We live in busy and fast changing times. And this spills over to what we expect from life too. We want things now! This same attitude crosses over to personal change also. I’ve done the exercises, but nothing seems to be changing!
“I’m doing everything they say to do, but nothing’s happening!!!” Sound familiar? It has now been a couple of days and you are not seeing the changes that you hoped for?
In this fast paced age, we seem to lack patience. Imagine planting a seed and checking it every day to see it it has sprouted. After a couple of days we dig up the seed to see what’s going on. We put it back in the ground and wait again, still nothing then dig it up again!
We know that if we plant a seed in the garden, water it, tend it well and weed around it, that it will eventually sprout, break through the surface and point a leaf at the sun. Slowly as the days go by, more leaves appear, the stem thickens and grows taller, until eventually you have full grown plant. All the time you are tending it, nurturing it. An acorn sprouts into a mighty oak, given enough time.
New thoughts and ideas are like a seed. They need time to germinate and take hold. They need to be tended and nurtured as well. We need to develop the belief that change will eventuate, if we are patient. Remember that ‘Energy flows where attention goes’.
Stay on the path and your faith will be rewarded.
until next time
