“In this invisible law of unfoldment, we must come to trust, and although we do not see the way, we must believe that the way IS and IS COOPERATIVE.” Ernest Holmes
Martin Luther King Jr. said something similar when he challenged us to take the first step even when we could not see the whole staircase. The Universe does not respond to us unless we move first. It’s true, we do not always see the way, but the way IS and it IS COOPERATIVE. Whenever Dr. Holmes uses CAPS, I know he is screaming at us to make sure we get the point.
Let’s say you are wanting to move forward with a project. The world of form seems to be saying no to the way you think it should go. However, you get a feeling that you should go ahead anyway. What would stop you from going forward even though your intuition is screaming yes? I think it all boils down to fear of failure or that you will get lost somewhere in the process, or that you will not know what to do.
I know, from experience, that there is a formula to manifesting your creations. You have to make a decision. You have to know what it is you want to experience. You have to get excited about it. You have to be definite. YOU HAVE TO SPRING FORWARD INTO ACTION. If you do not spring forward into action, you will remain in a dream state and nothing will happen. You’ll be stuck.
There are many reasons you might think you can fail, but what is failure but not trying at all. Failure is staying stuck in an unhappy place. Failure is not taking a different turn, or feeling a pause, or even not succeeding at all. Actually, there is no such thing as failure to the person who has a definite plan and moves forward with it in spite of the odds. He or She might not land where they thought they would, but a whole new way of being will open up to them.
So, to wrap this up. just because we cannot see the path or cannot see what is happening, does not mean that something isn’t happening. Something is always happening. The Universe, the invisible Field of Energy stands on tiptoe awaiting our passionate command. Let’s SPRING FORWARD!
Love and Aloha,
