If you wait for the perfect time, it will never come. Your idea—your hope, your dream, your vision, your plan—will never materialize. If you want to make something happen, you have to start where you are, with what you have, and take the first step.
You cannot wait for it or it will never happen. You are a function of the Universe, carrying out the desires of Life Itself. These desires—your desires—must be fulfilled through you.
The first step is a step of faith. After that, the Universe responds to your faith and begins to contribute to your creation. Ideas will come more quickly, you will meet people sympathetic to your dream, and you will encounter situations that “coincidentally” help you along the way.
The first step is always the hardest one to make. Every one after that is easier. Eventually, you wonder why you waited so long to start.
To keep pondering some idea that you’d like to bring into reality “someday” is to keep it in the unseen future—the world of possibilities that may or may not become reality—depending on you. NOW is the time to begin.
Tomorrow never comes.
Fear holds you back, and fear is a harsh overseer. Fear hates you and everything you hold dear. It tries to make you form a protective womb around yourself, filled with amniotic fluid. You know, like back in the womb, before you felt the cold harshness and separation of being your own person. Back when life was warm, safe, and comfortable, and you felt your mother’s heart beating, the soothing sound of her voice, and the gentle rocking of her movements. This was your experience for most of your first year on Earth.
Those memories are still with you. They are your first impressions of life. But that life is long past, though you might unconsciously try to return to it. And, as an adult, it’s no way to live.
It’s scary to step out into the darkness of the unknown. The other option, though, is to stay in your fake womb with your TV and your bed and your familiar objects. Safe. Protected.
There is light out there! The light within you aches to meet the light outside. They meet when you break your shell and take that leap of faith, not knowing whether there is solid ground to stand on.
It doesn’t matter, though. You have wings.
