For months I’ve been seeking the answer to an important personal question. But the answer eludes me. Even worst, the harder I try, the farther I feel from any clarity.
Being entirely honest, it’s not the first time. Many times in the past, I found myself lost in a quest for an answer or a solution. And too often, I got so entrenched in the problem that I couldn’t see any way out.
Ironically, most the time it is when I give up trying that the answer emerges.
With this awareness, at the turn of year, a voice in my head began saying “then why are still looking? Just stop trying and wait for the answer.“
But, I’ve been there before, and there’s a caveat.
A thin line that we must pay attention to.
The thin line separating the passive waiting for something from the active creation of space for something to emerge.
The universe is actively invested in our journey, so it tries to help, giving us signs and hints. But it does so using its own language.
So we must engage in learning the language of the universe. We must open up, expand our senses, actively listen and observe. And then act on the signs we read.
If we cross that thin line and we passively wait for the universe to speak our language, we may dry out in the wait.
