Shelora sent HEAVEN #2678 Seek Simplicity, March 25, 2008 the same day it came out to her many friends with a spectacular accompanying email.
The subject title of her email was: For all you control freaks out there!
Imagine, Shelora also sent me what she wrote! Here it is:
I have been grappling with this whole issue of my need to control lately, and this morning, as if in answer to my question of how to give it up, once and for all, I received this wonderful "Heavenletter." HEAVEN #2678 Seek Simplicity, March 25, 2008
Please read this Heavenletter in the spirit in which it is meant, a means of letting go of the need to rearrange and manage and supervise everything (OUCH!) and instead surrender and allow Heaven to reveal itself on Earth, already, always present in everything and nothing.
This letter for me is the most exquisite unravelling of what my impatience has been about, and I wanted to share it with you.
I also want to apologize to any of you that I have been impatient with or tried to"fix" or "tell" or "teach" something to, as if I knew better than you, and there was something wrong with you.
This says it better than I ever could, and I want you all to know I am finally listening and I got it!
I trust you will forgive me.
Seeking Simplicity begins:
"When you are impatient, you are trying to take control. Controlling is not the same as leading. Leaders lead by inspiration."
Shelora also wrote to me personally:
I started to examine all the aspects of my presentation and way of being in the world that keep me from being the fully powerful and fully self-expressed leader that I am capable of being, totally there for others and responsible for how I come across.
I really never had any clue why I was coming across as all about ME! Now I get it. I was talking AT people, telling them something instead of being with them, just fully present with them. And with myself. Not trying to manage, supervise, control tell or teach or do anything TO them. GAWD!!!! No wonder I was talking so much. I thought I was supposed to KNOW!
Simplicity is allowing yourself to just BE, not KNOW or DO anything about it!
Ding ding ding ding DING!

Ahem, it so happens I have a long list of people I could send a similar letter to, but I just haven't gotten quite that far yet. Thanks for being such an example, Shelora!
P.S. Shelora, are you also the dynamo who is working on a special project with a monarch in the Middle East?
