“You can’t connect the dots looking forward. You can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in the future.”Steve Jobs
Any choice you make is irrelevant. I’ve always dwelled on decisions, hemmed and hawed so much. Now I understand that it doesn’t matter. Any choice you make, minor or major, will lead on the correct path, the path to God. You will learn what you need to learn, you will have the experience you need to have. From God’s perspective, high above, it’s all good. Imagine we are like ants running around the dirt, working hard, busying ourselves with our goals. Maybe an ant carries something heavy up a hill and feels proud. His work is important to him. But to us observing these ants, it’s just a lot of running around. It’s great that the ants are doing their thing being ants, but the details of it all are inconsequential because in the end, they are all fulfilling their purpose as ants, even if one ant fails and one ant succeeds.
Ever hear the song, “High Hopes” by Frank Sinatra? It feels like a lot is riding on certain decisions. Should we or shouldn’t we? But the important thing is that we make the decision. Quit hemming and hawing. Stop riding the fence and take action. Indecisiveness gives the Universe mixed messages. Decide what you want and take decisive action. Then the whole Universe will conspire to bring it to you. For me, this is so much easier said than done. Knowing what I truly want is really hard. I’m a Libra, and I like to balance everything out, look at things from all sides, and I’m prone to overthinking things. Realizing that, when faced with a choice, whichever path I take, I’m held in the hand of God, helps take the pressure off and the ego out of the situation.
We are blessed with free will and the opportunity to make choices every moment of the day, some big, some small. That’s our human gift. We are an expression of God and co-creators with the Universe. The adventures are there to be had. Resolve to make that choice, the one you dream about, and it will happen for you. And even if it doesn’t, in the act of choosing it, you will grow and perhaps discover something even better.
