What if we make repeated attempts at attracting into our lives that which we want but it continues to be out of our grasp? It may be time to reexamine what we really want.
We may feel no matter how hard we try, we cannot seem to get what we want. Are we wanting what we think we want or what we think we are supposed to want? At some point in our lives we may have adopted an idea of what we are supposed to be. Perhaps our parents instilled in us a notion of what sort of career or lifestyle we should have. Maybe we measure ourselves based on others in society with a different status or income or designation. All too often we have taken on these notions without checking in with our heart center to determine what we truly want for ourselves, despite how little it resembles the expectations of others that have been adopted by us. As a result, we continue to pursue a path that is ill fitted to our true nature.
Perhaps we have already acquired the job or lifestyle or status that others find admirable or enviable, yet we are left wanting. As a result, we attempt to excel even further in our careers or elevate our social status. We acquire even more comforts and conveniences. Yet the sense of dissatisfaction persists.
In both scenarios outlined above, it is intensely difficult to abandon the notion of who we think we are supposed to be, but it is precisely what we need to do. That may mean walking away from years of hard work, even achievement and accomplishment, to simply start anew. We may have to walk into the wilderness with no game plan, no set goal, no notion of where we are bound. However, if we are not satisfied with where we are, why stay? It may mean we will lose everything, but if everything we have leaves us feeling empty already, then we truly have nothing left to lose.
