Today I went to the Center for Spiritual Living, or as I sometimes call ‘church’. I haven’t been in a very long time and I was really searching for a nice dose of inspiration. I’ve been increasingly interested in opening up the pathways in brain for more spiritual understandings.
But, as life would have it…I didn’t really get it. It was a nice service overall, but I found myself nodding off during the talk. How rude right? I mean, here I am sitting in an audience full of people listening to a discussion that is obviously speaking to many of the group and I’m nodding off! I kept asking myself, why did I come? Why did my intuition guide me here today? I was expecting to listen to one of my favorite speakers and get a GIANT dose of LOVE! But, instead I just spent most of the time wondering what brought me there. I was even lucky enough to run into a student of mine that I hadn’t seen in years…
And then it dawned on me, I was looking outside myself for inspiration. Truly, inspiration must come from an internal place. Sure, others can help us to find connections that we were not able to see or feel before, but really I must look inside. So now the question is; how do I find my own inspiration? Sometimes it just happens naturally and sometimes it needs a little coaxing. And how to coax? Set my expectations.
So I’ve set my expectations to find more daily inspiration, instead of ‘wanting’ to find inspiration, I expect to find it. It makes a difference, you know. Expectation is far more powerful than want. So instead of searching and seeking something that I expect ‘might’ be out there. I expect that it ‘will’ be within me. So tell me, what are your current expectations in life? Do you think that any of them could be adjusted to be in alignment with what you desire out of life?
Lots of love -
