Turning points are inevitable and the motion life never really stops; yet pauses do happen during the changes of the cycles and seasons.
These are moments when the world seems to hold its breath while a shift occurs. Sensitive people can sense these transitions within their own systems. Take the shift from winter to spring—while there still may be snow on the ground, the promise of spring is felt by those who are sensitive and who feel the quickening that happens beneath the earth; the daffodils are ready to come up even though there are no early shoots above the ground, a sensitive person and feel the stirrings of spring.
If your efforts seem to be at a standstill, remember the lesson of the season of winter into spring given in the paragraph above. We trust the seasons in nature and should hold the same trust in the inevitability of change in our personal lives as well. Natural Law! Nature is an awesome instructor, especially in regard to lessons of divine or ‘right’ timing. There are times in our lives when we cannot effect change and just like the message of yesterday’s blog (Kua 13) we can only wait—just like we wait for spring each year.
Spring will come when it will—and we know it will–and there’s nothing at all we can do to hurry it along.
That’s the epitome of today’s message which is very similar to yesterdays.
Another good example of today’s message has to do with the steady improvements that come as we recover from a cold or flu. We may try to push forward as we sense an improvement from the day before but as we do, we only have to rest again—more recuperation is needed. We cannot ‘bounce back’ until our energy has been replenished.
The greater point of today’s message is that there are times when there is nothing we can do but have faith because “doing something” doesn’t help, it only hinders at these times. Certain times it is best not to interfere; oh, yes, we can try but soon find that it gets us nowhere and we need to return and release attachments.
Today’s message is to take care of yourself while a transition is occurring in your life. Look inward and be in touch with The Divine within you. Be gentle with yourself today; don’t try to accomplish too much.
Let your energy be recharged now and remember nature—the ebb and flow of the ocean. Be receptive and patient, not too outgoing.
The next few months will show steady improvement.
Contemplate the word “regeneration”.
