The Eiffel Tower and my Warrior Part — a matter of SCALE

Good Day, God!

I confess that for years I had pooh-poohed the iconic Eiffel Tower as just TOO iconic. That was before I stood underneath it and was overwhelmed by its powerful presence. At a distance it is still impressive — but one only gets 5-10% of its impact.

That seems to me to be analogous to the difference between grasping a concept and having it Act Out in our Life. That’s what happened to me this week. For years I knew that I had a Warrior Part. After all, God, I come from a long line of Vikings.
But on Wednesday June, my Spiritual Director, asked me how my Warrior Part was doing. I checked in and reported that she was quite sad. I don’t know what exactly June said, God. In fact, I never can remember what she says. But, my response mentioned that perhaps we (my various Parts) could form an alliance. DSCN7434

Wow! Immediately, my Warrior Part cheered up and spoke up! She would love to be part of an Alliance! In fact, she would like to be Chancellor of the Exchequer. Since that post was vacant I said “sure, happy to have you serve as Chancellor of the Exchequer!” It was still a “concept.”

But that evening after dinner she had me fill out a rebate form — one I hadn’t gotten to. She discovered that the offer had expired and she was upset. The next morning she called the company to complain — and by that afternoon she had collected the rebate. Then that evening before going to bed she went to a brokerage account that had been “sitting” for months and put in a buy order on three stocks. Chancellors of Exchequers don’t like money sitting around!

I’m not sure what’s next, God. But I’m looking forward to it!
