If we can’t see “how” something can be, we dismiss it from what we think is possible.
Wow, that’s pretty pompous!
The devil is in the details, for sure, and it’s putting a strangle-hold on your happiness.
First, you don’t know shit within the realm of all that the collective “we”, the seven billion of us, know. You probably don’t know much about ballet other than tutus, pink tights and Baryshnikov or Misty Copeland. You probably know less than that about cell biology, oceanography and a million other things you don’t even know are things!
Secondly, you don’t know shit about all that the collective “we” haven’t discovered and explained yet. And even with the things we think we’ve explained, we often, years later, find out we were not quite right about it or just dead ass wrong.
Those two points alone should be enough to show you that just because you don’t know the exact “what” or the eternally tormenting “how”, does not mean that what you want, or at least the feeling and general idea of it, isn’t possible.
Then there is faith. If you have faith, rely on it. Lean into it. And don’t step backwards into the murky depths of the how, what and why that will always welcome you back into the lair.
Faith: (2a) belief and trust in and loyalty to God (2b) firm belief in something for which there is no proof; trust (excerpt from Merriam-Webster)
If you have faith, then simple thoughts and prayers like “show me”, “I’m ready”, “please and thank you” and some gratitude that you do not have to figure out the exact how and what are enough! Think of happy times and hold the thought “more, please!”. Focus on feeling joy. The way will reveal itself. When you hold thoughts of what you want, or at least how you want to feel each day, you draw it to you. When you feel stress, worried, panicked, frightened, depressed, sad or hopeless about them because you can’t “figure out how” you send it away. What happens is a perpetual push and pull and what will make you happy is trapped one block over from where you are.
Cut off the “push”. Become ironclad in your focus on what you want. Talk to God, the Goddess, the Universe…simple one or two words…and recite these when the fear, panic and doubt tries to rush in. Do not let them get a grip on you.
Do not trap yourself in an unnecessary purgatory, pushing your happy life away, when you could relax, send the universe simple clear messages about what you do want and be thankful that you don’t know shit. “You’re welcome”- love, your higher self.
Hugs and happiness,
