The theme today is: open even one small portal of your mind and you will experience cosmic sunshine. I had a great “ordinary guru” story to share with you, but I’ll share it next week. Norman’s inquiry struck me, and so I chose to address it in this blog.
I have been languishing for years, always afraid to try anything new for fear that I will fail and everyone will laugh at me. I am now 42 and have an opportunity to move to a big city and work for my uncle who is very successful in the importing business. I am very excited about this chance I am being given but also I am very much afraid. What if I fail and he regrets giving me this chance. What can you tell me that could help me? If you have more important requests, I understand.
Most sincerely, Norman K.
Rain falls scarcely in the desert. And yet when rain falls in the desert it falls plentifully, changing the environment immediately. And millions of dormant seeds that were waiting for this opportunity, spring forth with ample abundance to create a beautiful canvas of colors on the backdrop of the desert. These seeds have always contained their talent to spring forth and blossom in their own unique fashion, and only had to wait until the environment was right.
No matter how long you have lied dormant, Norman, your talents await the right environment to spring forth and blossom beautifully into the world for everyone to see. Creative expression is your essence; it is your reason for being here (just like the rest of us). Replenishing rain has fallen, a wonderful opportunity has been offered. It is your time to unfold and blossom. Do not let yourself down. Have the courage to listen to your inspirations and act on them.
Your request for guidance is important to me, Norman.
You are important to me, Norman.
Are you not a rich and majestic child of Infinite Intelligence?
As are all of us.
True confidence comes
To those who lose confidence
In their old way of doing things.
It’s your turn, Norman. TAKE IT!
Blessings, my friend … Rob
There is a level of teaching that is much more potent than words. It is heard only by those who turn to their hearts to listen. Norman’s problem is not unique to Norman. You too must see that the price you pay when you lie dormant – when replenishing rains come – is costing your dearly. The loss you feel is the loss of your life, but wonderfully, you can find your life if you take the above advice.
Blessings & love to all of you, Rob
