Throughout life, our destiny keeps knocking at the door. But, it just seems like most of us are so preoccupied with life and living that we ignore the signs and messages… the knock at the door.
I believe we all came to our life with a destiny, but not a predetermined path or life. All of the conditions, people, places and decisions are set up by us and for us to live our destiny. Our life is what we make it to be. There is every chance that at any moment we can call in our destiny and live it. We can ask for help of this highest kind and are sure to get just the help needed. Help always arrives if we are listening and watching. If we are open the universe will respond in the most creative ways.
Oh, to be sure, help is not likely to be what we specifically thought we needed. While the warning “be careful what you ask for” is exactly right, even more important is to be careful what we ignore after we ask. Destiny collaborates to give us the fullest life we deserve. If we don’t get the messages, they will just get stronger and more intense until we do get it. In my experience the signs and messages for our destiny are mysterious, wonderful, and take a lot of work.
Our lives are capable of becoming more than we could imagine. When I am listening to life stories and all of the times that destiny comes knocking, I am continually dumbfounded at how hanging on to the past stops us from living our future. Fear of change — which is all driven by our ego — blocks us from living a life of miracles, wonder and love. That is what destiny has in store for all of us.
The next time destiny knocks at the door, open and walk through. The rewards for living our destiny are for eternity. Be who you were born to be!
The goal is to post a “happy” quote, statistic, article, news item, or event on Fridays. I love the idea as it creates joyful ripples in our thoughts, hearts and actions. I invite you to share with me anything that you stumble upon as it might be featured in our “happy” Friday posts.
This week I discovered that there is more positive news out in the world than I thought. It made me happy. One excellent resource is Unified Caring Association’s Positive News Network. Another inspirational site is the Huffington Post’s Happiness section. It’s full of information about happiness and even lists the top 10 happiest places on the internet. Now who doesn’t need that?
If you’re looking for a step-by-step program that will allow you the opportunity to reflect and deepen your understanding of happiness then check out the Living Good Program and the Happiness Program. In a few short hours, your perspective and understanding will shift.
Change! Ahh… here’s a word that either makes you spread your arms in spirited welcome, stamp your foot in stubborn defiance, or cower in denial as it runs its inevitable course. Change is a catalyst designed to propel us to higher consciousness as we go through life’s journey; yet it can be grossly unappreciated, and sometimes highly feared. Its unexpected arrival can be soul-shaking to the core.
Change can be magical as in those moments when you meet someone who transforms your life forever. It’s during those times when you lose your footing and your life script is nowhere to be found, that destiny takes over and your wings start to grow. This can be exhilarating or terrifying. The good news is – we can always choose how to confront change.
There was a time when I would cringe whenever I pulled a divination card telling me I was about to undergo CHANGE. I could sense my feelings squirm as I bemoaned my unknown, impending challenges. Change meant facing my fears, doing something that my ego screamed against or – the worst – exposing my inadequacies.
As long as I believed this scenario, that is exactly what I called forth to myself. Thankfully, I can look back now and marvel at my timidity. Not to say that I didn’t experience palm-sweating moments of excruciating denial and angst – I did! But I have come to realize two things: (1) that with my particular nature, sometimes my assigned guardian angels, or ‘thought adjusters’ really need to ‘knock me upside the head’ to get me back on path; and (2) I can always choose how to confront change — openly with enthusiasm, realizing it is for my betterment no matter how it looks (or feels), or defiantly blocked wherein I might lose the opportunity to grow and have to repeat it in some other, possibly more dramatic form, down the road.
I have come to know change quite intimately in my life. As a seeker of true purpose and service, I am still in journey. I would like to report that change and I have become friends. Let’s just say that – at this point – change and I have a mutual understanding that the more I embrace it, the less I need it. Works for me, and I suspect it is one of the keys to happiness and freedom, as well as true self-empowerment for us all.
