The Unknown - Threat or Opportunity?
"The secret of making something work in your lives is first of all, the deep desire to make it work; then the faith and belief that it can work: then to hold that clear definite vision in your consciousness and see it working out step by step, without one thought of doubt or disbelief."
- Eileen Caddy, Footprints on the path.
I might add to this quote that you don't make it work because you know how it is going to work out or even that it is going to work out, but because you commit to trying. You just trust it. It is the knowing inside of you, not the knowing outside of you.
People seek someone like me out, often because they are afraid of the unknown. They think that if they only knew what was coming, or what they were suppose to be doing, they would know and the unknown fear would go away.
The fears of the unknown are limitless. Fear of dying, fear of failing, fear of loosing the life that we know, etc. Knowing what is coming next is not where we find relief. We find relief from our inner trust that we can survive what is coming next. Which you already know you can. Even if you think you can't. Let's face it, you have no choice you survive until you don't and then you don't care any more anyway.
People get falsely lured into thinking that if you just know what is coming next, you will be okay and things will go well. Even if we can see the tidal waves coming, we can't always escape being swept away by them. In fact, if you can see them, the chances are you are going to get swept away by them.
Let me tell you quite bluntly, the fear of the unknown is holding you back. You don't have to wait for all things to be clear to trust your gut. You don't have to ask yourself what will be, you just have to look around and see what is.
The very fact that it is unknown is an excellent opportunity to create something new, rich and authentic. It hasn’t been done yet. It is unique to you and what you are about to manifest. Predicting the outcome takes all the fun out of it. The journey is what we are truly embracing when we allow it to unfold before our eyes.
Your thoughts and fears are manifesting what you are experiencing and how much you will allow yourself to grow. See a new way out of those thoughts and fears so that the unknown is a gift, not a threat. So that the unknown is an opportunity waiting to unfold for you, that you know deep inside yourself you deserve and are attracting from your highest possible self.
Things to consider:
What unknown are you fearing most right now?
What are you holding yourself back from because you are afraid you might make the wrong choice or might mess it up?
What unknown future are you thinking of over and over, trying to lay down mental safety nets for?
Will you let those go and trust?
Look into yourself and release the need to know and bring in the "clear definite vision" of your own success, strength and wisdom, not because you know what is coming next but because you don't and you are excited to see it unfold. Embrace the excitement of the book that is yet to be written and release into the path that has no predestined outcome.
Spend time with your vision, get to know it, make friends with it and know what lengths you would go to make this vision a reality. Somethings hold a lot of weight for you and somethings were just a fun idea that you can move through and let go. Make a commitment to vision into what you want to go in that unknown opportunity and allow it blossom before you.
