Carl Jung had Philemon, I have Jake, as an alter-ego/ever-present companion/guide. My role is to get out of the way with my plans/agendas/goals/expectations/ knowledge/desires/timetables/wishes/wants/etc. and let Jake do it what/when/where/how it needs to be done. "IT" is like grass growing, flowers blooming, fruit ripening, chicks hatching, birds migrating, the tide coming and going... Everything in the natural world happens in its own time, in its own way. Jake is my contact point/person with the natural world. I didn't make Jake up. Jake appeared in a dream, laughing at me for taking things so seriously. Jesus and the Buddha could have used Jake in their life. They would have had a better outcome, and laughed a lot more. Jake is with me to remind me to wait it out in an "everything has its own time" kind of way. People take their own lives because they don't believe in waiting it out. "Just relax into it," says Jake. "Trust me to work it out, when, where and how it needs to be worked out." I don't have any responsibility in the matter beyond relaxing into the present, and no say in the matter at all. I let Jake do it. Now that you know about Jake and Philemon, relax into your dreams and see who meets you there, smiling and laughing, winking and saying, "I'm here. I have you covered. Let me do it." Listen to her/him. Relax and enjoy the wonder of the ride.
