about change

About Watson, in the words of Holmes himself, “I am bound to say that in all the accounts which you have been so good as to give of my own small achievements you have habitually underrated your own abilities. It may be that you are not yourself luminous, but you are a conductor of light. Some people without possessing genius have a remarkable power of stimulating it. I confess, my dear fellow that I am very much in your debt.”
Suddenly I empathise with Holmes, in the shadow of a more beautiful friend, a brilliant sister a perfect brother; I did come across as a scatterbrained, frump! Of course there was no way I can underrate the ability stimulate the genius in whatever they achieved, unfortunately unlike Holmes none of them ever turned round to thank me for being less than mediocre.
I have been stuck here for so long, simply because I do not know the direction in which to go. A time like this may be the right time to declare to the universe, after the entire universe is like a helpful friend after all the universe is like a friend to whom I ask for assistance to move to the next level in my life. If the time is right the universe will respond with opportunities and offers designed to help me create the change I wish to see.
When the universe does not respond then I wonder if the universe like the science teacher needs things very clear. May be the universe appreciates clarity.
I decided to make my declaration very clear and post it at my altar. And guess what buddy I have no altar! I need to make one. That is my DIY project.
Or maybe I can write about it and place it under my pillow a good way dream of something is to sleep over it – Thus spake swamisingaramma. Instead of muttering when the neighbours horn disturbs my morning snuggle it might be a good idea to mutter that I intend to change hopefully for the better though it might be fun otherwise.
Wisecracks apart, since I want the change, I need to take responsibility, I need to recognise the signs I need to keep my chin up and in the case of no sign being visible, I need to take comfort that the bigger picture has something better.
I do love re-inventing myself. I love both the process of change and being the change.
Now don’t short change that.
