The life we have built on our beliefs and our values has taken years of work and effort. It is a beautiful house we are proud to live in.
One day, someone or something comes along and points a harsh bright spotlight on our house. We suddenly notice that the walls are barely standing and are full of cracks. The house we thought would take us through to our future is now in danger of collapsing.
When we realise that repair is out of the question, we are faced with building another house from scratch. The thought of starting all over again is exhausting and overwhelming. We cannot contemplate the hard work it will require so we sit confused and lost on the floor and simply stare at the walls.
What Would We Like Instead?
There is no question that we need to move into a new house that is solid, stable and able to withstand the ravages of the weather. That fact is inescapable. We can vividly imagine a better house but the amount of work required seems too big, too complicated and we don’t even know where to start.
Is There Another Way?
There is more than one way to get a new house. What if you won one in a lottery, someone left you a house in their will, or someone simply gave you a house they no longer needed? What if all you had to do was pack up our suitcase and a few personal items and just move in?
It’s the What That’s Important Not the How
When I realise my old beliefs and values no longer serve me, I can easily spend hours daydreaming about my future – a future which I don’t know how to create.
I have to simply trust that life will bring me what I need when I need it. I do not need to struggle, strive, or do anything I don’t want to do, I just need faith that my transformation is under way and will be completed in the fullness of time.
And suddenly, when I let go of my need to figure it all out and control the process, the changes come easily, beautifully and magically.
