Nothing grows at the speed our anxiety would wish it to.
That’s the infuriating part about change. We can’t alter its rate. That would be like trying to speed up or slow down the current of a stream. No matter how good our intentions, no matter how sturdy our rocks, there’s nothing we can do to hurry the process.
Even if we build a dam, we still can’t make the river flow in the other direction.
Masters addressed this tendency in his astuteabout spiritual bypassing. The greater our hurry to arrive, he says, the longer it will take. But when we’re on track, it doesn’t really matter how long it takes to reach our destination, because we know in our heart that we are going in the right direction, however much the path might meander.
Thus, the flow of change requires surrender. Jumping into the stream of life and letting the current carry us where it will. The flow of change requires trust. In ourselves and in the process. And the flow of change requires presence. Learning to enjoy the journey without caring when the path will end.
Hurry has no blessing.
Get mentally ready for that eventuality, and you’ll be fine.
LET ME ASK YA THIS…
Why is it worth what you are changing?
