I recall as a child my parents saying the phrase:
EVERYTHING IN GOOD TIME.
It never meant much to an impatient, gotta-have-it-all-right-now teenager. But now, years ... uh, let's make that decades later, it means a great deal.
It's funny; just this morning, while walking back from Lotus (a truly superb health-food, vegan restaurant & juice-bar in Encinitas), Tammy and I were talking about this very thing before reading the Abraham post that follows.
We were discussing how one of the comforting things about growing older is the fact we're not in as much of a hurry to do, or accomplish, or win over something. That if we'll just let it happen, it so often ends up so much better. And nearly every single time.
Some things you're not letting happen right now because the timing isn't perfect for you. Some you're not letting happen because you are very aware of where you are. But all things, as they are happening, are happening in perfect order. And if you will relax and begin saying, "Everything in its perfect time. Everything is unfolding. And I'm enjoying where I am now, in relationship to where I'm going. Content where I am, and eager for more," that is the perfect vibrational stance. -Abraham
Isn't it interesting, the thought process wasn't: If you'll really push hard ... If you'll take control and force the issue ... If you'll take the bull by the horns ... If you'll keep riding it ...
No, it said: If you will relax and begin saying, Everything in perfect time. And if you'll ENJOY where you are now. And, if you'll be CONTENT where you are, THEN you'll find what you're searching for.
Simple? Yes. Simplistic? Not really. Understandable? I think so. Doable? Positively yes!
I'd like to add just four gentle suggestions to help the process:
- Take A Deep Breath before beginning (center yourself),
- Get Out Of Your Own Way (remove ego from the equation),
- Let Go (of trying to make anything happen), and
- Allow It To Happen (that's Allow) ... In Good Time.
This works for me. And you know what? Is there ever (really) anything you can do to "make things happen?" Not exactly; sure, you can get a result, and you can often get your way, but at the end of the situation, is it the best that it could have been?
That's my two cents for a Monday. Why not give it a try? And let me know how things turned out for you; I'll share the same.
Until then, remember ...
