    Don’t Quit​

    When things go wrong, as they sometimes will;
    When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill;
    When funds are low and debts are high;
    And you want to smile, but have to sigh;
    When care is pressing you down more than a bit,
    Rest, if you must, but don’t ever quit.

    Life can be queer with its twists and turns,
    As every one of us sometimes learns.
    But many a failure can turn about,
    And we could be winning, if only we stick things out.
    Don’t give up, even if the pace appears to be slow.
    You may succeed, with just one more blow!

    Success is failure turned inside out;
    It’s the silver tint on the clouds of doubt.
    And you never can tell how close to it you are,
    It could be near, when it still seems very far!
    So, stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit.
    And when things seem at their worst.
    That’s the time when it’s most unwise to quit.

    The way I see it, when things sometimes seemingly go wrong in our lives, it is always us who are out of step with the Universe and not the other way round. It is then more than likely that the energies that it is currently putting at our disposal wish to tell a different story and are trying to steer us into a different direction. If one seems to run into one invisible wall after another, when obstacle after obstacle rears its head, it is a safe bet that the Universe is attempting to give us a message that somehow we are barking up the wrong tree; and it may well be the case that it has something much better up its sleeve for us, if we but pay attention.

    The world around us is a mirror of what is taking place inside us. Through its actions and reactions it is constantly trying to give us some kind of feedback and guidance. This is known as Universal guidance and it’s most certainly worth everyone’s while to pay attention to its communications. And whenever things in our lives are not going the way we would want them to, then almost certainly we are receiving a signal from the Highest. We do well to consider then whether the time has come for taking stock and finding ways of getting back into harmony with ourselves and the lessons we have agreed to learn in the course of our present To re-align our energies to those of the Universe, it may be necessary to make some changes in the direction of our life.

    It almost goes without saying, but I will mention it anyway that because we have freedom of choice, we do not have to do anything of the kind. Yet, if you are a wise one, you will pay attention to whatever guidance comes your way. So, next time things seemingly go wrong in your life, why not try your hand at something else and look towards channelling your energies into different avenues of expression?

    You can save yourself many disappointments by bearing in mind that doors will only ever open for anyone when they are meant to. And when one of them does, the experience can be like something one usually sees only in funny films. Having so got used to pushing and shoving uselessly at far too many doors, there may well come the moment, when – metaphorically speaking – we have found the right one. It then flies open so suddenly that it feels as if one was almost shooting out through the window, at the other end of the room. Why not try it out for yourself, sometime?

    True trust and faith in ourselves, our life and the Universe can only grow in anyone through first hand experiences, like the one that is now before us. To enable us to learn to trust, when we try one door and it will not open for us, no matter how hard we try, when things seem to be going wrong, as they sometimes will, it is worth our while to reflect and have a bit of a dialogue with ourselves; something like this: ‘Let me see, this door is obviously not meant for me, maybe the Universe has something else for me in mind. So, I’ll be patient and wait for another opening, for come it will. Are things really going wrong in my life or is the Universe trying to give me a message that I need a change of direction?

    ‘Could this be happening for my own good and because the Universe loves me and knows my true wants and needs better than I do? Could it be protecting me against myself, because it wants me to find what is rightfully mine? Is it possible that something better is in store for me, something I might not have imagined even in my wildest dreams? Perhaps it would be better if I waited patiently for a while; maybe another chance will then come my way. Now, isn’t that better than despairing or even swearing at the Universe because it does not seem to wish to fulfil my wishes? Because I am your child, Universe, let me try the loving way instead. Alright, here I go! I love you and trust you, as you love and trust me. After all, that makes an awful lot of sense, you know!’

    And when funds are low and debts are high, I need to ask myself: ‘Why am I not taking part in the Universe’s abundance? Is it because I am not sharing my own abundance with it, my gifts and talents, of which we all have many, with those around me? How can I increase my input into life, so that I can get more out of it? Do I need to be less selfish and think more about the good of the whole of society, life, the planet and the Universe? Why don’t I try and see what happens?’

    Our World Needs You Now!

    Our World Needs You Now!
    Our world needs you now,
    More than you will ever know
    Or presently can imagine.

    Our world needs your gifts.
    Your heart. Your compassion.
    Your understanding.
    Your ability to listen, speak, feel and act.

    You have gifts that only you can give,
    In the way that you and you alone can do.
    The time for holding back is over.
    The time for believing that you are not good enough,
    not ready enough, not wise enough, has passed.
    The time for fearing that you are too good,
    too powerful, too magnificent, too intelligent,
    no longer exists.

    You have run out of excuses.
    You have exhausted every reason why you cannot be
    Exactly the one you were meant to be,
    When you were first placed here.
    Your usual distractions no longer distract.
    Your strategies for staying small,
    For resisting the call to awaken,
    Are dead.

    Our world needs you now.
    More than you know.
    In the great circle of life, a space has been held for you
    Since before time began.
    As you wandered, as you explored, your shoes were waiting,
    Marking your place. No one else approached,
    For your shoes can only be filled by you.
    You agreed to step into them, when you were ready to take
    Your rightful place on the circle.

    And now, you are ready.
    You are bored with your own self-absorption.
    You choke and gag on your endless self-reflection and
    Your belly is filled with an urgency to leave jobs
    Behind and embrace your real work.

    This is the precise moment that our world needs you.
    You have uncovered and recovered and discovered enough.
    Your authentic self can now see the light of day,
    So that you can step into the shoes that have been
    waiting for you, since before time began.
    Every moment that you delay,
    Widens the hole in the web of existence.
    For you are an essential ingredient,
    Without which Creation is incomplete.

    Global harmony rests in the palm of your hand.
    Planetary peace cannot be attained without
    your heart, your mind, your spirit playing its part.
    No one else has been assigned the job of picking
    up the ball that is lying at your feet.
    Our world needs you and our world needs you now.
    More than you know.
    More than you can ever imagine.
