My the days flow faster and faster as we approach the calendar close of Year 2011. Here is a thought that uplifted me when I read it:
“If you can find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn’t lead anywhere.”
~Frank A. Clark
The message from that quote for this Miracle Monday is to check your path. If there are no obstacles, which is an absolute probability, then are you going anywhere purposeful. Manifesting Monday Miracles is a pathway. Beware and be ready for the challenge of obstacles. Let us extend this discussion to solutions when challenges arise. There are specific questions and actions to take when confronted with the potential detour of an obstacle:
- What Do I Love to Practice? Martha Beck suggests this question as one pivot for manifesting miraculous, sustainable change. Miracles manifest when you practice what you love. According to Beck, “Studies have shown that masters are simply people who’ve practiced a skill intensely for 10,000 hours or more. That requires loving—not liking, loving—what you do. If you really want to excel, go where you’re passionate enough to practice.” Even after the love is gone, re-kindle the passion or move on to another love.
- What did I Learn? There is something to learn from each challenge we face. Ask yourself, what learning lessons are embedded here? Then, apply those lessons and create a manifesting future. Take different actions, acquire different habits, create distinct opportunities along your learning path.
These are only two questions that will start a review of what you love and what you have learned. It is my belief that loving and learning are the masterpieces of which miracles are made. spend some quiet time reflecting on these questions, answer them with quiet resolve and then make a conviction to Manifest what you love and learned this Monday.
You are the creator of the masterpiece.
