In today’s article, I would like to share something that I discovered that forever changed my life.
That helped me to take back my power and live my life once again.
What I discovered forever changed the way in which I engage in and participate in my life.
What I discovered helped me to realize that for many years I had a dysfunctional relationship with hope.
What I mean by a dysfunctional relationship with hope is that I expected that hope would do for me what I needed to do for myself. Let me explain. For many years I found myself buying into the notion that if I just hoped enough, what I hoped for would manifest itself. Sort of like that magical thinking manifested in fairy tales. Consequently, when hope did not manifest itself as I expected, I became discouraged with hope.
You see I had bought into the notion that hope had let me down because hope did not play by the rules that I had made for hope. In my cynicism, I found myself scoffing at the idea / impact of hope.
My cynicism, surrounding the idea of hope; continued until I reached a spiritual bottom and experienced a spiritual awakening. My spiritual awakening revealed to me that hope had always been present. My spiritual awakening revealed that hope is neither passive nor ambiguous, but active and engaging. With my spiritual awakening, hope opened my eyes and revealed that I could no longer sit on the “sidelines”.
No longer wait on the sidelines, but that I needed to get in and stay in the game. The “game” being the process of creating hope in my life. Hope also helped me to realize that I needed to be an actor.
An actor, instead of as a reactor in my life. Hope helped me to realize that I needed to be an active participant in my life. An active participant in my life by taking an active role in the creation of hope. My spiritual awakening showed me that I needed to learn from my each of my circumstances — past and present — to engage with hope. Hope helped me to realize that as I made the effort to learn I would be…
Given opportunities and that these opportunities would help me to create hope in my life. What hope revealed to me was that my circumstances were tutors to teach me how to create hope in my life. What hope revealed to me was that by taking advantage of opportunities I could take an active role. An active role in the creation of hope in my life. To create hope in my life to empower my process and journey.
What hope revealed to me was that I no longer had to wait for hope to do for me what I could do for myself.
