Sunlight sparks off kelp-clad rocks. Colours dance, mauve, pink and brown. These rocks are washed with foam-filled water by the ocean's eternal rhythm. Each wave approaches as a quiet ocean swelling that rises over rocks before cascading ocean bound with a deep sucking. Brown kelp weaves back and forth and up and down with each beat of the ocean's heart.
Your Potential Is Deeply Meaningful
We may not realize it, but everything encountered while following our potential follows the eternal rhythm of life and is significant – every feeling, every thought, every person, every happening. These events are the heartbeat of our lives. As our understanding develops we become increasingly able to read the meaning of these signs. Signs that we encounter along the way can be either positive, drawing us to a particular course of action, or negative, taking us away from a particular course of action.
For example I had been hang-gliding for six years. I was spending less time with my hang-gliding buddies. I also felt, through inner guidance, increasing dissatisfaction in having hang-gliding as my hobby. Then I had an accident when taking off and, although unhurt, could easily have been killed. Taken together I decided from these signs that hang-gliding was no longer a suitable hobby for me. So I left and took up charity work instead. These were examples of negative signs taking me away from a particular course of action.
My existing business had entered a quiet period. Clients were not contacting me. Being at home alone and sitting quietly in my chair felt right. On the basis of these signs I put my business on the shelf and withdrew from the world. While I was in that quiet space I received the inspiration to write this book! The negative signs of clients' lack of interest in my existing business and the positive signs coming from inner guidance about spending long periods on my own at home, combined to encourage me to take this course of action. As we follow our potential we will be given many signs. These signs will help us find the way ahead.
Events, happenings and incidents in the outer world can help us understand the promptings we are receiving inwardly from our calling. All we need to do is learn to read their significance. As we follow our star we encounter many meaningful coincidences. These coincidences help us to have our needs met, even if we are in tight financial circumstances.
For example during my healing period I was not working and had very little money. Although I lived in the centre of the city at the heart of the public transport system, some journeys were proving difficult to make. I made two new close personal friends. One of them helped me buy a bicycle adapted for carrying heavy loads and offered to service it for me. The other friend shared his car with me. Between the public transport system, my bicycle and the shared car all my transport problems were solved, even though I had very little money.
As we see these meaningful coincidences at work in our lives it helps us to develop faith and trust, not as an abstract theological concept, but as a living reality at the heart of how we live our lives. Developing this faith and trust is important, because sometimes following our potential can feel like walking a tightrope. This applies whether our guided life path is currently a business project, a time of withdrawal and healing, or the ending of a relationship. At times we may have very little room to manoeuvre, especially financially. We need not worry because while we are following our potential an invisible force is supporting us, which will not let us fall. That force is love.
As we begin to transcend our worries fears and anxieties, we find ourselves in a flow of ever increasing love and significance. What is the significance? What do the signs point to? Where is our star taking us? Our destiny is taking us back. We are returning to wholeness. Travelling the inner journey has much more meaning than any other life path we could take.
