THE ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE
Come, sit with me, close your eyes, hold my hand, let's go far away from this place to the place in which you came from.
"Those Doors are Locked for a Reason"
I am learning that what's for me will be, and the Universe will move boulders if necessary for it to be. Have you ever tried to force something that wasn't working out for you? The more you tried to make a way for it to happen, doors continued to be closed in your face. Every solution you tried to use for it was a no go and it became frustrating, why? You thought to yourself, "I'm trying,' right? You even wanted to come to tears because you knew that you wanted a significant change and you were doing the absolute best that you could. You tried every avenue, you even created some possible solutions, asked for help, but no one was in a position to help you, and nothing worked.
Doors seemed to be locked.
Some of those doors seem to be boarded up.
I know you tried hard for it, you did the work, you kept the faith, and you believed that it was for you.
If this hasn't been me trying to force it to fix it. Don't be me, don't try to force it to fix it. Once you start saying that you're trying, you're playing it pretty close to being the "victim." Once you start saying "I'm trying," there is some doubt in you of it happening. Whenever I am fixing my mouth to say that I am trying, then I know that I am meeting with resistance, maybe even some self-pity. If it doesn't flow in the direction of synchronicity, I can assure you that it's not the path for you.
I tell God that I am grateful that I am being kept on my Divine path. I tell God that I am thankful for guidance, and that I will follow my purpose of what I am called here to do. I tell God that I am grateful for the road blocks because they let me know what's for me and what's not for me. I thank God for all situations, even the ones that I get frustrated about, because they are there for a reason, for a lesson. I need to be obedient to the Divine signs. They are in place to protect me. In times where I ignored the Divine signs, I learned some tough Divine lessons.
We can get ugly angry inside when things aren't turning out like we wanted them to. It's the inner child in us that sticks out when we don't get our way and starts throwing a tantrum. We begin to question everything and ask why me? Why can't I? We become resistant to whatever we're trying to reach because of our attitude towards it. Our attitude can repel whatever we want away from us when we feel like it's hard to come to us.
I have experienced many bolted doors that I tried beating in. I thought that I was facing my adversities and going around them if I had to. I felt that I would be giving up if I didn't try various options. I was doing these things for other reasons, sometimes not my reasons, sometimes for material reasons. No matter how hard it seems we have to follow what's in our dreams. I have made career choices that wasn't in line with my true purpose. Just because I am good at it, doesn't mean that it's what God wants me to do. I had to come to inner stand that I asked God to place me in direct path to my purpose, so anything that doesn't align with that is going to show me some resistance. It's going to turn me around. The resistance is the guide to let us know what's not for us. The resistance is the God compass telling us which way to go.
Anyone who loves you, you don't have to force them or create ways for them to love you. They just did and it came naturally for them. All we have to do is just be. That's it. We don't have to push, shove, and fight for what's ours, it will flow to us naturally. The right people will show up to make your purpose more successful. The opportunities will chase you down when you do what God told you to do. Everything comes to you when you release all blame, resentment, and concern of how other people see you. They will see you how you see you. What is for you, will always be for you.
As long as we're going against the grain, we will bring ourselves pain.
The hardest thing to do is nothing. To stand still and let the Universe take course is a skill. We are so used to fixing things, intervening, and trying to control things that we lose sight of our true purpose. What's even harder is not doing something when we feel like we should be doing something. It its our ego that tells us we aren't doing enough, that more is required of us. You are doing the best that you can do a this present moment. But there is a voice that will tell you that you need to do more. There is a voice that will have you criticizing what you do and have done, this is not your true voice, this is ego. Your Divine voice will say, "you have done enough, you are enough, you did good enough," it will always be enough. It wants you to be gentle with you.
You have tried to do something before and was met with resistance. It seemed like the more you did, the harder it became to do. It seemed like the obstacles just piled on top of each other or came at the time when you were attempting to make your moves. This is not the same thing as having resilience in overcoming adversities for your goals and your purpose. We must persevere in what we want to achieve. We won't get to our purpose if we give up because of obstacles, we will always be faced with them. The close doors that I am speaking of are the ones where you can feel the BIG NO in your gut on the most subtle level. It's when you think that you're doing what's right, and it all sounds good, but it's not lining up for you. There seems to be obstacles beyond your control. It seems like something is pushing you, and you are pushing back. You are pushing the Universe back. This means that it can't work for you, because you're working against it, and then telling yourself that life isn't being fair to you.
I have been faced with situations that I could do nothing about but ride them out. When I surrendered and became still, everything lined up with my purpose started to come to me. I didn't have to go to it. I sat still and acknowledged that God was in control. I released my need to control. I said, "okay, I will face what I have to because I know that God is leading me." We get so many things done that we forget that God is in control. We forget that we came here to live out our purpose and do Divine works. God holds us accountable, so everything that we think we want doesn't want us, but it wants to protect us.
The Universe wants us to win, and to know that we won.
We gotta stop beating down doors that's not be answered.
God will give you the keys to the right door, your door, and you will walk right in.
