Manifesting: Opportunity in Possibilities

To live a life where you live fully and passionately, honour who you are and where you are striving to place yourself, begins with developing the ability to live honestly. Living honestly is living with integrity and honour. It is so much about the inner landscape that resides within. The minor note is about the outer landscape, the façade or mask, which we present to the world and sometimes to ourselves.
The richness and the juice of living in this manner comes in seeing and benefiting from the rewards that will come your way. When we proceed on our journey in this manner, instead of seeing the im-possibility of situations, we begin to see an abundance of possibilities unfolding all around us. These possibilities provide an endless supply of fuel to help drive our determination, aspirations and inspirations helping us move forward.
When the talk turns to possibilities, some become really open at the prospect; others close down, sometimes unknowingly retracting their energy and lifeforce, and undeniably withdrawing from the opportunities that come their way. These are two extreme polarities and it is for us to come to a place within where we can hold both these polarities and let them blend together. We are not one or the other but a blend of both.
PROBLEMS WITH POSSIBILITIES
There are none.
Possibilities always are opportunities, problems only start when we limit possibilities. Some have closed themselves off from allowing this energy in and have somehow encircled themselves with the energy of despair. When life holds no possibilities there can be a disparaging cloud of energy that can suppress any hope for a different today or tomorrow.
If we are not allowing possibilities in at some level, how can we live something other than a very restricted life? This can show up in many ways or veins and just leave us feeling sluggish, maybe even worn down by life events, a lack of enthusiasm, joy and sometimes not feeling happy, but not quite sure why.
There comes a time when we need to extend a forgiveness to the inner spaces within our own souls. We sometimes hang onto very rigid, unforgiving, even harsh aspects of ourselves which have the expectation that somehow, at some level of consciousness, we are in a way superior to those around us and so we hold ourselves to a much harsher form of judgment, retribution almost self-punishment. Definitely an unforgiving outlook at any imperfections we may struggle with.
One thought on the forgiveness process, especially the aspect of self-forgiveness, is allowing ourselves to join with the rest of humanity and become human again. As with all humans we have within us much greatness, but also the frailties that come along with this very human nature of ours.
Although many strive for transcendence, we also need to endeavour to embrace this diverse human temperament of ours. When we become very myopic refusing to take in all these aspects, that's when we start to tread a rocky path and find that we may frequently stumble. There is nothing wrong with stumbling, it's when we get ourselves into a position of free falling; of not being able to withstand our own very human hearts that we run into trouble.
Even if you hate these aspects of yourself, until you learn to tame these inner demons, they will control many of the decisions you make and how you choose to move forward in your life... or not.
HOPES AND DESIRES
If you feel like you're going nowhere and your life has no purpose, there is no aspiration or desire online; no worries, you know you have reached a good place. As you look around this planet of ours, you discover there are many who are walking through life with blinders on. You have started to identify something very special and although you may feel like your life is unwinding, and you're spinning out of control, and that there is no light at the end of the tunnel: know that success is within your grasp.
You have reached an exciting vantage point because you have started to get movement and you recognize that something is amiss. You want change, perhaps even crave it. You are no longer wiling to languish in some kind of air pocket. You want to live and to be fully alive on this journey. What could be more exciting!
I say to you, aspire. Open yourself to receive. Allow yourself the freedom of becoming who you were meant to be and allow yourself to expand through all the bumps and wrinkles your journey may offer you and the opportunity to finally arrive at who you are.
For some this may happen to them in a flash. And congratulations to them. For others it may happen with a series of starts and stops, kind of a push pull effect. And for another group it may be a fight all the way: a series of struggles feeling like they're getting nowhere. Then miraculously or magically one day they take a good look around and see how far their consciousness has progressed.
Wherever you fall whether it is in one of these categories or somewhere in between know that it's not the final destination but actually the route along the way. And you're to be applauded for each and every success; each and every step forward, because as you change yourself, you're also making changes in the structure of the planet and the people around you. So remember to congratulate yourselves because you are one of the architects in the global re-design project.
