As I surrender my illusions of control, the good things occur.
This morning I learned that my new book, Reiki Psychology, has been approved for premium channel distribution. This means it will soon appear on the Apple iBookstore, as well as Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook, and other e-readers and major distributors. The print version will also be out in a few weeks.
The approval came the day after I stopped checking the approval status website every half hour.
Reiki teaches that in our highest states of harmony with what surrounds us, we learn that our mastery is not our own. By not seizing it by trying to control it, our highest destiny finds us. All we must do is state our intention and move things into place for success, and then the success occurs without us clenching and grasping.
The ability to flow around obstacles, to be patient but unyielding, to be fluid and yet powerful, is a way of water. It is miraculous that surrender works this way.
Gratitude moment: A big thank you to my editor and writing coach, Beth Townsend. She was honest when I needed it, and did not want to hear it. I am also incredibly indebted to my wife Jen who was my proofreader and book cover designer.
We do not stand alone, ever.
