When you are striving towards something in life, it can feel that the road is infinitely long sometimes. Frustration is something many people experience, that, and feeling stuck. I know I have and still do.
One day, while considering this, I was reminded that everything is in perfect timing, including emotions such as frustration and resistance. We want to be rid of the resistance and we feel that the resistance is holding us back from manifesting our hearts’ desire. But perhaps there is a far easier way to look at this.
Frustration is a parachute but this is not a bad thing to have.
Imagine your riding a motorbike and that motorbike is your life, your unique experience of living. The road is the bigger picture, the entirety of creation spread before you in all directions. You’re zooming along, and up ahead is the man or woman you are to fall in love with, or the opportunity for a new business, or any other desire you have. If you are hurtling along at warp speed, you’re going to leave the opportunities by the roadside. But fortunately, you have this magical parachute that pops out at just the exact time to slow your journey down and you meet that person or you see that opportunity.
And that parachute is often wrongly labelled as frustration, resistance and being stuck. Yet none of us can see the full picture of our own existence; none of us can see that frustration is our own personal parachute.
Now, many writers of the Law of Attraction, creating your reality ways of thinking, may encourage you to release that resistance and then you will get what you want. But perhaps the direction you want to go in is not as amazing as the bigger picture ahead of you. And your lover, your business, your good health, that dream will arrive when it arrives, and not a moment before.
Perhaps true surrender is surrendering to the resistance and frustration saying:
“Welcome resistance, it’s okay.”
“Welcome frustration, it’s okay.”
“Welcome stuckness, it’s okay.”
All that ‘is’ is okay.
Now I know what some of you may be thinking because I often have similar thoughts.
“I have been doing this for sooooo long now and nothing has changed – nothing! I don’t know if I can keep going; this road seems awfully long and there’s no fulfillment of my desires in sight!”
But has truly nothing changed?
Has your perception of you changed or of your world changed?
Are you seeing the world differently. No matter how large or small these changes are, they are still changes.
That famous quote says:
“Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
(Gandhi – tweaked a little)
I feel this famous quote goes a lot deeper than on the surface.
Your World Changes – Inside You!
Your world changes inside of you. You have millions of memories playing, programmes affecting your outer reality. It does take time to shift those memories, to change the inside. And not until we are truly ready. When you are ready, life changes on the outside as the inside changes. But we need to open ourselves to answering some deeper questions inside. And realise that not everyone is ready to change. Our responsibility is just to take care of our own inner world.
Ask yourself the following questions:
- What do I get from feeling this way?
- What benefits do I get from staying where I am?
- Am I ready for this change I desire, or do I get something else from staying here?
