Stepping Stones

Our lives are made of stepping stones, one experience after another in perfect and divine order.

With only two days now till TT starts, I thought this message from Neale Donald Walsch that I received was quite fitting. (I will write his words in italics)

Imagine the future stretching out before you and try to notice if you feel any tension or overwhelm at the propsect of the journey still to come. Maybe you have started a new job or made a lifestyle change and there is an undercurrent of anxiety about your ability to suceed.

Ah, yeah! Just a little tension and sense of overwhelm

If you can shift your focus from what may happen years down the line and return it to the day that is before you right now, you may find a measure of calm and renewed confidence in your capabilities. You may also discover an inner faith that the future will take care of itself.

I was going to write about my thoughts on having faith when the lines, "Faith, gotta have Faith" just popped into my head. Oh my lord........ talk about a monkey mind :-)

The way we show up for our lives today and tomorrow has an enormous affect on who we will be and what we will be experiencing years from now. If we can remain full engaged in the day at hand, enjoying all it has to offer and putting our energy into making the most of it, we will find that we are perfectly ready and capable to handle any future when it arrives.

Now I've often taken giant leaps of faith and trusted that the universe will look after me and it always has. Not always the way I thought or wanted it do but things have always worked out and that does leave me with a sense of calm - and a George Michael song running round in my head. :-)
