Last week, I talked about my friend who’s recently discovered she’s a piano prodigy at 36 years of age. She’s playing music like Bach after one lesson and is already signed up for a fall concert in the neighborhood.
Well, the story gets better. And I have to tell you, folks, this is what happens when you follow your bliss.
She has now been invited to play at The Kennedy Center. Yes, the Kennedy Center. The one that presidents and actors grace as a matter of course. The one that plays Broadway shows like the current “Book of Mormon” or hosts famous musicians like Diana Krall. It is incredible! She’s only been playing the piano for over a month.
When she told me the news last night, I told her it was a miracle. But also not a surprise. This is what happens when we receive our life purpose, our bliss. Everything in our life starts to flow. New experiences show up out of the blue like this one. It’s confirmation that we are on the right path and need to trust it.
And our happiness explodes.
She gave us an impromptu piano recital last night after I’d finished jumping up and down in excitement, and the music she created melted my heart. She is so gifted, and I can feel the star rising in her, the star of her true self shining out in the world.
This is coming home to yourself. Finding your purpose. Being widely happy for no reason.
It’s the flow.
This is like watching an incredible book or movie in the making. I have never thought about writing about a prodigy before now, but we shall see. Regardless, it’s a heck of a story, whether real life or fiction.
So, where are you flowing or not flowing with your own bliss?
