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.

Process

I personally believe we are all here to be “Christed,” that is, to learn and live into our oneness with God. Though I know it might not seem like the purpose of life from looking at the news or going to work, my experiences and the things I’ve learned have led me to this belief. In the process of being Christed and becoming aware of our union with God, we may have highs and lows. We may rise to beautiful experiences of love only to fall to depths of sadness later. I’ve definitely been there. The important thing is to be patient with yourself, and to remind yourself why you’re here. It takes time.
