This past Monday I went in to the dreaded day job, knowing that my weekly hours had been reduced to a pittance.

Visions of Top Raman and toast danced across my mind's eye.

I sought and received a professional astrology reading on Wednesday.  The astrologer looked at me and said, "You need to take the plunge.  No more weekend warrior.  Time to play with the Big Kids."  He gave me all sorts of advice that will help immensely as time goes by.

Thursday (yesterday), my wife (who has worked at the same dreaded day job as me for the past five years) came home and announced that she was quitting her job to help her father with the family business in southern Colorado, among other callings.  She's now free to drive down there as often as is required.  Just like that, she is done with that ol' paycheck-to-paycheck life.

So here we are, yes?  Living on borrowed time, faced with the life that's been waiting for us for the longest time.

Oh, sure, I've been doing readings for years and years -- nearly 20, in fact.  And I can honestly say that I've loved every one of those readings, always ending them up with the thought, "Geez, this is what I should be doing for a living."  Some of my clients tell me the same thing.

So here it is, then -- the moment when "what I should be doing for a living" commences.

You are witness to a line drawn in the sand.  Back there behind the line:  the old life, filled with false security, limitation and stasis.  In front of the line:  readings, workshops, classes and retreats, all of it based on what I've been gifted with during these many years in the cave.

Oh, there's a little anxiety over the money thing, mixed with self-questioning and second-guessing.  Mostly, however, there is excitement and anticipation, knowing that I could not be more ready.

A Curator of Clarity is now OPEN, ready to get down to the business of Truth.

I am ever so sorry to read that work options, and income are in decline for you, but hopefully in this vacuum your true work in counseling charismatic contemplatives will blossom, as the gig in Hawaii could be of great benefit to that noble work. Perhaps it is also time for you to transform your present writing regimen into chapters of a book?
