2-36. If the opportunity you want has not yet manifested it may not be because you are not ready, instead the opportunity may not be ready for you.
Do not allow yourself to become discouraged simply because any particular opportunity, event, situation or alignment that you might ever desire to see manifested in your life has not yet arrived. It is important to realize that there is much that the universe can do to assist you to achieve and realize all of the goals that you can dream, but some opportunities require orientations of variables that absolutely lie completely outside of your sphere of influence. As such, it is best to continue maintaining your visualization of the situation that you want to see realized while accepting that you do not know all that there is to know about what may be needed to first implement your dream and then make it whole and present in your life. This can seem to be frustrating at times, and certainly it can require great patience. But peace is not found in a desire to manipulate the events that must transpire to effect a wholesale alteration of your material reality. Peace is found through the acceptance of your innate faith as well as a desire to place the bulk of your energy in the Hands of God, rather than attempting to rely solely on your own efforts. This is because while there is no miracle that God cannot work within your life, these miraculous events will not become real simply because you have decided that you are certain that you are ready – right now and not one moment later – as you may feel at times. You may indeed be ready and wholly capable of recognizing the synchronicities that will indicate that any particular desire has blossomed into the fullness of its fruition, ready to be plucked from its bud and enjoyed by you in its absolute perfection. But you may not. It is not for you to attempt to judge your own willingness to accept that which is offered, for you may or may not be correct in your judgment of your own state of openness to that which is frequently offered by the universe in forms that you are not at all expecting. But even if you are absolutely ready, the opportunity that you have for so long sought may not be ready for you. This is because there may be many other factors in play for which no definite timeline exists. Other people may need to mature or grow within their own lives before they can be ready to accept the Light that you shine from your heart. Certain other situations may need to run their full courses before their lessons can finally be accepted, ingested and processed by whomever is the recipient of their gentle offerings of wisdom and knowledge. Many of the Children of God now incarnate in this world are hesitant to accept that which is being offered to them, even when they may be aware, if only on a conscious level, that they are being given a gift of knowledge. They may be frightened, unwilling to change, complacent in their current situation or even paralyzingly certain that any alteration of their life may bring about such a monumental change that they will simply be crushed under the weight of the courage that they believe they will need to allow such a transformation to occur. Have patience with these individuals, for they do not yet know or are currently unwilling to accept that all that occurs in this world is but a process of alteration, growth, renewal and regeneration that will never destroy them, no matter how horrific the prospect of massive upheaval may seem to them at the time. Know that when all of the necessary vibrations, alignments, situations and correlations that form the composite elements of the desire you have expressed have been satisfied, that which you have asked for will become whole and ready to enter your life. But never forget that the form which this manifested desire may present itself is not the substance which comprises its essential nature. Simply because you have expressed a sincere desire for growth or alteration for yourself does not mean that the manner in which such a request is fulfilled by the universe will be at all recognizable by you, at least at first. There is much more to this world than what can be perceived with just the senses of your body. In these instances, it is much more valuable for you to slow your thoughts and to settle down into the quiet center of your heart, asking your heart what it feels about the new energy that has just arrived in your life. That which is fully in alignment with what is best for you – that which represents the next step in your journey or the next level of awareness and growth that you are ready to progress through – will be clear to your heart even if your mind fails to grasp that is being presented. Trust your instincts at all times, for they are the unspoken truth of your soul manifested into a presentation that your rather abstract mind can understand, even if simply through a process of trusting yourself that has no definitive correlation to the logical presentations of your fully formed thoughts. That which you ask for with your heart is not specific instances or exact situations but rather feelings, desires for realizations of transformational emotional experiences, the mechanisms of which may not arrive in ways that you had any reason to expect. This does not mean that you are not being presented with a method and structure through which you can experience the desire you requested. It merely means that you have been presented with the answer to the questions you sought, even if you do not understand the reasons why the answer appears to be strange, unusual or fully outside of your commonplace, everyday experience. Faith in the miracles of God and the certainty that God Knows what it is that you are actually requesting, in Truth, will massively assist you to accept that which arrives, when it arrives, even if you do not understand why such a long period of time, from your perspective, had to elapse before your desires were fulfilled. For indeed they will be, when and only when their time is right and often times in ways that will exceed your wildest dreams.
