Am I Ready?
We always seem to be negotiating with ourselves about self-inflicted rules and boundaries and schedules. Sure some are real and practical like getting to employed work on time for our illusory security however the rest of the time is ours to choose with what we wish.
Family takes a certain second or perhaps first but after that we get to choose what is most important depending on our dreams, visions and purpose that we have acknowledged in our life. Time, although also illusory, can expand or contract depending on our focus and depth of our participation and action. As we decide, time allows. But we ask ourselves, am I ready?; for this vision and purpose. We do not realise that we are bargaining with an uncertain self and that self will always win. I asked that question of my art coach when I was considering her business art course and she said, " If not now, when?" That did it for me. My uncertain self had no recourse since the passion to proceed with my art future was non-negotiable however hard my limited self tries to undermine and question my desires.
"If not NOW, WHEN?" Spiritually and cosmically speaking, there is no other time but NOW so why not start. Start that heartfelt project you have been putting off for ..how long? Even one small step or task each day will get you closer and closer and then it is done. So much fulfilment comes and satisfaction and joy with the process and the end product. Give that to yourself and you will have more of your enjoyable self to share with those you love and important in your life.
I finished that business course and although it opened up so many more projects and ideas, the question still comes, if not NOW, WHEN?"
If we don't have a spiritual vision, life will be very challenging as we tackle our obstacles which show up from time to time throughout our lives. We are then creating from a state of loneliness, fear, insecurity or depression. When we adopt a spiritual platform we act from courage, passion and connectedness thereby creating a beautiful state of living and loving.
If not relating from a beautiful state, we won't enjoy our relationships fully, our partners, our kids, our work and our life in general. As part of that spiritual vision, when we include regular meditative practice, we begin to see more clearly, attain states of calm, develop real confidence, grow our inner integrity and are of better service to those around us. In a beautiful state, meditation becomes more powerful when we also apply liberating wisdom; clear teachings to guide us about Truth. When both happen, meditation and clear wisdom, we become on purpose; get on the right path of the dissolution of our suffering and life becomes more sustainable in its growth of consciousness.
We also begin to have powerful experiences that can completely transform us as human beings; revolutionise our thinking, lifestyle and relationships. We achieve success in our projects, attract beautiful opportunities for wealth; form loving and lasting relationships and create potential for many innovative ventures to renew our community, our country and the world.
It does not have to be difficult to begin; just navel gaze a bit and form a picture of what is your highest desire for your life. Then allow that to sink in and become a part of you. Make a strong internal intent that this is what you want as you are focusing on your heart, your centre point. Doing the Soul Sync Meditation on a regular basis will quickly help set that intent in place and begin to transform your perception of life and bring about your spiritual vision.
