Wisdom Day 36
Follow me on Twitter @WisdomWhispers and hashtag #100daysofwisdom for more reflections on life, love and the wisdom of Spirit!
“One of the most pervasive beliefs I see that stops people from manifesting their dreams is that change and inspiration is this huge quantum moment that happens all at once. It’s just not true. Change happens one day, one moment, one step at a time. It’s 10,000 small steps that add up to a big leap.
The good news is that all you need to do right now is take one step. The tough news is that there’s a BUNCH of these small steps that you need to take to make the transformation you are dreaming about a reality. Sorry.
It’s not the best news in the world, but what’s rad is that all you need to do is focus on the next step. Not the third step, or the 100th step, just the next one.” ~ Mastin Kipp, TheDailyLove.com
Mastin’s daily dose of wisdom reminds me that the transformation of tomorrow is built out of the moment-to-moment change along the way.
There are countless examples in nature that make the same point. The incremental change of a seedling planted in fertile ground that yields fruit in due season. The incremental change that takes place over nine months in a mother’s womb and leads to the manifestation of a newborn baby. Or the incremental change that takes place in a chrysalis in about ten days’ time that leads to the manifestation of a Monarch butterfly. And every developmental step along the way is critical to lay the proper foundation for transformation.
Moment to moment the seedling, the embryo, the butterfly are all in the process of becoming something greater, something well beyond the limits of their current state. Something they couldn’t comprehend if they tried. Suddenly (or, so it seems) transformation comes. Their old form is released and the new form emerges.
The results of transformation are all created out of the daily commitment to move toward the intended goal. If you’re anything like me, this is really good news … and bad news all in one. And the reason for both is the same. Tomorrow’s transformation depends on our willingness to commit in each moment to the change that would lead us there. The choice and power of co-creation is within our grasp. It’s called free will.
That’s where faith and commitment come into play. That’s when trusting a loving, Divine Force to guide you to your highest and best good, and a commitment to do your part to manifest the transformation you desire in your life, is essential.
So commit to moment-by-moment change today to manifest the spiritual growth and transformation that awaits you.
