When trying to forge change in any way, it's all important to begin to do it when the inspiration comes, not later.
Whether talking, writing or taking
physical action, the time to act is right when the impulse comes,
even if it's a task that can't be fully completed at the time.
Initiating what the conscious impulse is indicating, to whatever
degree, is the key to making manifest whatever Universe is telling
From various mundane tasks to contacting
someone with a vital piece of information or a message of love and
encouragement that was laid on our hearts, the time to act is right
then. If the inspiration cools and we don't respond, we often forget
and thereby neglect that golden opportunity.
Yet if we strike while the iron is hot we succeed in helping to mold a better life for someone, and a better world for everyone.
If you know you're supposed to move, for example, just start preparing to move. You'll be amazed at how things fall into place. You can't steer a boat if it's standing still. It has to be in motion for the rudder to work. So what if you push out the "wrong way" at first.
No worries, a little flick of the rudder
and your entire direction has changed.
It's called the trimtab.
Buckminster Fuller was so taken by this amazing phenomenon that he had it inscribed on his tombstone.
In his words:
This to me is one of the most profound metaphors for the power of the individual.
We each, one decision at a time, one
act, one expression of love, affect the direction of not only our
own lives, but every life on this planet and as I've said before,
change the entire morphic field of which we are all part.
Some Prompts Just
When things like that happen and the same prompt just keeps coming around, then it's something important and must be listened to and acted upon. I experienced this recently when I was considering approaching some people with an idea but was reluctant for different reasons.
I laid the prompts aside and went about
my way, but sure enough, they kept coming around like the first
time, just popping into my mind with the same sense of "suggestion"
they had the first times.
It's like learning a new language and
finally getting some of the basics down to where you can recognize
words and phrases enough to get by, a huge boost in your confidence
which in turn inspires us to keep going and keep learning.
This is actually what inspired this post. I was on the porch looking at the night sky and thinking about someone whom I so admire, love and respect and knew I needed to communicate that and what about this unique person made me feel that way, which thankfully I did.
I don't know if there was an auspicious
moment involved in their life at the time, maybe I'll find out, but
I knew it had to be said and right then.
