Another Day…Another City :)

Published February 24, 2014 by Maryann Kate

Okay okay…I know that I’ve been extremely absent over these past few weeks. But so much has happened! I’ve been adjusting to living in a completely new place. There have been so many moments of learning, which I am doing in every moment of every day. I will be posting many blogs over the upcoming weeks to give you detailed accounts of what has been going on with me. I will split everything up into smaller posts so that it is more manageable to read and write. Here’s where I’m at right now…

It’s been almost 3 weeks since I arrived in Australia and it has been different than I had anticipated or “expected” it to be. I had envisioned myself in the wild with kangaroos hopping around and cute Aussie men asking me where I was from (or any Australian for that matter). This has not yet been the case. What I have realized is that no matter where you are in the world, whether it’s New York, Los Angeles, London, Paris, Sydney, if you’re in a big city, then city life is what you will experience (that is if you choose to experience it). The hectic and fast-paced world of the city was what I was trying to escape by traveling over here. Now I find myself surrounded by tourists and engulfed by big cities.

I made the mistake of expecting what it would be like over here. Instead of being open to whatever was to come my way, I had planned it out in my mind. You could imagine that this set me up for a bit of a culture shock and slight disappointment when I found myself in the center of Sydney (which really reminds me of New York City). But what if it was all my perception? What if I could find peace and tranquillity even though I was in a hectic and fast-paced city? Everyday that I was in Sydney for the first week, I was envisioning leaving the city to find a quiet area in the country. I thought that it would make me happy to leave. But I find myself in the city of Melbourne and I still feel the same. I want to escape the city so badly. It’s a different place but the same issues are coming up. What is happening?

My revelation for today is that I must make the best of whatever situation that I find myself in. I cannot simply escape the busyness that is life. I found this book at the Melbourne city library today (which is where I currently am) and I highly recommend reading it (especially for my spiritually connected friends). It’s called Shift Happens! By Robert Holden. It was truly what I needed to read today and I even got myself a temporary library membership in order to take it out. My first of many quotes from the book is this…

“The world changes when you do. All your suffering is rooted in a single superstition which is that you believe you live in a world when the truth is the world lives in you.”

How profound is that?! This book is amazing and it made me realize (or reminded me anyway) that my world is the way it is because I am the way I am. If I want my world to change then I need to change. To wrap this post up for today I am going to quote the great William Shakespeare… “There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so.” 

I believe good things are coming into my experience and so it is. I will do my very best to remain positive at all times because it is all about the journey after all. There is no need for discouragement or anger because everything is happening as it should in this very moment. It’s all about trusting the Universe and staying present. Oh and above all else, keeping my thoughts and desires for the highest and greatest good for all concerned. Until next time my friends…

Much love and light always!
