How often is in our lives, that we feel like only part of who have yet to become. That we feel like we are not yet complete, that we are missing part of ourselves. That there are things missing; like we are someone how flawed and an unfinished work.
I think that thinking is flawed thinking.
I don’t think that we are incomplete at all. I think in each day, each moment of our existence, we are as complete as we are meant to be in that moment. Where are feet are planted, where we are standing right now, right at this very moment, is where we are meant to be, and we are fully WHO we are meant to be as well.
I mean, think about it for a moment. And, as you are thinking about it, try to think about it objectively and rationally. Do you really believe that whatever tools or skills that you possess today, are half or a quarter of what you really need? I mean, you are functioning right now today most likely as a student, or an employee. You are a parent, a child, and a sibling. You are a neighbor, a home owner, a taxpayer. You put your kids on the bus, drive your car, listen to the problems of your family and friends. And, in all of those roles, even when we don’t feel like we are fully present, we are able to fulfill those roles. Maybe we don’t think we are doing the best job, but we are doing the job.
On any given day, I truly believe that we are doing the best that we can, in the circumstances and life events that we find ourselves in. We possess certain skills, knowledge, and life experience that allow us to make the most informed choices that we are able to in that moment. In the next moment, we will have a bit more knowledge and information that will assist us. Whether we feel open to our lives, open to the Universe that feeds us, or not, we gain information, even when we are not looking for it.
But, just imagine when we are actually open to our lives evolving. When we welcome that information, that new knowledge, when those life lessons that come our way are an excitement for us, something that we look forward to? Life is always going to come our way, and it is even going to bring things to us that are tragic, or disturbing or frightening. Still, being open to whatever it is that life brings our way, makes what we gain from it in terms of new information almost limitless.
We are complete, right now on this day, as we are also evolving. That which seems like a contradiction is actually a dance of cooperative energies: we have all that we need in this moment in order to be present in the moment; and in addition, what we gain in that moment as knowledge of the universe helps us to evolve to whereever we are to go next. As each sun sets and prepares for its new dawn, we are wiser, stronger, more learned about what what lies ahead.
Even when we don’t know it.
