I know a couple, they are long-time friends of mine and they are ahead of me on their journey. They had their awakening many moons ago. One of them told me that when they got on their path they wanted everyone to follow. They tried to get everyone to awaken so others could see what they saw. My friends admitted to me that it doesn’t work that way. People awaken when they decide it’s okay to suffer, be in solitude, and be open to solutions.
Most people ask for the answer but are not open to the solution or the messenger bringing the solution. As I blogged on Sunday, Respect the Gift if you pray for an answer and the answer comes in a form you don’t receive it, then you are not honoring what has been sent to you. We have to remember that sometimes answers don’t look like we think they should look, they don’t come from people that look like us, talk like us or believe like us. We must be open to receiving from all.
Sometimes we don’t get our answers or a-ha moments because we want something magical to be done. We want the quick fix that doesn’t require us to work. We have to work if we want to change. If we want to save ourselves we have to take heed and build the ark. What if Noah just wanted God to put an ark before him. The magic only happens when we are open to working and working to change.
Solutions are found in silence and solitude. Be open to all that come. Remember connections are not coincidental. The magic will happen when we work to change and honor our answered prayers.
