I can remember one moment in my life thirty-five years ago, I was having one of the worst times of my life and somebody that I actually respected as an authority said to me: give it six months and you’ll be laughing your heart out. Those words were so out of the field of play that in order for me to even hear those words, I had to shift my concept of time because what I was in… a moment that was all time.
There were no months in this time or days, or weeks or hours. It was called all time. It has always been this way and it was never going to end. It’s known as misery. I said show me. Not to the person that said, six months. They just laid out a comment but that comment tripped my wire and I said months? All I knew was misery. What is a month when you’re measuring the absolute infinite nature of misery? So I thought… well… six of them… and it broke the spell.
It broke the spell that constructed time inside my mind. Once that spell was broken, like a mirror it couldn’t be put back together.
I remember the moment, I remember the time, I remember the place, I remember the space. It was in an office on Beverly Boulevard between Robertson and San Vincente on the south side of the street. The building was turquoise but it has since been torn down. I can remember the elevator going up to that building. Everything was so clear. Sometimes you can’t remember a thing about a portion of your life but when a spell is broken you remember every detail… in the construct of a spell being broken… it intensifies… It becomes far more painful, it’s going to take tension, pressure, stress and friction to do the job.
So if there is a pain that is intensifying in your world, remember it’s just a spell getting ready to break. @gurusinghdaily (Click to Tweet!)
