TRUST THE PROCESS. In my quietest of minds I know it exists. I know it takes time in the way that it sees fit. We can try to manipulate + accelerate it, seeking shortcuts + ways to outsmart the system, but you can’t outrun it. The process is there until it isn’t anymore. Breathing in it’s own divine timing.
Easier said than done. Force is something we’ve been taught. Door doesn’t open? Break it down! Opportunities aren’t sticking? Push harder! People aren’t listening? Talk louder! We’re a society which takes pride in our ability to AUGMENT anything. Even our lives are sparklier versions of reality bc of our uncanny ability to be our own brand ambassadors via social media. Low followers? Wait ’til you see this!
We’re always in a rush to ‘get there’. This can be applied to anything: health, recovery, body image, dream jobs + careers, in relationship; titles, engagement, marriage, divorce, successful businesses + brands, being global ambassadors, ie; ‘making it’. Even ‘enlightenment’ feels like a destination where upon arrival we can finally share “we’re here!”.
VERY FEW people talk about the process WHILE they’re in it. It’s unsexy, tedious + monotonous, filled with setbacks + disappointments. It often times tests our dedication with it’s INVISIBILITY. Are you willing to trust in something you cannot see?
Yesterday I was given clearance to move my body after six weeks of post-op recovery. The timeline made it slightly easier to trust that I’d ‘get there’ but I still found myself agonizing over the slowness, invisibility + inability to do. It’s my learned-behavior: a need to speed things up bc IVE GOT NO TIME FOR THIS STILLNESS! IM BUSY!! MOVE OUT OF MY WAY!! 🙄🙄
The truth is that the Universe will keep clipping your wings until you get the message. SURRENDER. It whispers. Okay! I hear you. I am grateful for this lesson + reminder to [BE] HERE NOW.
Trust in the Divine Timing. Things are always already in Process. Now stop forcing things + get back to the STILLNESS of BEing🧘🏼♀️
