Planting The Seeds Of Love


Change doesn’t happen overnight; instead, it’s in the culmination of all those little "aha" moments.

And so that's why I'm telling you this. I don't expect you're going to change everything overnight. It would be nice, but it just doesn't happen that way. And the truth is that's not how we really grow. It's about baby steps. An increase in awareness. A process. Sometimes three steps forward, two steps back. Some good days, some harder days, but no bad days; all of them lead to progress. Some days we feel like we're finally there, ready to step out and embrace our birthright, and other days we just want to bury ourselves under the covers and cry. The point is, it's our own journey; it's all about what happens every day to our consciousness that causes us to move forward on our life path at a pace that only we know. And no one can do that for us. We can have people and experiences and, yes, even articles like this one that can plant ideas and inspirations and "aha!" moments along the way. But I can say from experience, looking back over my own personal journey, reflecting on my journey from there (miserable, lonely) to here, (contented, happy), I realize that it all comes together when we're ready. It comes together with the timing that's right for each of us, and the timing that's right for you is going to be different than what's right for your best friend, your sister, or your yoga instructor. The Truth about Love and Divine Timing

My journey was different from yours and yours will be different from mine, but why I'm writing this to you is because it's these little moments that plant the seeds in our consciousness. And those same little moments are what cause monumental changes in awareness within us that ultimately cause the changes that we need to bring love and happiness into our lives. Like when Mr. Right finally shows up at your door. It didn't just happen. It started with an openness on your part, progressed to a gradual change of consciousness on the inside of you, and eventually manifested itself in a physical occurrence of the person you've been waiting your whole life for. Walking through the door and finding you ready for him at the exact time that he's at that same point and ready for you. It's beautiful, and believe me, it happens and it will happen for you. How To Meet Mr. Right

Just keep planting those seeds!
