Perfect Timing


Goals, resolutions, visions, personal purpose, mission, and dharma are all words used today to describe our personal desires. Some spiritual perspectives teach desire is bad, but I believe it depends on what drives the desire. Yesterday, my blog addressed that it is not too late for your dreams and your dreams lie in the choices you make today.

Pushing on doors, barging through, over, or under an opportunity (because no matter what you believe that door has to open RIGHT NOW) is like taking a hurricane of water and deluging your fruit, which may still grow, but won’t be as sweet. Perfect settings don’t just happen, gardens don’t just happen. They require dreaming and careful cultivation with love. What garden do you dream for yourself today?
