I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, “A closed mouth don’t get fed”. If not, it means if you aren’t prepared for what you want, you can’t expect to get it. Maybe you’ll get what it is you want, after time and time again of life knocking and knocking at your doorstep yelling, “Take me, allow me to take care of you, I know you want this, so let me give you the things you want.”
Life shouldn’t and doesn’t have to yell and fight so hard for you to be at ease with it, if you simply prepare yourself. Let’s take relationships, more often or not we want these relationships, these things or people in our lives which will give us that certain something, we ask for it, we talk about it, but we don’t prepare ourselves to relaly accept, to relaly be okay with it coming in any form. We get so attcahed to our ideas about what “our” version of good looks like, we don’t make room to accept anything else.
How often do you express to life exactly what you want or why you want it? How can you even expect to receive the things you say you want if you are not physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually present within a wide way to receive them?
During this holiday season, on the edge of a new year, with more resolutions that we (finally) want to keep, how about we practice trying to become devoted enough to be fully present, open and willing enough within our lives to recieve what we want and remain present long enough for it to actually arrive in the form life wants us to have it… We don’t always know best, “our” good is limite dot our imagination, its just the tip of the iceberg for what’s really out there beyond our imagination.
