Our perceived limitations are nearly always illusions. They are beliefs that we have somehow accepted about ourselves. Illusions are projected onto us through our thinking, the critical and limited thinking of others, and what the world says about education, talent, success, creativity and everything else. We give them power by believing they are true about us.
If you have a deep desire to do or create something—it is Divinely implanted in you. You came to this earth at this time to give birth to that desire. Remember, if it is genuinely good for you, it will be good for others. Any desire that diminishes anyone is not of your Highest Mind. It is ego-based.
I can’t count the times or the situations in my life where I have asked silently and out loud, “When is this going to turn around? What am I doing wrong?” Sound familiar? It is our human nature to want things, and to want them now. However, much to our chagrin at times, partnering with the Higher Power/Universe of our understanding, by whatever name we call the Divine, is a process of becoming all we are meant to be and do.
It is an evolution—not a horse race.
If we consider the fact that the Universe itself is multi-billions of years old, then our average lifetimes for this go-round are just nanoseconds on the Universe’s clock. What seems like a snail’s pace to us is perfectly ordered and orchestrated for maximum results. With that said, our biggest challenge to the process of becoming is to learn to embody faith and trust. Not just say we have or practice them—but embody them.
