Moving Forward


I have spent most of my life afraid to really move forward in terms of creating a happier and more meaningful life for myself. Now, that I finally feel ready to do just that, everything seems to be going wrong. Is this a sign that I am doing something wrong or that my timing is off?


Whenever one seeks to evolve to a higher level of being, resistance always kicks in, usually in the form of old familiar patterns or fears suddenly arising with great intensity. So, not only are you not doing anything wrong, the difficulties you are experiencing are actually a very clear sign that you are heading in the right direction.

Such patterns of resistance generally lay dormant - only making themselves known when the status quo is seriously challenged. Hence, there is never going to be an ideal time to pursue such changes in your life. Regardless of when you decide to move forward, those same patterns of resistance will surely present themselves again. In fact, they will probably be even more formidable and stubborn, because you have given them additional time to grow and strengthen.

Ultimately, all that is needed is the resolve to persist, persist and persist regardless of what obstacles (internally or externally) come your way. Therefore, why not take the bull by the horns and directly confront your fears, RIGHT NOW! For until you do, your dreams will never come to pass. And that would be a real shame, given that you have so much to offer as well as receive from the world!
