Directing Traffic


“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson


Wow! It’s like Ralph wrote this saying just for me! Today was surely about blunders and absurdities. The thing is, though, that I am living my life out loud and therefore you all may be subject to catching me in real and raw moments. I said today that the Peace On Earth Tour is like a reality show because boy does it ever get real! After 37000 miles on the road, I get a little weary of people endangering others when there is absolutely no reason to do so. We had a long drive today and sat on an interstate in Texas for a couple of hours due to a major accident (not us, thank God). So, nerves were already weary when we entered Louisiana. Most of you know that Jean and I chant with an online group every night. Tonight, we joined in as I was driving and Jean was running the phone video. Traffic got a bit tight so I was paying more attention to what was going on with that. One driver decided to play bully on the road and was so close to my rear end that if I had just tapped the brake he would have been in the backseat. He was trying to push me to go faster which was impossible as we were in bumper to bumper traffic. He passed me and did the same thing to the car beside me. I backed off the car ahead of me and my thinking was that he was going to try to slide in between cars so I would let him come over in front of me, preferring that to having him behind me again. He kept riding the other car who couldn’t go any faster due to traffic. I forgot we were online as it was a quiet moment of tuning into the heart and I had not been able to focus on the broadcast. So, in my frustration I said out loud before my brain could stop me “get off his a** and move over here.” The look on Jean’s face was priceless and I immediately realized that it was out there for God and everybody to hear!


Dear Angels, sometimes us humans just have to be human and be okay with it! We all had a good laugh on and off the air. Talk about staying in your own lane! I could no more control the raging driver than I could the moon yet there I was directing traffic at 80 mph and losing my cool. My only thought was for safety for all involved but perhaps it is best to just let things play out sometimes?


Dear Ones, we implore you to stop judging yourselves so harshly when under stress. No one can predict what others might do as you interact with each other. Sometimes even when you do something with the best of intention, there still may not be the best outcome. You would do well to take the advice of the wise one you quoted and stop focusing on what is already done, moving forward serenely and on a higher vibration. Ask yourself if what you did was done with malice or ill-intent, did it harm anyone? No. Did you cross the line of being judgmental – yes. Now, let it go. Holding on to anger and regret will only fill your life with discontent. Be human, be real and enjoy your life to the fullest. You will make mistakes and blunders along the way. It’s okay.


Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.


Today, I promise to do my best to stay in my lane and let the angels direct traffic from now on! It’s too big of a job for me.
