Oh yes. We most definitely end up teaching what we most need to learn.
My journey of the last five years or so has been one of releasing my dependence on my mind and living more from my heart. Who knew it would be so hard or take so long?
I had a lovely, in fact, ecstatic “aha” moment last week while walking along one of the lovely coastal bush tracks at the edge of town. I was feeling flat and disappointed. I had woken up that morning still feeling quite lethargic and knew I didn’t have the energy to go to yoga. So I went for a little walk and had a sit on a rock in the bush and tried to meditate. This was nice but not as rejuvenating as I had hoped.
As I wandered back along the track to go home I was thinking about all sorts of things related to my work, my book, our current money situation and what sort of house we might end up buying. As I walked, I was also looking into the bushes beside the track to see if I could find a little Southern Brown Bandicoot (Quenda).
In our first two weeks of living in Dunsborough I had spotted two of these little critters while walking along this track and I was reflecting how it was odd that I hadn’t seen any since. Then it hit me. The times I had seen the Quendas, it had been a complete surprise, I had simply been walking along enjoying the scenery. In that moment I felt my whole body relax as I surrendered to the beauty all around me, exactly as it was. A split second later a Quenda shot across the track right in front of me. I laughed and felt a surge of elation as I looked to the heavens and thanked the universe for this clear demonstration.
I continued my walk feeling so much more connected to the benevolent universe and in a state of complete trust and open-heartedness with regard to all the aspects of my life I had been pondering.
Once we know what we want in life and we are living it by doing things we love each day, we simply need to get out of the way and trust that what we need to make our dreams come true will flow to us in Divinely right time in a Divinely right way.
When we look too hard or set our expectations too narrowly, we are blocking the flow of universal love.
Haahhh. It’s nice to have those little moments of clarity now and again.
Enjoy your week.
Love and lightness
