Our lives are guided by natural rhythms that are unique to us and cannot by changed by the force of will alone. Life itself is a path of processes and events that unfold before us as time passes. Whether we envision ourselves in a particular career, creating a family or living in another country, we realize our dreams when the time has come, and all things fall into place. When the time is right, nothing can block our destiny!
As anxious and impatient as we might be to reach these beautiful futures, we cannot grow if we are not truly present in our evolving life experience. Yes, it can be challenging, uncomfortable, exhausting and sometimes downright scary, but have faith that as life unfolds, the universe will patiently wait as we make our way into the unknown.
Our fates were predetermined and not dependent on the pace that we move. Like many of us, we sometimes wish we could fast forward thorough certain parts of our life. However, by its very nature, haste is far more stressful than the calmness of perserverance.
There is no need to rush through life to reach those steps of development that we associate with our chosen paths. Embrace and fully experience the journey of your life and know that it is just as important as acheiving the goals or milestones we set for ourselves. The next time you feel frustrated by the pace of your progress (which seems deceptively slow), remember that everthing will happen in its own time...the right time. There are valuable lessons to be learnt during those moments that we cannot learn at any other time of our lives. Try to simply enjoy the joy of being, rather than the end result or expectation.
By resisting the urge to rush, you will be able to witness yourself learning, changing and inevitably becoming stronger. There is so much to see so and do while we are in transition. By being patient enough to enjoy the experience the unfolding of your existence, the journey from one point to another will seem to take no time at all.
