Life is this way and growth, spiritual and the physical, happens in stages. Success is the end result of a stage. It may have been a sympathetic response to a thought, what we heard or visualized. Either way, stimulation elicits a response from you and those around you. So maybe the question aught to be "What is your soul craving today?"
I'll never forget the day when my husband announced to me he was going to catch a Tarpon. It happened innocently enough. We were at our favorite beach, lines in the water and BAMB, a strike. The familiar whine of fishing line going out and then my rod went like lightening towards the surf, right out of the holder! Never saw my husband move so fast, he grabbed it just in time to set the hook when this monstrous silver bullet lept straight up out of the water a few yards in front of us. The scene was surreal, slow motion, then instincts took over as I grabbed for my camera. AGAIN, this fish leapt straight up and this time shook his head and slapped down on the surf and our line went limp.
This was the beginning of my husband's vow and his research began. What type of hook to get, what bait to use, you name it. His conversation and concentration was on that dang fish! Rain or shine..he was game. Every time he went fishing he would say; "today might be the day honey" and his day finally came. It was a 40 min struggle, man nor fish were hurt as the tarpon was released to his natural habitat and the news spread to ours. He never gave up and caught success and was content for awhile. Now he wants to land a shark.
One of my greatest mentors shared with me "do few things but do them well, heart felt work grows purely". (yup, teachers can come through songs) and well it's a truth I have visited many a time. Our conscious mind helps us make decisions every day as it visits with our subconscious in our dreams. Maybe this is what Jesus meant when He said: on earth as it is in Heaven, where there is no need for pacifiers because success will be a 24/7 reality, and no jelly fish in the waters. In the mean time....dream on.
