We run and run and run. We run here. We run there. We run from and we run to. We are a generation on the go and we have adopted the belief that we must be running to something in order to get it. After all, it will never just come to us unless we are doing our part … right?!
Is that true?
Wouldn’t it be thrilling to know that we do not have to “Do” anything and opportunity will just show up? Yes, I know there are those of you who get a thrill out of “Doing” because it gives you a level of accomplishment and satisfaction but let me ask you this;
If you could achieve the same results from hard action by simply letting life come to you, how would that feel?
I invite you to feel it …
Imagine this: You’re sitting at the edge of the city in the park where you’re engaging in a delightful conversation with a dear friend and you’re both sipping on your favorite beverage. The birds are singing the children are over on the slide enjoying their thrills, a couple strolls by holding hands and perhaps there’s a river at the edge where several rafters casually coast by floating on the current. You are enjoying yourself immensely. There are no worries, you’re not in a hurry to get somewhere, and you don’t have a thing that you have to do or responsibilities that are pressing on your time. You’re just enjoying your connection and conversation with your friend completely in the moment.
Now imagine on the other side of the city, there’s a person walking the streets. This person has a destination to get to and each stride in their steps gets them that much closer. Step by step they move closer and closer. They are given a mission and a destination by the Universe and they are on the move. This person has not announced their intention. They have not shouted their plan to anyone. They are just walking effortlessly with intent. You may see them in the crowd of people as they move through, eyes straight ahead, no distractions, just moving right along. The wind comes, they keep moving. A car honks on the street, they keep moving. A child jumps in front of them; they move around them and keep on moving.
Do you know where they are going?
They are coming to you. There are no detours to take. There’s nothing holding them back. There are no other agenda’s on their schedule to distract them. They don’t need you to do anything to prepare for them. They do not need you to be someplace else. They do not need you to prepare a meal. They do not need you to make any announcements or to call to them. They do not need you to sacrifice anything. They do not need you to race towards them because you really don’t know where they are anyway. You don’t even have to think about them coming. You don’t have to wish for them or will them to come. You don’t even have to pray they’ll come … if you don’t want to. All they need is for you to sit tight and they will arrive on schedule … not a minute too early and not a minute too late. They will arrive right on time. They are on a mission and there is nothing stopping them … EVER!
Whew!!! Now you can rest and go back to enjoying your beverage, the companionship and the great outdoors. Breathe, live, enjoy, laugh, embrace the moment and just be you. Isn’t that nice?
Life will come to you if you let it. When you step in and try to prepare, make adjustments, and put things in order, could it be possible that you may be causing a delay? All life needs for you to do is sit and wait … seriously! Life will show up … Guaranteed!
“Oh” but you say, “God helps those who help themselves”. I must ask, what does that really mean? What if all that means is for you to stay open and ready to receive? What if all you have to do is be willing and available?
It’s just a thought and if you still think that you need to be doing, then by all means go ahead. If you’re getting tired and feel like you’re spinning your wheels, or you’re getting weak with a heavy burden then stop, have a cup of tea, invite a friend over for some delightful and engaging conversation, listen to the birds sing and just rest.
Life and opportunity come no matter what. Why not enjoy yourself and trust the Divine process?
