I’m sitting in looking at the view from the balcony of the Andros Holiday Hotel Restaurant. I’m thinking of hosting a retreat here next year. As I’m enjoying my “espresso freddo” and drinking in the gorgeous view, the delicious air, all of a sudden Billy Idol’s song “Eyes Without A Face” makes an abrupt change from the beautiful Greek music that’s been playing through lunch. I know it’s a gift from God.

I’ve been praying to release ANY belief, thought, decision or memory that no longer serves me. In 1985 I worked for Billy Idol’s manager. Working in the rock music world had been my goal for 10 years and I was so excited to get that job. I was a big Idol fan. It was my dream job! Well, it was in the beginning – by the end of that year I was utterly and completely miserable. I was more lost and more miserable than I’ve ever been since.

It’s very hard to believe until you live through it, but having my dream job become a nightmare was the very best thing that ever happened to me because I was literally between a rock and a hard place. It was in getting and having my dream job that I realized that getting what I wanted wasn’t what I wanted.

It’s like Jesus says in A Course in Miracles – you don’t even know what will make you happy! SO TRUE.

I was forced to begin giving up FALSE IDOLS – and Billy helped me to do that. He was a good guy and always treated me well – no complaints there. I had to come face to face with the FACT that I didn’t have a clue of how to live a great life and how to be happy. I fell flat on my face and I wanted to kill myself. I was so filled with shame. I had been so SURE that I knew what would make me happy and I could MAKE it happen. Fortunately for me, as God would have it, my thinking was all wrong.

It took me years to recover from that hard fall, but in hindsight now I’m so glad that it all happened the way it did. I used to resent the people that I thought contributed to that experience of my misery, but now I know they were angels helping me on my way. I’m so grateful!
