Years ago, I heard Dr. Wayne Dyer say,
“If it happened, it was supposed to happen that way.
"How do I know?
"Because that’s how it happened.”
That understanding has carried me through
so many, many ‘happenings’
That I could have obsessed on and made myself crazy.
Instead, go to trust and ask for strength and guidance.
Notice how we look back at things that we waited for
And think, it seemed a long wait then, but now it’s WAY over.
It seems to take so long!
Longer than we thought!
Yet, one day, we’ll be looking back at it,
Instead of forward to it.
So rejoice in today!
Rejoice in the wait!
It will be a glorious part of the past-
…that we yearn for more love, more connectedness?
Perhaps it’s to help us remember to love others, to connect more.
(And, it’ll come back to us many, many-fold!)
Do it today.
How ‘bout what Mike Dooley says?
“Do you know what happens in time and space just before something really incredible happens? Something mind-blowing? Just before a really HUGE dream comes true?
At least not in the physical world.
So if, perchance, it appears that absolutely nothing is happening in your life right now… consider it a sign.”
