I finished my post yesterday morning, hit the “publish” button, but it didn’t work. I tried again, but WordPress indicated that it had already been published, even though it hadn’t. I tried again and still it did not work. I decided to go for a run and suddenly thought, “What if this is perfect? What if everything is, right now, as it should be? Even though I want it to be different, could it be right?” That was such a powerful thought. It was so soothing. Thinking that I need to change something, or that something should be different, when at the moment, I cannot change it, is so hard on both the emotional and physical body. When I decided that maybe the post not coming out at 7 am might be OK (or better than OK), even though I didn’t understand it, I felt a little excited to see how it would be resolved.
I went from being frustrated and irritated at WordPress (and my technical ineptitude) to feeling anticipation. In the car on the way to my office, I turned on the radio and the words, “…it’s all too beautiful, it’s all too beautiful”, were coming through the speakers and I smiled thinking of this very 1960’s song. It was such a wonderful affirmation for the day. The post that I had just written, was about using affirmations to create a better reality. I laughed as I sung, “It’s all too beautiful!” all the way to my office. When the song finished, the D.J. said, “That was Ichycoo Park by Small Faces, one of the classics from 1967, the summer of love.”
I remember that song. I was 12 years old when it came out, and suddenly I was right back there…zip. 45 years ago…time passed like it was nothing. If I am still around in 45 years, I’ll be 101. No time to waste on silly things like worry and regret and fear of the future. It will all be OK, somehow it will be right, maybe it will all be “too beautiful” for words. I like that thought.
The video of this song is below….today is a good day to celebrate the “spring of love, 2012!”
