drive with no "jam." I've noticed as soon as I start packing
up to get ready to leave the car is surrounded by women looking for a ride!
A few times I have been in the car with them who speak not a lick of
English. Those rides show me that we can communicate without words!

Then there are the story tellers who sit in the car and talk and talk and I
listen and listen! I've started looking forward to being a taxi driver!
Yesterday one of the ladies said to me "Madam, your journey here is
authentic and unique, compare it to anyone you must not, you are prepared
for your journey, do you know that we all are? What you people do is want
to show up with everything ready down to the last detail but that is not
what is required for life."

Being a taxi driver has its benefits!
