If you gathered up all the fearful thoughts that exist in the mind of the average person, looked at them objectively and tried to decide just how much good they provided that person, you would see that not some but all fearful thoughts are useless. They do no good. Zero. They interfere with dreams, hopes, desire and progress.
As you begin to live in the present moment, you will experience a subtle but profound change. Worrying about the future will cease. A deep peace will enfold you, a peace that says, “All is well. There is nothing to fear. Everything is unfolding according to plan and you are being guided each step of the way.
Sometimes you meet someone, and it’s so clear that the two of you, on some level belong together. As lovers, or as friends, or as family, or as something entirely different. You just work, whether you understand one another or you’re in love or you’re partners in crime. You meet these people throughout your life, out of nowhere, under the strangest circumstances, and they help you feel alive. I don’t know if that makes me believe in coincidence, or fate, or sheer blind luck, but it definitely makes me believe in something.
Here’s the good news: God is a nag, if we are destined to carry out some divine idea, we won’t be able to shrug it off. For me, God doesn’t just whisper within. If I am supposed to get a message, I start to see it and hear it everywhere -books, sermons, TV, conversations with friends.
When you wonder what is coming, tell yourself that the best is coming, the very best life and love have to offer, the best God and his universe have to send. Then open your hands to receive it. It is yours.
You were made for mighty things. And so it is time to start. Not time to argue. Not time to groan or doubt or fear. Not time to make excuses. Not time to shrink away. You say you’ve got tomorrow but don’t you know how fierce and feisty a thing that Time can be?
As long as you are standing here, two feet on the ground, you’ve got the graces of a New Beginning in your palms. You can close the doors. You can clean out the closets. You can say goodbye. You can let it go.
