Fighting that Ocean Wave?! How's That Working for Me?
Our thoughts and actions are at times like a needle stuck on a record. Remember records ;)haha. It would replay a word or sentence, replay, replay and never change until it is adjusted, then it moves forward with a beautiful melody. ADJUSTMENT being the key. I'm sure if the needle could speak it would be like, "Hey!! What are you doing?! Stop touching me! I'm on a mission don't distract me!!" Reality check... we are a broken record sometimes. Banging our heads on walls continuously in an effort to make things happen the way and ONLY way we believe will work. Realize truth, submitting our wills or control is adjusting to progress. My record has been sitting on a scratch. Today I am realizing this, and ready to make the "adjustment". I feel like I have been given so much, and have a mission to share and lift others. "How" is where I've been stuck. The vision in my mind is a little different than what is coming to pass. Submission and allowing God to do His work in me, however he chooses, is my KEY adjustment. I cannot force my future. Doing all I can toward what I feel to be best is my part. God is preparing the rest. Whatever situation you may be in I hope you will try this faith thing with me. Letting go of the control, and "know-it-all" attitude. EGO.... hard to let go of.
So how do we do it? Well it's important to understand "life IS motion". The ocean is symbolic of our journey in life. The ocean ebbs and flows, recedes then oversteps normal boundaries. Surrendering to me is best explained with this visual. Set our intention of what we want to create for others as well as our own greatest good. Then after we are fixed on intention then we allow the motion. The focus as to HOW this will completely be accomplished is not fully up to us. Recognizing this will create a sense of peace. It's like getting beyond the boisterous waves, and arms wide as you float where the current takes you. We are liquid to the whims of the "how", and that's Ok. I am realizing being liquid isn't a bad thing. Liquid is pliable and moves where a master puts it to motion. Our part is to be aware, and alert to notice the opportunities, how to's, being vigilant to other's who may be stuck in a whirlpool and need our help. Watching for the whale's back that will carry us. He IS MY "HOW".
