How much power and control do we have to create our reality? What about karma? Life lessons?
And what the “haves” say to the “have not’s”
Lo! I do struggle with that one just a bit more than some—from what I’ve observed it’s the “have not’s” who are more concerned with this question. The “have’s” just go about having and don’t think about it much I suppose—well, maybe they do and that’s why they “have” in the first place. OR having or not having is not their karma in this lifetime—maybe it’s something else their soul struggles with. Hey, we’ve all got our own personal bug-a-boo I suppose. I’ve worked with many clients who have plenty of money—an excess in fact—and you should see what their worries are! To us “have-not’s” those things can appear pretty laughable and to us their so-called problem seems easily manageable, but I have to be careful not to minimize their dilemma any more than I like the “have’s” to minimize my “have not” issues.
I do notice though that those “have’s” who want to give me some type of “have not” advice almost always come from a place of having daddy’s inheritance, a hard-hard working and high-income producing life partner, or live on huge retirement benefits–those types of things… I’m just sayen’. I try to be patient. They mean well but usually don’t understand or even if they did once, they’ve forgotten.
It’s simple—make a plan, create your reality, affirm your will—right? Yes. And; No. There’s the laws of karma and causality and energy that must play out no matter what you affirm or how much will you demonstrate. Yeah, I hear ya’. If that’s what you believe, you say, then that’s what you will experience. I know all that but I’m talking about what some would call “Divine Timing” or what in Tarot Card language we’d call the “Wheel of Fortune” card or perhaps we could use the word “destiny”. Astrology is my new ‘thang’ more-or-less lately (besides swimming) and more than anything else it explains things like… well, that classic book entitled, “Why do bad things happen to good people?” Essentially, one can see the karmic patterns and the timing of the events and what the soul is learning which ‘splains quite a bit and helps one work with the soul’s plan rather than making one of one’s own and working against it.
Do we make a plan or go with the flow
Someone says, “Well, make a plan”, and I laugh because …. Well, what’s that line, “… best laid plans of mice and men”… tell the Universe your plans and make the gods laugh.
I have faith and trust that The Divine Assistants know our mind and heart ‘help us to help ourselves’. And believing that we do have that assistance working on our behalf, I am assured.
Yet I’ve also realized that we are here working through the energies that have already been set into motion so that the best plan we can make (if we make one) is to find the way to be at peace with “what is”–and that’s not easy task some days! Our heart’s desire is the plan and if we trust that while having faith that the path will be cleared and the way will be shown and known to us in exactly the right timing, this is the best we can do until the energy shifts to align with those intentions and the soul plan.
Like the old saying goes–make your intention and express your will and then let go, and let god.
That last step, surrender, is what us “have not’s” get pretty good at over time—something the “have’s” may no nothing about.
Or maybe they do.
Meanwhile, as a “have not”, I usually flow with whatever happens while holding the general outcome desired in the mind and heart, following guidance daily as it comes–for me its the best way to fly. If you ask if I am making a plan, that’s my answer–it’s worked thus far.
