So possibility. . .As always when I was beginning to close my meditation, I started to pray., Typically,. when I pray, my prayer is one of thanksgiving. As I give thanks, I give thanks for all of the things that are and that er to be. In the process of giving thanks for those things that are to be, it was as if I was interrupted. I was reminded of a time when I was desperately praying for success in a certain area of my life that I was not currently realizing success in. Specifically, I was praying for success in the stock market. That was how I had envisioned creating a life of freedom for myself. I was certain that if I could create success in the market, I was going to be free. Well, that was not the path that followed. Instead, an opportunity arose for me to start a business of my own. So, I did. This was a far better path for me than the stock market.. Had I been successful in the Market., chances are that I would have had a substantial setback when the market receded. Instead, I was able to hone my business skills and thrive through the market ups and downs.. The gift there was that I learned that I definitely don't always know the best path and moreover, I must be open to other possibilities (perhaps the divine path) in order to truly succeed.
So there you have it Link and Possibility. I need to be who I am and not pander to who I think I should be AND I choose to open up and listen and know that there may be a better way than my way.
As I blindly feel my way through, I really hope I get some of it right!
Shantih Shantih Shantih
