Busy Being Fabulous (Manifesting

Busy Being Fabulous (Manifesting Potential)
(by Susan James)

Thanks to the Eagles latest CD , I've had the theme for this story for a
few weeks. Meaning before the current news of Madonna and Guy
Ritchie's split. Most people who know me, know that I'm a pure
Madonna fan. That's not changed at all, nor is it changing the
direction of this essay, in fact, it may enhance it.

The song by the Eagles, 'Too Busy Being Fabulous' is about a fellow
who's unhappy with the direction of his wife's life. He's unhappy that
she, from his perspective, has chosen her career over family.

Let's look at this from her perspective and from the place of personal
expansion. Human judgement and adherence to 'should and should
not' rules designed by humans based on various religious guidelines
from long ago, would judge the girl as being 'not a good person' for
splitting up her home in pursuit of her own so labeled selfish desires.

We can use the same Biblical guidelines to support her 'going for it'
in her choice of livelihood; The Parable of The Talents (Matthew 25:
14-30), that is unless we also adhere to the voice of 'the man is head
of the household and what he says is what IS to happen'. No matter
his place or interest in his own personal development.

The Bible is full of wonder..both wondering and wonderment. It's a
basis for many of us on  various potential paths. Many of us begin
with in-depth study of it, and it leads some of us to new places.

New places is where personal expansion takes us. Success is woven
in and out of personal expansion. The ups and downs of life are there.
The carrot and the gold ring, as well at the pot of gold at the end of the
rainbow are all found within personal expansion.

We won't get there by burying our talent and gifts. We won't
personally expand into higher places, higher vibrations, higher and
more dynamic spirituality, by burying our talent.

Do our talents and reaching our potential have to tear apart our
relationships? The answer is, of course not.

The question may come down to our understanding of why we may be
driven in one way or the other. How that answer affects the direction
of our relationships then becomes a result of our choice. This is until
we teach ourselves the higher skill of  rising above 'cause and effect'.

Is it a bad thing, are we bad people if we choose to go for something
that enhances us personally in some way, but appears to affect others
in ways that don't make them happy?

No, it's not a bad thing. It's a 'thing'.
It is what it is.

In my own life, I am very busy being Fabulous. Just ask anyone who's
in my space. Why am I busy being Fabulous?

I have this one life, currently.
I choose to be the best I can be and offer the best to others that I can.
Some choose to come along for the ride with me. Some do not.
We all have our own path to follow.
Somewhere along the line in our expansion, we come to know 'that'
is our main responsibility to this life and to others on a more subtle

Does this have to tear apart our relationships?
Of course not.

When we reach the place that we know how to design our lives as we
prefer, then all that we ever want, and more, including our
relationships remain in tact and prosper along with our own Busy
Being Fabulous Selves.

Have you buried your Fabulous Self?
If so, never mind, why....
Get the shovel!
