We all have big ideas.
Fantasies about who we’ll marry, what we’ll achieve, how others will treat us, etc.
But sometimes those ideas don’t seem to match up with what we actually manifest.
What do you do when the person you like doesn’t like you back or the life you love doesn’t seem to love you?
Here’s my two cents:
Step back from the situation, breathe deeply, dig deeper, and recognize that you are bigger than your big ideas.
Remember the story of the goose that laid the golden eggs?
Your ideas are golden eggs, but you’re the goose that lays them.
Your greatest fortune is the inexhaustible treasure-house within you.
Your thoughts and specific expectations, even the ones that are totally amazing, are just PARTIAL expressions of your Broader Self.
The power to create the life of your dreams does not lie in your mental blueprint or your vision board. It lies in the creative energy of spirit which always knows the BEST way to bring your heart’s desires into manifestation.
An elderly man once said to me: “If I asked you to write down your idea of the good life on a sheet of paper and in five years I showed you what you wrote, you would laugh.”
We would all be a little better off if we could learn to have a sense of humor about our specific expectations.
The movie that’s going on inside of your head may not play out in the exact way you expect, but the inner alignment that comes from knowing “all is well” can never fail you.
Don’t trust in your ever evolving vision of the future. Trust in your eternally expanding consciousness of well-being.
If that sounds discouraging or depressing, then please remember:
If you are truly bigger than your big ideas, then your future is probably bigger than anything you’re currently imagining.
At least that’s the way I see it.
