We ALL have an agenda! Yep! You, me, the Queen, that kid over there, ALL of us!
Having an agenda can be helpful or not so much, and it is not necessarily a bad thing (ask yourself whether or not your agenda for that moment is beneficial to you and then decide), but it IS something to be aware of!
It colours all of our interactions and it shapes our experiences, so when we can KNOW exactly what (or at least have a rough idea of what) our agendas in any particular situation may be, we can modify our reactions and directions at any given time if we choose to! This allows us to remain calmer, more centered and to become less entangled in circumstances and exchanges that may be MUCH different than they appear without the honest awareness of what WE PERSONALLY expect from them! We learn to find ways to fulfill OUR OWN expectations WITHOUT relying on others to do it for us! In short - we find TOTAL FREEDOM!!!!
Many times the agendas we act upon turn out not even to be our own, but instead are something we "picked up" somewhere, inherited, or just have (although we may not even know why). When we become aware of this, then we can see our own motivations, needs, expectations, etc, in much clearer detail and WHO doesn't want more of THAT in their lives!?!
The bottom line here is that AWARENESS CHANGES OUR PERSPECTIVES and with that shift come whole new and improved opportunities to navigate life, relationships and so much more!
So, if you just stop to listen, what's YOUR agenda trying to tell you?
Well, now that I have fulfilled my agenda of offering something I hope is helpful to the world today, I am off!
Have a wonderful day!!! Peace, love and many blessings!

So think of it like this - you and The Divine Creator have made a mutual decision to go into business together! Congratulations!
You have also worked out what roles and responsibilities you will each be playing in this joint venture and GUESS WHAT?!? YOU are the idea person! The GRAND DESIGNER! The head of the company! YOU are the face of your entire corporation!
Holy crap, right!?! Now that's A LOT of responsibility!! That makes YOU the BOSS!! Now let this sink in! YOU are the boss of the WHOLE shebang! YEP! Sweet, isn't it!?!
Now, hold it! Waaaait a minute! What's the catch? There MUST be a CATCH! So what is this so-called "partner" of yours going to doing if YOU are up front SLAVING away with this whole "running the show" stuff? Where will The Divine Creator be during all of this effort and responsibility now laying before you, huh? Slacking in the back or napping in a corner no doubt! This is garbage! THIS must be the CATCH!!! Sure! You're "equal partners", alright! YOU do ALL of the WORK and The Divine Creator reaps the benefits! SAME! OLD! STORY! Forget it! You're nobody's fool! You are OUT! Let The Ol' Divine Creator figure this one out alone because you have BETTER things to do! Besides, if you were going to be the head of the company anyway, who needs a partner - you can do it yourself and by golly you will try!
Did you relate to this story in any way? Did you buy into it, or get caught up in it? Did it tick your boxes or get you going? Do you also believe there must be a "catch" because being named the "face of your own corporation" seems just too good to be true? Do you believe you are better off doing it on your own?
Well, if your answers to those questions are yeses, than I have two very important words for you - GOOD and LUCK! Thankfully, the story I spun above is only PARTIALLY accurate!
Yep! Whether you remember it or not, you and The Divine Creator really HAVE decided to go into business together, and you both HAVE chosen for you to run the company! For real!
Honest, and if that alone isn't great enough, GET THIS - while YOU get to serve as the head designer and creative force behind which way your company (which, in case you haven't noticed by now, is really your LIFE) progresses and what it creates and produces, your trusty partner in crime The Divine Creator handles EVERYTHING ELSE! Uh-huh! EVERYTHING else!
The Divine Creator is your workforce, production team, financier, research and development crew, and delivery service all rolled into one! Just think, you pictured The Divine slacking in the back, too! Better think AGAIN! What is also excellent about this arrangement, is that The Divine WANTS to do all of this work for your company! It loves it! It WANTS you in the driver's seat and it will do ANYTHING and everything possible to support you and your decisions! After all, you ARE equal partners in the company, remember!?!
When YOU succeed in your position and with your company, your PARTNER The Divine Creator succeeds with you (and vice versa, of course)! Now how in the heck could you possibly think anything else was even fathomable? You and The Divine Creator are an unstoppable, success-is-your-only-frigging-option kind of team! Growth, creation, and expansion are the goals and the company's only TRUE agenda! The other stuff is just a cherry on top!
By now, you may be starting to see the picture a bit more clearly here! When your life (aka your company) is not running as well as, or in the directions you want it to be, it is certainly NOT because your partner has been slacking, but because you are either NOT being clear enough on what the work order is meant to be, or that when the wonderful work is being offered to you, YOU, as the front person, are REJECTING it because you somehow think you could do better on your own (that is referred to as "control" or "illusion" and NEITHER one are real or offer any benefit to you or your company) or you are just simply not holding up your end of the responsibility!
NEWS FLASH! You CAN'T do it on your own! That is why the wonderfully supportive, compassionate Divine Creative Force that loves you SO MUCH, agreed to let you lead while it does all of the work! What more could we possibly ask for? It has already been given right to us if we would just peek out of our management agendas for long enough to realize!
So there you have it! Congratulations on being the head of your own company! You always have been! The question is, now that you know the key to the office has been in your pocket all along and your workforce is ready to produce, just exactly WHAT do you want YOUR COMPANY to create? Part of the fun is finding out! See you in the "Fortunate 5 000 000 000"!!
Peace, Love, and many blessings!
