Week C12 – I’m waiting!!?
Waiting for buds to bloom!
“……… there can be no failure in the accomplishment of any proper object in life if you but understand your power and persist in your object, because the mind-forces are ever ready to lend themselves to a purposeful will, in the effort to crystallize thought and desire into actions, events and conditions.” (Haanel 3:Intro)
This week has been another one of trusting and being patient. Nothing has deterred me from my path, but I have to admit to feeling a little frustrated at times when things do not always happen as quickly as I would like.
Who am I to dictate how fast or slow nature should take to reveal it’s beauty? I mentioned a few weeks ago how I have cared faithfully for a little weak miniature potted rose bush I bought a couple of years ago. It flourished and was doing really well until a few months back when I noticed all its leaves kept turning yellow and falling off. I decided to pruning it right back in the hopes of reviving it, as clearly leaving it as it was was not helping it. I cut away all the branches leaving a mere stubb. Had all that time and effort been a waste? Was my rose about to die? NO!!! Less than a week later it began to sprout new branches and today it is twice a big as it ever was and now has 13 buds about to bloom.
I love looking at it every morning on my kitchen window sill and am looking forward to the morning when the buds are open and the splendour within is revealed. Applied knowledge and an understanding of nature means I can be patient and know ripping the bud open is not the answer. Only patience and trust in nature to do what it does with perfect timing will do now.
As I keep taking steps, albeit smaller ones this week I know I am still making progress. How fragile are our hearts! Protect it, nurture it’s desires, stand boldly with courage and trust the Laws of the Universe are conspiring with perfect timing to bring to you your perfectly imagined ideal.
“Cherish your visions; cherish your ideals. Cherish the music that stirs in your heart, the beauty that forms in your mind, the loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts. For out of them will grow all delightful conditions, all heavenly environment; of these, if you but remain true to them, your world will at last be built.” (J. Allen – As a Man Thinketh)
I thought I’d share a piece of music that stirs my heart. Each instrument has a part to play and is introduced with precision and perfect timing. If any blundered in out of frustration instead of waiting patiently and allowing the music to unfold the effect would be lost. Hope you enjoy as much as I do. 🙂
