Tadhg’s Journal: So, What Do You Do When Nothing Happens?


Excerpt from Tadhg’s Journal: What do you do when nothing happens? Today was such a day for me – not that I’m complaining. It’s just that I like to keep active, but I realise that sometimes its good to slow down or even pause. But, today I didn’t have much choice. Nothing seemed to happen. It was as if time had stood still.

I read a lot, as you know, and some of the books I read are spiritual, motivational, even mystic-al etc, and there certainly does seem a lot going on in some of those authors lives. But, you and I know that not every day is like that.

True, if you read and believe some of those books, you’ll find that every day that that Christian author opens their front door they are greeted by the seraphim. Or the Arch Druid climbs out of bed only to find breakfast is being cooked by a whole ‘platoon’ of obliging elemental spirits, or a light-worker sees auras around everyone and can instantly diagnose a suitable remedy for their ailment or predicament and does so, or a latter-day Celt has discovered the translation of an ‘unknown rune’. At least that’s what you are told is happening if you read some of those books. And, it can leave one with the impression that everything is happening to everyone else, but not to you and I.  Please, avoid those books.

Ofcourse, there are amazing days where great things happen. Co-incidence or God-incidence! Synchronicity? Cledon? And, more! But, there will be days when, seemingly, nothing happens. Today was such a day for me. Do you have days like that?

I could bore you by saying that today the highlight was that I searched high and low to buy a tin of pease pudding, had my ears syringed as my tinnitus isn’t getting any better and I have a hearing test booked for next week, or I could tell you that three replacement cinctures arrived by post today, but I wont. Oh, too late!

But as I type this, I know it’s really been a great day. God, the Source, Spirit has been active as always; the world is still spinning; babies were born and parents lovingly looked on and smiled; someone got a promotion; many ate well; my heart is still beating within my chest (and so is yours); and we have great family and friends, and more.

I have a feeling that my boat
has struck, down there in the depths,
against a great thing.
And nothing
happens! Nothing…Silence…Waves…
–Nothing happens? Or has everything happened,
and are we standing now, quietly, in the new life?

Juan Ramon Jimenez

Today, a thousand and one things really happened of which we were unaware. The Source blessed you, angels lovingly guided you, elementals gaily dance around you, the Universe smiled at you, and amazing discoveries were made that will impact your life, Celt or not. In the small things, as well as the large and profound things, in the mundane and common-place a lot happened, today; and I’d say that that was a miracle. A lot really did happen today?

So, how was your day?

  1. I do enjoy reading someone who speaks with a pure and literate voice. Thank you. And how did my day go? Packing bags, getting ready for yet another trip, this time looking for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.



    • Thank you for your kind comments, Don. I’m glad to hear that, if you’re not out and about exploring, that you’re preparing for the next trip. Remember, in searching for that pot of gold, it’s the journey that counts. And the ‘gold’? Oh, You’ve already got it! Godspeed.
