There can be little doubt that right now upon your planet it is as if you have all hit the fast forward button. You are all moving very fast, being very busy, but where are you going? What is the purpose to your speed?
There is something quite attractive about the fast pace of life, but also there is something to be said about taking things slowly, allowing things to naturally unfold (rather than forcing them) and having a little PATIENCE.
Patience is one of those words that my own channel Joseph struggles with – it sounds like an obligation word, but actually, it’s an invitation to slow down to allow the beauty and perfection to reveal itself before you. Just as a flower takes it’s time to flower, first the bud, then the slow beautiful unfurling of the petals and the opening of the flower to its full bloom – So it is with you! You are that flower, that same beauty is within you, waiting to come to full bloom. But just like an impatient gardener you want to bloom NOW! And when you do not flower, when life does not work the way you want it to and you feel that you have not done enough then you are hard on yourselves and do not let yourself off.
The journey towards enlightenment is a lifelong one, it is not something that happens overnight, and certainly it is not something to be forced, if you are not kind and gentle to yourself then you will find yourself always in self-judgement. Not the most useful state to be in when you wish to flower! So, might I suggest another approach? Be PATIENT with yourselves, let yourself have the TIME to gently explore each step of the spiritual adventure called life.
Practice makes perfect, nobody gets it right FIRST time, so let yourself OFF when you make a mis-step or stumble. Celebrate the progress you do make and be patient and kind when things don’t go quite right. You are an angel yes! And you are also a human being having a wonderful adventure. So be patient with yourself, you will not always get it right, and that’s quite alright!
Remember practice makes perfect, so when you do make a mistake, mess up or just get it plain wrong – consider it practicing for perfection – one day (very soon, we believe) you’ll have this bit of the journey sorted, and then? The next chapter and the next part of the adventure begins!
Life is a wonderful thing, so allow yourself the time to enjoy it. Be patient with yourself and kind to yourself – all my love Emmanuel xxx ❤️?
I feel such richness in my life having heard Jo, Ram Dass and Emmanuel speak. It’s all coming together after many years of searching and there is great contentment in me and also some love for myself which has been rather thin in recent months. Thank you from my loving heart.
Good morning Mavis,
Thank you so much for your kind words, how lovely to hear from you!
It’s so good to hear that Emmanuel’s messages have resonated with you, loving ourselves may not be easy, but I’ve come to understand it’s one of the fastest ways to contentment and having a more ease-filled life. Being kind, gentle, generous and loving to ourselves is perhaps the biggest gift we can give ourselves and those around us. As we love ourselves so we are able to love others more fully, and that’s the thing with self-love – it’s a gift that keeps on giving!
so thank you for getting in touch, and if you would ever like to have a Skype 1-1 with Emmanuel then please do get in touch, we’d be happy to make that a reality for you.
in peace and love,
Jo and Emmanuel xx
