What the .com!

I don't know when it happened. How. What. Nothing.

I just noticed it this morning. Where once my URL for this blog was at 'blogspot.com' it is now, 'blogspot.ca'.

I am Canadian, eh!

I don't even know why it's important -- but it sure feels good to know, my URL is Canadian -- it also feels weird.

Like..... who did it? when did they do it? Why?

Oh yes! WHY?

That age old question that drives me crazy, and drives my thinkin' into stinkin' territory sometimes.

Why is the sky blue? I asked as a child.

Why do people hurt eachother? Why is the grass green? Why did that man yell at the lady in the grocery store? Why did you hit me?

Why is never an easy question to answer when it comes to affairs of the heart, and living and loving.

Why is particularly futile, and self-defeating, when it comes to understanding why I did/do some of the things I do/did.

Why keeps me stuck in fear. It keeps me dancing around the reasons for what happened, and avoiding the what I can do to make a difference in what is happening.

'What' leads me into taking action that will bring me more of what I want in my life...

What am I going to do? What steps can I take to change direction, shift perspective, switch-up my intention?

While 'Why' leads me to frustration and dis-empowerment, 'What' leads me into empowerment.

Somebody switched the URL suffix on my blog. Maybe during the night. Maybe last week. Heck, maybe even last month and I didn't notice.

Bottomline is -- does wondering about the why get me more or less of what I want?

The Why doesn't really make a difference.  If anyone types in blogspot.com at the end of Recover Your Joy, they're still going to get here.

It's what they find here that has meaning, that adds value, that creates wonder in their life that is important for me as my intention is to create a safe and courageous space for people to discover the wonder in their lives.

I am Canadian, eh!

And this is my space where I open my mind and touch hearts to enlighten the world with light and love.

Whether I'm a .com or a .ca doesn't really make a difference -- unless I make the wondering about it more important than what I'm doing to create a world of wonder all around me!

Namaste.

I'm smiling, recalling that news story about the politician who insisted a company was a person. At least with .ca the identity is real!

Good points about asking the what and not the why!

(Still can't leave comments at Wordpress. Such a weird problem that popped up for no obvious reason. Not asking why, just what can I do.)

it's a common IT world thing

for instance, type in http://google.com and you'll get .ca ... because that is where your computer lives!

not only do we have miniscule control over some of these things, we also don't know what software is snooping over our shoulder to profile us as consumers ...etc.


it is way beyond 1984 .. and big-brother's great-grandchildren are watching

Cheers,

Amazing - co's when I look at it it shows .com.au - I guess that's because I'm an aussie :-)
