We tend to hold onto our beliefs tightly and when something comes up against them, we ignore it if we’re not willing to bend. We see what we want to see.
At the same time, we might be searching for clarity and direction in our lives while wearing this voluntary blindfold.
Seeing things selectively is never beneficial. We learn the most about ourselves when we face the things that challenge us. By hiding from these potential revelations, we undoubtedly obscure other aspects of our experience.
It’s impossible to live fully while maintaining surface involvement. To feel all that life has to offer, one has to be willing to go deep. Regardless of what the journey looks like on the outside, there is an accompanying inner journey that requires exploration, at times excavation.
Like lovers who risk heartbreak, we must be willing to dive into the intensity. We must be willing to bear our unprotected, raw selves to discover the touch of something exquisite. The unwillingness to do so will keep all rewards out of reach.
Every success story has the element of the unknown. Whether it’s wondering if one has what it takes, or how one’s efforts will be received, or the logistics of things, there will usually be a missing piece.
It’s not your place to have it all figured out so don’t bother. The only thing that is certain is that your greatness will not manifest without some degree of risk and a good deal of faith.
There are several ways to get where you want to go. Many of them are impossible for you to imagine because Divine orchestration can intervene in any way at any time.
However, there will be periods when you feel like your back is up against the wall. You may feel panicked by the sense of restriction. Rather than succumb to the fear or start blaming yourself for not having acted sooner, reframe the tension.
Your choices “drying up” may just be the Universe helping to coral you in a particular direction. You still have a choice to accept it or not. Breathe through it and remember that what feels confining is really just encouraging focus.
