Consider the Moment Before You Bury It 02/09/2012
I started reading Conversations with God (written by Neale Donald Walsch) this week. I can't believe I haven't picked it up sooner. It seems like a book my parents should have given me in Junior High.
I'm only in the beginning of the novel, but it's already juicy. One of my favorite parts so far is where Donald asks God why "he" can't just appear before us. God replies something along the lines that "he" does - only we don't believe it's him, because in our minds we've already come up with what God should look like, appear as, feel like, sound like and be.
So when "he" does actually show up, we deny it's "him".
It made me think about all of the other things in life we do this with - abundance, love, opportunity, friendship.
How many times has it been right under our noses, waiting for us to say YES! without us even noticing. Most likely because we were too stubborn to consider it might be an opportunity for love or abundance. Silencing its posibility with our judgments and know all.
Just for today, I will open my heart and mind. I will consider each opportunity for its full potential and possibility. I will consider what I am denying before I dig its grave.
