Think back. Did you know how you were going to meet your best friend? Did you know how or when you were going to get the job that you have right now? Did you know how or when you were going to meet that special person that changed your life?
Chances are you didn’t. Like playing a game of chess, or any game, you rarely know the full future consequences of any particular move right now.
Life usually delivers a story line similar to this -“Well, I did this, and it just so happened that he or she or it was there, and they knew of a … and that’s how THIS happened.”
A Match in a matchbox, has an Intent to create a flame. It doesn’t know where or what surface it will be struck upon to light it. It doesn’t understand about the Oxygen needed for it. It doesn’t know where or when the fingers will be that are needed for the striking of it. It can only offer its Intent. When conditions are right, a flame will be created.
It can’t control the CONDITIONS (those other “needed elements”) any more than you or I.
I can only control my Intent. When the time is right, my Oxygen, a surface to strike upon, and fingers for striking will show up. I can not predict or force any of those. Just as we didn’t know how we would end up meeting (or losing) our pet or mates, or getting (or losing) that last job. When the time is right, conditions manifest. Be happy in knowing that’s all we CAN control.
Timing – AH, the nasty little bugger in the issue. Whose timing? I WANT IT NOW!
If the Universe were to TRY to keep up with what YOUR perspective thought was “RIGHT” timing, it would throw complete chaos into a perfect system. We think we REALLY want something, but give us 20 minutes, or a day, or a month, and we’ve already changed our perspective, moved on to something else, or adjusted how or when we want it.
The Universe only does what we should do – focus only on IT’S Intent. IT’s been here a lot longer than any of us. It holds galaxies together, it brings the sun up every day, it probably knows when conditions are best for ALL parties involved.
The fingers, the striking surface, the needed Oxygen will harmonize with your Intent to light your flame, when ALL conditions are right. There are many fingers and striking surfaces that you are not even aware of, that will come into play.
Just as they always have in the past.
