Life Is A Metaphor
Today I went through some piles on my desk. I'd been feeling hemmed in, overwhelmed, frustrated by them. I hadn't had time for months to take care of them, and finally it got to a breaking point. I didn't have room to work on my desk, and I couldn't find things I needed.
Stymied, restricted, overwhelmed. Recently, this had been the way I'd been feeling about life and my work. And here it was staring me in the face. I'd been manifesting my feelings in my work area.
Life is a reflection of how we feel about ourselves. Since I hadn't cleared away those piles, I'd blocked myself from moving forward. My own tendency not to file old mail and magazines had resulted in life not flowing easily for me. I'd been building a new business so fast, that I hadn't taken the time to clear away the debris. And it was beginning to obstruct access to the new structure.
We all do this. However we act towards ourselves, comes back at us from our world. Life is simply a mirror for us. All we have to do is look at where we're uncomfortable in our outer lives, and we can see where we're uncomfortable within our own minds and hearts.
There's an old saying, "What you are speaks so loudly, I can't hear what you're saying." We can't hide from ourselves. It's painted on the canvas of our lives. All we have to do is be aware.
Whatever your issue, look at how it's outpicturing in your life. You'll be able to recognize it in several areas, because it won't just be reflecting in an isolated spot of your canvas. It'll be reflecting in your entire environment.
Our outer experience is simply a metaphor for the thought energy that's in our minds. For instance, I have raced ahead so fast, that I haven't processed much of the information that I've accumulated. Not only in my business, but also in my life. My piles were old, outdated information that either needed to be tossed away or filed.
I'd procrastinated filing anything because it was so hard to fit anymore into the crammed drawers of my file cabinets. Recently, I expanded my file drawers. Another metaphor. I'd needed to expand my vision. Now, I need to take the time to finish going through my stuff before I go any further. When I do it in one area, it'll begin happening in the other areas as well. Only then will I begin to break free of my old restrictions and really accept more of Life.
