While it’s not good for your health to pack on extra pounds, the heaviest burden to your well-being is the extra “wait” you’re carrying – all the excuses you’ve swallowed for why you can’t live your dreams; all the doubt you’ve digested that’s keeping you on the couch until the ‘the timing is right.’ As Napoleon Hill instructed, “Do not wait: the time will never be ‘just right’. Start where you stand, and work whatever tools you may have at your command and better tools will be found as you go along.”
The false idea that we must wait for something or someone to change before we can step into our vision is a core reason we get stuck and feel like a victim. There’s only one Power, one Cause, and one Law over your life — God or Infinite Love (whatever concept you prefer). And it is within you. You’re a Divine Power plant. And a power plant doesn’t receive energy, it generates it.
One Meta principle of Emergence is you are the only law over your life. But to activate it, you must act like it’s true — then live and give from that place. That’s why Gandhi said we must be the change we want to see in the world. You can’t have what you’re not willing to become – in consciousness and character. If you’re willing, there’s always a way. But sometimes you have to pioneer it – because the way is not ‘out there,’ YOU are the way.
There’s always an abundance of everything needed in this moment, but it’s largely invisible like radio waves until you tune in and become a channel for it. “Lift up your eyes and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest,” John 4:35. This passage, directed to people waiting for some future date to reap their good, declares that, spiritually speaking, the good is already here. But we must focus on the higher vision and raise our vibration — then get to work in the field!
The fruit’s not just going to jump off the vine and into our basket. It requires labor — but not struggle. The farmer must plant and cultivate, but he would never be so foolish to think he can force the seed to grow. The law of emergence does the heavy lifting it takes to bring in the harvest.
