Taking it One Step at a Time

In healing and in life, it’s so important to take things at the right pace. Try not to rush or push, though the temptation may be great. I’ve heard it said that “life works itself out in the process of life itself,” and I think that’s a great way of putting it.

I used to try to rush many things in my life, from school to work to success to marriage. I pushed hard against the current of life to try to make things work in the way I believed they were supposed to. After connecting with God and my heart, I don’t do that as much (though I still do from time to time). 

Living in union with the divine in your soul will allow you to move just enough to let life move through you. You don’t have to force anything or make it happen. Just change your awareness to that which you wish to experience. You can do this because you also are a part of God’s heart.

It doesn’t have to be hard or difficult. This is your birthright. Live into your daily experience and let yourself grow like a bud. A flower cannot be rushed but blooms at the perfect time. So it is with you. 

May you experience the perfection in your life as it is in this moment.

The Right Time

As I’ve come to believe in God and in a Divine aspect to our lives, I’ve started to believe in the power of timing. I don’t think timing is something we have control over- at least not consciously, for most of us. Divine timing is something that seems to make things happen in the right way at the right time, even if we can’t always see it in the moment.

Sometimes things seem to happen late, or not at all, or happen too early. But in the end, it’s all happening in divine timing. I can’t claim to understand why this is true, but I have experienced it in my own life, over and over again.

Is there something you’re waiting for? Is there something you’re praying for? Sometimes conditions have to be just right for it to come about. Maybe your heart needs more time to be prepared, maybe something around you needs to change. You can’t force something to happen before its time. Like a seed growing into a flower, a fruit, a tree – you can’t force the seed to grow before it’s ready. It just has to unfold. It needs the right amount of sunlight and water, and then it can blossom at the perfect time.

I believe the same is true for you. It is all going to happen at the perfect time, whatever it is you’ve been waiting and praying for. In God’s time.
