I Want My Slice of the Cosmic Cake...

I have learned that standing under the sky and shouting to the Universe "I want my enlightenment NOW, dammit!" is about as effective as firing a pea-shooter at a Yeti and expecting it to fall down dead. But still, I do it. It's like when your mother tells you not to touch "that thing on the stove", but you touch it anyway. And then you burn. Or, maybe nothing happens. Here are a few examples of what I've yelled at the Universe and my Gohonzon:

* I want my financial karma to be changed NOW, dammit!
* I want my relationship to be happy NOW, dammit!
* I want Lucifer returned home safe and sound. NOW, dammit!
* Make me perfect - NOW, dammit! NOW!

So, really, I shouldn't be surprised that nothing happens (now, dammit, now) at all. It takes time. Change is a process and I am an impatient little insect swirling about in the great big Cosmic sea.


  1. I have been working on my patience. It has been getting better with age anyway but I started out with less than none. So I am having to consciously work on it.

  2. I have been in a similiar space, Tanya.
    Two offerings of advice (I know, you didn't ask) and you certainly don't have to believe me.....

    Eckhart Tolle reminds me that my life situation is ripples on the surface of Being. My Being is untouched. The surface has the ups and downs of the waves(always).

    And a reminder to be immpeccable with your word even(especially) when you are shouting at the universe...if you keep saying Dammit, you are evoking damnation, n'est-pa?

    Of course I realise I am talking to myself and I will now go and post this on my bathroom mirror........
