It Don't Come Easy

"It don't come easy, you know it don't come easy. Got to pay your dues if you wanna sing the blues, 'cause you know it don't come easy."

The lyrics above are from a well know rock-and-roll song of the 1970's. The meaning of the lyrics speak to me of living an authentic life. There is no free lunch in the universe; good people are not entitled to better lives. The Divine does not rearrange molecules on demand, and prayer is not an opportunity to submit my Christmas list to my Creator.

Life don't come easy. We push out of our mother's wombs into the cold bright world gasping for air, and so it begins. Yet just because it don't come easy does not mean life needs to be hard. My life is what I make of it. As a co-creator in my life I engage in active imagining of the life I want to experience, and through the power of attraction I draw my desired life to me.

I live in a magical, mythical, mysterious universe on a living planet which brings with it all the necessities for life. The great mystery is evidenced in all the world's creation myths. As a temporary mortal visitor I am blessed with my own unique gifts, talents and skills which allow me to be of service to others. I am an extension of the divine which exists within me and all around me.

The separation that seems to exist between me, you, the moon, and the stars is an illusion. Physicists know that Space is something we really don't yet fully comprehend, and that all of what we see is somewhat distorted; not at all what it appears to be. The relatively recent discovery of Dark Matter poses challenging questions about what we actually know about the amazing, spectacular and complex Universe in which we exist.

As my own insight of the universe evolves and unfolds I am changing the lyrics to my life song from It don't come easy to It comes easy and effortlessly, and it comes beautifully and mysteriously.
