I have freedom of choice. But is my choice who I really am? Am I choosing from my Divine Self? Is my choice hurting anyone? But what if it feels right? But everyone else says it’s wrong. What do I do then?

Seems like you have a very difficult decision to make.

Who me? No.

Then what’s all that about?

I dunno. It just popped into my head this morning.

Does it always happen?

What, the popping into my head thing?

Yes.

All the time! That’s where my tweets are coming from. Some are from what’s happening in my day to day life, of course. But once in a while something will pop into my head that just doesn’t make sense. Initially, anyway.

Like?

Like…Um…Let’s see…Oh yeah. Daddy Long Legs. Oh, wait…No. That came from that huge spider I saw in the kitchen the other day.

So what did you do?

With the spider?

No, with the words Daddy Long Legs.

Oh. Usually, I’ll look it up online. Google it.

So what’s Daddy Long Legs all about?

It’s a silent film starring Mary Pickford. But I must have watched the remake or musical version of it at one time or another. Otherwise, how would I suddenly remember it?

So now you’re saying, you’ve known about it all along.

Well, yeah. If I’ve never heard of it, how would I know there’s such a thing as Daddy Long Legs?

That’s because your soul knows everything.

It does?

Of course it does. Does God know everything?

Like, ya.

Your soul is God. God knows everything. So the soul knows everything. When you’re here in this realm you forget everything in order to remember.

Everything?

No, not everything, dear one. Where would the fun be in that? Anyway. So what’s Daddy Long Legs all about?

The actual film is on Wiki. I tried watching it last night but it made me sleepy. Film-making has come a long, long, looooong way since then. But in a nutshell, it’s about an orphan girl who has an anonymous rich benefactor. It’s a love story, of course. Eventually, she gets into a love triangle where she falls in love with the brother of her classmate and her mysterious benefactor. Whom she calls Daddy Long Legs. Because she happened to see his long-legged shadow at one time.

I thought you didn’t watch the movie.

I didn’t. I read the plot.

So who did she choose?

What do you mean? Who did Mary Pickford choose from the love triangle?

Yes.

She chose Daddy Long Legs.

Why?

I don’t know.

Wouldn’t you like to know?

Um…No, not really.

Why not?

Honestly? I’d rather watch something else. Like maybe something new.

Fair enough.

So anyway. We’ve gone off track.

No, we haven’t.

Huh?

Never mind, dear one. Let’s get back on track. So your question is, “What do I do when a decision feels right but everyone else says it’s wrong?”

Yup.

Have you ever been in such a situation?

Yeah. It was when I had to make a decision to leave my previous beliefs. It was hard because of my parents. We’ve been going to church since the day I was born. But eventually, Mum and Dad accepted it. So they went on their own.

What about your kids?

I gave them permission to go with Grandma and Grandpa on Sundays if they wanted to. Well…Needless to say, I guess.

Any other time that you had to make a very difficult decision?

Yes. It was when I heard this song on Mum’s radio. Tony Bennett’s Watch What Happens.

That song decided a decision for you?

No. I decided a decision. Nobody knew it that time, but before I heard that song it was like I was in a wrestling match with myself. I’m acting as per usual, you know, living life day to day. But inside it was like I was going out of my mind! Creating your reality was hard! Very, very hard.

You were in love, you mean?

You can call it whatever you want. But it was really hard! Oh, there have been signs, telling me exactly what to do. Like Neale’s daily email. They were spot on with my situation at the time. But I just kept ignoring him. And then I heard that song, Watch What Happens on Mum’s radio in the kitchen. And to cut a long story short, here I am.

Let’s rewind a little bit, dear one. What exactly did you do after you heard that song?

Let’s just say I broke some rules, okay?

Okay.
