The Three Rules of Work:
1. Out of clutter, find simplicity.
2. From discord, find harmony.
3. In the middle of difficulty, lies opportunity
-Albert Einstein
Last week I allowed myself to be totally out of harmony as I wrote  about when we had almost a week offline. Some of that spilled over into this week too.
What happened to simple and easy my mantra for 2009?Einstein’s saying caught my attention and spoke to me.

1. Find Simplicity

Out of clutter, find simplicity.

Yes I have been clearing the clutter, even though bags of stuff has been donated and mounds of paper recycled there is more to go.The goal is to have simplicity reign by the end of April.

The next move  I won’t be taking some of the boxes we brought with us from Sydney that have recently been cleared and still one is unopened. That’s 20 years of my textile clothing and artwork slide collection, a digitizing project.

I remember Carole Fogarty writing about whether one needs 6 salad bowls, in my case 3 and a half dinner sets?

What do you do with the family “so- called heirlooms” when there is no-one in the family who wants to clean the silver cutlery etc? I have some beautiful ruby red sherry glasses too. Anyone still drink sherry?

I know when I have less “stuff” around I have more time too. Life does become simpler, There is less to take care of.

2. Find Harmony

From discord, find harmony.

This morning I have  got ISP harmony with the wonderful tech support at our new provider Internode after many hours of sorting out filters, line drop outs, our voip is working and when we can go naked, don’t you love that phrase, simplicity will reign too.

I know that I do find harmony within when I am by the sea.

Find (Lies) Opportunities.

In the middle of difficulty, lies opportunity

I often forget that out of difficulty often opportunities do arise. it was out of ISP difficulty that we now have a great ISP where after a bumpy start, I know get through to tech support quicly, they understand what I am talking about, they have a record of what’s happening. This morning I thought maybe we would have to replace the Zyxel modem that no-0ne supports. The router/modem  is good, and seems we have fixed the drop outs.

Now that is abundant. I feel very grateful.

I can now think of many more instances where these 3 aspects of “work” have created more abundance, and I feel grateful for.

What have you attracted today to enhance your abundance?



PS: Just found this in Face Book Abraham Hicks group

Is harmony one note that everybody is singing? Or is it a whole lot of notes that are in vibrational harmony with each other? When you give your attention to anything, the Universe responds to it. When two of you are giving your attention to it, and there is no contradiction, it is a powerful vortex. That’s why a gathering such as this can achieve a great deal as you come together in greater and greater harmony and take thought beyond that which it has been before.
