Let’s Get Real: We’ve heard it over and over again. The only constant is change. Change is Good! When you are through changing, you are through. The key is seeing change as an opportunity for growth.
We can nod our heads thinking…yep that’s right but “I don’t like change!” This sucks! It is uncomfortable! This wasn’t my plan! Change can be more challenging for the goal oriented, Type A, charge ahead, Let’s get ‘ur done types. These are MY goals…this is the linear process…so why do I keep getting knocked off the pony?
Let’s go back to basics. Your very existence has such great and irreplaceable value that it’s impossible to even imagine the full extent of it.
There is a place that you are to fill and no one else can fill, something you are to do, which no one else can do.” There is a perfect picture of this in the super-conscious mind…the mind of God/Universe/Spirit within each of us. It is the perfect plan…the divine design; for there is a divine design for each person. This perfect plan usually flashes across the consciousness as an unattainable ideal or something too good to be true.
This grand picture is man’s true destiny or destination flashed to him/her from the Infinite Intelligence which is within you. The challenge for many is we are ignorant of our true destinies (plural!!) and we are striving for things and situations which do not belong to us and would only bring failure and dissatisfaction if attained. Hmmm CHANGE!!!
So how the heck do we know our true destiny? Is it the one that flows with ease and grace? Do we go with the subjects in school that are the easiest to master? Do we listen to our hunches/intuition?
If our individual plans are implanted prior to birth why are we in such a muddle? If only our parents could “see” us…the real us and help love and support our natural gifting. Yet many parents want their off-spring to go to the school “they” think would be the most advantageous. How many have earned degrees in Math who end up being artists or inventors…their true calling. Well if it is a calling doesn’t it stand to reason that you need to listen? Once your heart aligns with your true purpose for this life you become sure of who you are and what you stand for. You walk in Knowledge, Clarity and Confidence. You close your ears to the nay sayers. You become hard to fool because you have a clear perspective on the world and see things for what they really are. You become fiercely aware of what is right and wrong and are not afraid to speak your mind. You become innovative, forward thinking, creating ideas and words that inspire, spark imaginations and powerfully connect. Yes!!! Create to CHANGE!
Quite often when we either do not hear the call or choose not to listen to the Infinite Intelligence whispering in our ears…then they begin to shout! Our minds go yeah, yeah, yeah…later. I am busy accomplishing THESE goals. They shout once again THOSE GOALS ARE NOT YOURS. I have a perfect plan for you! Yeah, yeah…go away. Can’t you see I am concentrating? Their reply…Yup! And I love you so much and need you to fulfill you purpose so the world does not spin off its axis that…WHAP!! Off the pony you fly! Ouch! (Change often begins in shock or pain). You are stunned long enough to stop and re-evaluate. Ohhh! Now I see. I wasn’t that far off the path. I just need to tweak it a bit. A one degree change of view and you see an entirely different path before you.
Yes Change can be uncomfortable, disconcerting and fearful…that is when your hardened shell cracks and you are willing to look at your circumstances differently. So once you have shaken the dust off…here’s to making it happen, to going the distance, to making a difference, to ignoring the critics, to living the impossible dream, to being great, to being YOU and remember…Blessed are the cracked for they let their light shine!
