Do you genuinely want to make a difference?
So often we think that we need to have more, do more, be more, be in a different position BEFORE...... Before... we can really change our life, Before we can share our offerings with others, Before we can really become of service, and that until we get THERE... we better just keep doing what we've always done.
We've been conditioned to believe that there isn't enough... If I just had MORE money, more time, more freedom, more knowledge, THEN..! Then, I can volunteer my time to that cause I'm passionate about, then I will be able to donate some money, then I can write that book, then I can share with others....
But of course, THEN never comes.... or WHEN it does actually arrive, the THEN has already expanded into another future proposition of WHEN! When I just feel a bit more secure... When I get through this crazy period I will ... When I'm feeling better... When I finish that course I'll start... And, if WHEN does somehow miraculously show up in our conscious awareness, we're probably already in pursuit of another end point BEFORE we can really begin! And now we're back to the beginning, where we always were, and nothing is different!
Did you keep up with me there?
We continue to strive for a place outside of ourselves and this moment where things will be different and from there and only from that place can we act. But, where is BEFORE, THERE, MORE, THEN and WHEN? They're all out of this present moment is WHERE!!
We fool ourselves with the illusion of where there is more, we will be more, and when we have more, we can do more. However 'more' or 'abundance' never comes from a place of lack. And whilst we continue to project ourselves off into some other place and time where there will be more, we only perpetuate the energy of now not being enough. Those who understand the Law of Attraction know that we will never manifest more from a lack consciousness and there are many who are considered richly abundant who still do not connect with a sense of purpose or feeling enough.
What if we already have enough?
What if we already are enough?
What if we already have exactly what we need to do what we are here to do?
Lynne Twist who authored The Soul of Money writes about a very important concept of sufficiency. Now sufficient might not sound as positively enticing and glamorous as the words 'abundant' and 'prosperous', but sufficiency enables us to understand enough. The Principle of Sufficiency advocates "If you let go of trying to get more of what you don't really need, it frees up oceans of energy to make a difference with what you have. When you make a difference with what you have, it expands."
It is through our understanding of 'enough' and 'sufficient' that we step out of the striving cycle. It is in the non-striving and gratitude for what we have now and who we already are, that truly becomes the place we grow and expand from. We come to understand that you can do more with what you have and who you are in this moment, than in any other envisioned far off place that you'll probably not recognise once you're there.
And whilst having vision and goals is both inspiring and healthy, all we truly have is NOW.
So, I offer you an invitation. An invitation to ask yourself these questions and take guidance and action from what you know to be true.
Question 1: How can I make a difference with what I already have?
Question 2: How can I make a difference as the person I already am?
Question 3: How can I make a difference with where I currently am in my life?
You may be surprised at the answers that flow through you, or maybe you already knew. Perhaps you notice immediate resistance as those old patterns of 'but I cant until...' rise and bubble up within you. Let them rise... and let them fall, as you examine are they really true?
If you feel a little unsure, don't be concerned. Even, if you do not get immediate answers continue to ask yourself these questions. If there is one thing I have learned in life, it is the importance of asking the right questions. The Universe and your intuitive intelligence will deliver the answers to you and they may show up differently than you expect.
It may be through an offer to participate in something you hadn't previously considered. It could be receiving a kind reassuring word from another that helps you to see what your offering already is.
Allow yourself to ponder these questions and begin to take action in areas that normally you wouldn't.
Just imagine a world where we are all doing what we came here to do. Where we are making a difference in our own unique special way, that only we can do by being the person we already are.
We change the world when we make a difference in the areas that call to us. Those areas that light us up and call our spirit home. Whether its in an area of conservation, health and healing, rights for all sentient beings, through a creative pursuit, nurturing children or just how we choose to treat ourselves and others.
When we make a difference we feel it in our hearts. We flourish in this space that we've already created, and it is in this space, that there is indeed enough for all.
