“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler.” ~Henry David Thoreau
We often have-
All of which we do very little or nothing with.
We don’t share them.
We don’t put them out there…we hold them into ourselves, often because we’re waiting for just the PERFECT opportunity.
“When I’m standing in front of 10,000 people THEN I’ll share this.”
“I don’t want this to be stolen from me and used by someone else – so I’ll wait”
“When all my ducks are aligned – perfect website, marketing, logo etc. – THAT will be the perfect time.”
“When I have the perfect home, mate, materials then I’ll do it”
But this misses a very important key.
There is a concept in many faiths of “sowing and reaping”
It is also called the Law of Cause and Effect.
What it comes down to is very simple -whatever you sow you will reap. Do not sow sparingly worried about the outcome – just know that whatever you put out there, you are going to get back a harvest from, like after like.
This concept is often looked at in the negative: “Don’t put bad things into the world or karma will get you” – and this too is an oddly human trait to look at things in the most negative way possible.
But let’s look at it from another angle:
Whatever you sow you will reap- As I go through the world – I don’t have to live in fear of others stealing my ideas or inspirations. I don’t have to with hold my “seed” for waiting for the perfect opportunity. In fact doing so may mean I miss the “season” for planting.
It’s time to cast your seeds in action.
How the seed comes up – is really outside of the scope of our concern.
Our concern is only with putting the seed out there, so cast care to the wind!
Do not sow sparingly worried about the outcome – To sow sparingly – holding back because we fear that this is our “one” idea, or we don’t have enough or “what if I use this all up and there is no more” comes from a world view of lack. When we understand that we are connected to Source energy in a Universe of magnificent abundance – and we TRULY believe that abundance is available for ME (Yes YOU!) then there is no position of “saving” seed. We understand that how and where the seed comes up – is also outside of our scope of control. It may spring up exactly where and how we planted it – or come back in new and amazing way that we could not anticipate. This is the Joy Factor!
